Picturesque of Green Tsunami from Moravia

This is the edge of the meadow forests, vineyards and fertile fields. This land, once bore the name of Great Moravia, famous for its rich history and folklore traditions, and became the trademark green fields, stretching beyond the horizon. It is not surprising that this wonderful region of cultivated vineyards, blossoming orchards and fertile fields became the object of Polish art photographers – Marek Kiedrowski and Krystof Brovko. These Polish photographers are great masters of landscape photography. Impressive Graffiti by Shok 1.

With her technique, she makes it clear that craftsmanship is as important to her as to any painter of the Renaissance. The finished work is an alchemical combination of warm saturated colours, tactile brushwork, curvaceous lines, highlights and lowlights cloyingly seep into your vision, operating with enjoyable kitsch.

What starts out as a single shape or line blossoms into magnificent mushroom-jellyfish hybrids, feeding my affinity for all things under the sea! Her artwork has been so perfectly described as “colorful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines (which) are at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi, crafty and fantastic.” With each piece she tries to “create an intimate world that posesses its own ethos and its own emotional range.”

In the year since the Museum of Art and Design reopened in its new digs on Columbus Circle, they've been delivering consistently compelling shows--from punk-rock lace to radical knitting experiments.

Everything but the Paper Cut: Eye-popping Ways Artists Use Paper

The newest, "Slash: Paper Under the Knife", opened last weekend and runs through April 4, 2010. The focus is paper--and the way contemporary artists have used paper itself as a medium, whether by cutting, tearing, burning, or shredding. In all, the show features 50 artists and a dozen installations made just for the show, including Andreas Kocks's Paperwork #701G (in the Beginning), seen above.

Ethereal Digital Paintings Capture The Look Of Loneliness

Variations of glittered deformations form the basis for a grotesquely beautiful motif in the works of Japanese artist 非(xhxix). Digitally sketching, drawing, and painting everything using Photoshop alone, 非 visualizes loneliness in his subjects and decorates them with scars, layers of geometric abstractions and floral imagery. As most of his subjects are young men, the artist explains that “boys are more suitable to express loneliness as women are emotional and powerful.” Concocting images of isolated pain and an ethereal sadness into haunting depictions of young western men, 非 reveals a mystified insight into the depths of the Japanese psyche. - StumbleUpon.

I've spent the last couple of days wondering what to post to close out the year and then came across this entry on (run by my good friend Catalin Marin): his twelve favourite shots from 2009, one from each month.

Happy New Year" - StumbleUpon

So, with credit to Catalin for the idea, here are my twelve favourites for the preceding year. Had I selected images from the year as a whole I suspect that there would be a couple of changes, and I also suspect that some of you would make different choices from each month, but when I looked back through the images I'd posted this year these are the ones that gave me most pleasure to produce. As always, let me know what you think. On a different matter: don't forget that there are just a few days left in which to snap up a 15% discount on our Photoshop tutorials.

From his Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection of 1992 to his final runway presentation, which took place after his death in February 2010, Mr. McQueen challenged and expanded the understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity. His iconic designs constitute the work of an artist whose medium of expression was fashion. The exhibition featured approximately one hundred ensembles and seventy accessories from Mr. - StumbleUpon.

Natural Pools or Swimming Ponds - StumbleUpon

Chemical-free water garden and swimming pool. The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water’s surface. The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regeneration zone and back into the swimming area. The aquatic plants filter out contaminants and use nutrients from the water as food which helps prevent algae. Then rocks, such as granite river rock or haydite, to which friendly bacteria attach, act as biological filters. There are many options as to design. A gradual slope contains the plants, gravel and loamy sand, a wall keeps them separate from the swimming area. Vacuum but twice a year and tend to the plants as needed.
