Surreal Artwork from Hikaru Cho

Posted on the 15 April 2015 by 72point @72hub

These are the latest surreal artworks from acclaimed artist Hikaru Cho – using optical illusions to create bizarre body images.

Tokyo-based Hikaru creates 3D optical illusions by painting directly onto the body with acrylic paint.

Her latest works include a model with two faces and a woman with eyes on different parts of her face.

She has teamed up with Samsung to create the series of images inspired by their new phones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

The surreal artwork depicts the British attitude towards self-editing as well as advances in communications technology and design.

Her six new designs represent different features on the phones such as wireless charging capabilities and super fast charging (10 minutes charging = up to 4 hours battery life).

The work also includes designs that nod to the modern fashion of filtering photos, as well as the physical design of the Galaxy S6 edge, which features a three-sided display.

Her final designs include ‘Filter Face’, ‘Wireless Charging’, ‘Super fast Charging’, ‘Swipe’ ‘Flat Face’ and ‘Edge’.

With the modern trend shifting towards editing photographs, Hikaru also incorporated a design that reflected our increasing use of filters.

Ines Van Gennip, Marketing Director of IT & Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland, said: “It was incredible working with such an innovative artist.

“It was interesting to see how she interpreted our designs as well as using the phones’ capabilities for further inspiration.

“With the ever evolving nature of technology, it seems fitting that we work with an artist who is so ground breaking with her work, as well as maintaining a personal element through her use of the body as a canvas.

“Essentially it reflects what we try to achieve as a company; bringing great advances to personal technology.”
