ARTIST OF THE WEEK #13 _ ANNU KILPELÄINEN

1_annukil-flowersonacar

Born in Finland in 1985 and now a fully-fledged East London dweller, Illustrator
Annu Kilpeläinen has long been making a name for herself with her
abstract drawings, featuring at a long list of exhibitions including
Pick Me Up graphic art festival.

Drawing inspiration from people, landscapes and cars, Annu
merges her unique view on surreal subjects with a vibrant and intense colour palette –
warming up your eyeballs during these cold winter months.

“It’s fun to think of things in real life as slow-motion film clips, and focus on what
is happening in the surrounding world to create a form of ‘screenshot’ artwork.
I tend to favour clashing a lot of colours together as it adds extra tension to
my illustrations.” – Annu Kilpeläinen –

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #12 _ ROCIO MONTOYA

Hypopompic-by-Rocio-Montoya-01-750x499

This series of collages born as an aesthetic experiment that evokes the well known effect
of “sleep paralysis” a state in which anything seems possible and that is sometimes so
real that the memory remains latent in the retina and in the subconscious as a reality.
Under the inspirational influence of surrealism and classical Raphaelite painting,
Hypnopompic reflects on the delicacy of the female figure in synergy with nature, as an ode
to the ephemeral beauty and fragility of human beings. The portraits have been made by
the artist Rocio Montoya and intervened with the technique of handmade collage,
using symbolic elements extracted from old botanical illustrations and various print magazines.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #11 _ MATT CRUMP

tumblr_nb16s6L2V31thz0kjo1_1280

With no more than one glance at Matt Crump’s site photography series,
you will understand why he rightfully is the “Candyman of Minimalism”.
His work is a real pleasure to the eye of the viewer, as Crump has
his way of detecting the eye-catching and curvaceous parts of the sites
he comes across, and capturing them in colorful backdrops.
The mixing of fun and abstracted aesthetics produces a delightful result,
justifying his big following audience across Russia, Czech Republic,
and parts of rural America.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #10 _ CHRISTOPHE GUINET (“Mr. Plant”)

justgrowit_art_01

Nature is the key component for Paris-born artist Christophe Guinet,
also known as “Mr. Plant”.
As a teenager he was always very much in touch with nature, a fascination
that he later combined with the urban street art inspired by skate and fashion.

Always eager to discover nature in a new composition, traveling has made him
develop new perspectives for plants in different types of media via collage,
photography, graphic design and sculpture.

The Plant Monsieur used Nike sneakers as a canvas to create handcrafted flower
and tree bark sculptures.
Through the sneakers his artistic aim is to express a critique of our consumer culture,
an important perspective of going back to the source; nature and its purity.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK #8 _ SANDRO GIORDANO

Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 10.49.15

Sandro Giordano is an Italian photographer who builds elaborate setups involving people
falling down and their stuff flying everywhere. That’s it. That’s his thing. And why not?
Humans are programmed to find faceplants funny.
“My photographs are short stories about a falling-down world,” he says.
“Each shot tells of worn-out characters who, as if a sudden black-out of mind and body took over,
let themselves crash with no attempt to save themselves because of fatigue.
They reach their limit beyond which their false self cannot go.”
Sandro is gaining a huge following for his colorful schadenfreude. Are you listening,
designers and models? Don’t forget to get your rest and take your vitamins.
And when someone says ‘break a leg, ‘please don’t actually break a leg or other limb like
Sandro’s poor souls (who, by the way, are live models asked to hold those poses for hours).
Safety first!
