Ori Toor: We love the work of artist and graphic designer Ori Toor who is having fun with his project Looopism – creating abstract animated GIFs, which are full of colour and somewhat mesmerising, mixing organic and geometric shapes into beautiful infinite loops.

Loving Vincent Trailer is a Must-Watch

Loving Vincent is an upcoming short film in tribute to Vincent van Gogh

Loving Vincent: We love this first trailer for the upcoming Loving Vincent, an impressive short film in tribute to Vincent van Gogh, which was made with twelve oil paintings per second and achieved by over one hundred painters. Conceived by Polish directors Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, every painter had to follow three week’s intensive training to learn the style of the famous painter and master various stop motion software. Production of the film continues until late August 2016.

James Rawson’s Postmodern Pop Art

James Rawson mixes painting & collage to create colourful pop cultural compositions

James Rawson: We love the paintings of British artist James Rawson, defined as a postmodern pop artist, who blends painting and collage to create explosive and colourful compositions filled with references to movies, brands, comics, and other iconic pop cultural products and objects. While his work reflects on popular culture of the last 50 years, James Rawson also depicts associated social problems such as over-consumption, poverty, junk food, and the omnipresence of advertising. We’d kill for one of his pieces on our wall – awesome work! 🙂
