Morph Griffin

I love what this guy does with morphing. Especially as you watch the transformation from one face to the next you start playing the guessing game in your head.

Light has been used in art for centuries. Stained glass windows. And it is used in many other forms of art, drama, architecture. It is the medium of movies and television. But there is another form called light art. One of the practioners is Brian Matthew Hart. I am not sure how the work is created. Is it tubes of light (like a christmas tree) or is painted on canvas with a black backdrop for effect? To me it is a mystery. But it is interesting. The lines jump out at  you and although it balances between art and kitcsh, I do like it.

Lelo

One of the things I’ve noticed about street artists is that they come from anywhere and they work everywhere. Lelo’s work is flat. With bright colours. His stuff must look fabulous in the warm countries of summer. Another thing I have mentioned before about these artists is how little we know about them. They come into a place, do some work, and vanish. I wouldn’t want them to get paranoid but I can’t help but wonder if they aren’t followed by the secret services agencies of different countries. They are by their nature anti-establishment. And the way they work gives you the impression that the more conventional way of displaying art in galleries are jails. Or more flatteringly, warehouses.
