OUR (LONG LASTING) SERIES
» censorship is a bitch «
» photorealism is a beach «
Each individual work is an OPUS followed by a number (or number and additional letter for variations).
As an example, the work shown above is OPUS 1198.
In the early works, each opus was presented on its own and sold separately. Then, themes started to emerge on various works and they worked better together... therefore, mini-series of different formats were the consequence.
Our motto (or the purpose to make our art) is found in the text we add to every opus. It started with a plain “flipados team” which acts more as a signature than an artists statement. But then it evolved according to the problems we encountered and the mood of the moment. Let’s see some examples chronologically:

Opus, octopus and 18X
tHE fLIPADOS tEAM present their digital collages in several formats beyond the individual OPUS. One opus should tell a story but sometimes it is only a fleeting moment in a longer story. So we have FINOPUS (3 opera displayed together horizontally or 4 opera vertically framed) and for even longer stories or persevering themes tHE fLIPADOS paralleled their friend, the OCTOPUS (that's 8 opera all at once). For neverending sagas of epic duration we have the mega format: 18X (no need to tell you how many opera there, right?)
As another example, the work on the right is OCTOPUS gr8/1 and the first work presented high above on the site is an 18X (the red variation of that particular work was exhibited @ MUSEU NACIONAL SOARES DOS REIS, in Porto - Portugal, as part of a group show).
OPUS (30 cm x 40 cm), FINOPUS & OCTOPUS
1) Digital collage, lambda print on photographic paper, signed and stamped
2) Additionally, they can be framed in black, or white, or light wood with glass or acrylic
18X (150 cm x 100 cm)
Digital collage, lambda print on photographic paper, mounted on dibond aluminium
Although original work is something printed no more than seven times (a convention of the art world) we @ VANTAG decided to limit that to 5 prints available for sale (the other 2 being artist's proofs).
So, Vantag's guarantee is that we have 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, 5/5 (and then AP 1 and AP 2).
(You can see photos of some of these features - below - in the " + info" section)
Within the 15 hundred works we have done so far as part of the 2 enduring and persevering mottos (censorship is a bitch & photorealism is a beach) there were relevant subjects that led to the creation of series and help define the works better.
OPUS 1198, already mentioned, is part of the "flipado's PSYCHO news" series and the 18X of museum fame is part of the "OP art" series. Other significant series from the past are:
- when worlds collide
- free the nipple (like opus 1028 below)
