You may not be immediately familiar with the name Alan Aldridge, but you most likely know his work. A legendary graphic designer (who continues to do masterful work to this day), he is known for his iconic cover of Elton John’s Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy album, as well as the provocative poster for Andy Warhol’s Chelsea Girls (which earned him not only admiring praise but a warrant for his arrest under obscenity charges), and his seminal work with the Beatles, to touch on just the tip of the iceberg of Aldridge’s formidable career.

On a relentless quest to merge the low brow with the high, Wayne White (who we covered in Hi-Fructose Vol. 19), brings a cartoony, fun-loving aesthetic into his fine art as much as he embeds a sense of irony and subversive humor into his commissioned works, such as the set designs of Pee-wee’s Playhouse among many other projects. Directed by Neil Berkeley, the new documentary Beauty is Embarrassing chronicles White’s struggle to find a balance between his personal and commercial work. The film has already premiered at film festivals such as SXSW, Independent Film Festival Boston, HotDocs and many others, and has been lauded by critics at the Huffington Post and Wired. Take a look at some of White’s works as well as stills from the new film, which hits theaters in September.

Yamamoto Takato was born in Akita prefecture (Japan) in 1960. After graduating from the painting department of the Tokyo Zokei University, he experimented with the Ukiyo-e Pop style. He further refined and developed that style to create his “Heisei Esthiticism” style. His first exhibition was held in Tokyo, in 1998.

RGB by Carnovsky.

RGB is a work about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”.
RGB designs create surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus.

RGB’s technique consists in the overlapping of three different images, each one in a primary color. The resulting images from this three level’s superimposition are unexpected and disorienting.
The colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear. Through a colored filter (a light or a transparent material) it is possible to see clearly the layers in which the image is composed.
The filter’s colors are red, green and blue, each one of them serves to reveal
one of the three levels.

In each image three layers live together, three worlds that could belong to a specific animal kingdom or to an anatomical part, but at the same time connect to a different psychological or emotional status that passes from the clear to the hidden, from the light to the darkness, from the awakeness to the dream in something that could be a sort of exploration of the surface’s deepness.
