    Tatsuya Tanaka reinvents everyday objects in miniature scenes

    It is amazing the gift that the Japanese Tatsuya Tanaka: potato chips that become dunes, a ring binder in which a game of tennis is played, a comb turned into the bridge of a Japanese folklore scene or glasses of pasta that make a bicycle. For Tanaka, any object is a fantastic miniature scene and gives them a new dimension and a new concept, as incredible is the level of detail that gives their small protagonist figures. I find it really incredible, an authentic genius, to work and create on that scale; the result of Tanaka’s compositions is spectacular and the advertising treatment of his captures is really stimulating. The…

    Hyperrealistic paintings of Artic ice against climate change

    The New Yorker artist Zaria Forman uses her immense creative talent to document the devastating effects of climate change using Hyperrealistic paintings. For many years she has produced large format landscape drawings using soft pastel shades. Made with hyperrealistic details, the images are an incredible and moving representation of the majesty of glaciers that, despite their impressive size, are rapidly deteriorating due to global warming. Forman‘s earlier work showed instantly recognizable shapes such as glaciers and icebergs. But now his pictorial approach has changed, essentially reducing the landscape. Forman has spent the last two years traveling with scientific missions from NASA to track the movement of ice. The result is…

    The sensual world of Elena Vizerskaya

    Today, I had the opportunity to see the fantastic work of the digital artist Elena Vizerskaya, better known as KaSSandrA, who contemplates reality from metaphysics, intertwining them in a perfect cohesion. Kassandra studied at the Institute of Art and Design in Kiev, specializing in Environmental Design, in which she has never worked. She started creating his works in 2004, without any commercial intention. In 2009, considered the possibility of selling his photos, and does it in istockphoto, with an unconventional work, but one that gets great acceptance. Her passion for photography and the creation of collages began spontaneously in childhood and became a possibility of self-expression and a way of…

    The peculiar sculptures of John Morris

    The Irish artist John Morris controls different disciplines with an unusual perfection. But his favorite seems to be sculpture. After years of observing the different paradigms of pop culture and constant work, he has managed to make dolls his letter of introduction. Without any type of censorship, his works are between the retailer and the minimalist: Sportsmen, heroines and villains are their most copious production. So I decided to show you a small proof of his interesting work so wherever you see it, be able to recognize it. John was born in Dublin in 1958. He has been painting since the late 1990’s. Recently, he moved back to Dublin ,and…

    The fascinating salt mine of Wieliczka

    In total there are 380 steps of a steep slope to enter the salt mines of Wieliczka, a town that is 14 kilometers from Krakow and that became over time an impressive tourist attraction. There are 2,300 rooms, 250 kilometers of galleries and 9 floors that make the incredible salt mine “Wieliczka” one of the biggest points of interest in Poland. The salt-carved chapels, the sculptures, the underground saline lakes and the numerous vestiges of the exploitation of salt deposits make this mine a unique attraction in the world. Its existence goes back 700 years, when the miners carved chapels, statues, lamps, furniture, altars, among other details and decorations on…

    Breathtaking glaciers illuminated by drones at night

    Photographer Reuben Wu fuses landscape photography with fine art sensibilities to capture earthly scenes using powerful LED lights on a drone. He selectively illuminated Pastoruri, one of the few glaciers left in the tropical parts of South America, and using the night to showcase the blue glacial ice surrounded by sinuous black rock, all against a backdrop of the clear night sky. The pictures are part of the series called Lux Noctis, in which he has photographed other desolate landscapes in a similar way, although with completely different climate conditions. In earlier iterations of Lux Noctis, Wu trekked into the pitch-black desert at night to spotlight rock formations in the…

    Anton Repponen recreates 11 icons of New York

    My first post will be dedicated to Anton Repponen, an interesting visual photographer who makes us understand how architecture has everything to do with context, either as a way to find harmony, or as a reaction against it. But what happens when you take the context of the image? Anton Repponen, a photographer and designer with architectural experience, took 11 of the greatest architectural icons of New York city, from the Empire State Building to the New Whitney (Renzo Piano), in his “Misplaced” photo series, and moved them to deserts and jungles all over the world. In the website of Misplaced Project you can read this: “Eleven New York City…
