About This Book GET THIS ANTHOLOGY ON YOUR ART RADAR!
Anatomy Rocks is an absolute treasure trove of beautiful, visually impressive works. This is a creative eyeball melt full of mouth-watering content. A tempestuous maelstrom of creative fusion, as contemporary art collides with anatomy. Mark Ryden’s cover picture captures the delights within, including an exemplary selection of Damien Hirst’s works.
Curated by Rodolphe Lachat this selection of artists is layered with intrigue and surprising twists. Resulting in a portfolio which is an absolute treasure trove of beautiful, visually impressive compositions. The curation is excellently gauged a real treat for the eyes, resulting in a stunning array of beautiful pictures.
Focused on artists whose practice harnesses a spectacular rebellious spirit, remixing anatomy into polished works of contemporary art. Creating slightly disturbing inspired compositions, which barbed wire like catch the eye and capture the imagination.
Unlike so many flaccid half baked contemporary art anthologies this is art with big cojones. Pictures fusing twisted surrealist aesthetics packing a real emotional punch. A radical curated portfolio geared to over stimulate your aesthetic neurones.
An unbelievably cool-looking book offering a real creative refuel and at the discounted prices, an absolute steal. Take a punt (the print quality is exemplary) and own a decadent contemporary art treat you won’t be disappointed in.

About the book:
Fluid forms are analogues of change and endless possibilities. Manifesting a capricious state that take on a life of its own once leaving our hands, mediums as varied as ink, watercolour, paint, acrylic, and digital paintbrush fuel artists and designers with inspirations, building a unique spectrum of work that break loose from sheer control into fun directed chaos during the creative process.
Collating some 150 trendsetting works spanning brand identities, print & packaging, typography, visual arts and artefacts, Making A Splash: Graphics that Flow is an exciting review that uncovers how the multifarious visual wonderment of liquid mediums triumph in marketable design. Divided into five sections, the title zooms in on various platforms, techniques and digital advancement that celebrate the charm of flowing visuals.
