Dripped Plasticine Portraits

November 29, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Mondongo (Spanish for tripe) are an Argentinian art collective consisting of Juliana Laffitte, Manuel Mendanha and Agustina Picasso who work primarily with delicately dripped and molded plasticine. I was struck by the vibrant colors used in these particular pieces, wondering how much time it would take to create the myriad colors and apply them so precisely to a canvas. Amazing. The bulk of their work is actually quite sexually explicit compared to these, so beware your additional research. The group will have new work on display at Art Basel Miami later this week.

Faces by Róbert Oláh

Christopher Jobson

Róbert Oláh is a 20-year-old student at Moholy-Nagy University in Budapest who is currently exploring graphic, web and sound design. His Faces series caught my eye, as they were just unlike anything I’ve seen before, and I can only hope he continues to explore this style. Intriguing work.

Self-taught artist Lou Ros began his career by tagging walls and buildings with friends at the age of 17. Now 26, he’s exhibiting his paintings worldwide with no less than seven upcoming group and solo exhibitions in Miami, New York, Paris and elsewhere. Some of the pieces above are from his Faces series, many of which were shown at an exhibition earlier this spring at Tache Gallery. (via art fixx)

Composite Photograph Made from 500 Self-Portraits

November 1, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Ever since photographer Noah Kalina began his Everyday portrait project 11 years ago (I had no idea he was still actively photographing himself, talk about commitment) there have been hundreds of inspired photogs snapping daily self-portraits. Flickr user clickflashwhir is one of these people, taking hundreds of portraits over the past several years. Tiemen Rapati downloaded 500 of her photos and created this beautiful composite image by finding an average RGB value for each pixel and dividing it by the total number of portraits. I have no idea how this is done, but I bet it involves computers. It’s amazing how surgically accurate she must sit, I assume using her eyes to align each shot. Really stunning. Just a note, though it says Tiemen used 400 photos on Flickr, he averaged in another 100 for this post. (via feltron)

Root Sculptures by Kim Sun Hyuk

I’m enjoying these metallic sculptures depicting human root systems by South Korean artist Kim Sun Hyuk from his series Drawn by Life. Unfortunately I couldn’t find better images, but I think this gets the idea across. (via neolook)
