Joris Kuipers‘ intricate, richly detailed creations combine painting, sculpture, and installation art. Trained as a painter, Kuipers applies vibrant hues and complex textures to his surfaces, sometimes applying paint directly from the tube or using spray bottles to achieve what he calls a “contemporary pointillism.”
Artist Mike Kelley’s new book “Kandors” chronicles his decade of work creating and recreating images of Kandor. Kandor, for non-Superman fans (that includes me—Batman forever!), is the former Kryptonian capital, shrunk and placed in a bell jar by a villain. Inspired by this story, Kelley creates installations using colorful hand-blown glass bottles and bell jars.
I saw the Crystal Chain Gang featured on Designsponge last week and was blown away by their gorgeous work. I love unique glass art, and the colors and detail in these pieces are amazing. The projects are also based around really interesting concepts and stories.
