From great pain often comes great artwork. Such is the case with Manabu Ikeda‘s monumental Rebirth, a 13′ x 10′ masterpiece that the artist toiled over for 3.5 years, working 10 hours a day. It’s Ikeda’s largest work to date and is the Japanese artist’s response to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami that set off the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
If you enjoy seeing a complicated theory or idea boiled down to its essence, you’ll appreciate this new set of posters by London based designer Genis Carreras. In fact, it should come as no surprise that Carreras claims to love “minimalism and Swiss style” especially after seeing this. Here he takes complex philosophical theories, like existentialism and utilitarianism, and whittles them down to basic shapes. Great!
Interestingly, Carreras works for Foundry, the company behind that Steve Jobs portrait made of Macbook parts.
