quinn.jpg

“Flesh, blood, excrement, the human skeleton, animal carcasses and DNA as an
information storage system are among quinn’s favorite subjects; but they give rise
to intensely meaningful expressive forms using the eternal perfection of white marble,
pharmaceutical products, wax suffused with blood, and cryogenically frozen flowers.”

You can see Marc Quinn’s work in person at:
Galerie Hopkins-Custot at Fiac
Paris, France
October 23-26, 2008

Fascinating sculptures.

bastard_graphics.jpg

There is a lot of candy in the portfolio of Paris-based graphic designer Julien Rivoire who labors under the name questionable name Bastard Graphics. It gets a little saccharin at times but there are some notable images wedged in between. Case in point are the images above. Graphic design can be a lot of fun when it doesn’t take itself too seriously and there are some good times lurking at Bastard Graphics. I am always a sucker for bright glowing candy colors on black. That’s probably pretty obvious looking at my own site.

beesub.jpg

Beesub is the experimental graphic design work of Stéphane Faure. The Paris based designer has generated creative for numerous clients. The work on the site is really interesting but you are lucky to get to it without first having a seizure while trying to actually look at it within the site itself. All the flashing overlayed typography is enough to drive you a little insane but there is some good work there if you are patient enough to give it a chance.

emmanuel_polanco.jpg

There is an interesting style conveyed by Paris-based Art Director/Illustrator Emmanuel Polanco. He has worked for several French clients and apparently really likes playing video games. He works by both hand and mouse combining the results of each. He has been working since 2001 and is currently looking for freelance commissions. You can keep up to date with his artistic endeavors at his blog, where there are enough images that you don’t even need to speak French to appreciate it.
