An animator of unmatched creativity, Blu’s films are like M.C. Escher on acid. Fascinating as they are creepy to watch, you’ll find his shorts harder to turn away from than a 20 car pile-up. Just to be clear, when I say shorts, I’m talking about his films.
I feel like Rotterdam-based artist Daan Botlek could make some really disturbing and effective infographics. He combines the impulsive busy-ness of Keith Herring with the mind-bending surrealism of M.C.Escher.
Watching this Shinya Sato directed M.C. Escher-inspired video for Chateau Marmont’s song One Hundred Realities will make you want to grab a bong and skip doing your homework. It’s a futuro sound with retro, tripped out visuals.
