Charlie Layton - Drawings on the Fridge Charlie Layton – a freelance designer and illustrator from Philadelphia, USA. Each week, he draws on his refrigerator easily erasable marker. His creations Charlie every week puts on Facebook under the name “Frosty Friday”. On the creation of each of these “marker masterpieces” Charlie takes about 20-30 minutes, and it usually ends with a cup of coffee Friday morning. That’s right, dear, magnets on the refrigerator no longer in vogue. Marker drawings – that the trend of the season! Brooding Cityscapes Painted with Oils by Jeremy Mann San Francisco-based artist Jeremy Mann executes these sublime, moody cityscapes using oil paints. To create each work he relies on a wide range of techniques including surface staining, the use of solvents to wipe away paint, and the application of broad, gritty marks with an ink brayer. The resulting paintings are dark and atmospheric, urban streets seemingly drenched in rain and mystery. Mann’s work is in no way limited to cityscapes, he also paints the human figure, still lifes, and landscapes.

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.

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. Alex Russell Flint Madeline von Foerster by okmarzo April 21, 2014 "Executed in the oil and egg tempera mische technique developed by the Flemish Masters, these paintings allude to Renaissance sources in both method and style. A strong influence from the School of Fontainebleau loans an aura of mystery and otherworldliness to the artworks. The paintings often resemble Wunderkammern – Enlightenment era “cabinets of curiosities,” where the wonders of nature were collected and displayed. Most Stunning Art Installations in 2013 Out of all the different types of art forms we write about on a daily basis, there's one that clearly stands apart from the rest - installation. According to Merriam-Webster, an installation is defined as "a work of art that usually consists of multiple components often in mixed media and that is exhibited in a usually large space in an arrangement specified by the artist." Why do we love installation art? For many reasons. First, it's oftentimes immersive, providing visitors with a multi-sensory experience. Next, it's site-specific, meaning that piece of art was built for that particular time and space.
