Creative Polystyrene Sculptures By Shintaro Ohata

Published by:

Shintaro Ohata is a Japanese artist from Hiroshima who depicts a creative approach of polystyrene sculptures infront of paintings like movie scenes with an unique touch in his light works.

He says that it all started from when he wondered “I could bring the atmosphere or dynamism of my paintings with a more different way if I place sculptures in front of paintings”. Many viewers tend to assume that there is a light source set into his work itself because of the strong expression of lights in his sculpture. His further steps have been noticed as he has been featured by lots of media from overseas, including a cultural magazine from the USA that featured him on their front cover and a long interview.

Digital Heroes And Villains Illustration By Josip Kelava

Published by:

The world is constantly changing and as a designer, you need to adapt. This is the success mantra of Josip Kelava who is multi talented guy working as a art director, graphic designer, illustrator and as a photographer too. For more works of Josip visit this behance/josipkelava

What Josip says about “Heroes and Villains Project”? When I was younger I always imagined myself someone that had a superpower. How cool it would be to fly, to move things with your mind, to use magic or even have a robot suit to protect you. That’s why I loved reading comics, watching movies and playing video games. It took me to fantasy worlds where heroes and villains existed. This little project is a showcase of all my favourite characters, both friendly and foe, as typographic posters representing a little of what they are about.
