Fine and Street Art Aesthetics Merge in Anthony Lister?s Expressive Murals

   05 Aug 01:00:02  |  ThisIsColossal

Australian artist Anthony Lister paints illustrative murals that blur the line between street art and fine art. The subjects on his walls range from figurative paintings of dancing ballerinas, to large scale portraits with rosy cheeks and red noses. Lister’s unique style is a result of his early influences and experience with graffiti, as well as his formal art education at Queensland College of Art and mentorship with New Zealand artist Max Gimblett.

Thousands of Miniature Mirrors Dazzle and Refract in Multi-Media Sculptures by Lee Bul

   04 Aug 01:00:01  |  ThisIsColossal

Korean artist Lee Bul examines shared human consciousness in a variety of forms, creating tentacled sculptures, futuristic chandeliers, and other large-scale forms that refract the audience through tiny mirrored tiles. The installations and sculptures are at once inspired by the past as they draw from societal folklore and shared histories, and the future, as they consider technological advancements.
“For Lee Bul, humankind?s fascination with technology ultimately refers to our preoccupations with the human body and our desire to transcend flesh in pursuit of immortality,” explains the artist’s biography. More

The Yamazakis have created a wide range of designs that have become increasingly intricate over the years. Simple acorn-like shapes have evolved to elaborate samurai helmets, sailor caps, and duck likenesses, and the different shades of the cats’ orange, tabby, and white fur allow for nuance within each hat.

Moody Views of Hawaii?s Rugged Beaches by Photographer Jason Wright

   02 Aug 01:00:01  |  ThisIsColossal

Dramatic views of Hawaii’s landscape by Jason Wright depart from typical depictions of the high profile islands.

Wright, who grew up in Hawaii, shares with Colossal that his experience as a life-long surfer informs his perspective as a photographer.

James Nolan Gandy (previously) uses his metalworking knowledge to create drawing machines that produce finely tuned, yet expressive works. The machines are purely mechanical, yet their result is something that appears almost digital, as if the drawn orbs and ellipses were designed in a computer program rather than executed by an analog structure. To create multi-color works Gandy must pause the machine to switch out each color, furthering the collaboration between the built artistic object and his own aesthetic desires. More
