Refik Anadol is a media artist and designer based in Los Angeles, USA. Focusing on Architecture, Digital Art and animations, Refik created this stunning public art commission for 350 Mission Building in City of San Francisco, California. The main idea of ‘Virtual Depictions:San Francisco’ is to bring 21st century approach to public art to define new poetics of space through media arts and architecture and to create a unique parametric data sculptures that has an intelligence, memory and culture. Through architectural transformations of media wall located in 350 Mission’ lobby, main motivation with this seminal media architecture approach is to frame this experience with a meticulously abstract and cinematic site-specific data-driven narration. As a result, this media wall turns into a spectacular public event making direct and phantasmagorical connections to its surroundings through simultaneous juxtapositions. The project also intends to contribute to contemporary discourse of public art by proposing a hybrid blend of media arts and architecture in 21st century.

Fantastic Beasts by Jade Mere

Fantastic Beasts by Jade Mere

I really dig when an artist starts a series of illustration with a certain theme. To see a set of artworks with cohesive style is pretty awesome, and when I got to find the work of American illustrator Jade Mere I felt the urge to share it so that everyone could appreciate it. These are some very nice pieces featuring fantastic beasts. What I find to be the coolest part of it is that what makes most of these fantastic is a not crazy form or an alien-like anatomy, but the details, like a stripe, a color, an arabesque. It's like something you'd see in the Narnia universe. Pretty awesome! For more of Jade's work, please visit her portfolio at ArtStation! Cheers. ;)

Unfold 01 Light Canvas

Unfold 01 Light Canvas

Unfold Series is an ongoing form experiment inspired by the phenomenon of morphogenesis (from Greek, “beginning of the shape”, the biological process that causes an organism to develop its shape). My aim with this study is to create large scale audio/visual installations as a type of kinetic sculpture using light and sound. I created this particular version for Prizma Group Show 02 and experimented with light on the flat surface of printed canvas as step one, before moving to work on physical application of the form.

Starfleet Jerks

Starfleet Jerks

A few weeks ago we posted a super cool poster created by Flavio Montiel. Today we share another great work from this talented art director, digital artist and illustrator from Brazil. The title of the artwork is 'Starfleet Jerks' and the reason it deserves this feature is, in my opinion, the beautiful light effects mixed with textures and that always pleasant retro look.
