Gray Malin is a Los Angeles based art photographer. His works take you to an adventure and give you an insight into his playful lifestyle. His art has a true feeling of escapism that we all aspire every now and again.
 
In Malin’s own words “We all work hard so that we can go on vacation. We all strive for that moment on the beach or by the pool. It’s something we all aspire towards, and that’s what I try to capture,” he explains. “A moment that you want to live in.”
 
Gray sees the world as an canvas for art and he hops on a doorless helicopter to capture his images all around the world. People, umbrellas, beaches, pools and other objects become his patterns and the visuals are bursting with composition, colour and endless summer bliss.

Malin itse kuvailee töitään seuraavasti “Me kaikki työskentelemme kovasti, jotta voimme lähteä lomalle. Tavoittelemme sitä hetkeä kun pääsemme rentoutumaan rannalle tai uima-altaalle. Se on jotain mitä kohti me kaikki pyrimme, ja sen minä yritän tallentaa kuviini”, hän selittää. “hetki, jossa haluat olla läsnä”.
 
Gray näkee maailman maalaus pohjana jolle luoda taidetta, ja hyppää ovettoman helikopterin kyytiin kuvatakseen taidevalokuviaan ympäri maailmaa. Ihmiset, päivänvarjot, rannat, uima-altaat ja muut objektit muuttuvat hänen kuvioikseen ja kuvien grafiikka pursuu koostumusta, värejä ja loputtoman kesän autuutta.

    I’ve actually never heard of him before but the symmetry and composition of his aerial photos is incredible! I’m in awe, it’s like looking at a sort of fantasy world! The colors are popping too!
