Liz Collini Typography

Under - Art, Design, Typography

Some incredible typography by London based artist Liz Collini.

I make different forms of texts using simple but often ambiguous words and phrases, mostly through printmaking and drawing. The written word holds many paradoxes, not least those of absence and presence. There are gaps and overlaps between reading and viewing, text and image, the hand and the machine. I try to create breathing spaces in which we can pause and look back at language. Whole narratives can be compressed into a single word or familiar phrase. The drawings’ resemblance to plans and blueprints reflects the strange provisionality of written language; the things about which we write are always elsewhere. I work only with Times New Roman (the default font) and my own handwriting to minimise questions of typography.

An open ended narrative | Anne Siems

Under - Art, Inspiration

Anne Siems is a Seattle based, German-born, artist who creates narratives from everyday life.

At present, I continue with my interest in the human figure and the attributes that surround it. These attributes reflect something about the being without giving a specific narrative. Ideas about life and death, sensuality, sexuality, nature, experiences in the realm of dreams, psyche and spirit are my ongoing topic. A lot of inspiration for these pieces stem from my ongoing love for the art of the European Masters, Early American Folk Art, as well as vintage and modern photography… more

Here is an earlier post on Anne Siems’ work.

Lectori Salutem by Jeroen Verhoeven

Under - Art, Design, Industrial Design, Inspiration

Lectori Salutem (Polished stainless steel) – 2010

Jeroen Verhoeven fuses the fantastical with the functional to create design pieces of fragile beauty, wrought by technological and industrial production. The narratives of enchantment and innocence in Verhoeven’s works (as well as in the pieces made by his design firm Demakersvan) are achieved through an intensive method involving computer-generated models, machine manufacture, and the artist’s own hands.

In the realm of twilight – Evgeny Lushpin

Under - Art, Inspiration

Paintings that you would want to walk into!

This is the awe-inspiring work of Russian artist Evgeny Lushpin – capturing the lure of l’heure bleue in his city and landscape paintings. His work kind of romanticize the notion of human dwellings such as cities, streets and alleys in a very visually rich and ideally realistic manner that tickles fantasy.

Evgeny Lushpin was born in Moscow in 1966. He graduated from Art-graphic department MGPU and Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts. Evgeny Lushpin’s work represents the best of Russian and West European pictorial art. Heavily inspired by the work of Pieter Bruegel, Andrew Wyeth, Hieronymus Bosch and Edward Hopper, he himself is one of the most outstanding modern Russian painters. His work can be found in many private collections across Russia, Europe and USA.
