Stunning Contemporary Art from  Magnus Gjoen

Magnus Gjoen’s prints examines how to change peoples relationship and
preconceived notions of objects. Something which is potentially
extremely destructive can be made into beautiful yet fragile objects of
art. It’s this misconception of beauty which Magnus Gjoen wants us to
see in a different light, being it weapons, animals or the human race
itself. The latter which is capable of creating immense beauty but also
capable of destroying it all. Taking inspiration from street and pop art
and juxtapositioning it with fine art, he creates new and modern takes
on old masterpieces or manipulates something powerful and strong into
something fragile but beautiful. He often questions the correlation
between religion, war, beauty & destruction in his art. Magnus Gjoen
was born in London to Norwegian parents and studied design in London
and Milan and has worked as a denim designer and graphic designer for
Vivienne Westwood amongst others.

Artist hacks a power drill to become a surprising stop-motion animation tool

Artist hacks a power drill to become a surprising stop-motion animation tool:

A Los Angeles-based artist’s test run for a flip book he was making turned out to be a surprising and inventive method for animating still frames. Federico Tobon attached a reel of 24 simple, hand-drawn pages to the chuck of a drill, generating an endlessly spinning sequence of frames. As Tobon engaged the drill’s trigger, the bit rotated the pages 360° and animated the cycle of otherwise static drawings.

A Midnight Walk Through the Neon-Hued Streets of Asian Cities by Marcus Wendt 

While on a recent trip through Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and Seoul, London-based photographer Marcus Wendt found himself suffering from a bout of jetlag induced insomnia and ended up wandering the streets of several cities late at night. With a camera in-hand he captured these mesmerising shots that channel the cyberpunk vibe of movies like Bladerunner where narrow urban alleys are bathed in cool ultraviolet light. Over several days Wendt worked his way through the Kowloon area of Hong Kong and then Shenzhen’s Huaqiangbei area known for its sprawling electronics market, before eventually traveling to Seoul.
