Filmmaker Vincent Bal recently embarked on a new series of illustrations. The Belgian artist decided to start creating a doodle a day on a piece of paper which utilizes shadows from various objects which are placed next to the paper to give him the foundation of the piece. From burglars to polar bears, Bal whimsically recreates humorous scenes with merely a fine-liner and some trickery.
Kaz Oshiro is a Japanese born artist based in Los Angeles. Oshiro emigrated to the United States in 1986, where he studied at California State University in Los Angeles, graduating with a BA and an MFA. Oshiro turns wood, canvas and paint into three dimensional trompe-l’oeil sculptures of everydayobjects, like that old microwave from your dorm room, a stack of guitar amps, a full kitchen, and even a dumpster. Many of these pieces are at his exhibition entitled “Diffuse Reflection” at the Galerie Frank Elbaz in Paris.
Unfortunately, we can’t find information on the artist for this project. However, we think it’s super awesome. This project dedicated to creating skateboards made out of everyday objects from egg cartons to briefcases.
