Hey, what the hell is an audio production company doing on a visual art and design blog? Well if you work in the world of broadcast production like we do you can most certainly appreciate what a fine art sound engineering really is and Flowaudio is doing it right in Spain.

Spanish industrial designer and art director Emilio Gomariz has what could be described as a wildly varied portfolio. His animated gif series entitled Extremity is of particular interest. The images are ‘tridimensional collages’ utilizing 3D models (bodies) which Gomariz found floating around the internet.

Spanish photographer Andrés Medina sent in his work and he has some beautiful images in his portfolio. Apparently he was a primarily digital man only a couple of years back but then discovered medium format cameras and made the switch to analog and has kept with it ever since with some gorgeous results.

Spanish designer/illustrator Mar Hernandez is based out of the gorgeous city of Valencia Spain (hey jealousy) and produces some lovely retro-inspired illustrations that are easy on the eyes. I would imagine they’d light up a mid-century styled interior as well. You can see her work both via her home website and her Flickr-folio.

Spanish illustrator Martin Sati has been busy creating some very attractive primarily vector illustrations. His work carries over what could almost be called the Barcelona or Spanish digital illustration style and once again it’s terribly fun to look at and hard to ignore.

Barcelona based creative studio Coco Bongo attack their projects with a rabid and infectious passion. This attitude has allowed them to work with some great clients and sifting through their work is a lot of fun. All you have to do in order to grasp their unique personality is keep your eyes on their logo animation in the upper left corner of their site. Great stuff.

These Soundsick club flyers designed by the Spanish Art Director/Designer who goes by the name Velckro are just pure pop video game-inspired candy. How can you not love them. For lack of a better way to phrase it, they are simply ‘bad ass’. You can see more of Velckro’s art at both his personal site and in his Behance-folio.

jaimehayonlounger.jpg

Jaime Hayon Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliverio Toscani. In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department, where he oversaw projects ranging from shop, restaurant and exhibition conception and design to graphics. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, followed by interior design and installation. His singular vision was first fully exposed in Mediterranean Digital Baroque at London’s David Gill Gallery, an exciting mise en sc’ne, largely executed in ceramic, followed by Mon Cirque, which traveled to Frankfurt, Barcelona, Paris and Kuala Lumpur. These collections put Jaime at the forefront a new wave of creators that blurred the lines between art, decoration and design and a renaissance in finely-crafted, intricate objects within the context of contemporary design culture.”

Apologies for the copy and pasting, but had I tried I don’t think I could have written a better succinct biography for the brilliant new mind in furniture that is Jaime Hayon. His work is downright stunning and his recent series for BD Barcelona including the lounger pictured above is spectacular. I would give my right arm to own his lounger that perfectly blends classicism and modernism. He is definitely a rising star in the furniture game and if you are a fan of the art form, he is definitely someone to pay close attention to.
