Split Run is a new portfolio section that uses the power of both print and the Internet. Featuring an original image-maker who does both stills and motion work, the portfolio appears in Applied Arts Magazine and on www.appliedartsmag.com. Pick up the May/June 2012 issue of Applied Arts to see the print portfolio of Frank Lam and Zema.
Montrealers Frank Lam and Zema met eight years ago through mutual skateboarding friends, and soon discovered a love for cutting-edge graffiti, urban art and each other. Inspired by filmmakers Tim Burton (Zema) and Spike Jonze (Lam), the couple began collaborating on a wide variety of commercial and personal projects, switching seamlessly from photography to motion, from spray paint to acrylic paint, from traditional animation to digital compositing.
The creative partners most enjoy combining elements of each other’s visions to produce memorable, quirky art that has made their tag names well known throughout Montreal’s underground scene. . . . Read Split Run and see the motion work of Frank Lam and Zema here.
