    The second one looks like the robot from the studio Ghibli film ‘Laputa’. But I am really liking these.

    • steven

      • bill batz

    his big heavy brush marks and muted colours really work for the scene’s, really glad you posted ashleys work:) it had wandered off to a forgotten part of my mind! his sketches and drawings in his metal gear solid book are so inspiring when looking for character studies :)

    Oh wow, I have the Metal Gear comic and didn’t realise that that was him.

    Long time fan of this guy. My favorite works of his are in the Hellspawn comic book series, but I love his robot works, too.

    So reminiscent of WWII but yet so futuristic at the core. Dark, cold and just lovely.

    Ugh! Ashley’s work is disgustingly amazing! I have one of his “Swallow” art books.

  • Mattattaque

    Definitely has that WWII Eastern front feel. The cat (or whatever it is) is priceless! It’s clearly not a bear though, I mean, look at the tail.

    • Nikola

      It’s a lion. It was a poster Ashley did for the Cannes Future Lions competition (for young creatives working in the advertising industry).

    Ashley Wood’s work will always be gangster.

  • Davey

    If you like these check out his graphic novel Robots Vs Zombies.

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.

Shit Robot – “Lose Control” Directed by Kevin McGloughlin

shitrobot-losecontrol

One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
