Art is always one of the best sources of inspiration for designers.
Polish designer Janusz Jurek has specialized in digital art and illustration over the years. His more recent work involves a lot of generative illustration. Unfortunately, he didn’t document his working technique, so we can only take a wild guess and imagine that he works with some programming tools. In his body series, he makes lines converge […]
Artist J. Frede had an interesting idea to create new landscapes. Instead of painting the landscapes or creating digital images of it, he did some kind of collages using photos that aren’t related in one way or another. These newly formed, fictional landscapes, create new world from the view of several photographers, thus creating imaginary […]
At Designer Daily, we’ve always been fans of data visualization. We also enjoy good light painting projects when we see it. As you can imagine, this project by Stephen Orlando that mixes both arts is just a delight to us. The Canadian took his passion for capturing motion in space to a new field: music. […]
Chocolate. Lego. Space-invaders. If you are a normal person of the 21st century, at least one of these words should appeal to you. Japanese designer and illustrator Akihiro Mizuuchi has designed and built some moulds that let you create your own chocolate Lego bricks. It probably melts a bit too quick to really play with it, […]
Sydney-based artist Kendal Murray spends her time between lecturing about design at the School of Humanities and Communication Arts of the University of Western Sydney and working on her art. In this post we’ll focus just on her amazing art, tiny mixes of sculptures, miniature gardens and doll houses. Each of her tiny sculpture takes you on […]
Among the new technologies artists use to experiment with, 3D printing is in my opinion the most interesting. If you can take the experiments one step further than just playing with consumer 3D printers, it becomes amazing for the artist. At the time of writing this article, the DX | design exchange in Toronto is holding […]
Filipino artist June Digan has great talent for at least two artistic skills: lettering and watercolor painting. She combines the two by creating spectacular paintings of quotes, with gorgeous lettering of course. She mixes typographic styles with wonderful taste, using subtle color schemes that can only be made with watercolor. Most of her work is […]
Many sand castle builders are pretty amazing artists when it comes to patience and skills. On the other hand, sand castles are too often a bit kitschy for my taste. Artist Calvin Seibert gives an architectural twist to his sand castles. His monumental castles would look great as a big city’s opera house or a villain’s […]
The best part about watercolor paintings is the unpredictable effects you will get from it. The paint solves into subtle shades and creates beautiful edges that are hard to control. Serbian artist Endre Penovac is a true master of watercolor who can create cat paintings with just a few brush strokes. You can see all […]
When spilling coffee, most people clean it up right away with an occasional curse word. Stefan Kuhnigk, an artist from Germany, prefers to let it dry for a few hours, so he can create some little illustrated monsters with the spills. Now he even creates the coffee spills on purpose and selects the best to create […]
When in design school, I remember one teacher explaining us that trying to imitate the style of famous designers or artists as an exercise was one of the best ways to progress. In fact, when doint this, you have to try to put yourself in the person’s shoes and learn how to thing like that […]
When I was a kid, we would travel to Serbia every summer to meet with the family there. One of the highlights for me was to see my great-aunts who would check out the bottom of my mother’s coffee cup and predict the future. I suspect Giulia Bernardelli, who shares amazing art made with spilled […]
Turkish artist Hasan Kale, previously featured on Designer Daily for his tiny paintings of Istanbul, is back with even more amazing and smaller artworks. At a size of a fingernail, or even smaller, the artist re-creates some famous paintings or creates his own. Kale would probably have been an excellent surgeous, when you see the […]
Korean artist Beomsik Won likes to play with architecture. He likes to imagine impossible building structures in what he calls Archisculpture. Thanks to digital manipulations, architectural structures get to enter in a new dimension and mess with our minds.
Susanna Bauer creates unbelievable sculptures using old leaves. With crocheting techniques, she creates compositions in 2D or 3D. The new shapes given to the leaves combined with the fragile and natural textures make it look just perfect. If you’ve ever try to fold an old leaf or just try to do anything with it, you […]
