Hugo Barros

Hugo Barros via grainedit.com

Enter the world of Hugo Barros, an artist from Lisbon, Portugal working with collage. Manipulating elements by hand, he creates dense compositions without the use of post processing tools like Photoshop. Although the subject matter varies from piece to piece, there are reoccurring themes in his work. Serene landscapes are often juxtaposed against cosmic imagery in a surreal explosion of color that feels apocalyptic in nature. The end result is mesmerizing and always worth a second look.

Hugo’s creations are available at Saatchi and similar work can be found in their collage section.

Japan – Nippon

Japan Nippon via grainedit.com

Japanese graphic design is characterized by a unique aesthetic, oscillating between its own pictorial tradition and Western visual culture. In Lars Muller’s lastest release, Japan-Nippon they explore the Japanese poster and how it functions most notably as a highly aesthetic image advertisement, presupposing the designer as an artist.
