Weekly Top 10 Picks by an
Greed Mood by skygolpe & neurocolor
Most of skygolpe‘s previous faceless men were melancholy & calm, covered by paints of a more traditional style. While neurocolor‘s art is often neurotically colored (acid, vaporwave, psychedelic are the hashtags), dominated by fierceness, violence, skulls and skeletons. Considering the previous styles of the two artists, this is a collaboration I’d never expected to happen. But I’m even more surprised by how successful it turned out: retreating to the background and giving the central stage to skygolpe’s faceless man, yet neurocolor is the one in control. He gives a total alien force and identity to the faceless man, becomes the “evil voice” on the back of his mind, and completely drives out the violence & craziness of skygolpe’s classic character.
Just have to pick Luna’s flower again. I also learned it’s actually 100% analog. See tweet by Alessio De Vecchi. Then you have 100% spirit of craftsmanship in this digital NFT.
James Owen’s three part series inspired by Betta Fish is the visual manifestation of what “gentle, elegant, and free-flowing” means. It arrives at a spiritual form of expression through the pure language of form and color. In between the three frames, there’s a coming-to-life sense of transition, change and motion.
The most calming video of the week. Reisinger Andres is a master of designing & creating a space so comfortable that you don’t want to leave. You are relaxed and feel at home in your own mind just within a few seconds.
Have been JENISU’s fan ever since I came to SuperRare. Her Girls & Love Series captures the sentiments, dreams/desires and romance of all the young girls (as I believe). At least there’s a part of us, no matter how grown up we are, still dreams an extremely colorful world, filled with beautiful little stuff, a warm sense of security coming from overabundance, nostalgia in the retro products, or simply the accompany of cats. With typical JENISU’s bright colors palette (esp. the JENISU PINK), Girls & Love #5 is a simpler piece compared to the others in the series, but loses none of its power.
Shapiro’s obsession with dancing flamingos (a recurring theme in almost all his art) really moves me. This time he’s determined to make the static bronze statues of flamingos dance. And the result is amazing. There’s an easter egg in Zoetrope 120. If you play the middle 12 seconds (from 6s-18s) the video will loop perfectly (see tweet).
Have been following kyttenjanae long before she joined SuperRare. The highly bright, contrasting colors lends it a fairy-tale, magical atmosphere. She’s best at creating the 21st century, futuristic fairies in a magical world.
Jonathan Wolfe’s humor wins. This time he sets out to a pet park (weird animals again!) I’m amazed at how normal he makes the painting look. It’s like the most serene and normal afternoon, you encounter a normal park, where normal people walking their normal dogs and cats. But wait – why are these dogs and cats skateboarding?! Remember to check out All Paws on Deck, I believe he’s one of them.
I really wish my neurons look like this when I’m sleeping, then I must have a very sweet dream. They look like deep sea creatures and plants, shining and free flowing. The audio is perfect too. I can look at & listen to this piece for many many times on loop.
blacksneakers never disappoints. This time she goes more abstract and emotional than her previous work. You can see enlarged hands, enlarged bleeding hearts, struggling human figures trying to break free from the “collective angst.” Very strong emotions are conveyed through rich colors deployed in luminous, flat planes. The colors are released from the task of naturalistic description, and are therefore capable of developing an enormous power of expression. These are the colors of her inner world.
