Diario de un viaje - Cartagena by Rafatoon

Rafatoon is a columbian motion designer based in Bogota. His work is really interesting, with a great attention to details, but I've been more especially touched by his last work.
More precisely, it's a king of video travel book of a trip in Cartagena, a surprising mix of slow motion, typography integration and motion design effects. The result has a strong identity, and I wouldn't be surprised if you want to take some days off after watching it !

Hommage au peintre franco-chinois Zao Wou-Ki

I just read into my news feeds that the painter Zao Wou-Ki passed away yesterday. I find his work very interesting, and so I wanted to show some pictures of his work, some of my readers surely don't know this great artist. Zao Wou-Ki was born in China, and has been initially trained to traditionnal chinese painting. After coming to France in 1948, he met important french artists like Henri Michaux, Paul Klee or André Malraux. Their influence helped the artist to create his own style, later called lyric abstraction. His paintings put the viewer in a very singular feeling, a kind of reverie.

Known for his murals and canvas, the artist also created short animation films which are really interesting, both for the direction and the graphic style.

My Strange Grandfather, stop motion short film by Dina Velikovskaya

My Strange Grandfather, court métrage en animation de marionnette et stop motion

Dina Velikovskaya is still studying at the Russian State University of Cinematography, but after watching her last short film, "My Strange Grandfather", we can easily think the director has several years of experience. Based on the stop motion puppets animation technique, the film is really beautiful, with amazing details allowing the artist to create a very unique atmosphere. Elements like the soundtrack, the wind illusion, or the post-production effects give the whole a great quality, with a nice story. A very talented student who surely will be a major animation artist in the next years.
