Ruslan Khasanov, a Russian photographer and graphic designer, was inspired to create Pacific Light after cooking with a combination of oil and soy sauce. He noticed how the sauce forms beads in the mixture and soon began playing around with other liquids to come up with what we see now in his latest video – […]
Ever since the computer began to conquer our private space, there’s very few areas which have remained untouched. Even the arts got fascinated by these little machines and the possibilities they offer, experimenting with binary codes, algorithms and randomly generated patterns. These abstract pieces by Siebren Versteeg seem different, though, because his ever-evolving algorithm considers […]
It’s amazing. Seen via This Is Colossal, Russian artist Tebe Interesno does all these crazily beautiful and surreal digital images that are pretty brilliant. Dinos photobombing astronauts on the moon — who would have thought?
These mixed media illustrations by Archann are gorgeous. I’m overwhelmed by the energy being given off by the combinations of color and texture. The impact of using hand-drawn elements mixed with digital art is wonderful. Archann has used his skills for a wide variety of audiences and I’d say it’s pretty obvious why everyone loves his work.
A visual poet, Japanese digital artist HR-FM seeks to create scenes called “the future past” that combine elements of pop culture in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Bordering on modern cubism, each piece demonstrates the ravages of time on buildings, people, and material possessions.
Australian born, New York-based Justin Maller has a new project, Run Your Jewels, which has brought back online collaboration in full force. The website features a new competition every two weeks. In the first week, a new contributor, handpicked by Maller, uploads a high resolution image that the public has until the end of week to finish remixing. In the second week, voting takes place on the remixed images by the creator of the source image, Maller, and the public. The project has provided a unique opportunity for artists to collaborate with and even win prizes from household names like Joshua Davis and Chuck Anderson.
Assuming the dual identities of a computer scientist and visual artist, David Hart’s endlessly mesmerizing digital images fascinate and inspire a sense of awe. Working with a process that involves interactive artificial evolution, a computational analogy to natural selection, Hart ‘grows’ his images using mathematical equations and software that he has written himself.

Satoru Imatake is a Japanese digital and mixed media artist. Imatake’s work depicts mass produced businessmen that move on capitalism’s conveyor belt, where they travel to work in an uncannily realistic world built by the products of their labour. So much so that they themselves look like products.
It is no secret that I am a sucker for great concept art, so it goes without saying that Thomas Pringle is pretty high on my list of guys doing what I would like to be doing: creating massive craft inhabiting impossible worlds that we all wish we could see for ourselves. Of course, until that world presents itself, we’ll have to keep looking over the shoulders of the guys with wicked imaginations.
Karan Singh is an Australian artist and designer currently residing in New York City. Her work carries a certain playfulness and vibrance which has enticed clients like Wired Magazine, Computer Arts and GQ.
Mind State is one of those amazing but under-rated illustrators. When I first came across his work, I fell in love with it right away. Those bright colours and crazy symbols just blow my mind. I think his best work is his Mandala collection. Finally, a series of illustrations with meaning and culture, without skulls and half-naked girls.
The artist behind these illustrations creates virtual objects. He draws the objects, such as dice or a guitar, by keeping minimalist lines, which are characteristic of it. Then he just adds some lights here and there to give depth and an ultra-realistic aspect.
Born and raised in the Philippines, Christian San Jose (also known as csj89) creates lovely digital images and was commissioned by Adobe to create a tutorial for Illustrator CS5. His works have been sold all around the world. And he’s only 22 years old.
Max Capacity is one of the forerunners on the front of a digital art trend which is to bring everything back into the analog days by crushing down the image and making it feel like some bootleg video that you’re VCR is finally chewing up. That’s the result that Max gets by using VHS cameras and older TVs to record and re-record and image losing quality and adding visual analog distortion along the way. He does video installations and music videos for bands like Anamanaguchi and Fidlar, incorporating his style of 80s/90s video game nostalgia into their songs and live performances.
While Petra Cortright’s irreverent new media work that incorporates animated gifs and tacky web symbols and emoticons is generally amusing, her series Portraits II is particularly amazing, the digitally smeared images becoming beautiful still-lifes and haunting portraits that truly transcend their source photos.
