Michael Murphy Creates Portrait Out of Brand Logos

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 30, 2015
We’ve posted on a few of Michael Murphy’s mobile-like sculptures, and are fascinated with his newest work: a portrait of his daughter made entirely of one hundred laser cut brand logos. The pieces hang and only line up into an accurate portrait from one vantage point. The piece is an exploration of the term “brand identity,” a commissioned work for the creative consultancy Lippincott. If you peer at the piece from the side, the portrait breaks into a hundred pieces.

Illustration // Wednesday, September 30, 2015

He describes his art as “grotesque illustrations with fair dosage of black humor and twisted characters.” He does commercial illustrations, but on his website you can also find uncommissioned work.

Photography // Tuesday, September 29, 2015
Taratine, is the first US monograph by acclaimed Japanese photographer Daisuke Yokota. Highly regarded for his technical and aesthetic kinships with the avant-garde Mono-ha movement of the '60s and with Provoke-era masters such as Daido Moriyama and Takuma Nakahira, Taratine represents a new direction for Yokota, one that focuses his work for the first time on another Japanese tradition, that of the confessional photographic I-novel.

Photography // Tuesday, September 29, 2015
We’ve posted before on the dark, minimalist portraits of Noell Oszvald. Though she produces photographs, she does not consider herself a photographer, saying that she merely uses photographs as a base for the images she creates. The portraits are aesthetically simple and in black and white, allowing the viewer to focus on Oszvald’s bold compositions.
