Pin-up Art from The Pin-up Files [Marcus Gray Image Gallery] : A Marcus Gray (b.1971) "I want to express the experience of what it is for a woman to wear latex, feel aroused, feel sensual, dangerous and beautiful ... these women know the power of their sexuality and the profound effect it has over men." Born in 1971 in Glasgow, Scotland, Marcus Gray was brought up on a rich diet of Sci-fi TV, films and comics. On technique and influences, Marcus says: "People ask how I Achieve the results that appear in my works. "Recently I've started using gold leaf mostly because I adore the breathtaking work of Gustav Klimt. "There's darkness and light, pleasure and pain in everyone's life.

Pablo Amaringo Vault Pablo César Amaringo Shuna was born in Puerto Libertad in the Peruvian Amazon. He was ten years old when he first took ayahuasca. Raised in extreme poverty, for a short time Pablo hand-painted counterfeit banknotes, ultimately spending ten months in jails and a Pucallpa prison for his crime. In 1977, responding to a magical conflict he'd been having with a sorcerer, Pablo abandoned his vocation as a shaman. Pablo occasionally spoke about his life as a shaman and artist, and provided art instruction, at seminars and conferences outside of Peru. Before he passed away, Pablo was working on paintings of angels, as well as paintings that documented the flora and fauna of the Amazon.

the largest gallery in the world Dream Worlds Revealed On Canvas Along with some magnificent dreams, Jacek Yerka finds inspiration for his masterful paintings from his childhood memories: the places, remembered feelings and smells of 1950′s Poland. He studied fine art and graphic design before becoming a full time artist in 1980… and we’re glad he did. His paintings will take you through incredible worlds of imagination, bending reality in captivating and clever ways fit to inspire a novel or film.

Index - The art of Steven Stahlberg HowToMakeAlmostAnything2010-Hiro Tanaka 2-1: my former (past) works While my final project is for making "Natural" Plants move and walk, I am also interested in "Artificial" Plants-like Object. (I don't know why but in general Architects are interested in plants. In my opinion, there are some commonalities between architecture(buildings) and plants...) LAST YEAR, I made "L-system-based Fractral Tree" in FabLabJapan(Beta). This project was exhibited at SFC ORF 2009 and ICC (NTT Intercommunication Center) in 2010. 2-2: Design Code, Design Tools For this project, my students and I implemented two design softwares- The one is called "Modular Designer" and the other is "(L-system) Assembly Simulator" "Modular Designer" (by using Processing) Java Applet called "modudesign" - sliders, creating PDF file "(L-system) Assembly Simulator" (by using Grasshopper) Grasshopper XML ORSF_grasshopper (this script was folked from Milana Dabic's "3D-Lsystems" ( 2-3: Construction Kit Part I

index.htm Ferrofluids Go Next Level Technicolor In Fabian Oefner's Amazing Images A ferrofluid is a magnetized liquid that creates all manner of bizarre patterns that look like the surface of a distant planet’s moon. Because of that, they’ve been featured in a ton of videos and artworks lately, but so far these have mainly been black and white, with maybe some silver thrown in to add a bit of pizzaz. But photographer Fabian Oefner is breaking with this monochromatic tradition by throwing water colors into the mix and bringing in some much-needed luminosity in his series Millefiori. Oefner’s alchemical magic is created by mixing a ferrofluid with water colors in a magnetic field. The field causes the iron particles in the ferrofluid to lose their minds and start to rearrange themselves to form the black channels you see below, while the colors are injected into it using a syringe.

The Art of Paul Kuczynski Take a look at some paintings by artist, Paul Kuczynski. More after the jump. PAUL LASAINE MIT Researchers: make big things out of small, interlocking 3D printed composite components For the most part the size of an object that’s 3D printed can’t be larger than the build volume of the printer; the only exceptions are printers that can print onto existing objects, so a printed object could be repositioned in a way that allows the printer to continue printing onto it. For this reason, size constraints are a limiting factor with the entire industry of 3D printing. The common sense solution for bigger parts is to build bigger printers, and some have gone that route, but common sense will take us only so far. When Neil Gershenfeld, director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, addresses the problem of going bigger, his wisdom says go small. By 3D printing lots of small pieces that can be combined, Gershenfeld and Kenneth Cheung built a composite material that’s up to 10 times stiffer than existing ultralight materials. The technology combines fiber composites, porous materials, and 3D printing to answer the question of “Can you 3D print an airplane?” Source: MIT

Arthur Hacker Arthur Hacker was born in London, the son of Edward Hacker, the line engraver. He went to the RA Schools before studying in Paris under Leon Bonnat, who was internationally famous as a portrait painter and a lifelong friend of Degas. Bonnat was the ideal teacher for Hacker who became a fashionable portrait painter himself. His early work consisted of genre and historical scenes, such as The Waters of Babylon and The Annunciation which was brought by the Chantrey Bequest in 1892. (Source: Adrian Vincent, A Companion to Victorian and Edwardian Artists) Contemporary Articles'Arthur Hacker ARA', Marion Hepworth Dixon, The Lady's Realm, 1902 Burial at Brookwood The inscription underneath the bronze plaque on Arthur Hacker's gravestone (see the photos opposite) reads: The quotation Peace Peace... is taken from Percy Bysshe Shelley's Adonais: An Elegy on the Death of John Keats.
