I usually don’t like GIFs. I know that they are trending again, they are fun and so on … I never cared too much about them. Today I am making an exception, presenting you an artist that creates art through GIFs.
If, in most cases these short looping sequences of images are used to create memes, or funny short clips, in the case of George RedHawk / DarkAngelØne we definitely can talk about dark art. He usually manipulates works by several artists I already featured on Reflectedfaith; Januz Miralles / Nuestra, Federico Bebber, and others that are new to me (and now I know I must check out their work soon).
The results are amazing short videos with hypnotizing effects that seem to bring to live the original pictures. Paint running away from portraits, smoky effects altering continuously the stillness of the images, windows of buildings moving incessantly like a sort of perpetually running elevator, and a lot of other effects that are not easy to describe with words.
Geroge RedHawk creations have been chosen to be featured on Blackdove.com, a website and app that represents today’s most compelling global artists in the field of digital motion art.
After checking the examples featured here, I suggest you to visit DarkAngelØne’s Google+ page.
