GIF Art by DarkAngelØne
Who knew back in the ’90s when GIFs were aesthetically on the same level as MIDI music that a decade later they would become a bona fide art form? DarkAngelØne might not consider himself an artist, but he’s another name to add to the ever-expanding list of people manipulating art with GIFs. His work is a combination of what happens when Internet and post-modernism combine. His pieces are essentially remixes of other people’s art with added animations, but the artistic liberty he takes shows what happens when art intermingles with “share-friendly” web culture. “It is my opinion that art is meant to be shared and enjoyed,” he says. “It doesn’t belong to me, it belongs to anyone it calls to.” Don’t forget to also check out his Youtube that features music video versions of his animation work.
