      Post links to any visual art you find interesting/inspiring!

      I can't draw/paint myself, but I often come across amazing artwork online.
      I'll start with this collection of satirical illustrations by Pawel Kuczynski:

      Thank you for this thread - not least, because I found out, the link in my sig doesn't work! Now it does - and here once more:

      http://www.dreamviews.com/artists-co...ng-artist.html

      Spoiler for uups - forgot that with bare chested art, but it's really chaste - Pre-Raphaelite - and on here already:




      'The Virgin Queen'
      His pictures are acrylic on solids, he uses a special technique to achieve the plastic impression and he draws inspiration from lucid dreaming.
      Wonderful!

      I love Jeremiah Morelli's digital paintings.
      In the FAQ, he says that he completes most pictures within 8-12 hours!

      "Young Korean artist JeeYoung Lee recently presented her beautiful, surrealistic and Photoshop-free photography exhibition named "Stage of Mind". The magic happens in the artist's small 3.6 x 4.1 x 2.4 meter studio in Seoul. The artist builds these highly dramatic, psychedelic and visually intense scenes herself, ensuring that every teeny tiny detail is hauntingly perfect and leaves the viewer in awe.

      JeeYoung Lee works with such precision that the creation of a set often takes weeks or even months of work. As soon as the otherworldly sets are done, the artist incorporates herself in them in various different ways and takes these stunning self-portraits.

      According to the artist herself, all of the photography sets and her specific roles in them tell a particular story about her personal life experiences or resurrect traditional Korean fables or other cultural heritage from around the world. Her work is a deep self-reflection for the artist and a means to explore her psychological identity."

      Heey - I know Jee Young Lee!
      Great photographs!

      Oleg Oprisco is a brilliantly talented photographer from Lviv, Ukraine, who creates stunning surreal images of elegant women in fairy-tale or dream-like settings. There’s one significant difference, however, that sets him apart from other artists who create similar work – Oprisco shoots using old-school film photography.

      The fact that he shoots with film means that everything you see in these photos had to be created that way – it couldn’t be done digitally. “I’ve found it ideal to do everything myself. I come up with a concept, create the clothing, choose the location and direct the hair and makeup,” Oprisco explained in an interview with Bored Panda. “Before shooting, I plan the overall color scheme. According to the chosen palette, I select clothes, props, location, etc, making sure that all of it plays within a single color range.” He uses Kiev 6C and Kiev 88 cameras with medium-format film and a variety of lenses.

      It’s clear that Oprisco is deeply passionate about his work. “Each of my photos is a scene from real life. That is the perfect source of inspiration for me as there is so much beauty to it.” Oprisco offered some inspiring advice for aspiring young photographers mixed in with some tough love as well. “Drop your job and shoot … if you feel that’s what you want,” he said. “Freedom, happiness, money… all will come after you let go and just shoot.”

      Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin | Colossal

      Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, itís such an odd process that results in something thatís both a painting and sculptural. Wonderful.

      Oh no, it's not my work! The artist doesn't mention their name that I can see. It's a user from Reddit who was featured in an article called 'Man Digitally Recreates His Dreams.'

      My own craft is filmmaking... I have no artistic skill when it comes to still images, unfortunately.

      It's not primarily art - I like the boundaries where maths, science and art connect. But it has some pure art as well!

      Beautiful Dreamer!!

      When Mandelbrot held his first print of the set named after him in his hands - he hadn't only birthed a whole new branch of mathematics - chaos theory - he gave a huge present to uncountable artists playing with his and similar equations!!

      Now to somebody I really adore: Strontium Tree Part One | The Artwork of Andy Thomas



      It was hard to decide where to put the magnifying glass and screen-shot - I just gave up and clicked. So I can only warmly recommend to go play with his creations yourselves, people, there are many small surprises!

      I think I might have an idea for you - you can pick up such a dandelion and spray it with hairspray, a strong one - and it conserves them!!
      Maybe I make a picture with a fresh one later - but I still have one from two years back - full of dust, though, and it was a whole arrangement, where stuff is missing by now:



      To be hung up upside down for a while, and the stalk needs some stabilisation later on - like inserting a wire.
      A friend of mine from Latvia had a great hobby for a while, when suffering from "painter's block". Might sound weird, but he collected trash from behind flowershops, dried and modified and arranged. Huge arrangements, some of them. One of the shops noticed it and then their trash was locked away, so he started searching other trash for material as well - hehe - that's what artistic passion does to you - hanging head first in the trashcan with a torch between the teeth - of course I joined him on some of his nightly raids...
      Adventure is hard to come by after all - and it's truly amazing what people throw away, too - esp. around x-mas!
      I needed to search for photographs - but what he did was art in my eyes - not just decorative exercises. And he had told me that he kept wishing to be able to conserve a dandelion as a boy at the side. My was I proud when I brought him one!



      Also beautiful pictures OneUp - we are no longer aloohoone!! This one especially:



      For pictures from my pc I use a free photobucket account to upload by the way - just insert the img code here and you'll have them big...

      If I don't put these particular Dalton Ghetti's pencil carvings I wouldn't feel 'inspired'...

      How about this for purple-headedness?



      Courtesy IAmCoder - he posted the artist next door: JB: Justin Bonnet – Digital Artist


      This is a great McKenna quote - not all are, but this one is:

      We have to stop CONSUMING our culture. We have to CREATE culture. DON’T watch TV, DON’T read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your OWN roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are — NOW — is the most immediate sector of your universe. And if you’re worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered. You’re giving it all away to ICONS. Icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that, you want to dress like X or have lips like Y… This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion. What is real is you, and your friends, your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And, we are told No, you’re unimportant, you’re peripheral — get a degree, get a job, get a this, get that, and then you’re a player. You don’t even want to play that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.
      It comes up when you click the artist's page, that's why I bring it in...
      Couldn't agree more - I don't even own a TV (husband does in his bedroom, but it's only in use for movies or HBO series for example).
      I believe by the way, that we do that here - create culture - for example by contributing to this thread!

      I wanted to check up Juroara's pictures for a long time, having found out she made her avatars and sigs herself. And now I did - and I really want to show some of them in here - I find them soo lovely, all of them - I really do!
      Cindy De Jesus: sci-fi, fantasy, visionary















      Not "only" lovely - they are technically great - I wish her as much popularity and success as she wishes for herself - you go Juroara!!
      And I'd like to dream her creatures one fine day!
