Maleonn: In a complicated and chaotic world

Under - Art, Inspiration, Photography

Ma Liang aka Maleonn, born in Shanghai, China in 1972. This talented Shanghai based photographer has gained a kind of cult following because of his fable-like photographs. His images, in color and black and white, are often created with props, actors and a strange mix of hues, colors and theatrical sets.

The physical outward world is more and more complicated and chaotic. In such a ridiculous age shaped by plastic values, lots of things that are profound and noble are becoming doubtful. I’m trying to use my own way to reorganize this age in my eyes. I’m dancing with the music of the times exaggeratedly and ludicrously, even a little artificial. But, that is our irresistible fate. All that is just the plastic feeling surface. During the process of building up the work, what supports me is still the self-thinking and inspections towards the human being as an individual.

My work is my inner world. The moments in my works really have been existed in my fantasy. Sometimes I painted them one day before shooting. I painted so quickly even surprised myself sometimes. They are so clear in my mind that every detail exists there. I’d love to imagine and thinking all the day. I believe that I have a complete world inside my heart. With my 30 years growing, this world is being constructed more and more complicated. What I’m doing is to turn the images of this world into reality, that’s all.

Ma Liang is a graduate of the Fine Arts College of Shanghai University where he studied graphic design.

How to eat your Apple by Erick Oh

Under - Art, Illustration, Inspiration, Media, Poetry

Erick Oh is a Korean animation artist based in California, USA. He spent most of his life in Korea where he started producing a variety of work, in which the boundaries were blurred between media and contents. Even though it is in animation where Erick feels most comfortable as his main tool to communicate and interact with the viewer, he would not consider himself only as a film maker but as an artist who continues trying to expand the definition of animation and art.

‘How to eat your Apple’ is an extension of Erick’s recent illustration series in the form of an animated poem. It is without a protagonist, a defined narrative, set point of camera view or any other aspect of mainstream film language; ‘How to eat your Apple’ surrealistically portrays human nature and its essence in the circle of life, its change and death as shown by re-compositing various symbols and objects. This piece flows more like a moving illustration than an animated film, and connects to Erick’s other static illustration pieces and written stories which finally culminates to one big quintessential question on life.
