Danny O’Connor

Facebook| on deviantART

also known as DOC ART is an artist from Liverpool UK and he studied Graphic Arts at Liverpool John Moores Art School. His work is a celebration of contrasts focusing mainly on portraits and figures with a prevalence of opposing artistic influences. His inspiration walks a tightrope between high and lowbrow sources as diverse as Comics, Illustration, Character Design, Tattoo art and Graffiti to Abstract Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Art Noveau, Modernism and Constructivism all pulled together to create hyper stylised and abstracted works. Contrasts play a big role in what he does, it’s probably the most resounding feature throughout all of his work in one way or another. He likes to mix natural flowing lines with harsh diagonals.

Huma-Animal Hybrids by Francesco Sambo

on Behance

Francesco Sambo is a gifted artist from Venice, Italy. He mainly focuses on digital art, photography and digital manipulation, but besides them, he also works on video installations and music composition to fit his art.

The artist is keen on self-portrait, but in Sambo’s case, there is nothing ordinary about his approach. He strays away from the classic stereotypes of self-portraits, therefore, bringing a new and fresh perspective for those that prefer other forms of tackling the subject. His work revolves around the surreal, with a touch of darkness, grotesque, in many cases exhibiting disturbing, terrifying images.

Motoi Yamamotos Incredible Saltscapes

Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto sees more uses in salt than the ordinary person. His artwork stems from the death of his sister, who passed away at a young age from brain cancer. In Japanese culture there is an idea of throwing salt over yourself after you attend a funeral acts as a sort of cleansing. So Yamamoto started using salt as his medium, creating intricate labyrinths and mazes as he calls them. Not only does Motoi create intricate patterns but full scale installations as well.

There’s also a beautiful book by Motoi that showcases some of his art called Return to the Sea: Saltscapes by Motoi Yamamoto.

Fabian Oefner:Liquid Jewel

on Behance

Fabian Oefner is a curious artist from Switzerland, who’s work moves between art and science. His latest collection of photography, called Liquid Jewel is an interesting experiment. He uses balloons covered in acrylic paint and air pressure to create unique shapes and colour combinations. The beautiful images you see are the result of a fast process that consumes within seconds. The images manage to capture that specific moment when the colours blend, a few milliseconds after popping the balloons with a needle.

“What I particularly love about the images is that if you look closely, you can see, how the individual shades start to mix with each other, blue and magenta becomes violet, red and yellow becomes orange.” As the air inside the balloon expands explosively, the paint is thrown in all directions. Like flowers frozen in time, the shapes and the details are uniquely beautiful and unrepeatable. The Liquid Jewel series continues his work of manipulating paint with different natural forces.
