Whimsical Illustrations Merge with Everyday Objects

Thursday, January 23, 2014 |
Instagram continues to pave the way for innovative artists like graphic designer Javier Pérez, who regularly adds to his playful series entitled Instagram Experiments. Using a variety of everyday objects combined with simple line drawings, the Ecuador-based artist constructs whimsical scenes in all shapes and sizes.
From a still life of lungs to adventures in spaghetti rain, Pérez finds ways to bring life to all kinds of static objects. His imagination leads to many inventive creatures and characters and, through just a few quick pen strokes, he transforms small, unexpected food, flowers, gadgets, and tools into lively and expressive artworks. His cheerful collection, which will certainly make you smile, is the artist's way of reminding us that "we [all] have an inner child who wants to have fun and play."
The world is filled with possibilities according to clever Ecuador-based artist Javier Perez. From the graphic designer's perspective, any little object can be redefined to communicate a whimsical idea that will make just about anybody smile.
Perez first began his Instagram Experiments last fall with two forks, some loose change, and a drinking straw, among other things, and he has yet to run out of playfully clever ideas. He uses objects like a single grape on a stem or a thumbtack as the foundation for his idea, and he then pairs the three-dimensional shapes with a simple ink line drawing to complete the concept.

Thanks to his expressive imagination, Perez brings to life a small scrap of food or a static office supply by visualizing his concepts, and then creating the clever interactions between elements that result in this delightfully entertaining series.
