Portrait #2

Angelo Plessas' Portrait 2 evokes a candy coloured funfair atmosphere in combination with retro electronic aesthetics: two coloured wheels that look like classic peppermint candies spin mechanically while bouncing over the screen, as if they were animated by a bubble-blowing machine at the centre bottom of the frame.

Plessas' work is famous for its stark graphic style. The artist combines virtual realities with real-world follow-ups that are easily recognised due to their iconic imagery and stark contrasts. Portrait 2 is an excellent example regarding form and animation: the aesthetic of retro-chique early computer games seems influenced by simple pop colour coding that creates a playful decorative animation.
