Stephan Balleux

I was browsing Iseen and came across the bizarre work of Stephan Balleux. I am always especially interested to hear an artist describe their own style, or way of working:

“I apply the characteristics of Painting to the different media, like a virus, in order to enhance one or several components and get a global vision which we could label « expanded painting ». In a reversed perspective, I apply to painting other media’s components, borrowing, for instance, from photography its quality of focus, blur and texture. I also borrow from computer imagery a precise mastering of the whole image (Gaussian blur, movement blur, scale, contrast and colour changes, etc.)”

I am not going to pretend I understand what he is talking about but I like his work. More photos after the jump!


Visit Stephan Balleux’s site to see more of his paintings and pastel renderings, as well as his 3D animations and sculptures.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
