Flooded park in Austria
Aaaamazing! Divers explored the park in Austria which each year is flooded crystal clear cold water. That happens always there then the temperature in atmosphere is rising (in spring). So, divers took cameras and visit that park… underwater. Being there, they captured sidewalks, benches, perfectly looking trees.
Creative photography series People ‘n Their Bodies by Pierre Brevard
Inspiring photo compositions by a young American graphic designer and photographer. Artist’s statement: This photo manipulation collection was very fun to do. In this project I wanted to show how the body can be expressed in many different ways but sill form around back into a whole figure. Through the forms that each model makes I wanted the viewer to be lead by their arms and head direction to keep the eye flowing throughout the whole figure.
Indian summer by Gábor Arion Kudász
Simple and beautiful. An innocent and creative summer of a kid simple makes you smile and experience nostalgic feelings. Photographer Gábor Arion Kudász spent a summer together with his son in Finland, Vantaa. “My son and I were communicating our fears and desires towards each other using his straightforward sketches and my photographs as a free and immediate correspondance hoping for a better understanding of our relationship.” - says photographer.
Gábor Arion Kudász shows us our lost natural spaces, the landscapes rewritten by humanity following the rules of classic image-making. His landscapes are vast still-lives on the edges of populated land and open areas, with all the material things that may well be seen as the negative effect of humanity on nature. The absurdity of his pictures stems from the subject itself and the manner of representation. Bridges and roundabouts, construction sites and billboards sit in the landscape so organically, it almost hurts. But they certainly force us to reconsider our notions of beauty and what is natural.

“Fog” part of “Alternative Snapshots of Our World»” by Metallus
The photographs were taken in various places around the world, and are viewed as “small” snapshots capturing the kind of daily existence we all live through. Snapshots which, to our eyes, may appear completely different and otherworldly, since the artist filters them through his personal experience, ultimately aiming to decode the secret hidden behind the superficial glamour of the image and to “narrate” his own story for each of these photographic moments. Using mixed arts, he processes the original images so that, in their final form, they project – even highlight – the truth that hides behind the “mask” of first impressions. His will is to render the emotions that led him to capture each photographic image, but mostly to place the viewer in the process of questioning and inquiry, through the awareness elicited by his work.
Metallus aka Panagiotis Metallinos:
He was born in Thessaloniki in April of 1969, where he lives and works to this day. He studied graphic design and visual communication. Starting in 1987, he has enjoyed continuous professional success in the sectors of advertising and the graphic arts. Currently, he also teaches at a School of Art & Design, in the graphics department. He was a member of the editorial team of “Black:White” magazine, as Director of Photography. Since 1989, he has actively pursued a primarily amateur interest in photography. His work has been exhibited in Thessaloniki, Greece.
San Francisco in black and white by Travis Jensen
I remember browsing intensively through the galleries online and when I found these artworks two words popped into my head immediately: quality and originality. It’s the young and talented artist Ernesto Artillo, who takes one’s breath away with these beautifully composed collages, and me, as well as our team, couldn’t be happier sharing the subtleties of enchanting life of this Spanish- born talent.
Hello Ernesto, first of all, thank you for agreeing to share your experiences with Republic X. Could you tell us how did you find yourself into this kind of art?
For me collage means to literally cut/break things to create a new order, even with my own images. I like to use pictures that I have made for something else, fashion editorials normally, take them out of that concept and give them a personal meaning. I suppose, collage makes me battle with my own conventions.
Collage aside, what kind of artist would you say you are? When and where did you start?
I wouldn’t say that I am an artist yet; I think you have to purify your feelings more, I am just trying. I’ve watched my father making collage since I was a child, but I didn’t start exploring the technique until three years ago. I started painting. I was really young and I used to go to the classes with a big group of old ladies. Then, I started to take pictures on my own and, in college, I focused on fashion and advertising. Now, I’m trying to mix all of those disciplines in my collages.
Where do you get inspiration from? Are there any particular artists or artworks which influenced your style in the first place?
I love ancient art like Renaissance portraits and Greek sculptures, but also modern artists like Matisse, Picasso or Soroya. I was brought up in a family where traditions matter, so Spanish culture, folklore, religion, flamenco… are always there too. Cinema and books are huge inspiration for me and I don’t understand life without music. Fashion has a lot to give too, but to be honest, people around me inspire me the most. What I feel for my familly, friends or loves are my best artistic tools.
That’s true, your work reminds a lot of ancient art and, I would even say, is a different, modern point of view to Renaissance. Is it something you try to express or just happens involuntary?
Both I think what we really want or need to express, happens involuntary. I want to create characters that are very strong but fragile at the same time, that’s why sometimes you can see the same person twice in one collage.
