The artist’s “Hipstory Artist Series” is a continuation of Amit Shimoni original Hipstory project, which began with images of political figures. Amit has now expanded his portfolio to include new paintings of art stars, such as Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dalí, Frida Kahlo, and Andy Warhol.
Founded by artists Marc Evan and Chris Soria, Maniac is now in its 10th year of creating intricately carved pumpkins for clients ranging from the New York Yankees and CNN to engaged couples.
“And their innovative approach to a centuries-old tradition extends far beyond famous artworks: Maniac’s artists have been known to etch the likenesses of pop cultural icons like David Bowie and Aretha Franklin in fine detail, to sculpt voluminous renderings of the ewoks from Star Wars, and to churn out classic jack-o-lanterns”

From September 28 through October 6 vibrant three-dimensional projections on the facade of Walt Disney Concert Hall are launched by artist Refik Anadol and his team (baked by Google Arts&Culture) to celebrate the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s 100th anniversary.
This public art installation projects transformed archival materials onto the exterior of Walt Disney Concert Hall in animated, data-driven patterns, seeming to give consciousness to the architectural landmark. The result is a radical visualization of the organization’s first century. The images are abstract representations of more than 45 terabytes of information from the L.A. Phil’s archives, including photos, videos, audio recordings, posters, and more.
The files were parsed into millions of data points that were then categorized by hundreds of attributes, by deep neural networks with the capacity to both remember the totality of the LA Phil’s “memories” and create new connections between them. The show is accompanied by the soundtrack that was created from the LA Phil’s archival recordings. Sound designers augmented these selections by using machine-learning algorithms to find similar performances recorded throughout the LA Phil’s history.
The leading radical fashion and youth culture platform Dazed & Confused released a new platform @dazedbeauty to define the beauty of our age. No doubts they started with a phygital representation of new generation of digital nomads, influencers and artists. By this Dazed means a collaboration between a dozen of CG artists and millennial idols.

Mike Winkelmann known as Beeple is doing a strong digital artwork a day. Literally every day for the last 11 years (sic!). We believe he has no time to collect them chronologically but sometimes it happens, like this time with November 2017 pack, available for appreciations on Behance. (We were happy to had Beeple involved in our Digital Decade exhibition last year where he recreated 3D worlds in VR Chat based on designs he selected from own competition ran with Kingdeluxe Label)
Minimalist design, scenographic sculptures and constantly changing typography circulate around the song mayfly.
For Alice Rose & Moniko‘s record label and music video debut designer and scenographer Lenny Grade and Catrin Mackowski used the song’s lyrics of a fragile ending love and it’s spiritual hope of rebirth to translate it into scenes of delicate balance, objects that transform, circulate or flow and a lead singer that is arranged in a state of absence while being present.
Just in time when “Quantified Self” trend is trying to excuse the brutal data harvest from leading smart accessories - here come the solution to take an ease in sharing all of your personal details (including blood cells rate) to the unknown. Welcome award-winning minimalist analogue watches created by the fellows of our creative industry - Anton Repponen and his Brooklyn based studio ANTON&IRENE
After winning the Red Dot Award in 2010 for best concept, and many years of creating digital products for a variety of clients such as The Met, USAToday, Spotify, Balenciaga, Google and Netflix, Anton & Irene decided to make the leap into product design and produce the analog NU:RO watch themselves.
The watch has two dials, one with hours at the top and the other with minutes at the bottom. When they rotate the current time is shown inside the hourglass. The watch has been manufactured in a limited edition of 500, and can be purchased through the studio’s Kickstarter campaign until October 10th, after which, they will be gone forever.
The studio has also collaborated with the artist Shantell Martin for a limited edition release of 10 original hand drawn artworks.
Kim Leutwyler (@carlosbob) is a visual artist based in Sydney, Australia. She works in a variety of media including painting, installation, ceramics, print media and drawing. Kim’s current work takes its form in paintings dealing with images of beauty, gender and Queer-identity. She has come to focus on painting as a medium because of its primarily masculine history in the western art canon. By entering into the modernist painting field Kim hopes to destabilize gender borders just as LGBTQ artists have been doing since the 70’s and earlier. Her artwork has been exhibited in multiple galleries throughout the United States and Australia.
