Illustrator Ale Giorgini creates works which are so densely packed with cult movie characters it’s hard to find all the characters present in each frame.
Ale’s style is reminiscent of the Genndy Tartakovsky cartoon Samurai Jack, and his use of simple color palettes ensures that each piece will fit in with any kind of swanky decor you’ve got going on at your pad.
Pictured here: Star Wars, Ghostbusters, The Blues Brothers, The Goonies, Ed Wood and Back to the Future. Other works include Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and The Big Lebowski.
Shinichi Maruyama, Water Sculpture 2009
I am fascinated by the fragility and incompleteness that exists with all things beautiful. I throw water into the air, and in mid-flight it changes shape constantly, being pulled by gravity and bursting with surface tension. Each flight barely lasts more than a second. In each moment, the water becomes a beautiful figure which can be defined as a part man-made and part natural sculpture. I wanted to capture these beautiful impermanent water sculptures by photographing them in the exact moment, when the essence of their existence is pure.
In art works of Kal Gajoum you can feel warmth and energy, which is often overlooked by contemporary artists. His paintings are both modern and traditional, powerful and delicate, complex and simple. Kal Gajoum is a real colorist whose works fill the room with light. And, it’s probably not just because the artist is well mastered the technique of painting. He really loves his job – and each work radiates this love. And vivid scenes of street life filled with red umbrellas have become a hallmark of the artist.
I had a lot of fun in my ceramics class this summer. I think I’ll be a pioneer in the field of nerd pottery. I’m taking another course in it now and getting better every day. Once I have a collection of quality pieces they’ll be available on etsy.
