GARDAR EIDE EINARSSON
Good to see that he is going a bit away from his earlier street art approach and into more painterly abstraction. This piece looks like how the riff in joy Division- Digital sounds
Otto Carlsund, Theo van Doesburg, Jean Helion, Leon Tutundjan, Marcel Wantz -The Basis of concrete Painting-1930
1 Art is universal.
2 The work of art should be fully conceived and spiritually formed before it is produced.
3 The painting should be constructed completley with pure plastic elements, that is to say, with planes and colours. A pictorial element has no other meaning than what it represents; consequently the painting posseses no other meaning than what it is by itself.
4 The construction of a painting and its elements should be simple and direct in its visualization.
5 The technique should be mechanical, that is to say, precise rather than impressionistic,
6 Absolute clarity should be sought.
This awesome creature is a Leptocephalus and it might just be the most perfectly transparent animal we’ve ever seen. According to all-knowing virtual guru that is Wikipedia, “Leptocephalus (meaning “slim head”) is the flat and transparent larva of the eel, marine eels, and other members of the Superorder Elopomorpha.”
We think they might also be secret underwater superheroes.
