Spanish studio Serial Cut collaborated with the German artist Bartholot to create these artistic images named Unmasked Demiurges. In this work they staged masked characters and draped in three colors: black, gray and purple.
In the professional world, it’s not uncommon for photographers to collaborate with other artists in order to create products or satisfy what a client wants. So Bartholot and Serial Cut worked together to produce a series of portraits for the OFFF art festival. Serial Cut has quite the client list ranging from Absolut, Adobe, AT&T, BlackBerry, Burger King, all the way to Volkswagen.
Run by Sergio del Puerto, he tells us about how the idea for Unmasked: Demiurges came about.
The final works always have this defined, sleek, crisp look. Bartholot has a background in the History of Art and Graphic Design, but he wasn’t really happy with it. Then he had the opportunity to play with photography as an assistant.

Spanish design studio Vasava approached Serial Cut asking for 12 portraits to be published in an art book celebrating the 15th anniversary of the OFFF festival. They asked for anonymous demiurges representing some of the most influential contemporary designers that have been assisting to OFFF festival over the curse of time. Then came the idea of going back to the roots and putting tights on the model’s faces and cover their bodies with some interesting drapings.
The final result is really mystical figures that improve our imaginative sense.
