18-Year-Old Creates Surreal Artworks to Express Emotions - My Modern Met
Growing up can be a challenge, especially in the teenage years. Some people use writing or art as a creative outlet for all the emotions they keep inside. Sebastian Eriksson is an 18-year-old up-and-coming surrealist artist living in Sweden. Not only is his artwork amazing, it's extremely thought-provoking as he adds descriptions of how his pieces relate to his life. For instance, in the piece above, he states: "This is another paradox that I've been working on for a couple of days. It describes a person with psychological problems such as schizophrenia, insanity, depression or other mental problems. And for the piece immediately below: "One day I felt like I was lost and I had too much things to think about. We've all felt like Sebastian, but most of us do not have the talent to draw how we feel. Self-portrait of the artist Sebastian Eriksson's website

Big Doodle Big sharpie doodle! Big Doodle - sharpie on mat board - 40" x 32" Artwork © Lawrence Yang 2009 my blog | my site | purchase inquiries Rajacenna Draws Celebrity Portraits Rajacenna is an 18-year-old self-taught artist from the Netherlands who draws the most realistic portraits I have ever seen, using only pencils. I’m a big fan of realistic drawings, and I’ve previously featured amazing works like the pencil drawings of Paul Lung, the ballpoint pen portraits of Juan Francisco Casas, or Cristina Penescu’s detailed scratchboard masterpieces, but at only 18 years of age Rajacenna is in a league of her own. Born in 1993, she started modelling for various Dutch companies when she was only 4, and at 5 years old she made her first appearance on television. She starred in films, soap-operas and tv-series and at 12 she became the host of Kinderjournaal, the first Dutch web-tv for kids. She only took up drawing in 2009, and although she had never taken any art classes she produced some stunning pieces. Reddit

30 Amazing Stanley Kubrick Cinemagraphs Stanley Kubrick was devoted to images, telling his stories as visually as possible. His images have an arresting power that few if any other directors can match. Dublin-based film critic Paul Lynch may have summed it up best speaking on A Clockwork Orange: With colour, Kubrick found an alacrity and an arrest in his images that began to transcend the subject material of his stories…Those widescreen shots seem to push the natural boundaries of the screen, to absorb every photon of light. Kubrick wanted to do to his audiences what he did to Alex in A Clockwork Orange: to peel back our eyelids until we are forced to see every beam from the projector.

Playfully Adorable Illustrations That Will Make You Smile - My Modern Met Kuala Lampur, Malaysia-based artist Lim Heng Swee loves to doodle. With a bright attitude towards life, he creates adorable illustrations that are playfully paired with funny phrases and word puns. He brings ordinary objects like sheets of paper, pieces of fruit, and pairs of pants alive with personality. Things that don't usually go well together become perfect pairs with good intentions, bright smiles, and sweet sentiments. The clean and modern designs merge colorful shapes with bright, solid backgrounds. The simple illustrations are intended to communicate distinctly positive concepts of hope, love, and good humor.

Spontaneous Human Combustion Spontaneous Human Combustion Spontaneous human combustion is the alleged burning of a person's body without a readily apparent, identifiable external source of ignition. The combustion may result in simple burns and blisters to the skin, smoking, or a complete incineration of the body. A Cathedral Made from 55,000 LED Lights The Luminarie De Cagna is an imposing cathedral-like structure that was recently on display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. The festival was host to almost 30 exhibitions including plenty of 3D projection mapping, fields of luminous flowers, and a glowing phone booth aquarium, however with 55,000 LEDs and towering 28 meters high the Luminarie De Cagna seems to have stolen the show.
