In this photography series Ozkar focused on a cool detail about the art of graffiti – it’s messy and adds color to your garments.
It’s difficult to completely present Jim Cowan’s project l’Inconnu because it spreads across three different series, but the idea behind these portraits is quite fascinating in essence. The project is split between three parts, the first capturing the white ageless and almost genderless faces, the second (featured here) focusing more on the balance between creation/destruction and body/sculpture, whereas the final is more focused on threshold between life and death.
Although tackling some gigantic themes I find Jim’s series really well put together and this part in particular does a great job at illustrating the fine and fragile line between aesthetic perfection and destruction.
It’s hard for me to describe how much I adore Julia Hetta’s photography. She is able to captures images of such perfection it’s as if they were photorealistic paintings. This series blends so many aesthetically beautiful details together – the wrinkles in the textiles seem to layer upon the softly textured background – while the soft focus, along the model’s wet hair and clothing, give an impression of paintbrush strokes. As I said, it’s hard to make sense of this through words.
There’s a great sort of chaotic energy that runs through Daniels’ visual art pieces. He mixes all sorts of elements, from music score sheets to geometrical shapes, as well as Disney characters! All of these contrasting images are juxtaposed together and held with explosions of colorful patterns of paint.
Artist Arian Behzadi seems to explore many types of techniques throughout his series of works, all revolving around blending photography and other elements such as paint or collages together. His work is very minimal in its use of photography, giving the impression that each model ‘cut-out’ is bathing in warm colors.
Angela Ferreira (aka Kruella D’Enfer) was born on Halloween, and she claims that this is the reason for her fascination with the surreal and sometimes strange worlds that live in her art. All I can say if I love the way Angela varies her illustrations, always bringing a new element in and adding to these wonderful worlds.
She’s found subtle ways of blending paint, markers and sprays into her creations, adding to the complexity of her works.
Elizaveta’s Gold Project is a beautiful, surreal experience. Using gold paint to cover one’s body and taking pictures of it is not unheard of, yet in this case the results are certainly unparalleled.
These photographs are sharp and perfectly executed, I love the delicate way Elizaveta freezes the movement of smoke, paint, water and bodies.
