Blaine Fontana

The selection below is some of my favourite commissioned pieces of work by Blaine Fontana. He works a lot more on canvass producing a lot of fine art, however has done these pieces below for companies such as Vans, Re-vision and Kid robot. He works in print, illustration and sculpture and creates a lot of his work by repeatedly working over layer and layer until he thinks the piece is a success.  I like the history that his 2d pieces of work has, how you can see layers fading and disappearing into one another, almost like one giant montage. The toys below for Kid robot combine fine art and graphics together, the decor of the models were created using oils on canvass then printed onto plastic.
