The official line-up: Creative Future Issue #03
Written by C. Andersen • The Creative Future Project Journal • April 27th, 2012
After serval months of hard work and numerous late nights in the studio, we’re finally ready to announce the official line-up of artists which will be featured in our upcoming issue, Creative Future Issue #03. We have once again found a very relevant and unique group of artists, and with the final line-up of features set, Creative Future Issue #03 is slowly starting to take shape. Even though it’s sometimes hard to keep a project like this running, we’ve surely found a great rhythm here at Creative Future. With a willingness to learn, the Creative Project is constantly developing and evolving. We have certainly come a long way since we released our first issue in the fall last year. With an eye for detail and quality, we’ve tried to take this issue to new artistic dimensions – not only by exploring new and unknown paths within the arts, but also by attacking the content, quality and look with new creative approaches. With less than a month to the actual release it’s truly an honor to present to you:
(Main Feature & Cover Artist of Creative Future Issue #03)
New York-based artist and creator of the semi-biographical character Darcel Disappoints, Craig Redman, is this issue’s official cover artist and main-feature. Having created the now famous one-eyed character, Craig covers everything from lonely, inconsequential and embarrassing experiences, to personal chronicles of his daily endeavors in New York through Darcel Disappoints. With numerous art projects in progress, we speak with Craig Redman on his now famous character Darcel Disappoints, his early days as an artist and what plans he has for the future.
Andre D. Wagner:
New York-based photographer, Andre D. Wagner, is certainly an artist of contrasts who has already created an impressive portfolio of incredible photo-stories and creative journals, documenting the life and style of our generation’s future visionaries and creative thinkers. Having worked close to Street Etiquette, Jesse Boykins III and Joshua Bennett just to name a few, we speak to Andre Wagner about coming to New York, the ideas and visions behind his creative journals and what his plans are for the future.
Having worked professionally in art over the past decade by creating unique sculptures of old broken skate decks, Haroshi is today a globally recognized artist, known for his very controversial and characteristic signature style. With a special eye for detail, composition and structure, we speak with the Japanese artist on his early days as an artist growing up in Japan, the process behind his quite controversial work and his current view on the traditional art world.
Kelsey Brookes is a scientist by training and artist by vocation. Using common motifs as animals, naked bodies, spiritual beings, and geometric patterns, Kelsey Brookes combines new and different elements in his paradoxical flowing paintings, which all leaves his audience behind wondering what the hell is going on. Having created an amazing collection of colorful paintings over the years, we sat down with Kelsey Brookes to chat about the aesthetic of his artworks, his inspiration sources and the story behind his motifs.
Pow Wow is a globally known street art/graffiti event, founded by artist and gallery owner Jasper Wong. Striving to engage with the broader community in the process and creation of art, Pow Wow gathers some of todays most talented and creative contemporary artists every year with the goal of turning an entire neighborhood into a contemporary piece of art. After having just finished this years Pow Wow event in Hawaii, we speak to Jasper Wong about the concept behind the event, his visions for the project and where he sees the project going in the future
