Nightwalkers and Alchemists

Lisa Billvik
and Nicomi Nix Turner have both a great use of graffite and soft shadows, that they use to portray a strange, nocturnal and magical world. Lisa Billvik's characters are like sleepwalkers in a world between dream and reality, on the other side, Nicomi Nix Turner is deeply influenced by alchemy and nocturnal life and his compositions are very well crafted.

Lights and Shadows

Shadow theater is the fullest expression of black and white, and I really don't know why I have not post anything related to it before. But this video deserves the post, it is specially beautiful, the characters are simple and naïf and the music is amazing. This dreamlike short was made by Johannes Nyholm for the song Twice of Little Dragon and it will be made into a short film called "Dreams from the woods", can't wait...Watch it here

This entry is dedicated to my decadence-lover, talented boyfriend and is about a unique artist that opposed himself to the moral restraints of his time. His name is Franz Von Byros, he was born in Zagreb in 1866, now Croatia but then it was Austria. He made illustrations for Dante's Divine Comedy and other books, but he was best known for his erotic drawings published in his controversial "Tales at the Dressing Table" portfolio."In 1911 he was persecuted by the Munich police because of his illustrations and was forced into exile from Germany". I hope you will enjoy his intricate, elegant, beautiful and erotic work, as I do. If you want to see more go here.and here.
