JAKUB SPACEK

 

Jakub Špaček is a Czech visual effects artist now based in London. Originally from Prague, he was initially a self-taught artist who quickly became interested in visual effects and developed a passion for design. He then decided to study architecture, industrial design and interactive graphics. This is how he progressed as a freelance artist and eventually settled in London where he still works today.

 

 

Working with the notions of mystery and imagination is the essential key to producing amazing art pieces. His main sources of inspiration are nature, industrial and product design, architecture, the human body, the very concept of art and music.

NICOLAS MONTERRAT

 

Nicolas is a French GIF creator who draws his imagination from scientific or popular images from another time. He likes their formal side, a little rigid, applied, sometimes too serious. This makes him want to divert them from their original purpose, to bring them a little fantasy, humor or to titillate the imagination. He is also inspired by Terry Gilliam’s work in Monty Python for example, Nick Park’s, creator of Wallace and Gromit, Hombre_McSteez and his creative animations, and in a completely different genre, the amazing work of Georges Rousse or Felice Varini and the brilliant Philippe Halsman. These artists propose shifted, parallel, funny and sometimes disturbing worlds, an atmosphere that we clearly find in Nicolas’ work.

 

LE MOBILE

Nicolas Monterrat is a creator of GIFs located at the crossroads of humor, rhythm, aesthetics and poetry. Passionate about animation for as long as he can remember, this image format allows him to tinker at home with little offbeat stories, to explore surrealist and iconoclastic worlds. According to him, the interest of GIF lies in the fact that it allows to approach the perfect loop, to tell a story in a few seconds. Everything is in the rhythm and the quality of the sequences.

GHOST

 

Alex Zabei Vorota, better known as Ghost, is a Moldavian special effects artist based in Qatar. He has been making 3D art since the age of thirteen, and became a professional artist at 19. He studied in Paris and spent a few years working alongside old school French CGI artists at Digital District, Mundocom and Multiply studios. This artist particularly likes to work with effects, especially soft bodies, fluids and particles, and is inspired by the unusual things nature has to offer.

Alex’s work is characterized by its amazing realism. As evidenced by his famous work on 3D octopuses, he is indeed able to create the illusion of truth about his creations, so much so that this special effects specialist managed to make his audience believe that his CGI octopus was real. The most astonishing thing is that he testifies that he never intended to deceive or mislead anyone, but his eyes got so used to seeing this octopus after days of endless work that he was no longer able to give an opinion on its realism once the piece was finished.
