Art by Tuomas Ikonen

Illustration // Tuesday, November 19, 2013
"Joy and the adorably gross sit comfortably together in the world designed by Tuomas Ikonen. Whether it's a brain taking a stroll or a two-headed worlf taking on a bunch of snakes, it's the fun mix of light and dark that keeps Tuomas' work light-hearted." Based in Finland, Ikonen imbues the digital medium with a wonderful level of tactility, creating artwork that is incredibly clean while feeling almost hand-made.

Hyperrealistic Portraits by Bryan Drury

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 19, 2013
This morning we feature the strange the hyperreal paintings of New York-based artist Bryan Drury. Stemming from a desire to challenge the conventions of traditional portraiture, Drury carefully selected affluent members of society to sit for him, and rather than acquiescing to expectations of flattery, he exploits the power of oil paint to describe their corporeal flaws as precisely as possible. Finding liberation in this reversal of patronage roles, Drury focuses on the organic quality of the flesh and shows the animalistic side of humans that we so commonly attempt to conceal.

We love this series of digital sculptures by Chris Labrooy titled "Auto Aerobics." Chris has exhibited at the design museum in London and been featured in various publications, exploring CGI as a creative medium in itself which he could subvert and twist familiar everyday things into new typographic and sculptural form. He is interested in the intersection between typography, architecture, product design and visual art.
