The hero that the subway needs.. 13 Disturbing Works of Art by Female Artists After we posted 13 Disturbing Pieces of Art from History , several readers pointed out that none of the works were created by female artists. So, here are 13 more disturbing pieces of art, and they’re all created by women. 1. Artemesia Gentileschi - Judith and her Maidservant The most remarked-upon absence from the previous list was Artemesia Gentileschi’s version of Judith Slaying Holofernes (as opposed to the Caravaggio, Judith Beheading Holofernes , that we featured). Feel free to click on each and decide which you prefer! 2. One of the greatest painters of the 20th century, Mexico’s own Frida Kahlo is most notable for her self-portraits. 3. This particular painting is not so much creepy as it is bizarre. 4. Rosa Bonheur was one of the great painters of the French animalier style popular in the 19th century. 5. A far more modern piece than previous entries on the list, this painting was only created just under a decade ago, in 2003. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.
Eric Daigh – Unconventional Mosaic Art | Artaic | Custom Mosaic Design and Fabrication For our fifth installment of our ongoing series “Unconventional Mosaic Art” we’re focusing on artist Eric Daigh. Daigh uses thousands of pushpins to create portraits, and more recently everyday objects such as kitchen knives or car door handles. From Things I See The beauty of Daigh’s work is his amazing ability to work with such a limited palette of colored pins to create intricate images with such depth and complexity. This is Daigh’s statement from his website: Using push pins, the innocuous, adhesive, near-detritus of our everyday Eric creates the view from here. As we pull back one quotidian reference morphs into another, objects become portraits, the pedestrian becomes sublime. from "if it's hip, it's here" Daigh’s work creates fascinating imagery out of mundane objects that wouldn’t normally get a second glance – and that is why we love the art of mosaic – many little, otherwise insignificant pieces come together to become something great.

Rubén Belloso Adorna We’ve all had our eyes fooled by artists with photorealistic techniques such as Pedro Campos’ picture perfect oil paintings, Paul Cadden’s hyperrealistic pencil drawings, Samuel Silva’s ballpoint pen drawing, and Nathan Welsh’s city paintings, but never before had we seen it done with chalk…until now! Rubén Belloso Adorna of Seville, Spain creates enormous portraits that are so detailed, you would not believe they are not photographs, but they are actually drawings made with chalk pastels. You can see the true magnitude of each drawing when you see the photos of Adorna working on them, yet even when you zoom in and look closely they still look like a high definition photo.

Hand Painting Illusions by Annie Ralli EmailEmail London-based photographer Ray Massey teamed up with a talented body painter Annie Ralli to transform hands into architecture, sport scenes and other deceiving objects. These incredible hand illusions are a part of advertising campaign for Ecclesiastical Insurance, a niche insurance company using the byline “You’re in good hands”. Annie says that body painting is meticulous work which needs to be carried out at speed because paint is less stable on a living, moving base. Nevertheless, she finds the work fun and the results beautiful. “Bodypainting is a skill I perfected working with stills photographers,” says Annie, who is also a former BBC scenic artist. Her impressive hand paintings reminds me of the work of Guido Daniele who also turns hands into architecture, animals or anything you could imagine. Website: annieralli.com
Explosive Diahhrea Explosive Diahhrea The Ryan's Steakhouse Storyby Anonymous Funniest darn thing that has ever happened to me. A couple of weeks ago we decided to cruise out to Ryan's Steakhouse for dinner. It was a Wednesday night, which means that macaroni and beef was on the hot bar, indeed the only night of the week that it is served. We went through the line and placed our orders for the all-you-can-eat hot bar then sat down as far away from the front of the restaurant as possible in order to keep the density of kids down a bit. I had not really been feeling well all day, what with a bit of gas and such. Unfortunately, that was not to be. I went to the normal stall. For those women who may be reading this, let me take a moment to explain "The Move." I was about halfway into "The Move" when I looked down at the floor and saw a pile of vomit that had been previously expelled by one of those little bastards attending kids night. But remember, I was only halfway down on the toilet at that moment.
