digital artist

For my pixel image sound assignment,
I have done some research of styles and art direction.
Analysing the aesthetic i like and get inspiration from them.
1. Julien Pacaud
Julien Pacaud is a french artist and illustrator, currently living in Le Mans, France. Before becoming an illustrator, he was, by turns : an astrophysician, an international snooker player, a hypnotist and an esperanto teacher. He hopes he can someday have enough free time to devote himself to his real passion : time travel.Direction: style art and photo montage
Skill: Photoshop//photography
Julien plays a lot on the visual perspective, and gives a strange but familiar feelings to the viewer. 
Catherine Gaffney mentioned, Pacaud is heavily influenced by the enormous back catalogue of images from film and television – which he routinely raids for his own collage-style compositions.
I like the symmetric composition and vintage colour, and also the using different shapes to create the background of the picture. I found most of his art piece has architecture elements, and blue colour is mostly used.References:


2. Tim Biskup
Tim Biskup is an America-based artist who actually a pop-rock performer. Then, he enrolled to Otis College Art and Design’s Fine Art department in 1986 but later drop out in 1988. He did not like the art which been taught in college and started to create his own art by his concept.  He did a lot of live art auctions,limited edition prints, vinyl figures, books, records and other objects. His theories and actions are at times light-hearted and even funny, but can tend toward nihilism, anarchy and revolutionary idealism, matching the visual intensity of his paintings, sculptures and direction: flat patterns and montages
skill: illustrator
i like the geometrical style and vivid colours that the artist used.
The art objects is balance and well compose, simple and attractive.References:
Eduardo Recife is an artist, illustrator, graphic designer, and typographer from Brazil. He is creator of Misprinted Type, a website featuring his personal works, collages, drawings, and typefaces. He prefer hand-made product, rather than completely digital drawings – ” Somehow clean lines from the computer bother me, because it feels so cold and mechanical.” He has been in the business of design since the mid-1990s.
direction: collage , vintage and retro old style
skill: illustration, photoshop
very individualistic illustrative art style and typography is involved.
The artist also like to use shapes and patterns to fill up the blanks.Refences:
