Optical Float Paintings Suspended in Layers of Glass by Wilfried Grootens

Artist Wilfried Grootens paints extraordinary figures comprised of dots and tendrils sandwiched between dozens of laminate glass layers. These strangely precise optical float paintings take on the form of some fantastic microscopic creatures and are sometimes reminiscent of the photos depicting the milliseconds before a nuclear explosion. The design of each cube is so precise, the thin layers of paint appear to completely vanish when viewed from a side angle.

At the age of 15 Grootens first apprenticed as a glass painter at the Derix Company in Germany where he learned to restore antique stained glass windows. Four years later he left on a near decade-long adventure to travel the world, play music, and experience the cultures of Asia and South America before eventually returning to his work with glass. In 1988, he received a Master Craftsman’s Diploma in Munich and by the following year had opened his own studio in Kleve.   Thanks Colossal

Grootens will have work at the upcoming SOFA Expo Chicago through Habatat Galleries starting November 5th.

Urban Diversion by OakOak

French charismatic artist, OakOak likes to play with urban elements. He perceives details most people would ignore and modify it with his intervention. He collaborates with international figures like Fra Biancoshock (Italy), The Wa (Germany) or Bubble (France). Oakoak has brought to light some of the most thrilling street artworks even though usually tiny and hidden. He is based in Saint-Etienne where he started working on the streets. He is a true independent spirit who managed to be famous using the smartest simplicity.

MV 800 RvR Twin Concept Motorcycle by Lee Thompson

Submitted by Lee Thompson, this concept motorcycle design was inspired by MZ concept, keeping MZ DNA, it also features Streetfighter characteristics. You can read his explanation below.

I recently saw an MZ concept article here and was impressed, however looking at a design in today’s and 5 years time or so design I feel an MZ RvR 800 V-twin (not a Ducati) would be the way to go. Make it different but with a slightly Street fighter/ custom street appeal, but keep a little of the MZ DNA. The frame DNA and a close color flash back to the old blue and the bike would then start to establish an MZ identity, maybe the offering of something unique for example a retracting pillion seat.

The street type custom image leans towards a cut down solo seat look, but what happens when the question of two up riding is asked for? I believe an aggressive stance should be considered so establish an identity, also maybe an introduction (in this case Green) an idea not just to offset plainness but establish an identity whilst offering the possibility of other or alternative customer options to. The exhausts are uncomplicated but again an alternative and identifying attribute to the RvR along with the single sided tube type swinging arm.

Designer : Lee Thompson

The mirrors are mounted on the front type wing to offer maximum rear view and less predominance of the overall look. The engine consideration best for the market would be a 600/800cc with enforces on a crisp and responsive performance that 70-75 and 95-100 bhp should cover admirably. Could MZ do this alone? Questionable, but with resent car manufacturers increasingly showing interest in the motorcycle market who says it would be impossible.

Chinese Artist: Ren Hang - 任航 

Born in Changchun, Jilin Province, China, in 1987; based in Beijing. 

Ren Hang’s images are uncensored, erotic, twisted, raw, and are censored in China. They cast light on an otherwise shadowy Chinese underground youth culture, where lust and indulgence run as rampant as anywhere else in the world.

Although Hang is new gen, his determination mimics that of his fellow Beijing creatives. Ai Weiwei co-curated a show with Hang in 2013. He uses his art for activism, employing mixed media to advocate for human rights and oppression and was thrown in jail in 2011 for 81 days – he’s now banned from leaving China at all. 

“I care that the government wants to limit me. Of course, I don’t want to go to jail, but I don’t think there’s a way to fix that” says Hang.
