Madbutt is a Brisbane, Australia based artist who experiments with hand cut and digital collage using mixed media. He uses his laptop when he is travelling and in between hand cut works. He keeps it simple using an application called Pixelmator.
When he is doing hand cut collage he uses an xacto scalpel, archival glue, a ruler, pencil and cutting board. He has used different paints in the past but he feels as though he could have more fun using this medium with larger works. He tries to hold off on using vintage materials until he is 100% sure that he has a great concept to work with.
The online identity of Boston-based artist Mike Parisella, Slime Sunday’s motion graphics and collages are a view into an alternate reality – where disembodied heads and digital babies play in a sea of saturated color, and endless shapes find joy in repetition.
If trippy, outlandish digital visuals are your thing, then Slime Sunday is a name you need to know.

Eyal Gever is a cutting-edge contemporary artist whose work sits at the fusion of art and technology. Using just a palette of code, he develops life-like digital simulations of moments in time — often dramatic or catastrophic in nature — from which he fabricates 3D-printed sculptures and installations.
Gever, born in 1970 in Tel Aviv, Israel, attended Jerusalem’s prestigious Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, but was injured while performing his mandatory national service with the IDF, where he served for two-and-a-half years as a paratrooper (special operations unit). Volunteering for the IDF’s specialist computer R&D unit, Mamram, he began to master the computer simulation skills which would later shape and infuse his art.
Mason Lindroth’s work exists somewhere between the realm of a hellish nightmare, surreal art, and collages. It’s all those things, and also none of them. Lindroth’s repeated animated aesthetic is wholly unique. The objects themselves are grotesque, ranging from eerie blank-staring faces to vintage stock-like footage of families. Nothing blends together, it becomes a distorted conglomerate of gif-able lo-fi clipart.
You can recognize Lindroth work due to the sparing, dotty Apple II-like visuals and use of claymation. The aesthetic compliments Mason’s interest in warping the ordinary: black-and-white is the status quo, whereas color can punctuate a peculiar presence with immediacy.

Miami and New York based artist Juan Travieso‘s work explores notions of impermanence and decay through a combined language of pop, realism, and abstraction. Figures, be them humans or animals, are broken up into spaces and forms much like 3d models, speaking to both their temporality and transition into the digital age.
His paintings involve images ranging from Soviet propaganda and cartoons, to the iconic figures of the Cuban revolution. Woven inside is the personal and how these personal and cultural icons are in constant conflict and transformation. Ambitious and daring are qualities in the very flesh of his work. Travieso is a dynamic maker he approaches painting with great appetite and produces a feast for the eyes and mind.
