Bioworkz


 

What is Bioworkz?​​​​​​​​​​​
I’ve always been inspired by H.R. Giger and his work has been defined as “Biomechanics”. Early in my artistic career, I created lots of biomechanical illustrations. That’s how I came up with the moniker BioWorkZ. It’s a moniker I’ve been using since college and it has stuck with me since.​

Who is Ben Kwok?​​​​​​​​​​​​

BioWorkZ a.k.a. Ben Kwok is an L.A. based graphic artist and illustrator. Born in Taiwan, raised in Los Angeles, art has always been a huge part of my life. When I could first use chopsticks, I was already doodling on whatever I could get my hands on. I love complex hyper detailed artwork. To lose myself into the “flow” of drawing is about as good as it gets. I’m very passionate about what I do, that’s why I continue doing it.

I was heavily influenced by the works of H.R. Giger, Alfonse Mucha. Now, I find myself being drawn into type/lettering inspired artwork. Especially works by Aaron Horkey, and David A. Smith. Their attention to detail is simply amazing. I can only hope to get as good or come close to their caliber.

Apparel​​​​​​​​​​​

I’ve been in the apparel business for almost 8 years. Early in my career, I was lucky enough to work at a silk screen print house. Learning to separate colors, burning screens, mixing colors, understanding different inks, how they react with different fabrics. Experimenting with mesh count, testing the outcome of different combination of inks and fabrics. Ultimately, understanding the limitations of how the artwork will translate best once printed onto the garment.

Been with several apparel companies and had the opportunity to work freelance with many more. I am confident I can deliver the right image with the right style. From Mens, Womens, Juniors, Tweens, Kids, and Babies. I’ve done it all and will continue to polish my portfolio. I welcome a challenge…how else will I get better?

​​

Illustration​​​​​​​​​​​​
​Highly detailed, rendered, polished illustration is what I strive for. I want the artwork to pull the viewer in and hold them hostage. I want the image to be initially striking, and when the viewer gets up close and personal, I want the image to unfold into greater details while the viewer absorbs the intricacies and attention to little details. That’s what I personally love about illustrations and that how I would like my art to be perceived.

Robotic Blood Printer Draws


ted-lawson-self-portrait-robotic-blood-machine-designboom-01

‘Drawing blood’ takes on a different description for brooklyn-based artist Ted Lawson‘s ‘ghost in the machine’: A life-sized, nude self-portrait rendered from his own bodily fluid. Fed intravenously to a CNC machine, lawson’s blood traverses through the mechanical parts, while a robotic arm attached to the device — programmed to trace the designated illustration — carefully maps out the human form.

 

‘I have always used many different technologies to create my work and the goal is usually to find a way to turn those towards something organic and human.‘ Lawson tells us ‘I’m generally not into doing selfies, particularly nude ones, but when I came up with the idea to connect my blood directly to the robot CNC machine, it just made too much sense to not try one as a full nude self-portrait.’

Everything That Was Wrong With The Ninja Turtles Has Been Fixed.


21c4667c976a0d1ab5f5882edb8635bb

The artist known simply as Clog Two, hails from Singapore City, Singapore, and has done something that Micheal Bay, and $125 million dollars couldn’t… Reinvent the Ninja Turtles, and make them look good.  The new look of the Turtles in this years summer fiasco was something many classic fans had issues with.  (It was stated that using facial motion capture wouldn’t translate properly if the digital turtles didn’t have nostrils and lips like their live action counterparts.)  But Clog has managed to do them justice, illustrating the TMNT heroes and villains with tattoos and accessories that compliment the characters.  If you want a print for yourself , hit up Clog at clog02@electrocaine.com, they sell for around USD320.

