Both contemporary and classic, Jiri Geller Sculptures are a vivid depiction of color, imagination and courage. He bravely combines unconventional elements I find absolutely refreshing. A silversmith with a penchant for cartoonish sculptures living in Helsinki, Finland is easily one of my favorite visual artists. See and decide for yourself.

The Impressive Work of Florian Nicolle

 

Florian Nicolle is a young artist from France. With a unique style combining monochromatic drawings (one color) with uniquely scripted text. I noticed his rendition of Barack Obama which impressed me. "I draw a picture as if I wrote a text, with the same tool, the same freedom, with erasers, lines, scribbles-what is written does not matter," says Florian, who also goes by 'NEO,' of his style.

Self-taught painter and renowned British ‘street’ artist Adam Neate has a new exhibition at Elms Lester Painting Rooms. With a very distinctive style, his ’3D’ paintings look like a modern remix of Dali, Bacon and Picasso. Neat’s used to give away his work to friends and donate it to charity shops, until he realized  the charity shops binned these offerings rather than selling them. After realizing this he started leaving them in the street instead, for any discerning passer-by to take. Over a 5-year period he left thousands of works all over London…

Skateboard Sculptures by Haroshi PDF Print E-mail

Haroshi makes his art pieces recycling old used skateboards. His creations are born through styles such as wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels; where each element, either cut out in different shapes or kept in their original form, are connected in different styles, and shaven into the form of the final art piece. Haroshi became infatuated with skateboarding in his early teens, and is still a passionate skater at present. He knows thoroughly all the parts of the skateboard deck, such as the shape, concave, truck, and wheels. He often feels attached to trucks with the shaft visible, goes around picking up and collecting broken skateboard parts, and feels reluctant to throw away crashed skateboards. It’s only natural that he began to make art pieces (i.e. recycling) by using skateboards. To Haroshi, his art pieces are equal to his skateboards, and that means they are his life itself. They’re his communication tool with both himself, and the outside world.

The most important style of Haroshi’s three-dimensional art piece is the wooden mosaic. In order to make a sculpture out of a thin skateboard deck, one must stack many layers. But skate decks are already processed products, and not flat like a piece of wood freshly cut out from a tree. Moreover, skateboards may seem like they’re all in the same shape, but actually, their structure varies according to the factory, brand, and popular skaters’ signature models. With his experience and almost crazy knowledge of skateboards, Haroshi is able to differentiate from thousands of used deck stocks, which deck fits with which when stacked. After the decks are chosen and stacked, they are cut, shaven, and polished with his favorite tools.
