Sculptures Popping Out of Paintings Oh, to have been in Tokyo in June! Shintaro Ohata just finished up a solo exhibition at the Yukari Art Contemprary in Tokyo, Japan. This Hiroshima, Japan-born artist is known for his ability to show us everyday life in a cinematic way. He captures light in his paintings, showering the world, as we know it, with carefully placed strokes of it. "Every ordinary scenery in our daily lives, such as the rising sun, the beauty of a sunset or a glittering road paved with asphalt on a rainy night, becomes something irreplaceable if we think we wouldn’t be able to see them anymore," he told Yukari gallery. "I am creating works to capture lights in our everyday life and record them in the painting.”
products The Puzzleboard by OOOMS can be used in more ways than one: each board can be used on its own as a cutting board or serving plate, or put some boards together and you have super-sized your workspace. It’s ideal for cutting those long baguettes! But the best thing is that any wineglass can be fitted into the blank spot of a board. Using the boards at parties allows guests to enjoy both wine & delicacies, while still having one hand free to greet other friends.

The Surrealism of Skin: Photorealistic Pencil Drawings by Ileana Hunter « Art Installations Ileana Hunter’s passion is drawing portraits of famous faces in a highly realistic style. She uses a variety of different pencils to create her drawings, ranging from hard pencils that create a light tone to soft lead pencils that creates rich, dark tones. The majority of Hunter’s models are female, including actresses like Scarlett Johansson and deceased singer Amy Winehouse. Using a photograph as reference, Hunter sketches and then shades her drawings, carefully copying the highlights, gradients and shadows of the photograph to create photorealistic drawings. “Photorealistic” means drawing or painting a picture that looks like a photograph but isn’t. It is a style that is tricky to achieve as it requires a lot of time and patience and doesn’t allow the artist to use expressive brushstrokes or pencil lines in the art work.
carnovsky RGB Color est e pluribus unus RGB is a work about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”. RGB designs create surfaces that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus.
