Karborn is a London based artist who defines himself as a prototype young artist of the future-technoid, paradisiacal, neuromantic, an integration of intelligence and an instinctive engagement with visual arts, music, film and machines – informed by his vision of the clarity, beauty and geometry of the real world.

The textures and contours of old maps are fascinating, even the tattered and stained parts. Artist Jason Laferrera digitally manipulates cartographic materials to create fauna and fowl in poses reminiscent of field guides from a similarly early era of publication. These idealized depictions created from recycled imagery question our relationship with the boundaries we draw to divide the natural world. The patterns of forests and shores often become an animal’s feathers or fur, while the rings of topography often trace out wings or antlers. Many thanks to actegratuit for this Monday for having introduced us Jason Laferrera!
Mathilde Aubier is an artist, illustrator and graphic designer living and working in Le Mans, France. She likes to recycle old pictures, especially textures and human bodies, to create her own collages. Mathilde’s work is like muted surrealist short stories: “I have an instinctive approach in my artwork and don’t have any messages to deliver. I like the idea of creating poetic space, where you can escape from the reality for a while.” Mathilde Aubier is also the co-founder of the art and design studio ( Ma + chr ). Please visit artist’s website or follow her Tumblr for more discoveries. (Interview with artist by Artchipel Avr-2013)

Códice Tuna, “The Indian-fig Codex” in Spanish, is the name of the international art collective founded by Sinuhé David and Borayin Larios in 2008. It reads itself like a pre-hispanic codex where the word and image coexist to tell a story. Influenced by popular art and kitsch, as well as mysticism and surrealism, Códice Tuna decided to give form to their vision of the world through art. To share their critical vision and to provoke reflexion, Códice Tuna uses different techiniques and media such as street art through stencils, stickers, t-shirts and other accessories. Please visit Códice Tuna’s website, Flickr or follow their Tumblr for more work and inspiration.

The story about the artist Paula Braconnot begins with an alchemical formula: VITRIOL. More than a mere acid, VITRIOL represents an inner evolution, a permanent transformation, a wandering metamorphosis. The images created by Paula Braconnot are born from this internal exploration, at the crossroads between the material and invisible realms. The artist composes virtual collages using remnants of bygone times: alchemical engravings, anatomical diagrams, and nineteenth century depictions of flora and fauna. This confrontation gives birth to characters adulterated by mechanisms, hybrid beings and organs cultivated amongst foliage. Eyes blossom over hands; hearts and flowers open as doors of perception. Braconnot’s visions are glimpses of a perilous path. As in Alice in Wonderland, where a little girl is confronted by her fears and hopes, the artist portrays visions that would normally be confined to dreams. The collages act as conduits, allowing precise themes such as Time, the cold beauty of Death and irrepressible Life to come to the fore - Themes that have been enthusiastically received during exhibitions in Europe (London & Paris) and Brazil (Sao Paulo) (text by Brice Kowalsky) Please follow artist’s Tumblr or visit her online shop for more works.

Born in Tours, France, Françoise Larouge has studied in the history of art at L’Ecole du Louvre and in the history of film at La Cinémathèque Française in Paris. Her first artwork was focused on painting, but quickly she began to work on short film wrinting histories, casting actors, being script for a short story. While she was developping her art skills, she worked for the CGT (one of the most important french worker union) and other places. She had a fresh start with photography and collages after a few years of wandering and has graduated in 2006 in plastic expression at Ecole Duperré. For Françoise, collages and photographies are two best way to express herself. By the photograph, she works on the memory and the fidelity. With the collage, all the mixes become possible: mental portraits, humour or lightness. Please visit artist’s website for more photography work or follow her Tumblr for more collages.
