It’s interesting how a strange abstract outline can immediately process into a meaningful image to us. Pablo Picasso was a master at drawing a bunch of abstract shapes and somehow our brains make it into something. Sometimes realistic representations can be a tad boring or a bit contrived. Anytime an artist takes creative license to create something new I love the hell out of it. Italian artist Ale Giorgini creates really rad minimalist and abstract art based on pop culture figures….actually some of my favorite movies and characters!
The cutesy or “kawaii” style of art has always put a smile on my face. I’m just a sucker for inanimate objects with dot eyes and mischievous smiles.
Malaysian artist Suah Wei Hong aka ‘Kuso Design‘ has been creating some amazing work. Though they may look cute on the outside, these images are simple and profound. They tell the life lessons of love, loss and family. Yes, they have cute eyes but they still manage to evoke some strong emotions out of even the hardest heart. I think the artist was smart using solid background colors to really showcase these characters.
