Ronald Kurniawan: Where the Sublime Meets the Contemporary

dayofthedead final 353x400 Ronald Kurniawan: Where the Sublime Meets the Contemporary

Ronald Kurniawan graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California, he currently resides in Los Angeles. Inspired by ideograms, syllables, letterforms, beasts, and heroic landscapes, he creates imagery in which the wilderness and civilization merge. A place where the sublime can coexist with the nuclear age. This juxtaposition of imagery also lends itself to Kurniawan’s creative process, where he uses the simple to express the complex and vice-versa.

Kurniawan finds inspiration in his life experiences, in the types of symbols that you see everywhere in your day-to-day life, which he then shapes into interesting imagery using a natural environment as a backdrop. Taking an idea and breaking it down into an icon; a metaphor for something larger that often depicts a place where the sublime and the contemporary can meet. 

(Personally, I’d love to see him design a graphic novel.)

    Strange this post is totaly unrelated to what I was searching google for, but it was listed on the first page. I guess your doing something right if Google likes you enough to put you on the first page of a non related search.

    Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.

    Cyclone [Maximuscle]: Used it for 2 months and noticed good results after first 10 days of working hard in gym. I find it a good alternative to measuring out creatine and protein mix seperately but hey these products are all about convenience right I take it for brekky each day but it takes discipline to not still snack as it doesnt fill you up by any means. I feel more full if mix it with a banana, glass of fresh orange, 1 activia and 1 actimel each morning. It takes about 5 mins and makes me feel healthy but who knows. Good luck.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
