LE GUN Magazine.

January 14, 2009

scanned-lg2-coverI can’t remember how i came across Le Gun, but im bloody glad i have, a real underground gritty kinda magazine from London. It has a very eccentric feel about it illustration and stories make up most of the contributions in the magazines. Its a contribution magazine, people send in their work of stories or art and the rest i loosely based around a theme. They have become a their way worldwide onto bookshelves in 2007 and are into their 4th issue. They are already taking contributions for 2009 for the summer issue, so if you want to send something in do so now, but i warn you, it doesn’t look easy to get published ­čśÇ

Susan Kare.

Now growing up, all those little pixel graphics seems amazing, they were the height of technology, in the 80’s through to the early 90’s. Susan Kare is possibly responsible for much of what you clicked on, as icons on your computers. She designed for mac (that old version of solitaire and the little load graphics) I came across Kare through an issue of Grafik, 01_maciconsand thought it would be great for you all to see who designed those little icons you hold so dear….information graphics in a sense. Her thesis for the icons were that they were easily identifiable and without clutter like road signs. Her work is similar to a contruction of mosaic grids as the simple pixels create the minimalist identity for big software companies such as MAC computers.

Alex Grey.

Alex Greys work my seem out of the loop of all these Geometric Design wizards, but Alex greys work, is far superior in detail, beauty and colour than the previous artists. His work has been used or the band Tool as shown earlier and focuses of the spirituality of the human anatomy. His work is very much that of existentialism examining the human form with in his work and almost paints a detailed anatomy of the effects spiritual human experiences have on the body. His work is detailed and well crafted its hard not to believe its accuracy, often graphically arranged using line and light to capture the pathways of energy around and through the bodies he depicts. Beautiful.

MELVIN GALAPON!

January 9, 2009

Melvin is an English boy born and bred. He works mostly with sticky tape and labels creating exciting typographic outcomes and making bright and brilliant pieces of work. His instillation pieces often cover a lot of space, lines of colour weaving in and out of each other as they place around architecture and over objects. His work for Nike seems most suitable because his work often represents sports stripes and goes hand in hand with the tasks set out by Nike he decorated a bench using the different coloured tape. He’s largely known for his poster work, using sticky labels to create amazing typographic pieces for the university exhibition for YCN titled “SHOW OFF”.melvin_galapon

Samuel Fran├žois

Samuel Fran├žois started out as a graffiti artist, witnessing the shift in cultural acceptance from its beginning to its place int he art world. His work uses a variety of urban space and transforms with his illustrative style. He also exhibits, his work often as installation, often spontaneous reflecting on the mark of society within an ever changing environment. His work is vibrant and often uses colour to evoke the sensibilities of child like play, that entertains the viewer. My favorite pieces are his urban landscapes but his illustration of the ever changing fashion of our culture, his use of felt-tip pens reflects directly to the art movement made within the fashion of the people, and is an astute┬á reflection of the contemporary art culture.
