UMBERTO DAINA: BYE PAINT, HELLO 3D

They say, they gossip, that Microsoft is going to make to his fantastic, nostalgic and borbonic (’cause he looks like the inbred outcome of two far cousins) Paint programme what common sense did to blu-ray; erase it from History taking with it  afternoons, presentations and 3rd grade essay titles full of fun and cognitive and eye suffering.
We don’t know if it’s true, if, while stroking a white cat, Bill Gates will throw away one of the last reminders of our pre-Adobe childhood. A whole generation started there; maybe Umberto Daina did too. This Italian 3D master, graphic designer and filmmaker, belongs to a world that is sweet and disturbing; it’s like that 2007 trend of pink skulls, but with nothing to do with it, exactly. His hairy figures, flying sprays, his pinks and blues convince us that the future, at least, looks nice.

ANTON HJERTSTEDT: THE ABSTRACT RENDER

When you think about the word “render”, what does come up to your mind? In very talented graphic designer Anton Hjertstedt‘s brain abstract shapes, colours and easy to recognise elements appear; he then mixes them all forming very surprising 3D images we have only seen in dreams before. Hjertstedt is even naughty; phallic shapes pop up in playful shades amongst other fun structures and textures that generate his own world of adventures. What it is clear is that, like it or not, this artist has spent “butt-hours” in front of the computer developing what has turned out to be his own personal style. We love it and it inspires us!