Akacorleone Tricks Eye Anamorphic Installation


corleone-find-yourself-in-chaos-designboom-01

Portuguese artist Akacorleone is presenting a solo show at the underdogs gallery, lisbon, comprised of a vast collection of installations, graffiti works and illustrations. At the exhibit’s centerpiece is the anamorphic ‘find yourself in chaos’, a richly colored circle which bears the piece’s namesake as a bold typographic composition. Comprised of various objects, items and memorabilia, the dynamic teal colored installation is optically different at every angle and tricks the eye by appearing as a two-dimensional surface when viewed straight on. Symbolism behind the work and notions addressed throughout the exhibition are described by the artist as ‘the feeling of excess of information in the brain which makes it impossible to focus on one task alone, the idea that we’re never satisfied making us therefore accumulate, the visual pollution to which we submit ourselves without questioning’. Akacorleone is currently exhibiting ‘find yourself in chaos’ and other works at the underdogs gallery.

When it comes to photo-realistic painting, life-like works of art, or pieces that suspend disbelief, Andreas Englund’s “The Life Of A Superhero” collection stands in a class of its own.  It’s almost needless to say that his talent with a paintbrush is incredible given his style of art, but his ability to tell the story of an entire life with his works is even better.  Check the method below.

100 Colors Exhibition – Japan


Picture 9

With our fascination with both minimalism and color, we’ve kept an eye on Emmanuelle Moureaux, the French-born and Tokyo-based architect famous for her use of candy-hued colors in many of her projects. For many years, Moreaux has explored the use of color and the use of the traditional Japanese paper screens as dividers. Many of her projects in retail, hospitality and public spaces express some combination of the two, using colorful screens as dividers and using color as a space maker.

Pop Culture Bros Connecting with Other Bros

Created by an artist known only as Paper Beats Scissors, this collection of  illustrations depicts the single moment when two different characters from pop culture meet and give each other an empathetic fist bump due to a similarly depressing trait that they both share. For instance, when the Dark Knight and Harry Potter meet for the first time, they fist bump the fact that they are both orphans. There are a huge amount of characters included within the series from film, television, video games, comic books, animation and technology.

Ai Weiwei – Forever Bicycles in Toronto


aiweiwei_foreverbicycles_00

As part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche in Toronto this weekend, renowned Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei has recreated his stunning Forever Bicycles installation in the center of Nathan Phillips Square. The gigantic piece dominates the majority of the outdoor space, featuring over 3,000 bicycles and measuring a colossal 100 ft long and 30 ft wide. By using the popular Yongjiu bikes (Yongjiu roughly translates as “forever bicycles” – hence the installation’s name) to create the labyrinth like structure, Weiwei comments on the ever changing and often confusing social environment not only in China, but around the world.

Falcon Motorcycles of Ian Barry

American industrial designer, artist, and motorcycle engineer Ian Barry fascinates motorsport enthusiasts with his super-sleek, monster mechanics fused with exquisite artistry and workmanship. He is best known for the synthesis of sensual, rounded lines with chunky, robust metallic hardware. Historically and culturally influenced, Barry collects rare motorcycle engines of famed British beauties. Using the engine as both a creative influence and a structural framework, he has developed a practice of designing, engineering, and manufacturing each entire vehicle from scratch. Together with partner Amaryllis Knight, he co-founded Los Angeles’s Falcon Motorcycles and has since been working on the falcon series, a collection of 10 completely unique designs which have been refurbished from pieces of vintage finds. Four of ten falcons have been completed, and each high-end mammoth creation is as enticing and extravagant as its predecessor.

Hong Yi Plays with her Food

Almost every day for one month, Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi created a fun illustration made with food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs.

Baitogogo by Henrique Oliveira


baitogogo_02 baitogogo_03 baitogogo_04

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s striking new installation “Baitogogo” has now opened at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. The complex “network of organic materials” sees existing concrete and plaster pillars transform midway into contorted and intertwining organic material reminiscent of the Amazon rainforest. The piece is typical of Oliveira’s work, which often uses materials from the Brazilian urban landscape such as wood taken from fences surrounding and blocking access to construction sites. Through these materials, Oliveria aims to highlight the organic growth of São Paulo’s favelas as well as the “endemic and parasitic nature of these constructions.” Inspiration is also drawn from medical textbooks and studies of physical pathologies such as tumors.
