SHADOW PORTRAITS BY KUMI YAMASHITA
For the past twelve years, New York-based Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita has been experimenting with and manipulating different types of paper and flat surfaces to cast side profile shadows of various people.
Most recently depicting the silhouette of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Yamashita claims to be able to represent the portrait of just about anyone (sick, right?). Aside from this, her works ranges from rubbing, warp and weft (textile) and even detailed fine art. It’s not every day we find a modern artist who’s work is constantly consistent with every piece just as good as the other. Love!

MIXED MEDIA COLLAGES BY CARL E. SMITH
Carl E. Smith is a Laguna Beac/Prague-based artist and graphic designer who has worked professionally in the action sports industry since 1995. Above is his ongoing “National Parks” series where he ever-so beautifully cuts and posts high fashion editorial and campaign images onto grand natural landscapes like rain forests and mountains and deserts.
Along with creating beautiful inspiration and creative atmosphere through his collages, Smith also continues to create his own original fine art works, realized primarily as collages conveying the beauty, excitement, ruin and rebirth of iconic elements from our everyday lives. Using symbol, color and space, he creates explosive images that live between archetypal fantasy and truth. Too good! Don’t you just want one of these hanging on your wall?
