Art is an expression of what’s on the inside and now we can see what it was that gave Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent Van Gogh their signature styles. In an ad campaign for MASP Art School in Sao Paolo, Brazilian advertising agency DDB puts famous artists on the dissecting board to show how their insides are different from ours. Each artist’s internal organs are presented as he might have painted them. My imagination is running rampant with all of the possibilities for a continuation of this series. [Read more...]

The items a person chooses to carry with them at all times can give clues to piece together their personalities. In a diptych series, which has been made into a book called BAG, photographer Ellie Brown photographs everyday people of all ages with their bags then asks them to open up their bags so that she can take a picture of the contents. She shows a dichotomous view view between each person’s public and private identity. A Boston-native currently based in Philadelphia, where she is a professor at Moore College of Art, Brown beautifully executed this concept conceived by Camille Thoman. [Read more...]

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff,” said Carl Sagan in Cosmos. Russian photographer Daria Khoroshavina brings this quote to life with this beautiful conceptual series we are all made of stars. Using body paint, glitter, and black light, her subjects appear to be made up of stars. Also into retouching and cinemagraphs, Khoroshovina used a Canon 6d/50mm 1.4 for this series but also owns some vintage zenit cameras with a bunch of helios lenses. [Read more...]

Mommy blogger Angie, who gives her 4 year old daughter the nickname Mayhem to preserve some anonymity, noticed early on that her daughter was into fashion far more than a typical toddler. Mayhem withdrew interest from her pre-made princess dresses and started using Angie’s scarves and sheets to create her own dresses. In attempt to restore order in her closets, Angie suggested that they make dresses together out of paper. Mayhem was hooked and still is 9 months later, which is an eternity in toddler time, leading us to believe this is more than just a phase. Angie started the hashtag #fashionbymayhem and has begun gathering a following of people who can’t wait to see what the two will come up with next. [Read more...]

It’s hard to say what’s cooler: artist Mad King’s philosophy on art or the art itself. The self-taught artist AKA Jake Johanson creates paintings by hand that you feel like you could walk right into. Repeating patterns and geometric shapes give each piece a mind-bending three dimensionality that top layer objects appear to float upon. Based in Denver, he has painted entire walls in this style, but these images can not even do justice to what seeing the paintings in reality is like. Since he uses metallic paints and multiple sheens of poly-acrylic paints, a picture can never show the depth and variety of designs that is produced in different light settings. [Read more...]
