I’m loving these paint smudged photographs from Paris-based artist Leslie David. The colorful and thickly applied gouache is an interesting contrast against low res editorial scans and grainy vintage prints. Select works from her Souveniers From Paris series, in the form of postcards, are available now at Colette!
In his series titled “Flying Houses,” Laurent Chehere manipulates images by placing ordinary homes and buildings high into the sky. Inspired by the forgotten homes of the Belleville and Menilmontant neighborhoods in Paris, Chehere brilliantly highlights the unsung beauty and details of the architecture.
New York based photographer Andrew Moore is best known for capturing the eerie, yet captivating, feel of decaying and abandoned buildings from Governors Island to Detroit and Indiana to Ohio. My favorite of these post apocalyptic images has to be the house engulfed in leaves and the Dali-esque melted clock.
Belgian designer and artist Liesbet Bussche has transformed street barriers and roadblocks, throughout the streets of Amsterdam, into larger than life necklaces, earrings and charms. What a clever and whimsical way to add a bit flair to the most ordinary objects!
Inspired by a walk through Toronto’s High Park one afternoon, photographer Daryl Banks decided to simulate the beauty of flowers by combining layers of colorful crinoline with can can gams! Honestly, WTF.
Web developer and artist Matt Wisniewski skillfully combines elements of nature with photographic portraits to create the most stunning and visually intriguing digital collages. After admiring his work for several months, I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this talented mixed media master!
