Andreas Gursky | Photographer

No comments... »

Absolutely breathtaking large-scale photography by German visual artist and photographer Andreas Gursky. Before the 1990s, Andreas Gursky did not digitally manipulate his images. But in the following years Gursky has been completely honest about using computers to edit and enhance his photos creating art from the basic images. Via ISO50

Oh the absolute joy it is to see these wonderful pictures from this 1975 IBM Slide Presentation. Today I consider this wonderful presentation some kind of art form and ironic enough 25 years a ago, it was only a presentation. I wonder what will be art in 25 years … Via COLT + RANE

Photographer Damien Blottière made this Calvin Klein S/S2011 ‘Cut & Paste’ editorial for the December 2010 issue of Dazed & Confused. Outstanding work by Blottière who is definitely more a visual artist and art director than a photographer. Via Look in art

Richard Prince | Cowboys and Girlfriends

One comment... »

‘Cowboys and Girlfriends’ (1992) is an outstanding photo series by American painter and photographer Richard Prince. I love everything about these photos – the colors, the feel of texture and the overall coolness. In this series Prince has combined two larger series of photographs he made in the 80s. The archetypal cowboy images, though cropped, are reproduced facsimiles of originals from the Marlboro advertisements. The artist began rephotographing them after the company became the target of an antismoking campaign and was forced to stop using its famous model, the Marlboro Man. In Prince’s rendition, this “true American” is ironically turned from a hero into a survivor. The Girlfriends pictures in this series are borrowed from ads placed by women in biker magazines.

Black Swan | Limited Edition Poster

5 comments... »

It’s not often you see official released movie posters with such a stunning graphic line. Obviously very art deco inspired. Unfortunately I don’t have any information about who the artist is, so please let me know if you do. UPDATE: Emily from Emily Forgot just informed that the posters are made by La Boca – a London-based design circus. These are of course posters for the soon to come “Black Swan” starring Natalie Portman, directed by Darren Aronofsky. Via Design Work Life

Nicholas Di Genova | Artist

Nothing short of fantastic drawings by Canadian artist Nicholas Di Genova. Incredible details and the level of imagination is beyond mindblowing. “When I was a kid growing up I was obsessed with animals and monsters… I’d draw them everyday, and when I grew up I either wanted to be a zoologist or a monster hunter… When I got a bit older I realized that being a zoologist was less exciting than I had imagined, and that ‘monster hunter’ isn’t even a real job, so I just kept drawing. I pretty much do the exact same thing at 29 years old that I did when I was 9 years old.” Via We Find Wildness
