Celebrate 25 years of the GIF with MiRon
If there is one word to describe GIF artist MiRon’s work, it’s chunky. Using simple black shapes and a white background, MiRon is able to alter your perception with less than five frames.
“GIF is the most interesting format of my Tumblr generation. It is available to everyone who has got [a] computer. That makes it an integral part of modern Internet culture. For me, as an artist, it brings life to my creatures.
“I think that magazines and books will use GIFs as a common visual language. There will be more and more artists using GIFs as mediators between [the] world and themselves.”
