Grain & Gram — The New Gentleman's Journal / Blair Sligar, Woodworker “My name is Blair Sligar and I build furniture and sculpturefrom salvaged and local materials.” lair’s own words are concise, functional, and to the point. All things that you find in his work. Talking with Blair and seeing him among the wood and tools artfully thrown throughout his shop, somehow it all makes sense. The way he walks around his shop, you see a comfort in stride and step, and that comfort comes from his ability and the freedom he gives himself to “make whatever he wants.” Built to be used, loved, cherished, and kept, all of Blair’s pieces have an old-world sturdiness that you rarely see in today’s all to frequent buy-destroy-repurchase cycle. 13 Young Latina Artists Changing The Contemporary Art Landscape When family tales are passed from generation to generation with no single point of origin, when history fails to document years of pain and struggle, when personal identity becomes too complex to describe in a single sitting, when memory and imagination mingle in the land of dreams, this is where art comes in very handy.

free online paint program Flame Painter Gallery Flame Painter is a unique paint program, it belongs to my 'I am an Artist' experimental project. I think with tools which inspires you, everyone can be an artist. You can try it here, change different brush settings and paint your own flame paintings. When you change the background from black to white, the palette changes from additive to subtractive and the feeling of the painting is very different. It's not easy to explain all brush parameters, so I leave this for your experimentation.
Immense paper cut tapestries by Tomoko Shioyasu (click for detail) Japanese artist Tomoko Shioyasu was born in Osaka in 1981 and majored in sculpture at the Kyoto City University of Arts. Her immense floor-to-ceiling tapestries are meticulously cut by hand from enormous sheets of paper using utility knives and soldering irons.

Pencil Tip Micro Sculptures Pencil Tip Micro Sculptures Dalton Ghetti creates awesomely stunning miniature sculptures on pencil tips! Mind blown! Morgan Herrin Madeline von Foerster by okmarzo April 21, 2014 "Executed in the oil and egg tempera mische technique developed by the Flemish Masters, these paintings allude to Renaissance sources in both method and style.
