Which artist / designer created this?
I've been looking for this artist for such a long period of time. I really don't know how to explain his artwork nor do I know how to describe what type of art he creates. From what I can remember, his artwork is modern, urban, contemporary, abstract... and somewhat geometric and symmetric. Yeah, I know, I am not good at describing, right? Well what I do know for sure is that he is an American artist, and is still alive. Here are some pictures that vaguely describe his works:

the design of the lampshade:


the design of the frame:




the curvy lines


Sorry, I am not good at finding pictures. But these are the only similar ones I can find I suck at the internet lol. I remember looking at his work online a year ago, and his works took the entire art gallery's wall space. And from what I can remember, his work reflected more of a computer-graphic-y modern abstract art with no "central" focus; and I believe they were somewhat symmetrical.

Pleaseeeee someone help me find this artist. Thanks.

This screen capture is from a youtube video called Ferris Bueller's Day off
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmDvdGCEWvE

Does anyone know what the grey sculpture at the left is by?
In the movie, it's at 00:50 seconds
Maybe the small square sculpture on the right is also by the same artist?
I'd really like to know...

Photo credit = The Art Institute of Chicago

This is a different view - but it is the same work - by David Smith, American 1906-1965 - 'Tanktotem' - 1952

And clearly, the filming was actually done at The Art Institute of Chicago.

I see this isn't the most active thread, yet I hope someone can help me out here. I'm looking for the 'running' Chanel logo. I'm not a hundred per cent who made it, if it was an artist or graphic designer or what... I think I've also seen some accessories made from the same motif/idea. Anyone know where I can find the picture in decent resolution and/or who made it? It's this one:


(credit: myself for the image, the chanel-logo-thing here was cut out from another picture from my collection, specific source unknown I'm aftaid)


edit: the necklace I was talking about is Alex + Chloe, but I don't think they are behind the above picture)

I know this thread is pretty dead, but I thought I'd try anyway.
I found this piece in a trend book, and really want to know who it's by (it wasn't referenced), even if it's just a hunch.
