I recently had the chance to go to a Pecha Kucha event in Tel Aviv.
If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a unique presentation format that brings creative people together to share their work. I was lucky to get tickets as the 4 thousand tickets sold out within about 20 minutes!
It was a lovely event. One presentation in particular caught my eyes – an artist called Liron Kroll shared some of her work and I’d like to share some of it with you as well. She demonstrated a new technology she is working with, that transforms a normal-looking postcard into an animation when pointed at a camera. This video (although very rough…) explains it:
Another project I found interesting, was her way of depicting the reality that lays behind the “picture perfect” moments represented in family photos.
The animation is beautifully done. The first video shows a short clip, and the second shows how it was made:
You can see more of her work here.
Barking and Mad Full Moon, Drawing by Crispin Korschen
I thought I’d share with you 2 “Kiwi” artists that always make me smile.
Crispin Korschen, from Wellington, creates the most beautiful and dreamy paintings. Looking at her drawings I seem to dive deep into a world of fantasy, a world in which adventures are always around the corner, where friendships are meaningful and trusting, and where every moment is important.
Crispin’s joyful illustrations touched me when I saw them first on a greeting card (if you’re interested here’s the online shop ). I was lucky enough to see some drawings at a gallery here in Dunedin at a later stage. Here’s another one of my favorites:
Always take the weather with you, Drawing by Crispin Korschen
You can see some of her inspiration on her blog.
At the same gallery show, I got to see a first glance of another highly talented artist named Tony Cribb. I found his Tin-Man character fantastically amusing. His unique perspective over day-to-day life is shown through the humerus adventures of his Tin-Man.
You can buy some of his work here (have a look at the “dry humor towel”…)
Until you do so, here are a couple of my favorites :)
