3-D Is The Next Wave In Tattoo Design Perhaps 3-D is best suited to the grotesque. As anyone who's seen Jackass 3D knows, it can be the gross, the unpleasant, and the visually painful that ultimately become the most visceral when given the 3-D treatment. Italian tattoo studio Lippo Tattoo seems to take that side: The studio creates mock 3-D tattoos using shadows and perspectives, and the most affecting of them are sort of ... grisly. Lippo Tattoo uses one particular technique where the skin appears to be peeling like wallpaper that can reveal something almost Magritte-esque, like a blue sky with fluffy white clouds or something more anatomically accurate (yet still shocking) like blood and raw flesh.
The True Inner Beauty of Fishes | Science The skills that make a good biologist are not unlike those that make a good artist. “A desire to understand detail, you focus on how things work. These things are qualities that good poets and good biologists share,” says Adam Summers, a biologist at the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Labs and consultant on Finding Nemo. Summers draws on his talents as a biologist and a photographer for “Cleared: the Art of Science,”an exhibition now at the Seattle Aquarium.

onirico o narrativo
o universo em cada olhar Há muito tempo procuramos relações que nos leve a entender nossa existência. Procurar sentido em tudo o que nos cerca, fez da humanidade uma espécie obcecada por padrões. Buscar padrões é a resposta natural de nossa mente a um fato simples que nos desagrada: o desconhecimento. Nosso cérebro não gosta de "não saber".
The Monster Engine: Children’s Drawings Painted Realistically Dave Devries takes sketches of monsters drawn by children purely from their imagination and renders them realistically giving them a truly devilish look. His collection of drawings and paintings form a 48-page book “The Monster Engine”. Devries would project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, and then faithfully trace each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, he then paint the image as realistically as he can using primarily acrylic, airbrush, and colored pencil.

Nas fotos, os peixes de Ryusuke Fukahori são bonitos, mas se você puder ver um de seus aquários ao vivo poderá tomar um susto ou ficar de queixo caído. Perceberá que não são peixes de verdade, mas pinturas fascinantes que ganham vida pelas mãos deste extraordinário artista japonês. © Ryusuke Fukahori (foto de Dominic Alves). Três períodos foram de grande importância na vida de Fukahori: 1973, quando veio ao mundo, na província japonesa de Aichi; 1995, quando se graduou pela Aichi Prefectual University of Fine Arts and Music; e, finalmente, 2000, quando, ao passar por uma crise sobre sua visão artística, buscou inspiração no que seria a fonte de grande inspiração: o peixinho dourado que possuía há mais de 7 anos. Desde então, tornaram-se inseparáveis na vida e no trabalho. Ryusuke Fukahori e seus peixes dourados

Alex Grey and the Sacred Mirrors series featured on http://hyperallergic.com/ …Elsewhere, Alex Grey’s series of mixed-media paintings, “Sacred Mirrors” (1980), whose four tableaux feature complex compositions, appears to ruminate on the theme of where the human soul — that old, romantic-spiritual thing — might fit into a high-tech future that is already here today. Artist Alex Grey’s “Sacred Mirrors” series of paintings, left to right: “Material World” (1985–86), lead silhouette and leaded, etched mirrors; “Psychic Energy System” (1980), acrylic on linen; “Spiritual Energy System” (1981), acrylic on canvas; and “Universal Mind Lattice” (1981), acrylic on canvas (collection of the artist, photo by Dan Meyers) Looking at Grey’s paintings and other works on display, Hoffberger said, “Given the way technology is moving, do we want to become like machines?

Irving Harper: Works in Paper – Sight Unseen 02.07.13 — By Jill Singer To say Irving Harper once worked in the office of George Nelson is kind of like saying Hillary Clinton once worked in the office of Barack Obama — Harper’s contributions were almost too many to count. He worked under Nelson for 17 years and was responsible for some of the studio’s — and design history’s — most famous works, including the Marshmallow sofa and Herman Miller’s still-current logo. Rizzoli recently published a book on Harper, but it wasn’t to set the record straight about who did what (there’s long been controversy over Nelson receiving credit for things that were actually authored by Harper.) No, the book, Irving Harper: Works in Paper , reveals Harper’s even more secret life: the intricate paper sculptures he began constructing in his Westchester County home way back in 1963 and which he continued to make until about 10 years ago, when, he says, he ran out of room to display them.

When Moebius (aka French comic artist Jean Giraud) passed away in March, fans mourned the loss of his voice--er, pen--which had been so influential in sci-fi visual culture. Filmmaker Ridley Scott summed Giraud’s influence nicely last year: “You see it everywhere, it runs through so much you can’t get away from it.” But many more were completely unaware of Moebius, whose works remain largely in French, despite his work on films like The Fifth Element and Tron (to say nothing of his own prolific bibliography). 8 | 56 Pages Of Brutal Beauty From Moebius And A Legendary Filmmaker
