James White was born in 1977 and calls Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada his home. His parents were never able to keep typewriter paper in the house as James would steal it for drawings as early as the age of 4. Upon graduation of highschool he attended a Graphic Design course in his hometown where he was introduced to Photoshop and Illustrator, tools he still uses today. James never stopped creating and working on his own projects that took up his evenings and weekends which resulted in the creation of the Signalnoise Studio.

Today, James is focusing on various neon-infused art projects, creating some pieces to compliment his childhood in the 1980s. He also spends a lot of time on the road speaking at various design conventions and events around the world.

Paris based artist Victor Moattis work focuses on simple shapes, complex assembly and dreamy colors. Through his many pieces, a certain palette of color emerges and characterizes his work. The bluish and violet hues are a constant along with playful shadows and cosmic landscapes.

A very 80s and retro futuristic aesthetic is visually a result from his work and the techniques used and the elements present place it out of time and out of any terrestrial place known to man for that matter.

Eric White presents photorealistic scenes with a surreal visual twist in his cinematic paintings. For source materials, White turns to 1940s-era Hollywood films and film noir; he also claims inspiration from David Lynch’s darkly humorous TV series Twin Peaks. Compressing a sequence of events into a single moment, White creates claustrophobic scenes populated by glamorous figures locked in ambiguous psychological drama.

Yoko Honda‘s use of vibrant neon colors and the swirly, zig-zagged and geometrical designs that defined the decade completely bring you into the 80s. Through a combination of digital painting and print, she constructs scenes of resplendent kitsch, made up of palm trees, motels, neon signs and swimming pools, all inter-dispersed with structured lines, tiles or interior architecture.

An illustrator and creative design artist, Ray Oranges combines retro color palettes with abstract geometric shapes. The absence of cluttering matter, enhanced by the mastery use of long shadows and bursts of light creates an emotional response in the viewer.

The skilful use of full and empty spaces within the composition, with a predominance of the latter, is open territory for the viewer to fill the space with feelings and experiences; Ray aims at creating a meaningful dialogue with the viewer rather than establishing a relationship of command.

Ryan Heshka was born in Manitoba, Canada, and grew up in Winnipeg.  Fueled by long prairie winters, he spent a lot of his childhood drawing, building cardboard cities and making super 8 films.  Early influences that persist to this day include antiquated comics and pulp magazines, natural history, graphic design and music, movies and animation.  Formally trained in interior design, he is self-taught as an artist.

The artist blends his childhood memories with the image of a postcard Canada, a snowy land of evergreen forests and frozen lakes, the habitat of deer, beavers and legendary creatures like the Sasquatch, or Bigfoot merged with clichés and stereotypes, attempting to construct an original image of his nation, balanced between reality and fiction, past and future.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has commissioned a series of posters celebrating the future of space travel with retro-inspired designs. Evoking a golden age of exploration, the Visions of the Future campaign imagines a time when one might travel to Jupiter for weather balloon rides the same way we seek out Hawaiian vacations for their sunsets, and encourages us to think not only about the kind of future we want but how we might get there.

Batten Sportswear in Fall 2012 will be ideal men’s clothing (at least for us)

ACL mentioned what we have thought since we first tried on a Batten jacket at Steven Alan earlier this season: Batten Sportswear is an Engineered Garments to the surf/ retro-outdoor world. ACL got a glimpse of the new Fall/Winter 2012 line that Batten will be releasing, and those fleeces, the pocket-crewneck sweatshirt, and these parkas are near the ideal of what we like to wear all day everyday. We live in SF, the comfort-wear capital of the world (we stole that line from Parra when he was here a few weeks back).
