Weekly Top 10 Picks by
Stuck on a feeling. In loving memory of Dinorah Torres Muñoz ❤️
This time outside of the infinity room, we got stuck in the feeling of car accident and fire. It happens over and over and over again.
• Hand-drawn animation • 3000*3000 pixels • 86 unique frames / 132 total frames • A bonus PDF with messy scans of researches and keyframes will be sent.
Perhaps the best 2d animation artist on SuperRare imo. Color, animation/movement, transformation of the shapes and inter-dynamics are so magical, fluid and light-weighted.
A big, squishy duck carried by a robot dog. I like to think they’re friends. The music in this piece is an original creation by Peter Javidpour.
We see the trend of making robot dog less terrifying by using them to do quite silly and useless stuff like clubbing and carrying a duck. Isn’t it cute that robot dog and squishy duck are best friends?
2020 was a year of self dev and personal growth
Personal growth. Centering on the self. Life & beauty are grown from within.
“Rome” — Mohler. Dec. 1, 2020. Video: 45sec. 3840px w. 2160px h. Ai neural style transfer treatment of footage of the Roman Forum taken by Mohler in 2018. First of the “Painted Cities” series which explores the subconscious of Ai and painted video.
AI dreams of the city of Rome.
Sunken wormholes and webbed mutants make up this bubble metropolis that stands as an example of alternate subaquatic landscapes.
Life grown out of the lifeless. A micro-landscape.
i enjoy creating people interacting within a space. i want it to feel almost nostalgic even though it is a fairly abstract interpretation of these characters. i want to make expressionistic work about the human experience that is truer than realistic representation. i want my characters to represent the entirety of humanity while telling an individual story of themselves. thanks for looking!

Maybe I’m old fashioned but I think this is a masterpiece. It’s reminiscent of Van Gogh’s room + Francis Bacon’s portraits. The way the interior space, human figures and objects are portrayed makes you feel an actual lively event happening in a dream state. It’s so real and unreal at the same time.
THIS PIECE SPEAKS DIRECTLY TO ROBNESS’ HEART. IN THE YEAR OF 2011, HE JUST GOT BACK FROM THE TRIP OF HIS LIFE AT BURNING MAN ONLY TO FIND OUT THE DRUMS OF PROTEST AGAINST THE 2008 FINANCIAL CRISIS WAS WELL UNDERWAY. WHILST WORKING AT A RESTAURANT IN HERMOSA BEACH, HE WOULD HOP ON THE BUS TO AND FROM DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES TO PROTEST AGAINST CORPORATIONS LIKE BANK OF AMERICA WHO PLAYED A SEMINAL PART IN THE BAILOUTS. THE OCCUPATIONS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES REACHED A CRITICAL POINT AND MADE IT INTO THE PUBLIC CONSCIOUSNESS, BUT THE MOVEMENT SLOWLY FIZZLED AND ONLY THE MESSAGE GOT ACROSS, NO REAL CHANGE ESTABLISHED. AS WE FAST FORWARD TO WHAT MAY LIVE AS A ‘DAY OF INFAMY,’ A GROUP OF REDDITORS ON A FORUM CALLED /R/WALLSTREETBETS MANAGED TO TAKE DOWN MELVIN CAPITAL, A FIRM THAT WAS CAUGHT SHORT SELLING AND TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE COMPANY GAMESTOP. DURING A PANDEMIC, THIS WAS SEEN AS A SLEAZY MOVE AND THUS THESE GROUP OF ‘RETAIL INVESTORS’ MANAGED TO FIRE AN ARROW OVER THE CASTLE WALLS OF WALL STREET ITSELF AND MANAGED TO TAKE A SCALP FOR THE WORLD TO SEE, SENDING MELVIN CAPITAL WITH LOSSES IN THE BILLIONS. THE FALLOUT OF THIS EVENT TRIGGERED MASS MANIPULATION FROM TRADING PLATFORMS LIKE ROBINHOOD TO STOP TRADING IN AN EFFORT FOR WHAT SEEMED BY MANY TO PROTECT THESE VERY HEDGE FUNDS THAT WERE SUFFERING MASSIVE LOSSES. THE BIG TAKEAWAY FROM THIS EVENT IN U.S. HISTORY, IN MY OPINION, IS NOT ONLY DID IT UNITE BOTH SIDES OF THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM(TED CRUZ AND ALEXANDRIA CORTEZ FINALLY AGREEING ON SOMETHING), BUT IT ALSO BECAME A MOMENT WHERE THE ENTIRE NATION FINALLY REALIZED THE SCOPE OF FRAUD THAT WALL ST. HAS BEEN PRACTICING FOR GOD KNOWS HOW LONG. THIS WAS THE MOMENT EVERYONE REALIZED, WITH THE HELP OF CURRENT FAST AND MOBILE TRADING TECHNOLOGY, THAT THE GAME WAS NEVER IN THEIR FAVOR……IT WAS ALWAYS IN THE HANDS OF THE SMALL FEW. THIS IS PART OF THE ‘LAST CONFIRMATION’ BLOCKCHAIN FINE ART COLLABORATION SERIES WITH NORMAN HARMAN X ROBNESS VIRTUAL(FORMERLY CYBERPOP)
Perhaps the best piece on WSB vs. Wall Street. It captures everything related and shows you how everything leads to another and is all interconnected someway from the past to the future. So many references covering the whole crazy event!
Stand outside of time. Watch a world fall. Reach in and grab the falling. No hand is big enough. …. Created by Sutu with music and sound design composed by Jake Steele (Tobacco Rat). Future Historians is part 1 of a tryptych exploring perceptions of reality at a time when our natural world is experiencing unprecedented decline while our virtual worlds proliferate. There is an ongoing trend in the digital arts industry to create a simulacrum of our physical world by fabricating massive databases of off-the-shelf flora and fauna and physical artefacts and then replicating our laws of nature via complex physics engines. The holy grail being to pass a visual Turing test, where the virtual simulations are unparalleled to our physical world. Future Historians combines Sutu’s own 3d models with 3d stock assets and various animation FX to present a series of glitched-out virtual worlds that fall short of the physical realities their trying to mimic.
My favorite thing about this piece is the feeling of futuristic nostalgia. It’s a time when we live proudly in a simulation constructed by ourselves we nevertheless can never have again the perfection of reality – “glitched-out virtual worlds that fall short of the physical realities they’re trying to mimic.” Reality is something we’ve lost.
A look into my mind, and how I view the world.
The intensity, messiness and struggle of consciousness in this piece gives you an idea about the artist’s mind.
