Kitt Bennett’s “aerial mural work” was recently combined with satellite technology to craft the world’s most massive independently created piece of “gif-iti” (or GIF-style graffiti) on 96,875-square-feet of waterfront space in Australia. The work, crafted by Bennett alongside collective Juddy Roller, features 10 figures that craft a “moving” scene when viewed as such below. Bennett was last featured on our site here.
Kevin J Weir adds to the ghostly nature of vintage photographs with his humorous and unsettling GIFs. Weir’s “The Flux Machine” project uses images from the Library of Congress Flickr account. He posts these photos on both his website and Tumblr account specifically dedicated to this series.
Min Liu, a Taiwan-born, Brooklyn-based animator/graphic designer, has posted dozens of red-hued animated GIFs in her Bloody Diary online. The ongoing project features hilarious animations, often full of cats (and several other beings) in surreal situations. The artist keeps her palette simple in this series, with reds, blacks, and negative space used for each creation.
Javier Arres, an illustrator and graphic designer living in Madrid, Spain, crafts animated GIFs that often depict hyperdetailed, fantastical machines. The artist has his own moniker for these animations: “visual toys.” Whether it’s a wild coffee-maker or a roving entertainment bus, the artist builds GIFs that require dozens of loops to fully comprehend.
Zolloc is the moniker of Austin-bred, New York City-based artist/animator Hayden Zezula. When HiFructose.com last checked in with the Tumblr-lauded phenom, we called his gray-toned, mutant baby-filled GIFs “chill-inducing.” Many of the GIFs in this piece take on a more abstract form, vague structures that bubble and evolve. There’s still an organic aspect to those creations, and somehow, the artist’s work maintains its ability to be both absorbing and inspire uneasiness.
“When I was a kid, I wanted to become an inventor,” says artist Adam Pizurny. “I fulfilled my dream but in a slightly different way.” Now living and working in Prague, Czech republic, Pizury has built an eclectic career out of his experimentation in digital illustration and graphic design. But in 2012, he discovered an exciting new technique when blind artist George Redhawk aka “DarkAngelØne”, featured here, transformed one of his portraits into a GIF.
