One of my favorite painters and artists of all time is Piet Mondrian. He was an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement and some of his most iconic work is made of primary colors and simple forms like the infamous Composition with Yellow, Blue and Red. I love the simplicity of his work and typically any artwork that follows this style. Enter this post, inspired by the late, great Mondrian.
I'm a Brazilian product designer based in Oakland, California currently working for Google as a Staff Designer. I am also the founder of Abduzeedo, an award-winning digital publication about design and a personal project that has become the source of inspiration for millions of designers and enthusiasts.
Nothing like a fresh 3D set to start the day. It's awesome that artists get to come up with so many cool creations, like these by Patrick Foley. These are some very cool abstract scenes, in which materials, textures and lighting are the main characters.
As usual, these are only a handful of his works. For more of it, please visit his Instagram account! I hope you enjoy these as much as we did. Cheers! ;)
Nowadays, almost every photographer use graphics software to completer the picture, like many painters used a "original version" in the past. Some artists use pure imagination to paint their artworks, other may prefer to create art by using a real life model as reference for the anatomy.
What if these abstract models were real people?
Mixing typography with abstract art is quite an endeavor, but that was something that Jaroslav Hach decided to face and we think he nailed the challenge. The result is an intricate and exquisite set of letters that sometimes look like they are coming from an interstellar civilization. From his own words, Hach describes the font, Shape Typeface, as an abstract font composed of various shapes including spheres, cubes, rectangles and triangles.
