Benoit Jammes (France) - [o-o]

Benoit Jammes is a French graphic designer and photographer living and working in Paris. With his [o-o], a series of cassette relooking, he gives life back to vintage tapes by making references to pop culture: “It so happened that I found a bunch of old cassettes at home. Seeing them brought me back to the 80s, when I was a kid. In any case, I could not play them any more. Resurrecting them sounded a good idea for me. It was sound, it became visual… and I am pretty sure they are happier now than in a shoebox :-) I think people from my generation would relate to this series of work and would be happy to see these old cassette tapes managed to start a new life!”

Tumblr Artist

Angelika J. Trojnarski | on Tumblr (b.1979, Poland/Germany) - Paintings Collages Objects. Archival and reprographic paper, spray paint, paper tape

Charles. 22x26 cm (2012)
Kolossos. 40x36 cm (2012)

Angelika J. Trojnarski was born in Poland and lives in Düsseldorf, Germany. Her art heralds the forces of decay, the picturesque of ruins, and evokes the eroded dignity of all things temporal so unerringly that one scarcely believes young buds still will grow. “I don’t paint people, I paint their remains”, Angelika Trojnarski sums up her basic Vanitas motif. Please visit artist’s website or follow her Tumblr for more work.

The talented Korean artist Sung Jin Kim has an exquisite obsession: his photorealistic painting focuses primarily on the female lips. The incredible precision in his painting seems to capture the pure sensuality, leaving often the viewers speechless.
