BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning - Photographer I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.. Now its time for KOREA, TAIWAN AND TOKYO.

Sagaki Keita | Colossal - StumbleUpon (click images for detail) Artist Sagaki Keita was born in 1984 and lives and works in Tokyo. His densely composited pen and ink illustrations contain thousands of whimsical characters that are drawn almost completely improvised. I am dumbstruck looking at these and love the wacky juxtaposition of fine art and notebook doodles. See more of his work here, and be sure to click the images above for more detail. Thanks Sagaki for sharing your work with Colossal!

sidewalk chalk guy sidewalk chalk guy «« back to gprime.net all material copyrighted by its original creator | The Longest Photographic Exposures in History - The Latest - itchy i The tremendous popularity of this article with more than half a million (!) clicks in one month inspired me to contact the artist Michael Wesely himself. I felt there were questions by readers which I couldn't answer correctly without talking to Michael. And I also wanted to tell him how much his worked was loved and how many people saw it as an inspiration for their own works and lives. From the many comments I learned, that many of you were astonished by the beauty of the images but also by the technical aspects of their making. But Michael confirmed that he indeed created continuous, uninterrupted exposures over those long periods of time. Michael Wesely, Palast der Republik, Berlin (28.6.2006 - 19.12.2008), © Michael Wesely, Michael wanted to highlight that he also sees those lines as an indicator for something else. His works were truly a hard and long labour of love. It took Michael months and months of experimenting to make sure the negatives weren't going to be over-exposed.

Painting Intoxicated at 100 MPH (10 pieces) - My Modern Metropolis - StumbleUpon It's almost as if Alexandra Pacula paints what she sees while driving drunk at 100 mph. "My work investigates a world of visual intoxication; it captures moments of enchantment, which are associated with urban nightlife," says the New York-based artist born in Poland. "I am fascinated by the ambiance of the city at night and its seductive qualities. The breathtaking turbulence of speeding vehicles and hasty pedestrians evoke feelings of wonder and disorientation. Pacula paints with oil to recreate the feeling of dizziness and confusion. "I suggest motion in order to slow down the scene and capture the fleeting moments, which tend to be forgotten," she says.

Wicked Samurai Skateboarders (12 total) - My Modern Metropolis - StumbleUpon Inspired by a recent trip to Kyoto, Japan, San Francisco based painter Ferris Plock decided to cleverly mashup samurais and skateboarders in his new series, Rest for the Wicked. This new collection embodies the artist's trademark character-based works along with a Ukiyo-e inspired sensibility. Ukiyo-e, or Japanese woodblock prints, is one of the most universally known of all Japanese arts. Produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries, ukiyo-e translates to "floating world" in English and often featured images of a world of transient pleasures and freedom, like in theatre, pleasure quarters and travel. Fock used a variety of media such as acrylic, gouache, gold leaf, and spray paint on wood panel to create his art. The Shooting Gallery
