THIS. This is what 3D printing was invented for! Peiqi Su, a student at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, created a wall of dancing schlongs to the tune of Tchaikovsky’s ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’. A world renowned Russian composer and a wall of penises, who’d have thought?
People who were lucky – or unlucky – enough to be in London for the ‘Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season’ DVD release, were treated to a perilous and deadly climb over the famous ice barrier that Jon Snow and Ygritte once faced.
London-based creative Lex Wilson made a series of illustration experiments using typography, 3D art, and a lot of perspective. He uses the viewer’s perspective to create optical illusions of type that seem to pop in and out of the page.
Exploring the notion of destruction and beauty is the motivation behind artist and visionary Eyal Gever. Having graduated from the renowned Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Gever decided in 2010 to dedicate his time exclusively to creating art. Using the 3D physical simulation technologies he developed, he creates collisions of opposites to create impressive […]
Erik Patton has been working for The MoMA for a few years, so it’s no surprise he has a good eye for art. His work, he says, is ‘meant to challenge traditional notions of femininity and masculinity in a playful (and almost dress-up like) manner’. Patton aims ‘to create meta-sexuals whose identities are not constrained […]
At first glance, the work of Dutch artist Ramon Bruin appears to be a variety of three dimensional sculptures. But further inspection reveals the works to actually be sublimely executed anamorphic graphite drawings. Marvelous!
Since the 1970s, Alice Aycock has been erecting incredible, monumental sculptures. Most of them are made of natural materials and seem to be built right into an outdoor landscape as an almost natural cathedral. Her art is calming and worshipful, seemingly there to remind us all just how small we really are.
Maud Vantours’s 3D paper sculptures are a great example of how complex a simple visual can be. Each piece is elegant and rhythmic, but the detail and precision behind the sculptures is just as impressive.
Australian-born graffiti artist Jimmy Cochran has painted walls from the Bronx to Berlin and is recognized equally in fine art galleries as graffiti street tours in London. Last month, Cochran unveiled his latest project, pushing the boundaries of his pointillist-inspired art style with 3D graffiti techniques.
Who knew that pencil art could be so multi-dimensional and layered? These incredible illustrations by young Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki are created using the projection technique, Anamorphosis, which gives the images a three-dimensional appearance when viewed from certain angles.
Melbourne-based artist Karryn Argus is concerned with objects, interiors and spacial interventions. Starting off as a painter, she is now working primarily in 3D. Her current project explores the inter-relationship between art objects and the viewer.
The use of layers to create 3D images is a long praised technique. Salvador Dali was, in fact, inspired by the use of layering to create three-dimensional atmospheres in the theater. But Riusuke Fukahori’s might be the most advanced, and arguably prettiest, application of the technique.
There’s something a bit terrifying about Laura Plansker’s nostalgic 3D illustrations. I suppose that’s why I like them so much. Like, check out that ham. It has legs but no arms! Freaky.
Master of incredibly detailed and macabre resin sculptures Paul Komoda did 3D and 2D creature design work for the upcoming prequel to The Thing, one of my favorite movies of all time. Check out some of his drawings and sculptures for the movie on his Facebook page.
