Cubic architecture illustrations from French creative Yannick Martin.
Beautiful lighting installation by Venezuelan Artist Carlos Cruz-Diez. Cruz-Diez work is about the viewers interaction without any need for cultural context. He works with silk-screen prints, video, architectural models, and traditional paintings. Olafur Eliasson has done similar chromatic works if you’re interested in seeing more of this kind of stuff.
I saw Why We Build by Rowan Moore in a book shop last week, the cover illustration by Diane Berg really caught my attention. Diane is an Architect and Illustrator based in Bordeaux. After spending time in Bilbao, her interest turned towards the industrial aesthetic and cultural vitality of the city which has became a source of inspiration for her work. Diane now focuses solely on Illustration. Her series of Rem Koolhaas’s house in Bordeaux depicting a cleaning lady working her way around the house are really worth checking out.
Hybrid paintings of animals on photographic portraits from Rennes based French Artish Charlotte
Caron. “Two mediums were used: the painting and photography which allowed me to compare two worlds and to create this duality.” You can find more of Charlotte Caron’s work on her site below.
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.
