Hybrid Animals by Nicholas Di Genova

November 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Toronto-based artist Nicholas Di Genova illustrates incredible hybrid creatures using nothing more than ink on paper. His terrifying amalgams of reptiles, mammals, aquatic and plant life often feature densely compacted textures of hair and scales that seem to multiply like fractals on the surface of the animal’s skin. Nicholas opened a solo show last week at Galerie Dukan Hourdequin in Paris which will be up through December 3. The images above are amazing, but head over to his Tumblr to see them in more detail.

Sculptures Embedded with Intricate Patterns

October 11, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Several amazing sculptures from Chihyun Shin’s recent exhibition at Gaain Gallery in Seoul. Shin’s objects are created from a delicate layer of interwoven patterns, the shark appears to be embedded with a tightly-knit school of fish, while the chicken, rabbit and person seem to be made of flowers and other plants. I was unable to reliably translate much more from the Korean sites I found these on, so head over to Art Hub and Dinonabi to see more.

Glass Pixel Cell Rabbit by Kohei Nawa

September 25, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Japanese artist Kohei Nawa (previously) just unveiled his latest creation, a small rabbit taxidermy covered in hundreds of translucent glass beads. Nawa refers to this sculpture series as pixel cell animals, and explains that “by covering the surface of an object with transparent glass beads, the existence of the object itself is replaced by ‘a husk of light’, and the new vision ‘the cell of an image’ is shown.” This appears to be his first new pixel cell animal in nearly two years.
