These seven artworks are from button badge gift box Broken Beauty containing badges from B.I.O. (By Invitation Only) Button Badge Series 17. The glitch visuals by FL@33's Tomi Vollauschek are from his collection of digital photographs featuring broken monitors, computer screens and handheld touchscreen devices.
___ The artworks represent an abstract optimism – celebrated by persevering and by discovering and holding on to occasional beauty in unforeseen moments of accidents and destruction.
BUTTON BADGE MOTIF PRINTS
FL@33 developed a new print edition idea for graphic art label and online boutique Stereohype – the studio's sister-company. The edition is called Button Badge Motif Prints.
___ The super-vibrant Fine Art Giclée Prints feature selected designs from Stereohype's ever-growing one inch (25mm) button badge collection. High resolution files of the circular artworks are enlarged to seven inch (178mm) and printed with love and vivid archival inks on a beautifully textured 310gsm Hahnemühle paper (portrait, 8x10" / 203x254mm). Prints are then embossed with a badge-sized Stereohype certification seal that FL@33 designed.
___ In the first year after launching this latest print edition Stereohype added just under 200 artworks to its collection. The print series promises to quickly grow to be as eclectic as Stereohype's widely-acclaimed button badge collection that already features over 1,500 artworks by over 500 established and emerging illustrators, graphic designers, typographers, photographers and artists from around the world.
