ArtMash posts are quick blasts of imagery, probably from other people’s Deviant Art or Flickr accounts. I like them. So I show them to you.
I love looking at pictures in this kind of dynamically flat geometrically caricatured style. It’s something I’ve never been able to do well myself, a way of seeing shapes that is a lot more difficult than it seems. Eighty percent of drawing skill is learning how to translate the three dimensional world you see around you into a two dimensional abstraction. Even representational drawing is an almost unbelievable abstraction, when you think about it. As Magritte reminds us, this is not a pipe. But the extra step of extracting raw geometry from living shapes and deploying it with personality and dynamism is a form of genius not well enough respected.
