Artwork Explained: Cyber Blackout

This week we are dropping the Cyber Blackout apparel range inspired by Neo-Cyber tattoo artistry. A newly developing tattoo sub genre that take elements of blackout tattoo artistry, bio mechanical tattoo artistry and elements of the matrix and artificial intelligence.

Biomechanical, AI art on the other hand was established in 1979. The sci-fi/horror film genre was about to be forever changed with the birth of the cult classic film, Alien. The genius behind the forms in this graphic film was H.R Giger, the artist credited with developing the biomechanical art and design aesthetic. Biomechanical art is a combination of both organic matter and robotics and mechanics. This artistic style still carries some serious weight throughout the film, music, and art industries today.

As a painter and artist, Giger worked to create a medium that combined human forms with alien shapes and visceral systems. His work became massively popularised in the 1980s, thanks to his association with outsider art groups in the horror film and punk music scenes. His signature biomechanical style was then cultivated into the popular art form it is today. 

We are now seeing this bio-mech art style being borrowed and translated into tech, cyber and virus art as we are technologically evolving. The idea is that the human is technologically evolving and half human half tech. This design is a perfect example of the blend between technological patterns and the human form.
