Deconstruction

Deconstruction is a series that shows my vision about deformity but also about rebuilding my subjective vision and reality. This way, my architectural vision engages a new aesthetic with the occupation of space. So, in that way, deconstruction is a form that reaches a new balance; it's a way to reach aesthetic construction.

Darker

In the last 3 or 4 years a darkness has crept into my work. I was asked to make a lot of drawings about the unsavory side of our digital life and sometimes its connection to crime and mental health. As a collection I think they reflect an undercurrent of our life and our collective emotional world. These drawings were published in The New York Times, Der Spiegel, The Outline and many other publications.

Color Landscapes by Shawn Tang

COLOR Landscapes should be neutral. Often times places are been portrayed by medias and perceived by people with certain fixed characters, but what this does is to only undermine what a place has to offer and ultimately limits us in finding the unseen aspects of it. Landscapes should be unpredictable. Going to a place expecting something to happen is never the way to go, because surprising moments are subjective to different eyes. Colors, in a way that it gifts a landscape a character, is the key in keeping the neutrality and originality of a landscape to itself. Many people nowadays tend to modify the colors of a photo in order to create a mood that does not otherwise exists, and that is a crime, because they killed the moment and everything that was framed at that time of place. Be true to the color and take in the moment from the nature, then give them all back through the photographs captured, whatever comes after should be left for people to experience and wander.

South Beach

My South Beach series started as me wandering around South Beach taking photos, then it continued to grow every time I visited. Most of the photos are around the south end of South Beach. I shoot during all times of the year and most often in the early to mid afternoon when the sun is highest and the crowds are largest.

Urban Suprematism

In my series ‘Urban Suprematism’ I wanted to combine the visual language of graphic design and photography, using two skill sets. ​​​​​​​I studied graphic design, and I’m interested in abstract photographs, like the works of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, so I started researching the connections between abstract photography and the traditional art forms like painting, and graphic design. The series is a study of the meeting points of constructivist and suprematist art and urban minimalist photography. We can find similar elements in both of them, focusing on basic geometric forms, such as squares, circles, and diagonal lines. I found that these art compositions are re-constructable in everyday urban landscapes in a two-dimensional graphic form.

Illustrations by Oleg Buevskiy

My name is Oleg Buevskiy, and I am a graphic artist from Russia. I like to think of my pictures as something like abstract posters for nonexistent movies. I also like drawing strange characters, who might even be the heroes of these movies.

Illustrations by Friederike Hantel

Art is a powerful instrument and will be always highly important. Art observes and reflects our culture independently. It shares an open view on our period, the society, and of course it inspires! I started creating my own art to understand my being. For me, art is a process of understanding, reflecting, and learning about life in general, and the results, I try to share with my images.

Illustrations by Jacob Myrick

The things I make live somewhere in the borderlands between the narrative and the conceptual, snapshots of a surreal universe sprung into existence from an op-ed. I'm inspired a lot by diorama and how they catapult the viewer into a position of non-interactive observer from outside a created universe. I think my work seeks to capture that feeling - wondering who these characters are and why they are doing the things they are doing. Understanding their emotional truth even though they are somewhat alien…

Street Art by Emily Eldridge

Bringing aspects of a background in illustration to the often-male-dominated world of street art (which at times can feel quite rough-and-tumble) this series aims to bring a softer, female presence to the street art and graffiti stage. Created almost exclusively in Barcelona and surround, (with the exception of a building-sized work in Hong Kong), the mural series depicts female characters, strange plants and flowers in flat, shockingly bright color, with curved lines and pattern-like forms - an exercise in taking illustrations and surface pattern from the page to wall-sized works…

Les Beaux Jours

For the opening of their new pop up store in Paris, Bureau Patio asked me to create illustrations on this nice theme : Les Beaux Jours (The Beautiful Days). this how we call the spring here. The idea was to portray people getting decorated by plants. Leaves and fruits are becoming jewels and crowns. I tried to keep the handmade feel that I love and work with spot color to be as simple as I can. They were beautifully printed in risography by Quintal Editions…
