Stellar is the stunning gif-centered work of New York-based artist Ignacio Torres. Ignacio is known for exploring the “glorification of the mundane and objectification of the human body.”



Torres says of Stellar, “This project began from the theory that humans are made of cosmic matter as a result of a stars death. I created imagery that showcased this cosmic birth through the use of dust and reflective confetti to create galaxies. The models organic bodily expressions as they are frozen in time between the particles suggest their celestial creation. In addition, space and time is heightened by the use of three-dimensional animated gifs. Their movement serves as a visual metaphor to the spatial link we share with stars as well as their separateness through time.”




His recent client list boasts iconic brands (and names) such as Diesel, Opening Ceremony, NEON, EMI, Dazed and Confused, Nicola Formichetti, Nine West, Sarah Jaffe, KOMET, Festi’neuch and The Jones Group Inc.
