  • They sort of remind me of Schiele. Really beautiful.

  • Arseni

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen gestural qualities quite like these in this style of painting.

    • yea i quite like the large blocky shapes, would definitely like to see more work

  • karolina

    I love schiele and I TOTALLY love these. well yeah, there is a certain resemblance, i have to admit it, but I still find them quite original and new.

    • karolina

      and I really like the first one, cause you can’t really see her face.

    • yea i think anytime there is more loose colourful figure drawing there will be comparisons to schiele but definitely have their own quality – i like the tightness of the detail in the face that always seems to continue to one hand

  • i like how he mixes those faces with large zones of pure painting in the body

  • emily

    but more fleeting and insubstantial then Schiele and they have so much more movement

  • Jessie Cacciola

    woah, so cool.

  • karolina
  • so c.

    wish i could see more i like this a lot

  • Stunning work!
    Too bad – no web site!
    Let’s wake up the artist!

  • Despite the obvious Schielle comparisons, this is definitley beautiful art. I hope he puts a website up soon!

  • agreed about the gestural qualities. really great, expressive stuff.

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

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.
