Weekly Top 10 Picks by an
Very unique style: abstract, surrealistic, dream-like images using shapes, colors, lights & shadows to express emotions & psychology. Mark’s art always has a giant head at the center, surrounding it are color planes that construct – from nature to universe, from abstract geometry to liquid forms. This piece in particular is inspired by the artist’s emotional process – reassembling from anxiety of creation.
Light Rain by kldpxl
One of the best pixel artists on SuperRare. It’s truly amazing how kldpxl constructs very detailed, complicated, elaborate cityscapes by using pixels. He turns pixel art – a usually very rough kind of art with its intended low-res style – into something exquisite. And there’s always a very strong feeling conveyed through these city scenes. Empty, without a soul, but it brings up some old memories, in this case a memory about a rainy, gentle night.
One of my favorite sci-fi artists. Victor’s use of surreal colors, intensely bright light, pure geometrical forms & bodies and transformation of things is very unique and powerful. His futuristics aesthetics is also highly spiritual, like the description states, the piece is about the movement of energy. The human head splits and dissolves into a cosmic light. What’s left is a small pyramid – the condensed relic of the spirit.
The best psychedelic piece I’ve seen on SuperRare. This is “One is all, All is one.” Everything’s interconnected and changes into everything else. I love that, besides nature, there’s a small human soul walking/running through it, an ego that seems to be in panic, rushing through the universe, trying to find the peace/home.
Love the dark area of harvmcm. The emotions are more subtly expressed, yet stronger. The protagonist is still the astronaut, who just ‘Lost in the depths‘. In this scene, the astronaut seems to be in the right place, the space, the void, where all is empty and silent. But it’s a terrible feeling. A work about experience in 2020: void, halt, stagnation.
As the most technology advanced genre of art, crypto art discusses a lot about the future. Among all the crypto artists, annibale_inward is the architect of the future cities. The artist imagines and designs various kinds of megacities, based on “a future civilization forced to vertical expansion due to total saturation of the building land.” Go visit annibale_inward’s Instagram, you will get a feeling all these visions of future will come true one day.
In a post-human universe, two “two norse wolves that hunt the moon and the sun until the world ends.” The story is about the consumption of energy until every light in the universe is devoured. It sounds scary and dystopian, but this is exactly what human civilization is doing to Earth too.
Besides the story background, the piece is distinctively zomax’s: a kind of retro look control room of a spaceship: dark, deserted, only “animals” left around.
Milton Sanz is getting better and better at weaving an intense emotional state into the world he creates, the world surrounding the protagonist. This series of 3 (the second piece There were 7) readdresses the dark endless night, insomnia, loneliness, struggling with self/ego, co-existing with what brings the self both pleasure and destruction. I guess Milton hopes the insomniac pain ends soon, but it is also where he finds all his superpowers.
Voxel ground, giant human head, turbulent sky, clouds, cosmic lights, car with red exhaust entering the mouth of the head. Overall it’s a very surreal, dreamlike, futuristic piece existing on a blue-black dimension outside of the objective reality. It’s about the ‘inner’ dimensional traversal, a discovery of one’s inner self from the outside.
A piece inspired by a song « Rest My Chemistry » and the artist’s 6th year of sobriety. Under the beautiful surface of colors & abstractions, Malavida’s works are often about mental health, contemplation and color therapy. For Malavida, art is a tool for self-expression & self-observation. In this piece, there’s the “battle between dusk and dawn”, the emotional rollercoaster of sobriety. All the feelings are transformed into colors and forms.
