Surreal images from a new photographic book project called ‘Dream Sequence‘ by London based creative Sylwana Zybura aka Madame Peripetie. These images were made using body painting, prosthetics, wigs and 3D make-up techniques with only minimal computer retouching and the book is available here.
Sure what’s a web site these days without at least one reference to Miley Cyrus so here’s some work from Canadian designer Christopher Lee Sauvé’s Mad Maus series, ‘a marriage between infamous Mickey ears and iconic figures’. All these are available as t-shirts through his site.
Venetian images from LA based photographer Mona Kuhn. Born in Brazil with German parents, Mona’s work is mainly figurative but seems to take studies of the surrounding landscape during shoots. I really like these semi submerged photographs of the Venetian waterways. Mona Kuhn is represented by the Flowers Gallery in London and New York, and you can find more work on her site below.
Beautiful illustrations from Finnish born, Berlin based creative Riikka Sormunen. Working mainly in watercolor with limited pallet, her work has been exhibited in Finland, the United States,
Spain, Taiwan, and South Africa. Riikka Sormunen is represented by Napa Illustrations in Helsinki and her work is currently being showcased in the latest edition of Big Mother from Nobrow (limited to 2000 copies) available here.
Minimalist line work and mad sculptures with a bit of tongue in cheek from Dutch artist Parra. The video below is the making of a 60 foot mural for the Weirded Out exhibition at SFMOMA this year. The multifaceted Parra is also co-founder of cult apparel label Rockwell Clothing and a member of electronic music group Le Le.
Beautiful fragmented photography from Szymon Roginski. This project was put together for Polish Fashion Designer Ania Kuczynska. Influenced by the Cublist who’s work attempted to break the two dimensions of painting. The photographs were built into hundreds of hand made solid shapes and rearranged to create these images. You should check out the rest of Szymon Roginski’s work on his site below, he’s got some amazing images from his travels in America and Asia.
Mads Perch’s list of clients reads like a who’s who of some of the best bands at the moment. Mads is a Danish born; London based Photographer and has shot for i-D magazine and produced independent work for the Klazons, James Murphy, Clock Opera, Grizzly Bear, Annie Mac, Gold Panda and Hudson Mohawke.
Triangulated timber blankets from German designer Elisa Strozyk. I’m not sure how comfortable these would be but they look pretty cool. They are made by bonding thin lazer cut timber pieces to fabric, bending in different ways depending on the pattern. Elisa has used this triangulation principle on her designs for carpets, wallpaper, furniture and a collaboration with fashion designer Maria Bonita.
Incredible work from french design studio HELMO (Thomas Couderc and Clément Vauchez). I love their technique of cleverly intertwining colour, form and type, coming at poster design in really innovative ways.
For “Bêtes de mode” (Fashion Animals) the blue and red animal / human portraits were displayed in the windows if Galleries Lafayette, Paris. Transparent panels of Red and Blue were placed onto the panes of glass to alternate the visible images, a bit like those old-fashioned 3D glasses.
You can find loads more of HELMO’s work on their site below.
I saw this video over on Booooooom and was blown away. Simple concept but just looks amazing!
