Italian architect and illustrator Federico Babina created 27 “paintingsprojects” which represent 27 different artists. ARCHIST is a playful interpretation of the expressive language and aesthetic of some of the most popular artists.
As Babina explains:
Art and architecture are disciplines that speak and lightly touch each other, the definition and function of the architecture are changing constantly with the development of contemporary art. In this exercise of style I took pleasure imagining architecture steeped of art, designed and constructed through the interpretation of an artist’s language..It is easy to find the art hidden behind an architectural shape or see reflected a geometry of a building painted on a canvas. It is impossible to conceive of the history of art in exclusion from that of architecture.
Fine art photographer Kylli Sparre, (aka Sparrek), spent years training to become a professional ballet dancer. When her studies were over, she realized it wasn’t the path for her. Since then she has been searching for an outlet for her creativity and finally found it in photography. Her passion now is creating images using photography and photo manipulation. Her shots depict surreal or dreamlike scenes with elegant female figures in choreographed poses.
Dutch illustrator Tineke Meirink with her series Stop:Watch hopes to make people realize that “everything has its beauty and that it is just more fun to take a closer look.”
Stop:watch is about taking a closer look. To stop and watch. Tineke takes photos of apparently uninteresting items and adds a minimal illustration digitally. That way these photos get a whole different meaning, they come to life.
Ecuador-based illustrator and art director Javier Pérez mixes everyday objects with line drawings and turns them into creative art. Really a fun series of photos.
