Editorial Series – The Art of Antoni Tudisco, Hamburg, Germany

About the artist:

”My name is Antoni Tudisco, born and raised in Germany by my Filipina mother and my Italian father. I’m a fan of extraordinary things ever since I was a child. I had my own world as a kid. I started to sketch during lessons when I was attending elementary school, [and] I didn’t really listen to the teacher i just drew and skribbled. I guess that characteristic of mine developed into being creative and original today.

The first time I heared about the Adobe Softwares, I left no stone unturned and learned every command all by myself. Since then, Adobe and me were like best friends. We were inseparable. Then I tried taking another step [up] and tried doing 3D designs and videos. It was hard at first because i had to understand and do everything all alone, but because of hard work and enthusiasm, it turned out to be a success… I developed my own website where I present my work. After that, i got the attention of other artists, agents and agencies. After recieving my diploma at the age of 18, I got loads of projects and requests from some major clients such as Adobe, MTV, BMW, MINI, Wella, KLM and many more.”

Economics Meets Comics for Alessandro Rabatti’s Facebank Series

Economics Meets Comics for Alessandro Rabatti’s Facebank Series - icons of economics meet figures from comics for italian artist Alessandro Rabatti‘s ‘facebank’ series. By reworking selected parts of the U.S dollar bill, british pound sterling and yuan/renminbi banknotes, Rabatti has formed a series of altered figures which aim to reflect the value money and incite a discussion about the current economic crisis.

The faces on the notes, including well known figures like AbrahamLlincoln and Queen Elizabeth II, are taken apart and reassembled wearing superhero masks, since, rabatti notes, ‘Ironically they are perceived to be the only possible saviors who could save us out of the crisis.’ Flash, Catwoman and Captain America are a few of the comic book figures reworked onto the images of presidents and royals, with colorful gold imagery and motifs creating a bold composition for each. The series aims to give a face to the idea of power, one that is more and more characterized by a disarming loss of faith from the general public.

ABOUT

”A series of experiments where I tried to combine the analog feel of paint with the next level feel of 3D dynamics. Felt that I had to try some different stuff from time to time and kick myself out of the comfort zone. All textures are expressively painted by myself and used as a base to make it alive in 3D. I really enjoyed to see the spontaneous outcome of this experiment and I’m def trying to evolve this style in the future.”Rik Oostenbroek

Inspirational Art: New Fashion Illustrations by Alexandre Korobov

Inspirational Art: New Fashion Illustrations by Alexandre Korobov

Alexandre Korobov, young illustrator, creates illustrations full of colours, saturated, photo-realistic, at times acid and ironical, the obsessions of the time finding their way into his commissioned work. He also seeks to revisit illustration techniques of the past by using a mix of electronic processing, pencils and overlay inks.

Originally trained as a graphic designer, Alexander started as a full-time illustrator in early 2012, when he was discovered by Jeff Jank, the musician, graphic designer, and artistic director of the Stones Throw record label, known for his work for the “Quasimoto” character.

After this he went on to designing record sleeves for various labels such as Stones Throw
records (Aloe Blacc, Mayer Hawthorne, Madlib, MF-Doom, minimal wave tapes ), A-traction for which he also was artistic director for visuals (Agoria, David Carretta, MarsT, John Lord Fonda, Traumer) and Boxon Records in Bordeaux.
In parallel he became deeply involved in fashion illustration and the treatment of body and image, as in his drawing of the new 2013 Armani Neat Collection where he recast the show’s models attitudes into a digital portofolio where the work of young illustrators for Armani is displayed.

Alexandre Korobov graduated from ENSA Dijon and LISAA in Paris. He frequently travels to Paris, Saint-Petersburg and Helsinki.
