“Well I believe that there are two sides of design. There is design to solve problems, and there is design as Art. People confuse the two. I prefer to use design for both art and solving problems. I believe the purpose of design is to solve a problem, or make you feel good or attracted to whatever someone is trying to sell even though it might be subjective as an art piece,” he shares.










































If Bauhaus and contemporary art could have a baby, it would be called “Baugasm”. Luckily this baby exists and keeps on growing thanks to Vasjen who has been successfully inducing us one eye-gasm per day since 2016. 365 days a year, two years completed already without missing a single day. So we can definitely say that “crazy” would be kind of an understatement at this point, right? Crazy good, that is!

Vibrant colors, carefully chosen textures, 3D art, tasteful gradients, distorted typography and even a bit of animation – Vasjen combines all these and more in a series of eye-candy posters that are worthy of being showcased in every home and gallery in this world.

Russian Artist Recreates Popular Female Characters from Video Games in Sensual 3D

Nico Goldstein from Devil May Cry 5

According to Alexander Sherman: “My name is Alexander and for several years I have been showing people that 3d video game erotic can be both beautiful and sensual.

Here you will not see abnormally huge body parts or some other perversions. As well as characters from Overwatch or Fortnite for example. Many others great artists are drawing them, but I specialize in other things.

Why me? From childhood, I watched in admiration at paintings, posters and stickers with the works of the stunning artists like Luis Royo, Frank Frazetta, Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell. It was they who made me understand that erotic can be beautiful, sensual and enchanting.

I try to continue their work and create the most authentic erotic art with video games (and not only) characters. It takes a lot of time to create unique bodies, distinctive features and decorations that are suitable for the characters, but the final result is worth it.”

Incredible Concept Art Of Our Favorite Pop Culture Characters And More By Michael Kutsche

Michael Kutsche (previously) is an exceptionally well-known and award-winning artist from Berlin, Germany that currently works in both traditional and digital media. Kutsche mainly focuses on character design and concept art.

More info: Michael Kutsche, Instagram, Behance, Facebook h/t: boredpanda

His current portfolio includes character designs from famous movie adaptations such as The Lion King, Alice in Wonderland, Oz the Great and Powerful, The Jungle Book, and even Thor. Of course, that’s not even all of it, as those are just the most recent projects he worked on, but what we can say for sure is that the artist is booked almost full-time for other projects as well.

The artist shared on his official website that he has successfully been working with film industry giants such as Disney Studios, Dreamworks, Marvel Studios, Warner Bros, etc. And, not only that, but his work has also been widely featured in other various forms of media throughout the world.

“I always start to approach an artwork from an emotional angle. But it’s important to inject a whole mixture of different and even conflicting emotions into the process, it should never be one-dimensional. I think an artwork can have a unique quality when it is able to communicate an emotional depth and richness, I think that’s more important than ‘style.’”

Artist Transforms Famous Paintings Into Realistic 3D Furry Artworks

Furry Lisa (Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci)

Classical art has been an inspiration for many artists who try to constantly bring the artworks back to life with an original spin. Turkish art director and illustrator Murat Yıldırım imagined how famous paintings would look if they were made of fur and as a result, six of the world’s greatest art masterpieces got a hairy makeover in the “Furry Artworks” series by this Istanbul-based creative.

“I had not produced reproductions before. I wanted to try something that hadn’t been done before, and that’s why I developed this technique,” Yıldırım told Bored Panda.

More: Instagram, Behance h/t: boredpanda

Furry Night (The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh)

Among the classical paintings that were transformed into recognizable furry abstractions are Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer, Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí, The Scream by Edvard Munch, and Impression, Sunrise by Claude Monet. Although these artworks are digital renderings, they look so real and oddly satisfying that you just want to reach out and stroke the thick fur.

Furry Girl with a Pearl Earring (Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer)

“It has long been common to reproduce the world’s most famous paintings by imitation. In this abstract idea, I used furs as a creative tool to move world-famous paintings forward. With this effect, I combined the colors of all pictures in an innovative and vibrant way. I have been impressed by classical paintings since my childhood. However, since modern art has become digital, I have turned all this into my favorite 3D artwork,” the artist introduced the project on Behance.

The Furry Persistence of Memory (The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí)

The Furry Artworks series has been at the top of Behance’s special selection for 3 months. Behance founder Scott Belsky awarded the Furry Artworks series with the title of “the most innovative reproduction technique of 2020.” Belsky was so impressed with Yıldırım’s creativity that he became a proud owner of one of the artworks, Furry Lisa.

Furry Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise by Claude Monet)

“Have long believed that creativity is the world’s greatest recycling program, and these wild (and furry) abstract imitations we featured on Behance by Turkey-based Murat Yildirim are an awesome example of how everything is a riff on everything, and today’s ‘remix generation’ isn’t as new as we think,” Scott Belsky wrote on his Instagram.

Furry Scream (The Scream by Edvard Munch)

These fluffy works have been auctioned off on SuperRare, a digital art marketplace where people can bid on NFT (Non-Fungible Token) art using cryptocurrency, and each piece has been sold.

This Optical Illusion Is the Most Beautiful Street Artwork in France


Facebook

An impressive trompe-l-oeil fresco painted in the coastal city of Boulogne-Sur-Mer was recently crowned France’s most beautiful street artwork for 2020.

Every year, a popular French portal dedicated to urban art hosts a national competition to crown the nation’s most impressive street art. Thousands of votes are cast, and for last year, the title went to an amazing artwork created by Spanish street artist Gonzalo Borondo, on the city’s rue Jules Baudelocque, last summer. From the right angle, it looks like an elaborate metal gate, with detailed bas-reliefs on either side, but a closer look reveals it to be just an optical illusion.

Gonzalo Borondo is an accomplished street artist, whose works adorn buildings and streets all over the world, but this win is definitely a nice feather for his cap.

Located on this grand staircase on rue Jules-Baudelocque in a traditional district of Boulogne-sur-mer, Borondo’s fresco is meant to be an allegory of life, according to Abid Amziane, the head of the city’s street-art festival.


Facebook

“You first see a closed door, and you may think that in life everything is closed. But by going up on each step, you reach stages, like consciousness, or free will. And at the seventh and last level, you understand that life has just started, and that you should never let go,” Amziane said.

Interestingly Gonzalo Borondo’s street artwork is unfinished. Because of the rain, the Spanish artist could only work his magic for four days, instead of the planned seven, so he is expected back this year to finish the masterpiece. If it already looks good enough to win the prestigious Golden Street Art prize, I wonder how it’ll look when it’s done.

“I associate my artworks with one of the most common problems of our generation which is Mental Health. In my opinion, with all the pressure and the fast pace of our life, our brains find it difficult to deal with everything and from time to time we get some’system errors’ causing anxiety and depression.

In my designs I see Glitch Art as a way of expressing my ‘system errors’ and every unknown feeling I get from time to time. This gives me the freedom to create my distorted reality,” he told in interview.

“Usually I get inspired from color palettes, 80s style, shape of things and clouds. On my artworks I try to share my feelings or my thoughs on topics like existence, time, god, human mind, anxiety and life meaning.”
