This is just wonderful to look at. The order of the portraits has been chosen very carefully. This mix of art has become a piece of art itself!
This is quite disturbing. Who has time for this? Well, the people from Pixeloo.
This seems to have nothing to with cosmetics, but should be viewed as a cool art project.
Here is a very nice collection of digital art. I refrain from using the verb ‘Photoshopped’, because this implies that photo manipulation can only be done with that one program by Adobe. Let’s just call it ‘photo manipulation’…
Even though the picture below totally looks like an illustration, it is actually a photo! It is made with a technique called HDRI, or High Dynamic Range Image. The colours, the composition, the objects, it all just seems too perfect and orchestrated to be real. However, if you check the photo out on its highest resolution (which is very high!) you’ll see and believe it actually is a photo.
More here, of user Heiwa4126 at Flickr.
The pic below is featured on this mysterious site. Reminds a bit of Banksy. It is really great when artists use their talents not for self-promotion and riches, but for trying to spread some awareness in the world. Artists like this will perhaps one day be known be known as the true artists of this age, the ones that saw that art today should no longer be put on a pedestal for the art elite to chatter about and make deals with. We live in an age of cold awakening, with the possibility to really see what’s going on. But do you want to see?
We are so over flooded with brilliantly created imagery every day, that to stand out with our art nowadays, is very much about being able stop time for a moment, and move the viewer with a thought that confronts him/her almost personally with some very real current issues in the real world. Because we’re so used to seeing people die, through war, floods and starvation, it is a true art to be able to get people have another look at it.
A nicely lit and photographed collection of cool designer (and not-so-designer) toys on Flickr! Should I mention Jeff Pidgeon works at Pixar? Nah, that’s totally irrelevant info clutter. It’s the toys that matter!
This little artist is only three years old! What will this little boy make when he’s six? Or twelve? What will he be doing when he’s thirty? Let’s hope his life will turn out well for the benefit of (his) art 😉
