Serbian-born surrealism painter, Milan Hrniazović, uses ideas of realism in figures and combines them with fluid lines and shapes  to creative a cohesive composition that literally circulates the entire cancas. Naturally, the audience is attracted to features from faces and bodies at first glance. But after a few glances on the more realistic part of the piece, our eyes follow a whole new rhythm – one more mimicking the state of nature, maybe a flowy stream, or the branches of trees swaying in the wind. The concept of human nature intertwined with physical natural world around us has always been something that has captivated me because it involves us humans into the world around us and reminds us that yes, we are all of the same world and same manner.

Not only does Hrniazović’s work display this concept, but touches on a more personal level we all experience: relationships. In his series, “Together yet apart” (most of these works are from that series, more of which you can check out in the link below), he displays the underlying chaos of love. “Distortions and scattered parts of their bodies are not only a result of an artistic expression – they aim to reveal drama and despair behind the shinny illusion of love”, he says. As a society, we often highlight the good parts of relationships, making sure to let people know that “hey my love life is going great!”, afraid to admit the ugliness of love. Hrniazović paints the truth of love on one canvas, the good and the bad, the stuff we don’t want to admit.

New tune by king henry!! You know I’ve always loved those songs that start off nice and slow, without many layers, and as the track progresses, gets deeper, bassier, depthier, with more added variety. Personally, I think those tracks involve the audience in with the music the most because we’re able to see the process of growth within the levels, almost like we’re side-by-side with the artist and the  development. Exactly what this tune is for me, it builds up throughout and slows you down for the end. Exactly like a story in a movie or novel, it takes you through different phases, pulling you in from the beginning and letting you off slowly towards the end. It just feels complete.

Not only that, but the overall sound of this track, especially in the end is so captivating. Has that cultural, ethnic feel to it. Really reminds me of home lol… and the more I listen to it the more I love it. The more you listen to it, the more you feel like depth in it.

KEMI MAI’S UNBELIEVABLE START

Kemi Mai is a self-taught 18 year old digital artist that lives in the UK. She specializes in portraits (mostly female), incorporating hyper-realism in the subject, and simplified graphics in the background. Craziest part about this? She’s been doing art for only 2 years. A few years ago, she bought a graphics tablet for something else entirely, and ended up painting out of curiousity and fun. When she was younger, drawing or painting had never been a hobby…  two years later, she has a beautiful porfolio of intricately detailed, brilliantly lighted and creatively colored portraits.

Starting with a simple sketch, Mai then makes the palette version of the sketch, and paints in sections starting with the subject’s eyes using Photoshop. The combination of traditional and digital art is important in that it provides the artist with the ultimate freedom to incorporate all forms of medium and expression in a piece. If one thinks it, it is possible in so many types of ways… and Mai uses both the digital and hands-on world of art to show the audience what ideas she has.

Incorporating women from different cultures and ethnicities, Mai works with a diverse color palette to express the story behind each person. One of my favorite things about her work is the source of light. It gives us the idea that even though some of the backgrounds aren’t realistic, the subjects still have a sense of space compared to the viewer, as if they are up close and personal to us. Especially with the chick with the two braids, the right side of her face is lit up, indicating that a light source is coming from the right, even though the background is a separate layer of blown up flowers. And the hyper-realism on her face pulls the viewer right into the center – you can literally see the slight sweatiness on her face. Even though there aren’t literal drops of sweat, her face still has that shininess to it and her hair looks almost glued onto her face, showing that it’s pretty damp. Those slight clues make me wonder what the story behind her is. This is what makes an artist an artist, if they pull the audience in through intricately thought of aesthetic techniques, they’re doin the thang.

Big ups to this young digital artist. She proves that you don’t need years and years of experience, or even school to learn something. You just need that drive and faith in yourself.

Alright so I was in the middle of posting “chrome”, so excited about the new find, that I didn’t give myself a second to listen to other tracks. But now that I am… I’m falling in love with each one of them. How many sounds can be in a track? Rage Logic managers to keep each tune fresh with their up-beat, deep-bass, sound, but every one is different from the other. I swear, not one second do I get bored with the track because there are so many elements added in every few seconds, and the sounds are so different from eachother. You have a heavy bass, paired with a high note on cowbell, with soft vocals… then jazz???

This is why I never know what to describe this genre – it’s literally everything in one – all sounds in one. It’s random sounds paired together strategically to get you hype… that sounds classy, but nasty. Even the description of the song is “idk”, yeah… I don’t get how this works so successfully. Forreal, but it’s dope dope stuff. And all their stuff is original, not sampled. Check these dudes out.
