Using sub-pixel techniques and additive color theory, Aches creates murals and portraits that reflect today’s digital world with analogue spraypaint and acrylics. The Irish artist, whose work has been seen in Spain, Denmark, England, Switzerland, the U.S., and beyond, applies this experimentation to large figurative works, gallery portraits, and traditional graffiti text.

French director Thomas Blanchard uses the film medium to explore the meaning and psychological effects of colors in a surprising and unconventional way. His moving visual compositions have been created out of paint, oil, honey and cinnamon, which he mixes together and then films.
