Re: Contemporary Art Thread

Yes, they're also both concept artists (mostly for video games) and they both use computers to create their "paintings".

Re: Contemporary Art Thread

That last one with the goat got me thinking of Martin Jacobson, they way he uses brush strokes with unmixed paint to achieve effects

Re: Contemporary Art Thread

Saw his stuff at Nordiska Akvarellmuseet this summer, had never heard of him before. I was actually so blown away I immediately bought a book in the shop.

Here are a few more that I really like. The one with the birches really illustrates the best what I meant about using brushstrokes in different colours, especially in the grass.

Re: Contemporary Art Thread

Can anyone recall contemporary artist creating abstract "vintage" animations with very cool vintage synth sounds?

Similar to these but just more pop so to speak.

Hm, not sure, but it made me think of a cool one I saw at KW in Berlin, at the One-on-One exhibition in 2013. It was by Jeremy Shaw, called "Introduction to The Memory Personality" and had strong Beyond the Black Rainbow-vibe to it. But maybe you were thinking of something more abstract?
