If art could be described as Quirky-Beautiful, this would be it! I would certainly say I am a fan of Mr. Terry Fan! 🙂 Based in Toronto, Canada his work is a blend of traditional and digital – ink, graphite and photoshop. If you like these, then a selection of his work can be purchased at Society6 as archival art prints, framed prints, stationary cards, iPhone cases and laptop/iPhone skins.

S’More Creative 3D paintings!

This French artist known as Shaka creates highly engaging and creative 3D paintings!

He creates the 3D effect by first sculpting shapes directly onto the canvas, then he covers them with layers of paint…..The end results are high impact, emotive images that seem to almost reach right out the canvas to touch you! 😀

If you want to learn more about Shaka you can visit his website *it is in French though! 🙂  http://www.shaka1.fr/

Amazing 3D Fish Paintings!!

I was blown away by these fantastic 3D paintings done by Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori.

Each 3D painting consists of multiple transparent layers, formed by pouring liquid resin into wooden containers. When each layer becomes solid it is painted. By repeating this process, the artist is able to create beautiful lifelike designs.

Fancy a quick trip around the Solar System for 2012?

Happy New Year 2012!

As we wish 2011 a fond farewell & zoom into 2012, how about we take a virtual tour of the Solar System to see just how our planet spent its year spinning around the sun…

Check out this fun, interactive 3D Solar System (nice visuals & of course the sound track in the background is awesomely treky!) HA! 😀 – Enjoy

Awesomely Fun – Talk about bringing music to life! :D

Seriously if you have a few minutes to spare or just want to have some ‘clean’ internet fun :)….then Seaquence is an uber fun interactive site where you can create and see your music in action! It is an experiment in musical composition, adopting a biological metaphor. Compositions can be saved by clicking ‘share’, which can then be sent to others allowing them to hear what you’ve made.

Seaquence is an original Gray Area Labs project created by Ryan Alexander, Gabriel Dunne, and Daniel Massey, with support from Gray Area Foundation for the Arts.

All Star Animators Recreate the Entire Ocean Online

Truly ‘global’! Not only the content but also the creation of this amazing project. Top animators from Avatar and Tron, the director of MIT’s Media Lab have partnered with Wemo Media and other high profile activists to try to re-create the entire ocean ecosystem in an online 3D environment called theBlu!

This integration of artist /developer submissions is part social network and part educational tool. It is meant to be an interactive world where people can explore, learn and create online! 😀

The Art of Time.

Artist Dominic Wilcox’s series of miniature time-based sculptures add yet another fun dimension to what would normally be considered the mundane.

His series of seven sculptures, features tiny, hand-crafted figures attached to the watch hands. The scenes on the watch hands come to life in their movement around the dial.

Above: Watch sweeper. “The numbers and hands of a watch are swept away by a watch sweeper.”
