DOS BCN

DOS BCN X MONTANA COLORS AT OFFF BARCELONA 2015 from Montana Colors on Vimeo.

Like something out of a Manga film, this new technique of graffiti mapping is an exciting trip into whats potentially around the corner.

During the 15th Anniversary de OFFF 2015, Montana Colors together with DOSBCN Studio present the audiovisual piece, “Graffmapping”, where the mapping technique is projected over 14 80x80cm boxes (MTN Puzzl6), forming a pyramid of light and colour.

This sum of tools makes it possible to design a visual language that adapts to any space and surface, making any intervention ephemeral.

It’s a renewed vision of graffiti through the interaction of techniques, brought to us by the young design studio formed by Canary Island graffiti writers and designers, who are based in Barcelona.

Peeta 3D Graffiti

PEETA AT MONTANA GALLERY BARCELONA from Montana Colors on Vimeo.

There’s no doubt that Peeta’s artwork is impressive for it’s technical quality. But the story behind the character and the symbolism of the work aren’t any less interesting. The process of the piece made in the Montana Gallery Barcelona for the exhibition, ‘Parallel Realities‘ (http://goo.gl/VRziAf), was documented for the video that we presented along the same lines, and for which we are thankful in better understanding the work of this Venitian graffiti artist from his perspective.

Alex Couwenberg

ALEX COUWENBERG : SESSIONS : THE MAKING OF LA FONDA from ERIC MINH SWENSON on Vimeo.

Film by Eric Minh Swenson. Music by The Hitchikers, James Lucchesi, and Mick Cripps.

Born and raised in Southern California , painter Alex Couwenberg creates images that are inspired by the elements indigenous to his surroundings. From Los Angeles , Couwenbergs work references and suggests the aesthetic associated with mid-century modernism, car culture, skateboards, and surfboards.

Not to leave out, paying homage to the historical styles of post-war art making associated with Los Angeles and Southern California throughout the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Couwenbergs paintings give a nod towards the Hard-edge abstractionists, the finish fetish, and the light and space artists. Not content to replicate, he uses the sensibility of Eames-era design and hard-edge geometric abstraction as points of departure for creating paintings. His process, an additive and reductive series of moves and passes, creates multilayered environments that are deep and sensual. He harnesses these ideas into harmonious results, reflecting the visual landscape of his environment.

A graduate from Art Center College of Design and The Claremont Graduate School, Couwenberg worked under the guidance of Karl Benjamin, one of the leading figures in the Southern California based school of Hard-edge geometric abstraction. Benjamin was instrumental in the development of his painting style, process, and philosophy.

A Southern California native, Couwenberg naturally embraced this sensibility and applied it to his art making practices. By instilling the discipline and work ethic associated with these philosophies into his process, the paintings began to mature and develop a visual voice. The vocabulary references the dedication toward craft, process, and the progression of concepts and techniques.

Sorayama – Sexy Robots

Guest Artist Series: Stussy x Sorayama from Stussy on Vimeo.

Just un-real.

Hajime Sorayama (1947-) graduated from Chubi Central Art School in Tokyo in 1969 and first spent some time working with an advertising company.

Since 1972 when he became freelance, he has been a legendary artist armed with astounding realistic metallicity techniques. His works of female images, robots and eroticism are well known both inside and outside of Japan. This reputation was initially established in 1978 with the work series entitled “Sexy Robot”, which shocked people throughout the world for his artful depictions of sensual metallic qualities and reflected light.

In 1999, he won both the Good Design Grand Prize from the Ministry of Trade and Industry, and the Media Arts Festival Grand Prize from the Agency from Cultural Affairs for his work with Sony on the concept design for their entertainment robot, AIBO.

In 2001, Sorayama received another prize for this invention from the Asahi newspaper. In this same year the 1st generation AIBO was added to the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institute and the Museum of Modern Art.

As if that weren’t enough, the internationally famous rock band Aerosmith collaborated with Sorayama on the artwork for the cover of their 2001 album, Just Push Play.

He also collaborated with Hollywood movies such as “Brain Dead” (1992), “Timecop” (1994) and “Space Trucker” (1995). His recent exhibition includes: AISHONANZUKA, Hong Kong (2013), Gering and Lopez Gallery, NY (2012), NANZUKA UNDERGROUND, Tokyo (2010), and Bape Gallery, Tokyo (2002).
