Vintage Soviet Propaganda Space Posters

Soviet pilot and cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin was the first human in space (he spent there 1 hour and 48 minutes), and today we want to pay our tribute to this legendary person and celebrate the anniversary in our own unique way – by featuring a set of vintage soviet propaganda space posters. Most of these artworks were created in 1960′s, but our collection contains some reprints of the original posters. Nevertheless, we believe that you’ll enjoy these inspiring and fascinating vintage design goodies.

Frederique Daubal Conceptual Photography: Playing Hide and Seek

The following unsettling art project may seem rather playful and unpretentious at first, yet this is actually a great series on a serious issue. Being made by a well-known French artist and photographer with a graphic design background – Frederique Daubal – and entitled ‘Hide and Seek’, this photographic series quite probably touches the issue of human integration in the community. Being formally pages from fashion magazines, Frederique cut these facial renditions into tiny vertical strips and made them into masks resembling Muslim niqabs. So the featured characters wear a bit unnerving veils and with all that they bring up the philosophical question of visual identity and perception. Overall, this photo series doesn’t feel any forced and uninspired, quite the contrary – with rather haunting and thought-provoking images it simply leaves us pondering what is there behind these masks, what are the stories hidden within those visages. That’s conceptually creative, indeed.

Shadow Photography. In Chase of Inspiration

The professional photographers know the value of light and shadows in photography. Learn how to work with them correctly and you will learn the secret of effective presenting the subject of your photo. When the light captures the object, the shadows help to enhance its appearance, underline its features. Shadows add the desired significance to the photo and highlight its mood. In a word, shadows are known as a powerful photographic element. That is the reason of my interest in shadow photography in which the shadows turn out to be in the focus of the photographer’s attention. Such works give a bit strange feeling that something is missed, for example, the object of the photo, but it is not quite correct. The shadows play the prime role in such shots and, as you see, this role is rather intriguing. Let’s browse this wonderful collection of shadow photography to find out the mystery of these photos together!

Hot Bloody Girls by Brian Viveros

Wow! Perhaps, this is the first thing that you will exclaim when you see the teasing works of this artist. The works by Brian M. Viveros can’t be mixed up with any others, because all of them feature the original bizarre style. These symbolic, erotic and dream-like images of blood, cigarettes and hot girls send you to the psycho-drama reality. Each image combines the eroticism and violence that seem to be fused into one single unity in the imaginary world created by the artist. It seems that his characters illustrate the conflict of terms “sensuality” and “boldness”, ‘cause they embrace these features and present them brightly. Actually, there are a number of aspects that make the works by Brian M. Viveros noticeable among others and to find all of them I offer you to browse these mindbending girls illustrations.
