Hey so I did my first Gallery display about this time last year and haven’t had the chance to post it up until now, what with college and jazz. Feel free to leave any advice…
So what the deal with the big 3D craze? yeah I don’t get it either, much alike everyone else who reads this blog with the exception of a blind “viewer” or two, I see things in 3D, like everyday, sometime if I walk into these 3D object it even feel like they are solid. So now we have accomplice the fact that seeing things in 3D is no real big feet, is it really worth wasting on extra euro (or dollar/pound) to watch a movie? And while we are asking that, why is the idea of a picture being in 3D that much impressive to your standard 2D pictures?
I will tell you why 3D is so big, because of artist like; Nagai Hideyuki. So what Nagai Hideyuki does that makes him so remarkable, is creates small imaginative figures, that’s drawn is such a realistic and skillful manner that’s makes them appear in 3D, when viewed from that right angle, very similar to that chalk artists Julian Beever, So if you like and wanna check out more of Hideyuki’s art, you can find it at; http://nagaihideyukiart.jimdo.com/gallery/
So if I told you that after all those years of getting childish tigers and pale ghost face-paintings splashed across your face, that it was actually possible to recreate a work of unquestionable art in its stead, what you say? I do agree that silly face painting IS a waste of money, although the idea of face-painting was not wasted on Andy Alcala who took the consept to the next level.
I am sure if this talent was acquired by a massive insecurity of Andy Alcala as he wished to hide his true face behind beautiful works of art, or if he had a uncontrollable urge to wear make up and cancelled out this odd fetish with this peculiar method of face-painting, there is no denying that the end result is very impressive. Anyways to check out his tumbler page or spy on more of his pictures you find him at this link; http://www.andyalcala.com/
If someone where to ask we that i would spend the past hour looking at a clothing website called Allen Solly, I would have laughed, as most of my shopping is done at shady market places, hey don’t call me crusty (that’s the irish term for hippy) it’s just hat i am into, HOWEVER i did find this amazing web site that’s sells clothes. Although it’s not the clothes that strike me as much as the unique style of photography they use to display their merchandise.
So if you see anything u like it can all be brought online @ http://www.allensolly.com/brandsite/ or if you wanna check out some more cool modeling pictures I am sure they are to be found either on their site or at google images.
I know what your thinking, Mr Brainwash, sounds like a cheesy late 50’s horror film gone wrong (I don’t really know why late 50’s but it makes me sound like I know what I am talking about) Mr Brainwash who is formally known as Thierry Guetta, LA Film maker and pop artist shocked viewers at his Life is Beautiful exhibition back in 2008 and has been doing so ever since.
Mr Brainwash, who started his art career as a journalist, as he documented street art all over, soon became inspired not only to create the ultimate Street Art documentary, but to pick up a spray can as well and dabble his hand in art.
With many accomplices under his belt, such as designing the cover to madonnas greatest hits CD “Celebration”, Guetta has become a ledgend in the Art world
When I say I have only showed you a fraction of what Mr Brainwash is capable of on this post, trust me there is much more, so check out http://www.mrbrainwash.com/home.html
I am sure that you are all familiar with the movie “She’s the Man” (if not go, NOW, and buy it) Well I decided to draw a small poster and a mash-up between “Shes the Man” and “Harry Potter”, where Ginny joins the mens Quidditch team and meets the handsome seeker Harry who is under the impression that shes a MAN.
So a few months ago I was shopping about tesco (for you americans its kinda like mal-wart but the quality of products IS EVEN WORSE), looking for cheap alcohol, and in the shopping centre I came across an art exhibition, headlining polish and irish art (I think the polish rugby team was playing us that week). So not yet drunk I decided to go in and give the place a look, most of the art there was standard, like paintings of boats and stuff, which don’t get me wrong were painted fantastically, but doesn’t really spark much of an interest for me.
What I did find however was airbrushed paintings created by the “evolve airbrush studio” there is not much I can tell you about these guys asides from the obvious, like their method of painting is to airbrush their paper using stencils and spray caned colours, that help create a space like scenery. I am not sure if these guys are just starting up but their was not much of their work to be found on the internet, they so however have a Facebook page, so unless you where live during World War 1 (the “Great” War, how a war can be characterised as great is beyond me, but I will save that for another time”, or use eircom (nobody outside of Ireland is going to appreciate that joke but I am going to put it in their always) you can find them at this link, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Evolve-Airbrush-Studio/117668281693981 (Don’t forget to like, or not I don’t really care)
