Unbelievable Seascapes painted by Zaria Forman The inspiration for Zaria’s drawings began in early childhood when she traveled with her family throughout several of the world’s most remote landscapes, which were the subject of her mother’s fine art photography. Her work exhibits extensively in galleries and venues throughout the United States and overseas. In addition to exhibitions, recent projects include a series of drawings that served as the set design for the classic ballet Giselle, which premiered in October 2012 at the Grand Theatre of Geneva, Switzerland. Ten of her drawings were also used in the set design for House of Cards, a Netflix TV series directed by David Fincher and starring Kevin Spacey. In August 2012 she led Chasing the Light, an expedition sailing up the NW coast of Greenland, retracing the 1869 journey of American painter William Bradford and documenting the rapidly changing arctic landscape.

How to cut glass I posted a picture about 1 week ago on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter of me cutting glass using just string. I got LOT’S of requests for a tutorial on how I DID THIS! So here it is. FINALLY! I want to warn you. It’s best to triple your yarn because it will burn longer! Soak it GOOD! I like to tie my yarn where I want my glass to “cut” then quickly pour polish remover over the string again. Get a big bowl with ice and water ready. VERY IMPORTANT! Slowly turn your bottle. You can’t let the flame go OUT then dunk it in the ice water. YAY!!! I reallly hope you enjoyed this tutorial because I had ALOT of requests for it! © Copyright jaderbombllc, All rights Reserved.

Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin First: watch the video. Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it’s such an odd process that results in something that’s both a painting and sculptural. Wonderful.

New Surreal Oil Paintings That Subvert Vintage Vacation Photos and Historical Landscapes by Paco Pomet “Adam’s Office” (2016), oil on canvas, 120 x 160 cm Spanish artist Paco Pomet (previously) references the appearance of vintage vacation photos and vast historical landscapes in his surreal oil paintings, works that offer a subtle humor from their often grayscale palette. By rendering limbs as freakishly elongated tubes and adding touches of neon green and orange, Pomet brings his images of the past into the future, hinting at a post-apocalyptic realm where humans are forced to live beside the radioactive waste that has lead to their bodies’ defects. Pomet had his third solo exhibition with Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica earlier this summer. You can see more of his work on his portfolio site. “Childhood” (2016), oil on canvas, 60 x 80 cm “The Visitor” (2016), oil on canvas, 120 x 140 cm “The Vermilion Case” (2016), oil on canvas, 60 x 80 “Social” (2016), diptych, oil on canvas, 120 x 180 cm “The Landlord” (2016), oil on canvas, 120 x 140 cm
