Thanks, Lawrence These Stairs Being the Heart of the Room The design of the stairs not only affects the beauty of the house but also the structure of it. Of course, reasonability should also be taken consideration. Maybe the stairs are the most significant element of the space design. As excellent designers, there is no reason why we cannot do this. How to make the stairs design both practical and beautiful?

Paintings by Vladimir Kush African sonata Vladimir Kush is a contemporary painter of Russian origin, who found an unlimited source of stylistic inspiration within the realm of historic surrealism. Born in Moscow in 1965, Vladimir Kush exhibited his creative nature as a very young boy and at the age of 7, he started attending art classes. He continued pursuing his artistic interest, but at the age of 17 his studies were interrupted by a mandatory military service. Stained glass posters of famous 80s movies 80s Movie Posters is a series of, well, 80s movie posters designed in the style of stained glass windows. Van Orton Design included iconic movies like Robocop, The Terminator, Blade Runner, and Back to the Future. The posters used bold lines as base for the illustration, then topped it with colorful and vibrant colors to give it that signature stained glass look. So now we have the glass windows, who can volunteer to make the rest of the 80s-inspired cathedral? Anyone? Via Design Taxi

Amazing Brushless Graffiti Portraits by David Walker by nathanbweller Wed, 01/26/2011 - 11:41 David Walker uses spray paint to create beautiful graffiti portraits. He works under self-imposed constraints such as "no brushes" and the results are quite stunning. What's more, according to the article that tipped me off to him, he only started painting three years ago! The Painter in Oil An old brush that has been properly cared for is generally better than a new one. It seems to have accommodated itself to your way of painting, and falls in with your peculiarities. It is astonishing how attached you get to your favorite brushes, and how loath you are to finally give them up. What if you have no others to take their places? Don't look upon your brushes as something as few of as possible and which you would not get at all if you could help it. There is nothing which comes nearer to yourself than the brush which carries out your idea in paint.

Modern Classic Paintings British painter Mark Demsteader is fascinated with the human form and classical themes. His latest work focuses on balanced compositions with rough surface textures. One of the oil paintings within post is of actress Emma Watson, and although painted recently, it definitely has an old era vibe. Chan Hwee Chong Makes Spiral Illustrations with a Single Line In one of the most impressive advertising ideas I have ever seen, Singapore-based art director and designer Chan Hwee Chong uses a single long line to create spiral recreations of famous artworks. In an inspired advertising campaign for Faber-Castell, designer Chan Hwee Chong demonstrates his unbelievable talent by creating spiral illustrations inspired by some of the most popular masterpieces in history. Using the above mentioned company’s pens, he starts with a blank canvas, and by drawing a continuous line in a spiral he somehow manages to make detailed reproductions of the famous works of art. The level of precision and control in Chong’s creations is simply amazing, and although I watched a short video of him in action, I’m still not sure how he manages to achieve such detailed reproductions with a single line. via Neatorama Reddit
