    Sam Youkilis and his photographs play with our perception

    I love traveling and try to do it every chance I got. In this case, Sam Youkilis, a New Yorker photographer traveled through South America, from Bogota to Buenos Aires by bus.

    David Cata and his hands are the “Horizontes”

    Spanish artist David Cata sews landscapes on his hands, into the skin of his palm, creating art that is both intriguing and squeamish in his series, ‘Horizontes’, or horizons. The series does not deal with themes of self-harm; rather, “with changes, the confrontation with the past and the uncertainty of the future”. Cata’s choice of art is determined by visuals that bear personal significance to him: a lover not yet roused from sleep, a piano, a lighthouse, a snowy mountain, and the ocean. All in his hands. The unconventional series works as a type of journal for Cata, who explains that the landscapes are a part of him. They will…

    Ivan Aivazovsky and the fascinating force of the sea

    “The sea is my life“. Ivan Aivazovsky (1817 – 1900) was a Russian who was always in love with the sea. His paintings speak of the infinite ocean. From a calm sea off the coast, to a sea raging in the middle of a storm. From the serenity of a beach at night to the despair of a battle on the high seas. One of the most beautiful features of the sea is that it is never the same. It is a mysterious, vast and solitary mass of water that changes with every light, with every wind. We can contemplate it with a deep blue color on a summer day…

    Philip Barlow shows us what is to be miope

    If we have never needed glasses in our lives, we probably are not even aware of how little or how many people see the world, due to myopia, astigmatism, and others. I have myopia, but not much, really. The South African painter Philip Barlow has created a series of hyperrealistic paintings that show how short-sighted people see without glasses everything that surrounds them. We can barely make out the shapes in the paintings at first glance, everything looks blurry. But every short-sighted person will agree that this is the world when you take off your glasses. That uncomfortable feeling of being on the beach, getting out of the water, and…
