The Art Studio of Taylor James

There is always a way to be the center of attention at a party. Tactic #1, shed your skin near the beverage table and/or punch bowl. Taylor James is a conceptual art firm creating clever advertising art, as well as some really interesting conceptual art in this vein you see here.

Taylor James writes of the woman shedding her skin work, "‘Ogilvy HealthWorld’ approached us for production advice on this tricky concept they had for a woman shedding her own skin. Photographic realism was a must for the creative team. Through a short testing process we showed ‘Ogilvy HealthWorld’ that our RealWorld renderingTM process was perfect for creating highly detailed & delicate objects, even this skin suit. Combining photography, CGI and retouching we set about capturing the model in the main poses, then also a 360 of every body part."


These pieces below were created for Kalbitor, a prescription medicine used to treat sudden attacks of hereditary angioedema. Quite striking use of concept and product if you ask us...
