Paintings by Robert Bissell Imaginary Realist Robert Bissell creates a completely different atmosphere from our daily experience, inviting us to learn more about ourselves. In his paintings, the world of animals is a mirror for human existence, self-definition and reflection. Bissell’s work causes us to reflect on the environment, life, death, renewal and the stages of transition - departing from the safety of family, and making our way in the world.  He regularly exhibits in museums and galleries across the United States and Europe. Bissell hopes his paintings appeal to the intellectual child in us, reminding us of the mythic and universal human values in the tradition of the great heroic quest stories. His work encourages us to reflect on nature, the roads we travel, and the choices we make along the way. Artist living and working in San Francisco, CA, United States.

“Me & Myself” series by Jin Young Yu  In order to follow a previous article (2 years ago) about the Korean artist Jin Youn Yu , those recent sculptures are still made using translucent plastic. “Me & Myself” series disappear, letting the face, hands, feet, and accessories float visibly. Yu’s work centers on the use of two opposite materials:  the disguise—faces and clothing rendered in vibrantly painted plaster and a yearning for invisibility. Bodies molded of ultra-transparent plastic, a material Yu chose for its weightless, distortion-free quality.  The transparent bodies fulfill the wish of these characters to either vanish or else, to finally find the way to fit into their surroundings.  Her sculptures’ modeled faces, made from Fiberglas-reinforced plastic and paint, essay subtle facial expressions and layered emotions of resilience and hurt.  Check our Twitter and Facebook for more original Art Selected by Very Private Art

crossconnectmag : Chaotic Atmospheres aka Istvan Illustrator, cg artist Biotop from Polygonia- Randomly Generated Insect Species This is my second set for Neonmob (first project : Radiolaria Index ). I had to choose for a subject who could lead to a lot of possible variations. I’ve always loved insects and I use them as subjects for macro photo for years now. So this theme came quite logically. I wanted the set to look like entomology plates used to expose insect’s collections in museums. So I imagined species who live in a polygonic planet. Some are inspired by terrestrial species, some not. Each species has four to eight specimens coming from differents sub-species. I’ve started on Cinema 4D by creating a “species basis” who has all particularities of the species (extra legs, wings,…). I used some deformers (displacer, polygon reduction) in order to give the species his overall shape. Then I created each specimen by shifting some parameters

Metropolis : Futuristic Empathic Wheel Shaped Police Drone

Adolfo Esquivel has made Charles Bombardier’s vision into futuristic digital model. Metropolis is a future vision of patrol drone equipped with a holographic avatar programmed to interact with citizens. Charles explains the avatar would look like BIT from the TRON movie with empathy module in order to recognize and understand human emotions. The possibility is pretty high since Pascale Fung, a Professor at the Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering at The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology, is developing an empathy. Currently, in robotic technology, we have access to software and algorithms that can extract emotional cues from humans, so it’s normal that the next revolution would be incorporating these algorithms into robots. Designers : Charles Bombardier and Adolfo Esquivel Metropolis features a 5-foot tall wheel shaped drone where its main function would be to patrol the streets and assists the public 24/7.
