Everybody, at some point, just needs a little bit of love in the middle of the night, whether it be familiar or fleeting. John’s blinking neon invitation welcomes the lonely hearts that meet over a drink, a song, and a roll of the dice.
Protesting the financial and political abuse that’s currently inflating worldwide crisis, Nastplas created these portraits of young and old alike, each tainted by the corrupting and invasive influence of money.
Have you ever been so hungry that you’ve eaten a wooden hamburger? You know, some people in the world are starving right now so who are you to turn down free anything? Antoni’s wood-textured designs go against the grain: they serve as digital representations of wood which serves as visual representations of food, shoes, and your beloved Spongebob. In the René Magritte style of storytelling, this is not food, nor shoes, or mutant underwater sponge creatures, nor is it actually a wooden sculpture. But despite their artificial and transitory nature, they still might have made you hungry.
A bright neon stream of chaos rains down from Tiago’s stormcloud, in a pattern repeated throughout history, no matter who rules or what tragedies befall the land: the rain will continue to fall. The only difference between modern times and back then is now we can listen to invisible rain whenever we need it, instead of being at the whim of disorder.
The artistic engine that we call Victo Ngai continues to power some of the most powerfully vibrant and electrically surreal art that’s not only scalding hot to the touch, but also capable of making you slow down and admire the clockwork mechanics underneath the hood. High quality giclee prints are available over at Victo’s website: victo-ngai
The natural transition from bright to dark throughout the day continues its eternal progression in the transparent sphere of Owen Silverwood’s design, represented by an abstract fluid that undulates beneath the tempest of change.
People like to talk about how important the separation of church and state is, but nobody ever said anything about the separation of church and tanks. Probably an oversight they regret now. Kris’ mixed media constructs combine faith-based architecture with the dominating tread of military might, drawing obvious parallels between the two and paving the way for some badass G.I. Joe future vehicle sets.
Metin Seven pulls back the pixelated curtain of the 8-bit stage to reveal the true nature of your favorite cubist heroes: they were never flat, two-dimensional sprites, the problem was really with our perspective. Just like in real life, taking a look at things from a different angle can expose hidden depth you never knew existed. They’re still totally made out of little blocks though, that part was always true. Prints available at imagekind

The world would be cooler, if not better, place with large animal-like mechas in it. Robert put some insanely meticulous detail into these mobile combat companions, from Barn Owl Recon Units to Kingfisher Snipers, even explaining the mechanical nuances that allow them to move like their counterparts in the nature. You may not be able to “get in the fucking robot”, but when you’ve got a bigass canon, who’s gonna say you can’t ride your combat-ready Grizzly-Mech into battle with the rest of the Robot Bear Cavalry.
We humans are born musical, with the innate ability to discern scales and tempo. Musicophilia is a series that explores the relationship between music and the brain, from our interpretation of sound to the way we process pitch and tonal shifts.
As part of an advertising campaign for the Schusev State Museum of Architecture in Moscow, Saatchi & Saatchi Russia put together a creative team to assemble the deep, labyrinthine roots of some iconic buildings; the shoulders of giants that all current architecture stands atop of. You can see many more WIP shots over at Design You Trust
While creating some cyber terrain in World Machine, Istvan noticed unusual patterns forming with the flow map feature of the erosion device, branching out like tree leaves. The rendering tool was then repurposed FOR ART~!, edited in photoshop to create these unique images that appear to be burned into the background, visible only through the magnetic field-like aura they emit.
