Vincent van Gogh Gallery - Welcome! Electrifying Photography Robert Buelteman uses high voltage photography Forget the notion of a reverent nature photographer tiptoeing through the woods, camera slung over one shoulder, patiently looking for perfect light. Robert Buelteman works indoors in total darkness, forsaking cameras, lenses, and computers for jumper cables, fiber optics, and 80,000 volts of electricity. This bizarre union of Dr. Buelteman’s technique is an elaborate extension of Kirlian photography (a high-voltage photogram process popular in the late 1930s) and is considered so dangerous and laborious that no one else will attempt it-even if they could get through all the steps. Buelteman begins by painstakingly whittling down flowers, leaves, sprigs, and twigs with a scalpel until they’re translucent. Because there’s no lens to distort the colors, Buelteman’s work replicates natural hues far better than traditional photographs. Via Wired

Gustav Courbet : History of Erotic Art Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) was an Austrian artist from Vienna who was one of the pioneers of Symbolism and Art Nouveau who is best known for his paintings though was also an incredibly prolific draftsman. "All art is erotic" — Gustav Klimt We usually use self portraits of the artists on ErotiCart, however Klimt famously has no self portrait and is popularly quoted saying "I have never painted a self-portrait. I am less interested in myself as a subject for a painting than I am in other people, above all women...There is nothing special about me. Gustav Klimt was one of the founding members of the Vienna Secession, a group of Austrian artists who had resigned from the Association of Austrian Artists in protest of their restrictive attitudes towards art. Klimt, as well as many other artists, left the Secession in 1905 due to an ongoing dispute with the Naturalist within the Vienna Secession, who refused to let go of the realist influence in their art.

Andy Goldsworthy Digital Catalogue: Home Arthur Ganson's Machines / Kinetic Sculpture Keith Haring - 193 Artworks, Bio & Shows on Artsy Bridging the gap between the art world and the street, Keith Haring rose to prominence in the early 1980s with his graffiti drawings made in the subways and on the sidewalks of New York City. Combining the appeal of cartoons with the raw energy of Art Brut artists like Jean DuBuffet, Haring developed a distinct pop-graffiti aesthetic centered on fluid, bold outlines against a dense, rhythmic overspread of imagery like that of babies, barking dogs, flying saucers, hearts, and Mickey Mouse. In his subway drawings and murals, Haring explored themes of exploitation, subjugation, drug abuse, and rising fears of nuclear holocaust, which became increasingly apocalyptic after his AIDS diagnosis. Alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf, and Jenny Holzer, Haring is regarded as a leading figure in New York East Village Art scene in the 1970s and '80s.
