  • very very cool. a lot of confidence in the lines; some of the colouring is almost brave in the way that it could potentially have destroyed these. very cool!`

  • damn
    this is sick.
    makes me want to go back to drawing more.

  • Jake Alexander

    Congrats Fumi!! The drawings are awesome, I like the first one the most I think, the waves are amazing!

  • Really nice style

  • sr

    awesome stuff!

  • Randolf Mantooth

    I LOVE the skulls. This work is so beautiful. The use of negative space is what gets me the most, I keep looking at it again and again.

  • Cohen

    i’ve never commented here or anything (i’ve only browsed), so i’m not sure how this to ask and sound polite, but i just wanted to let you know that i’m seriously considering getting a tattoo of the first image with the waves, and i was wondering if there was a larger image (the sides seem to be cut off of this one) that i might be able to get a jpeg of?

    my email is seniorawesomeman@yahoo.com

  • you should email Fumi directly, i dont want to post her email here publicly but you can find it easily on her website.

    cheers

    oh, i was more planning on having her contact me than publicly put her email up, because i’m far too stupid to find her website… can you link me perhaps?

  • Cohen

    Nevermind, I got it. Thanks for telling me how to get a hold of her.

  • I too was thinking this would make a nice tattoo haha
    =]

  • zo

    Beautiful,
    but uncomfortably similar to Audrey Kawasaki’s work perhaps.

  • ^weird i dont see the connection other than the Japanese names.

  • zo

    Well the composition of the pieces really,
    and details other than their facial features,
    it’s no criticism i could just see that perhaps she’s inspired by her work..or vice versa?

  • Randolf Mantooth

    I looked up that audrey person’s work hoping to see this “uncomfortable” similarity. I see no similarity at all, the audrey girl other than having a Japanese name has a completely different hyper commercial style a’la someone like Trevor Brown, this work is in a completely different universe. It speaks volumes, I can’t wait to see Fumi’s work up close with my own eyes.

  • zo

    Everyone views art differently I suppose;
    sorry if i offended you, uncomfortably was poor wording on my part,
    just making an observation and as I stated before, the work is beautiful.

  • yea i wasn’t offended it just seemed like a stretch, there are many illustrators whose work is similar to kawasaki’s, Stella Im Hultberg for instance

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
