Xiao Xiaowan y David Spriggs: Fantásticas pinturas tridimensionales | Artematriz.com Imagen: El trabajo realizado por los pintores Xiao Xiaowan y David Spriggs, se basa en la transformación de la pintura plana a una escultura tridimensional utilizando capas múltiples de vidrio, creando figuras similares a los hologramas pero de notable estética. Ambos artistas, logran ofrecer al espectador distintos rostros de un mismo trabajo, dependiendo del lugar donde se sitúe el observador. Xiaowan, denomina a su trabajo como “pintura espacial”, que consiste en distorsionar las figuras, atrapando a las bestias, siluetas fantasmagóricas o monstruos en los vidrios, logrando dar a conocer lo bizarro del mundo actual. Spriggs, por su parte, nombra a su obra “esculturas animadas”, creando imágenes explosivas: detonaciones, pirotecnia, tormentas, etc; todo bajo el vidrio. Una de las tantas pinturas de Xiao Xiaowan.

Jeremy Geddes Chuck Redux Cartoon Modern :: Cliff Roberts Illustrator Eric Sturdevant has posted some terrific Cliff Roberts illustrations on his blog Fun All Around . Roberts (1929-1996) drew these illustrations for the FORD TIMES in the late-1940s while living in Detroit. Right around the time he made these illustrations, he also began to work in animation at Detroit’s Jam Handy Organization. Gene Deitch writes more about Roberts’s early animation career in his on-line autobiography . The first animated work that Roberts designed at Jam Handy was the industrial film BUILDING FRIENDS FOR BUSINESS (1950). Here’s a cel setup from it: In the 1950s, he became one of animation’s major character designers on the East Coast and there’s a lot more written about him in my book.

{Jana Brike art} official page Artista recrea nubes en el interior de una galería Entre el angel y el fantasma emergen coquetas nubes que quedan suspendidas al interior de espacios vacíos dentro de una galería. De acuerdo al sitio web Pijamasurf, se trata de la obra del artista holandés Berndaut Smilde, quien logra reproducir nubes “reales” en interiores. A diferencia de proyectos “similares” en los que artistas recurren a ilusiones ópticas, tecnologías digitales, o extrañas combinaciones de polímeros para recrear elementos que remitan a entidades nubosas, y cuyas obras distan de consumar la ligereza estética que se alcanza en este caso, Smilde utiliza una combinación entre humo, humedad, y precisión lumínica, que le permiten crear estos seres tan deleitables como efímeros. Fue en 2010 cuando el holandés obtuvo el primero de los resultados de su larga experimentación con estos cuerpos. Para más información sobre la obra de Smilde visita su sitio oficial:
