Artist of the Day…Luis Blackaller
Today’s artist is another fun one – Luis Blackaller – and illustrator and graphic artist who’s work I’m really enjoying because it’s bold, somewhat seedy, and has a really neat comic style to it. It’s also pretty funny – case in point – Dr. Manhattan below…
Blackaller has spent the artistic parts of his life doing everything from art direction and motion graphics in the Mexican film industry to teaching animation at MIT. He’s also held may exhibitions around the world that showcase his interest in culture, technology, and media through his artwork. Blackaller is also an avid photographer, so be sure to check out his flickr account for the products of his experimentation with various films, locales, and techniques.
The art of Luis Blackaller is another example of how awesome it is when artist love color. I think that’s what draws me into his images – they are eye catching, which draws you in…then you get surprised when you see all the details that go in his work…very nice!
