Your Weekly Mixx! DAF’s Weekly Mixx is a selection of contemporary art and/or art related videos chosen from artist and gallery submissions and from our own search for new and interesting works. This week, we feature the work of Claudio Fuente, Coista Magarakis, Pastel, Hector Frank, Jaqueline Rush Lee, Aida Muluneh, Monique Orsini, Stéphane Halleux, and a video featuring the three-dimensional art objects of Chie Hitotsuyama whose works use the material of old newspapers that stopped serving their role as an information medium. She breathes artistic life and value into those newspapers and repurposes them into new shapes. (via Vimeo)
Knowing my affinity for Steampunk, fellow artist and blogger Esther Barend, brought the creations of Belgian sculptor Sephane Halleux to my attention a little while ago, and I am happy to share his works today.
Halleux studied illustration at Saint Luc in Liege, Belgium from 1992-1995 and began a career at an animation film studio in Luxemburg, first as a colorist, and then as a layout artist. After seven years, he became frustrated by the lack of creativity and industrialization of animation, and left to work in a “bank-sale” furniture company where his passion for “old treasures” emerged.
His first exhibitions in 2005 were a great success and since that time, Halleux has been able pursue sculpting full-time.
