Adam Martinakis - 3D digital art

 
Born in LubaƄ, Poland, in 1972, Adam Martinakis
Martinakis’ range of Computer-Generated visual media works with themes surrounding the organic and the digital, often exploring the human form by deconstructing it to vein-like layers. Described as a mixture of surrealism and futurism,  Martinakis’ work “combines art, philosophy and science to create works of art that make profound statements about the human condition.”
Adam explains, that he is very interested in the common feelings and situations that we all go through. Childhood, for instance, is a common period of our lives, but as the time goes by it looks more like a dream… Our body is the only home that we really have, and the most expressive tool we’ve got - he sais. Even when we don’t use it, like when we sleep or just sit and think, we always imagine ourselves in our bodies. He uses it as a symbol of human presence.”
 So he work into digital environments with the usage of computers and the help of 3d software. The 3d models are created or inserted into the program with many techniques, depending on the needed atmosphere of the artistic content. Materials are set to cover the models and lighting designed to bring light to the scene.

Hyperrealistic ‘Wood’ Sculptures that are Actually Made of Ceramic

With nature undergoing a perpetual transformation, everything derived from nature is subject to the same repetitive cycle of growth and decay—of life and death. Change is a constant reminder that permanence is the ultimate illusion. It is through the creation of hyper-realistic sculpture that David White explores the relationship between nature, man, and the phenomenon of impermanence. He seeks to expose the beauty that often results from decay while, at the same time, making his viewer question their own perception of the world around them. To accomplish this,an artist begin by observing instances of decay within his surroundings that he finds inspiring due to form, color, or texture. With clay as his medium of choice he then meticulously render by hand those elements, taking advantage of clay’s innate ability to mimic a wide variety of materials. 
"There is a peace that can be found in even the simplest things. Ordinary elements within our environments offer both visual and physical reminders of our connection with nature." 









THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CAME HERE, SPEND A LITTLE OF YOUR TIME AND HOPEFULLY FOUND SOMETHING INSPIRING... I WISH YOU ALL TO BE HAPPY AND STAY CREATIVE!!!!
