Because we are at the end of the year, we are having some more playful posts on the site this week. INeedAGuide posted these amazingly bizarre photo manipulations from Japanese artist Izumi Miyazaki, and we like it when artists take the Murakami/magical realist vibe and make it even more surreal.

We showed some of the digital portraits of Kemi Mai on the site before, but because we are going through the year, looking back at some of the new faces we met, we wanted to look at some of the updated works of the Manchester, UK artist.

We loved Chris Labrooy's "Auto Aerobics" and were excited to see he's back with more digital art, this time exploring tales of auto elasticity! 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.

Life, identity, reality, status quo, intention and purpose... From very young, Luis Toledo, or La Prisa Mata, has explored our inquisitive reality, analyzing the hidden meaning of every image, and dissecting the mystery of beauty. As a meticulous collector, he gathers illustrations, textures, and fragments to create and built his images from. I recently ran into a series of works from Toledo 'Humans', depicting the form and figure in his usual insanley intricate and detailed collage process.

Mexico-based digital artist and photo manipulator Pierre Fudaryli is throwing us for a nice loop this morning as we gather our heads around this dark, stunning, and disturbingly absorbing series of works. The work is like a mixture of late-era Pink Floyd covers meets Dali meets an upsetting peyote afternoon.

Leif Podhajsky, who is featured in our August 2014 issue (on newsstands now), will be opening an exhibition at Galerie Hors-Champs in Paris this Thursday, July 24th, 2014. "The creative peak of album covers lasted from the late 60s throughout the 70s. If visual artist Leif Podhajsky currently has such a reputation, it certainly stems from the sudden interest in the new generations are to psychedelia...

Over the past decade, the worlds of design, fine art and commercial art have become more blurred than ever. We sat down with Jules Julien, one of Europe’s multi-dimensional talents, to discuss his emergence as an international commercial designer whose recognition has forged a bridge to the province of exhibition art.

Artist Dan Luvisi has taken all of our favorite loveable cartoon characters and re-imagined them as psychopathic killers. We are a little hurt that he would do such a thing, how could he do that to our beloved Kermit? And the Cookie Monster?? Well, at least that one makes sense. He is an addict and has a problem. We have no words for Donald Duck.

As you know by now, the Andy Warhol Museum recently announced newly-discovered experiments created by Andy Warhol on an Amiga computer in 1985. Warhol’s saved files, trapped on Amiga floppy disks held by The Warhol’s archives collection, were extracted by members of the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Computer Club and its Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry in a complex recovery process...
