Surrealism lives on, and it turns out, it even flourishes. The author is James Jean who fit all of his biography into a line “b. 1979 – “. This is probably to support his status of surrealism artist. His works can be defined like that: I haven’t a clue what the artist wanted to say, but it’s witty. Most of the paintings were made using acrylic. And it’s a good idea, as it made James’s works even more mysterious and out of this world.
The author of these great illustrations is Amy Sol, she’s a talented girl from Korea. She herself defines the style she works in as a mix of folk-art and manga. To make the pictures less rough, she adds some vintage. The pictures are made on wood with acrylics and oil. This genre is becoming more and more popular.
We once had a post about the sad ends of cartoon characters. But you can’t always guess what happened to them by their skeletons. And there are some other versions, why they stopped appearing in our TVs with new exciting adventures, although they didn’t disappear altogether (you can still download the cartoons).
Body paintings again. But now they are permanent. I’m talking about tattoos. The term is from Polinesian language and means “drawing”. The word has been introduced to English language in 1773 by a traveller James Cooke. Before this a tattoo was a means of decoration in Europe and didn’t have a separate name. Today it’s a special kind of art with its own gurus, galleries and exhibitions.
If you look at watercolors by Moira Hahn, you’ll never believe that she is an American artist who lives in Los-Angeles and graduated from the Boston School of Arts. All her works are filled with Japanese spirit, but not the simple and old one. Here you’ll see blue Godzillas, surfer cats, and traditional Dalmatians getting water from a well to suppress a fire.
Those who are familiar with Linkin Park and Fort Minor, know that the group’s creator, musician and second vocalist Mike Shinoda likes painting. And not only painting, but painting in his own special style, and besides, he has a degree in art. He’s already had his own exhibition, and this time we suggest you look at his guitars, there is something special in them – they have been painted by Shinoda himself. Enjoy watching.
For anime lovers I gathered animated avatars over the Interner. I’m not going to post much, I think 30 per news will be enough, and there’s going to be space for adding more here. So I’ll be posting them in small portions. All avatars are 100*100, you can download them by right-clicking on the avatar and selecting Save object as. The rest of the animated avatars is in the full news.
I don’t think there are any more sincere and clear works than a chid’s painting. I don’t know why but I really wanted to add some children’s pictures to the site, they have so much of it, and it is so pure. Remembering myself, I can’t draw at all, but how proud I was of a cat I drew and an incredibly right angle of the house. But my teacher could not believe I drew such a line by myself, and gave me a C. I still remember how offended I was
China, a mysterious country where all the appliances and electronics come from, the country where the Sun rises the earliest, and a true Chinese citizen hasn’t been to bed yet, a country where having multiple children is punished by law, and also a country where everybody wants to go. Here is traditional Chinese painting, without Photoshop.
Sometimes it seems that pure painting is totally on the outside as a type of art. Or at least that it exists somewhere deep in the past. An artist Katya Zarinskaya defies such negative statements with her work. Her creativity is an eternal search for harmony between the beauty of the world and the person. And I think Katya has managed to find this harmony that fills her paintings. And she also added to it the harmony of forgetting and the feeling of dance.
Magical cartoons by Stuart Green load you with very kind positive. You’ll definitely like them. Some cartoons have a whole story behind them. For example, Gerald and his blue cat. From giving the cat as a birthday present for Gerald to joint flights. And here they are so smile! Say “cheeeeeese”!
Cartoon pictures in the style of Happy Tree Friends. I don’t know how big the army of fans of this cartoon is, but for some reason people like such cartoons. A variation on the topic of violent cartoons all over the world from an artist Ana Bagayan. Those of you who are tender people, beware!
Simply brilliant idea from a designer and illustrator Eduardo Sarmiento. If it weren’t for the freedom of speech and self-expression, he could have gotten a lot of haters for his sharp words. The Church would definitely not understand this irony. Besides the cynical humour, I really liked the detail that was present at each picture that had legs in it. Those were the almighty Converse Shoes
This funny style doesn’t have a name yet, but as such pictures are adored by emo kids, I think we can call it emo style in graphics. Evgeny Artsebasov works as a designer in a small company, and in his spare time he draws such funny little guys and monsters. A person should be doing what he can do best. And you’ll agree, that it’s Evgeny’s gift to draw in emo style. You HAVE to watch that. Pleeeeease
Layers of acrylic paint, gouache, and crayons that have been converted into computer graphics with the help of a good old Photoshop. Those pictures could easily go great with children’s tales. The artist’s name is Vicky Jones. Vicky says that inspiration comes from her childhood memories, tales and cartoons. The pictures are so much alive, that they give you the feeling of childhood and magic.
It’s very rare to meet an artist that “lives” in the Internet and will all the availability of computer drawing means continues to create on paper. Laurie Lipton is one example of those. All she uses for work are coal, pencil and paper. And those paintings are full and finished creations. Their content is a little scary. Laurie has about two hundred of such pictures in her portfolio. You should definitely visit her website. But turn down the volume
I love such cartoons. They are sooo cute ))) You have to look at thise pictures. I could die of adoration. Pink Ipod and smiling sandwiches are something. Let’s not forget about the author, Kasy. The links to her gallery are written on some pictures. By the way, the first picture is called “pikachuemofinal”. We decided to rename it into Picachu’s gene mutations
Aaron is both a musician and an artist, which is natural for very talented people. The style of his paintings is peculiar. This person remotly reminds of another musician-artist (a little by the style of drawing) – Mike Shinoda. A few heroes on the painting you will undoubtedly adore. I’d also like to mention Aaron’s official website separately. His flash-website is constructed in a very interesting way. Amazing!
I would like to show the development of art in 19-20th centuries in the European countries. In it, from my point of you, there’s full reflection of how quickly the world changed at that time. Those pictures are not very much alike, but they make a full visualization of that time only when they are together.
Every decent emo-kid knows the teddy-bears, as they represent something romantic and sweet.
13-14 B.C. (1280 – 1368)
In the end of the 13th century China was occupied by Mongols, and for almost a century Yuan dynasty ruled the country. Cultural heritage was severely damaged again: palaces and temples were burned, art collections were robbed. But some masterpieces of Chinese art have lived till now.
First prototype of an air brush was created in 1978. The inventor, Abner Piler, used it to create his paintings. Today air brushing is very popular, and not only on cars. Skateboards, snowboards and bikes also get their own picture. A special painting is very useful for demonstrating one’s uniqueness.
First 9 paintings are made by an artist P.Levin in tXstudio and Airbrushingstudio companies.
Anime avatars. Usually such avatars are sought after by devoted anime fans, but even those who saw them accidentally have trouble refusing such and avatar.
Illustration in the style of Dexter’s Laboratory. And I don’t think this similarity is accidental. A Spanish artist Alex Fito writes and draws illustrations to the children’s comics. But lately Alex Fito has been working on his new comic book and drawing political caricatures for a local newspaper.
