Tribute to Rene

In this interesting motion-graphics tribute to the great surrealist painter, London-based Box Of Toys Audio and video art studio flipEVIL explore some of René Magritte’s most iconic creations with 3D animation. I liked that they didn’t attempt any exact replications, although it’s been done with some success before in the 3D rendering of Picasso’s Guernica. Instead, with the help of an original piano score, they focused on the more intriguing, mind-bending aspect of Magritte’s imagery. After all, the goal of the master’s work was to challenge observers’ preconceived notions of reality and compel them to be hyper aware of their surroundings.
