Chalk Art: Dana Tanamachi

Chalk Art

Dana Tanamachi is a Brooklyn based graphic designer and chalk letterer. She did a lot of packaging design when she worked for Louise Fili, who is pretty much one of my favourite artists of all time. And being a big fan of Louise, I can see her influence in Dana’s work. I’ve always admired chalk artists because it’s such a delicate art form.

The Vein Magma

Dvein, a filmaking and animation collective in Barcelona, Spain, created a visual adventure video for adobe, and the song they used is named The Vein Magma.

When playing the video at first I saw some white mountains with rivers, but when the camera starts moving you can see that it’s not a typical landscape,but a landscape made of melted colors and strange forms.

The wonderful art of Man Ray

Les Larmes Photo by Man Ray

I saw Man Ray for the first time when I was in university. My photography teacher showed the class many pictures and one really caught my attention: Les Larmes by Man Ray. What is really interesting about the picture is the contrast between something natural, like a face, and something artificial (tears and eyelashes). Also, the composition is very unique; I was not expecting to see a face photographed from this angle. It is an amazing picture.

I was so fascinated that I researched him and discovered more of his amazing works, including the Rayographs. As  a contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements, Man Ray innovated with peculiar techniques. It’s worth it to check out his website and his life history. I am sure that you will be amazed by his work, like I am.

Some of them were huge dices, chance cards and community cards, and even the little green and red houses you can build on your land!
