NastPlas is a Madrid-based creative duo, started in 2006 by illustrator Fran R. Learte (aka, â€śdrFranken”) and creative director Natalia Molinos. Together, they change the way we look at art by bringing 2D forms into experimental digital spaces. For example, their series â€śQUOâ€ť offers a new interpretation of oil paintings by transforming the brushstrokes into 3D; abstract faces suddenly become patchwork landscapes of musculature and expression. A fusion of tradition and science can be seen throughout their work, such as in the darkly poetic â€śDEIMOSâ€ť images, which blend romantic imagery with futuristic bodies. Lastly, they alsoÂ animated a traffic regulatorâ€”a recently-discovered protein that may be crucial in the transportation of molecules inside nerve cells (see the GIF below). As their fascinating portfolio reveals, NastPlasâ€™ subject range is vast and exploratory, marked by a determination to illustrate the new frontiers.
