TGIF (every time I say that I feel I’m about to eat burgers and fries). Yes, the weekend has finally arrived. The post comes a bit late today (sorry!) but it comes with a colourful BANG!
Say hello to Markus Linnenbrink, a Brooklyn-based German artist (seriously, Brooklyn and Germany, what a cool combo) who is all about dripping colours, everywhere.
As soon as I saw Markus’ Photodrips collection my eyes popped out like canned spinach in Popeye’s hands. There’s always something magical about photo manipulation – especially when you saturate the image with tons of amazing colours. In this particular collection, I like the way Markus uses “paint drips” as a veil of sorts to hide the image in the back – he doesn’t hide it completely – you just have to step back to see the whole thing (try it! look closely to the colorful lines, then step back and focus on the background – tada!)
I think I am going to add this technique to my “art to-do list” (right after collages, photography, embroidery and artful chimichangas – oh dear, better get crackin’)
Alright, enough rambling. Go get some color!
Happy weekend :)
