Art in Silhouette (37 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       12 Aug 2010       6607

These incredible photos are all taken in silhouette from around the world. The amazing thing about photos taken in silhouette is that they allow your imagination to fill in what you can’t see. Therefore, one person may see and understand one thing while another person sees and understands something completely different.

You can read books. But you can also cut pictures out of them and then create photos using different figures. This is what photographer Thomas Allen does. His book art is very unusual and unique in its own way.

Artists who create beautiful artworks using pencils can’t surprise us nowadays. But Dalton Ghetti found a way how to create miniature masterpieces using pencils. He simply carved the alphabet on the tips of 26 pencils, making letters come alive.

The fantastic street art in these photos was created by artist Robin Rhode from South Africa. It is absolutely fresh and beautiful. It does beg the question of why graffiti is illegal since it is certainly much better that what was there previously. How can something so fantastic be illegal?

All these illustrations have a serious message to future generations: modern culture doesn’t always rock, and instead of watching a popular blockbuster it’s much better to read a good book. This is the message Dave MacDowell  is trying to carry through his powerful and impressive art. Take a look!

I saw many different installations created using people as “paints”. But American artist Daniel Dancer did much more than this. His art combines latex paints and people to make giant images on the Earth. He sometimes invites over 4,000 volunteers to implement his idea into life. This sky art is stunning!

Chicken wire is used to make fences; they are also called chain-link fences.

But this British-born artist Ivan Lovatt found another use for it, he makes sculptures out of it.

It takes talent and a big imagination to do this :)

Former NASA scientist Kurt Wenner came up with some street art that are some amazing 3D optical illusions. They look so real it is difficult to believe that they were painted. With a person standing next to one of them you would swear that the art next to them as real as they are. The man is a scientist as well as an artistic genius.

Awesome Vexel Art (23 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       12 Apr 2010       13350

Vexel is a neologism for an entirely pixel-based form of raster art that imitates the visual appearance of vector graphics technique, but is distinguished from normal vector graphics or raster images. The word itself is a portmanteau derived from a combination of "vector" and "pixel. Vexel pictures are composed by using multiple layered shapes and can be done using Photoshop, Illustrator, or other graphics editing programs…

How does that saying go “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”? That is certainly the case in these photographs taken in Melbourne, Australia and can be seen from the Geelong Train line. While some people see the artwork as graffiti others see it as art. Some folk want it removed and others want it to stay. This brings up another old saying; “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Where do you come down on this debate?

If You Think These Are Natural Landscapes You Are Wrong (16 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       27 Jan 2010       12916
Artist Matthew Albanese created a “Sugarscape” out of corn syrup, jelly, and twenty pounds of sugar. Although the model may look like scene directly from Antarctica it took the artist over two months to grow the crystals in his studio. He also used such materials as paprika for his Martian landscape, cotton and many others to give this incredible illusion of something real. So if you have ever seen a landscape that you thought looked good enough to eat; now you have seen the real thing. It is truly a work of art.
