Here on Eclectix we don’t usually write long examinations of artists and their work, preferring to let the art speak for itself, the image to be interpreted by the individual viewer… However, with the passing of David Bowie – an art movement has come to a close and the ramifications of his life compelled us to go further into this artist. He was like no other.
The Art of Bjork, Selected Images
With the release of Bjork’s newest album Vulnicura, comes another dramatically flamboyant image of the muse herself, adding to the plethora of art surrounding her. Everyone’s favorite little eclectic elf, with her imaginative sounds and inventive visual explosions has quite a portfolio of eclectic personas. We thought a compilation of our favorite images would be a feast of eye candy for us, as well as a rewarding homage to the punky diva herself.
R.I.P. – The Death of H R Giger
H. R. Giger ( Hans Rudolf “Ruedi” Giger ) the infamous godfather of so much of today’s contemporary art and graphic styles, died Monday from injuries sustained in a fall. Sad news for so many artists and others who had their imaginations blown open by his truly original works. He single-handedly brought dark surrealist imagery into the foreground through his creatures and designs.
The posters of Laurent Durieux are perfected treatments of vintage style with a modern clean feel. The typography, illustration, layout and execution of each subject is impeccable, taking one back in time to the golden era of super-saturated screen prints with luscious depth.
We spotted Jason Edmiston’s Game of Thrones masterpiece portrait and were instantly enthralled. A beautiful painting of the mystical Khaleesi character, Daenerys Targaryen, complete with her dragon babies.
Kevyn Aucoin was Hollywood’s maestro of the painted face. He created a series of fantastic make-over-makeup jobs, transforming today’s celebrities into former screen idols. See the pictures above? On the left is Gwyneth Paltrow and on the right is the real deal – Faye Dunaway in Bonnie & Clyde. Pretty good, right?
