Oriol Jolonch is a self-taught artist with a natural gift to create invented realities. With imagination as his main weapon and the help of photography and digital media, Oriol transports the viewer to magical and surreal worlds, metaphors for the reality we live. Each image is , in itself, a story to discover and feel.
2D or not 2D is a series made by photographer Alexander Khokhlov and make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan. The team was increased with Veronica Ershova who had leaded the process of retouching and post-production. The authors were inspired by two-dimensional posters. The key-idea of the project was to turn the models faces into the 2D images. Valeriya used different techniques of face painting so you can see a lot of variations – from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings. This is a combination of interesting make-ups, studio photography experiments and careful retouching.
French street artists Ella and Pitr have created a series of anamorphic murals to bring awareness to the worn out and abandoned buildings in the city of Saint-Étienne. Whimsical and playful, each piece in this public art series features a gigantic illustrated picture frame that appears to be a portal to another world that is more colorful and fantastical than our own.
