Pejac: New Street Pieces - Paris, France

on Facebook

Pejac recently spent some time in Paris, France where he worked his way through a couple of new street pieces including the above piece which is entitled “Ants”.
With his minimalist but clear style, he painted 2 silhouettes of kids being cruel with magnifying glass on what looks like colony of ants. But, instead of burning ants which is always an interesting game to play, these kids are burning little humans. The artist used the texture of raw concrete wall, and painted these little men to look as a realistic colony of ants. Juxtaposed with flat silhouettes of children, the tiny creatures shown with their shadows and in perspective, look very fragile and harmless. The Spanish artist also painted two extra pieces including a surrealistic and amazing door.
Check out more photos of the new pieces after the jump and come back soon for more mural updates from Pejac. This piece can be seen in person @ Avenue de 8 Mai 1945, Vitry-sur-Seine, Paris.

well this is horrifying

No, people you don’t get it. It didn’t just surpass it, IT FUCKING OBLITERATED IT. Browns fundraising has gained just over $50,000, while Wilson’s has EXCEEDED $250,000. There were so many people donating to him, that they had to close the first fundraiser and open a new one, WHICH HAS ALREADY FUCKING EXCEEDED $105,000!!!
The most sickening part, is that Wilson hasn’t even been charged with anything yet and is already on PAID LEAVE from work, so these funds aren’t going toward legal fees or anything. While the Brown fundraiser is struggling to get the support it deserves so that his family can get the legal help THEY NEED, Wilson is LITERALLY BEING PAID AROUND $350,000 FOR MURDERING AN INNOCENT MAN IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.

The Anatomical Work of Nunzio Paci

Artist on tumblr

“My whole work deals with the relationship between man and Nature, in particular with animals and plants. The focus of my observation is body with its mutations. My intention is to explore the infinite possibilities of life, in search of a balance between reality and imagination.”

Xiaojing Yan: Bridge 2009-2013

Facebook

Installation created with 1500 ceramic spoons.

"In my art, every idea travels through the intricate passageway of how I think in Chinese but speak in English. Choosing the right material for my work is like choosing the right word in my vocabulary. For Guan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion, I applied the red threads used to make tassels for Chinese lanterns to a statue I had cast of her, and then, even though she was touching the floor, I suspended her by a wire to show how, in my adopted culture, I am suspended between what I used to be and whatI am becoming.

I use the minimalist concepts and theatricality of my work to expose the intricate layers of my internal world where Chinese culture, training and traditions inspire my work so I can build a bridge of survival, safety and adaptation to the foreign land that molds and informs my work.

I filter Chinese thoughts through English words, English words through Chinese culture, and my images through the concepts of my art - all the while my core sense of Self remains suspended above and between these two worlds.”

Arhitectural Hand Drawings by  Rafael Araujo

When it comes to architectural drawings, computer-aided design software is being used  and due to this, hand-drawn art seems to begin to lose.  The venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo show us that no matter how impressive the technology, nothing can match the expressiveness of hand-drawings.

His series of architectural style drawings entitled ‘Calculation’ are done with pencil and pen and seem to try to give an answer to the question “Is the Universe actually made of math?”. Araujo creates complex fields of three dimensional space where he renders the motion and mathematical brilliance of nature with a pencil, ruler and protractor. The trajectories of a butterfly fly or the logarithmic spirals of shells are beautifully illustrated by Araujo, who`s remarkable skills seem to resurrect the art of hand-drawing.

Araujo`s illustrations appear to be drawn from Da Vinci’s sketchbooks,  showing us that our reality isn`t just described by mathematics, it is mathematics.
