I am going to try and start highlighting an artist every Monday from Behance Network, this being said the first is Michel Valentino.
Michel's work caught my eye immediately! Honestly though when someone says that photograph or piece of art evokes emotion, they could be using Michel's work for the basis of that comment. The lighting, composition and subject matter is so spot on and leaves me wanting to see more. It really drags me into his world of apocalyptic demise and just leaves question swirling in my head.
Please enjoy his work and if you want more follow the link after the break, or just visit his site.
Info Taken from his site:
MICHEL VALENTINO was born in march 1972, he was trained as a director and digital artist for film. 1995 Valentino made himself independent as a freelance director and multimedia artist. He created visual effects for the film industries and produced numerous international music videos and promotional films. As a specialist for visual effects and model tricks he worked under the management of directors and producer all around the world. Then in 2005 Valentino got out of the film industry to dedicate his whole creative work excluding the multimedia arts.
He deals with the key elements of a society which is driven and controlled by politics, war, fashion, entertainment and computer technologies. His works reflect contemporary developments and visions as well as utopias of the past like future, social structures which are marked by the influence of different cultures, life styles and technologies. The video camera, the photo camera, the computer and miniature models are equal, privileged tools in his creative working process.
HAHA...just found this, it is genius...I laughed so hard!
