A child born to a father who worked with lines(an architect) and a mother who used colors (an artist), Jasper Goodall an Illustrator, has combined silhouettes, sex and style into his work and in the last decade has given us a new way to look at art.
“In February 2009 Goodall’s first London based solo Gallery show titled ‘Poster Girls’ marked a new direction in his work, mixing photography with illustration in a stunning concoction of shiny latex, dripping pink goo and acrylic cut out body masking that comments on fetishism, dressing up and the fine line between fantasy and reality.”
Since Jasper has made Bambi R-Rated, I’ll like to see if he’s up to the challenge with do the same thing for Olive Oyl!
The French have given me another reason to get excited. French artist Amose, shows us his unique use of shapes and colors in his illustrations. The tiny heads and unusual human forms is what Amose’s signature work looks like on canvases, walls and also his digital work.
On most of his art the subjects have robotic shaped bodies that are big, strong and not to be messed with. Neck up is a different story. Make them look human is what he did, giving his subjects regular size heads with very expressive faces that have than human feel to them, making you appreciate what you’re looking at. Let’s see if Amose will be kind enough to create an animation bringing his characters to live!
Tim Burton has given us Batman, Sweeney Todd, Mars Attackes, Bettlejuice, Edward Scissorhands plus many more films that always peeks your interests. This creative mind has a distinctive style and approach to movie making. Not only has he reinvented Hollywood film making using his personal vision, Tim Burton has also influenced a generation of young artists. Most of his films are dark and humorous, the signature settings for his films ohh and stars Johnny Depp!
It’s obvious these two friends and artists in their own rights, work very well together. Since their first collaboration with Edward Scissorhands, they have worked together on 7 films to date and I’m quite sure several more films and projects will have this duo pleasing us for years to come!
Tim Burton’s field of work has earned him a place not only in the movie hall of fame, but the art world has been following his…. creations. It’s only fit that an exhibition should be given this special, gifted artist.
The MOMA (Museum Of Modern Art) exhibition gives us a complete retrospective of Burton’s theatrical full length features and shorts. We can also see a full range of his creative work, from his early childhood drawings through his mature work in film and his current visual imagination. This being the largest monographic undertaking in the history of the MOMA museum, the Time Burton exhibit has 700 pieces of Burton’s sketches, drawings, paintings, photographs as well as a selection of his amateur films.
Against the grain is how I would describe Tim Burton approach to life and his passion. Sometimes it pays to let your imagination come to life and run wild. Luckily for Burton, we like it when he opens up his mind and invites us in!
