Inspiration sometimes takes on amazing and very unusual forms - sometimes eccentric, sometimes unpredictable, sometimes majestic. In this compilation we want to introduce you to the most unusual and original artists, in our opinion. So, get acquainted.
Pictures ... tulle!
English artist Benjamin Shine (Benjamin Shine) is a portrait painter, and in the portraits of celebrities he creates, at first glance, there is nothing unusual. But this is at first glance, but at second glance it turns out that his surprisingly realistic portraiture is made with the help of an ordinary iron, which the artist makes “strokes” along thin strips of tulle, which is sewn to the canvas, and thanks to the use of such an unusual aerial material, the artist’s paintings look like a magical cloud.
By the way, the master does not use paint in full. The first unusual portrait that brought him fame, Benjamin Shine made (for the word he wrote to us seems not quite appropriate in this case) in 2008. And it was a portrait of Barack Obama.
The artist cut the flag into thin strips and created from it a blue-white-red portrait, which the Museum of Art and Design was very interested in, which later brought Schein fame.
Masterpieces ballpoint pen!
Andrey Poletaev is a self-taught artist from Lugansk, who creates masterpieces with an ordinary ballpoint pen. His paintings are incredible. The author spends on average up to 300 hours for one work, which is technically complex and worked out to the smallest detail.
Under the hour, creating one drawing, the artist imposes up to 20 layers of monochrome ink. Andrei Poletaev draws cityscapes, portraits of ordinary citizens and celebrities. In his drawings, the everyday moments of city life find a special, enchanting beauty.
"In a cellophane film" - hyper-realistic canvases by an Australian artist
Pictures of Robin Eli from the city of Adelaide in South Australia are almost impossible to distinguish from photos. The artist paints his paintings with oil paints on large canvases, “dressing” his models in plastic wrap, in a fantastic way passing all the folds of this material on the human body.
Over each work, the master works for about 5 weeks, and looking at his works, it is hard to believe that this is not an artistic photo. In order to distinguish a portrait from a photo and notice brush strokes, you need to look very carefully. It seems that the film in which the models are dressed can be touched with a hand is so realistic.
Body Art "Under Black Light"
American John Poppleton his works radically change the idea of the genre of body art in which he works. A talented artist and photographer creates his fabulous landscapes on naked female bodies. The artist paints his drawings on the skin, using fluorescent paint, and then photographs his work.
As a result, viewers can see the flash of lightning, the greatness of waterfalls, fantastic sunsets, the majestic starry sky and the magnetic northern lights. And let the artist's “pictures” be short-lived, because they can last only a few hours, the magic that they carry in themselves remains for a long time in the memory of the audience.
In addition, there are many photos taken by the author.
"Street art 2.0" in the Amazonian jungle
French artist Philippe Esharu creates his unique work with a digital projector and computer.
When creating his own unique project “Street-art 2.0”, the artist used the Amazon jungle as a canvas, and instead of spray cans with paint - computer and lighting technologies. The artist himself believes that the main advantage of his works is that they in no way spoil the walls of buildings and mountain projections, which he uses to create his “paintings”.
While working on his project, he photographed the faces of the representatives of the Brazilian people Surui and with their help created fantastic, unique installations in the night forest. Thanks to the brilliant artist, the forests of the Amazon have literally acquired a human face.
