A bit of brain stimulation by way of brilliant three dimensional street art . . .
We’re completely blown away by Pakayla Biehn‘s paintings derived from double exposure photography. The San Francisco-based artist collaborates with several photographers, produces double exposure photographs as inspiration, and then paints the images using oil on canvas in the most realistic, detailed, and ethereal way. Honestly impressive and incredibly beautiful . . .
Ryan & Sheri Killackey have created this stunning time lapse film, composed of over 10,000 photographs, of our Golden State. The imagery is breathtaking – especially paired with the music by The Cinematic Orchestra, one of my all time favorite bands.
JONDO is out to democratize art and it’s WTF brilliant. The brains behind this printing company have created 26 museum-quality canvas prints and distributed them throughout 5 hidden Los Angeles locations for people to simply take. No strings attached. Just track down the clues via Facebook and figure out a way to cart home a 40″ x 60″ work of art . . . while “supplies” still last, of course. Happy heisting, LA!
Artist Mark Hall Patch‘s watercolors of compulsory garments are now available for purchase on Etsy. I wonder if he accepts custom orders because I’d really like to send him a photo of my grandmother’s denim and floral patchwork shirt from the 70s. It was my absolute favorite and would make for the perfect piece of art!
If you look closely, you’ll notice that these 3 dimensional sculptures are made from hundreds of thousands of Crayola crayons! Artist Herb Williams, who is one of the few individuals who has an account with Crayola (WTF!), wanted to raise awareness through sculpture for the wildfires that have recently ravaged the state of Texas. Unwanted Visitor: Portrait Of Wildfire consists of 5 five swirling flames, which over time would melt and change shape due to weather conditions. The project is display till the end of the year in Lubbock, Texas at the National Ranching Heritage Center.
