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.
Want to know more about this talented artist or maybe want to buy one of his awesome designs? Then check out his site http://www.krop.com/terryfan/
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/
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.
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.
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! 😀
