Keng Lye Resin Paintings 1

We’ve covered Singaporean artist Keng Lye before, but his new work is even more astounding. It’s hard to believe these fish, frogs and turtles aren’t really alive, but each is created using carefully applied layers of acrylic paint locked in layers of clear resin.

1 Tiny Embroidered Animals by Chloe Giordano

Imagine spending 2-3 weeks to create something not much larger than a sewing thimble. That’s often how long it takes Oxford-based artist Chloe Giordano to design, plan, and embroider each of her tiny animals. With multiple shades of each thread color as well as using 2 different types of thread- embroidery and sewing- she achieves a depth and texture that give a realistic feel to each creature. The already adorable and peaceful forest animals look even cuter in this teeny tiny size. [Read more...]

Devoting a life to art can be one of the most fulfilling, as well as challenging, ways to live.

He has compiled the portraits into a book called Temple of Art, which will be available this October and he wants to take his vision a step further and turn the stories into a documentary.
