Window Illusions on the Streets of Istanbul

Thursday 10.23.2014 , Posted by
Pejac Illusory Street Art 1

Spanish street artist Pejac recently took a trip to Istanbul, using his time there to give the city a few new windows (in his own illusory street art style of course). His work fits seamlessly into the local architecture and would probably be missed if they weren’t so interesting and different. While in the ancient city, he created a piece that looks like a keyhole, a gothic arched window, and a tiny window with massive wooden shutters. [Read more...]

emulsifier-rotation

Artist Thomas Medicus hand-painted 160 glass strips to create an anamorphic sculpture/painting which transforms from one image to another as it rotates. From fish to bird, machine to animal, the meticulously crafted piece only gives you a clear view of the painted images from 4 vantage points, leaving all others a jumble of miss-matched pieces. It’s truly special to behold. [Read more...]

While autism impairs an individual’s ability to interact and communicate with others, it doesn’t always stop one from expressing him/herself. In the UK, there is a 5 year old autistic girl named Iris Grace, who is behind her peers in talking, but beyond many adults when it comes to painting. Many people have compared her style to that of Monet and she has already sold some of her work to art collectors all over the world for thousands of dollars! [Read more...]

Rowan Atkinson (aka Mr. Bean) Hilariously Invades Famous Paintings

Wednesday 10.01.2014 , Posted by
Rowan Atkinson Inserted into Famous Paintings 10

It would be just like Mr. Bean to accidentally get his portrait painted by a classic master… and that’s a bit what it looks like here. In his half hilarious/half disturbing series, caricaturist Rodney Pike has been inserting the face of Rowan Atkinson into the works of classic masters. The actor suddenly sports the wig of George Washington (and a knowing look) and then becomes Rembrandt looking rather nonplussed. It’s utterly bizarre and fantastic. [Read more...]

Lorraine Loots has a phenomenal talent for creating paintings so small they’re dwarfed by the tools used to make them. The Cape Town-based artist created these pieces as part of a long running 365-day project, making one new illustration per day in her series “Paintings for Ants”. [Read more...]

Artist Reaches Out and Touches His Hyperrealistic Paintings

Gustavo Silva Nunez 6

Venezuelan artist Gustavo Silva Nuñez paints people so realistically it looks like he can reach out and touch them. In fact, he’s been posting pictures that look just like that. His recent hyperrealistic paintings are an exploration of people in water – swimming, floating, exploding from the surface – with each tiny droplet rendered so believably you would think the canvas was wet. In his whimsical progress shots, Nuñez reaches out, seemingly holding his subjects in place as he puts on the finishing touches. Be sure to check out his fantastic work on Instagram and Facebook.

Talented painter, artist, and muralist Joshua Mays will be working on a series of 4 murals which he calls BEACON and hopes to finish by October 1st, 2014.
