To say Nikolai Aldunin is a master of miniatures, would be an understatement. His work leaves me speechless and that is why I decided to share it with you. Master Microminiature Aldunin Nikolai was born September 1, 1956 in the village of South Lamovatka Voroshilovgradskoy area. From his childhood he fell in love with metallurgy. Growing up he dived deeper and deeper into metal and it’s [ Continue Reading ]

01 Lepard Matutinal 324x400 Nick Lepard  Face to Face

To this young artist a portrait is not a representation of somebody since it only portraits a mere moment of a person that exists through time, however, Nick Lepard definitely has the ability to intrigue a viewer with his raw portraits. He gained notoriety in Vancouver with his large-scale self-portraits and portraits of friends. Born in 1983, this Vancouver artist accomplished his first solo exhibition fresh out of school in 2008 at the Diane Farris Gallery, a gallery that has been representing Lepard since the summer of 2006 when he had his first group exhibition.

Have you ever wondered what happens to all those buses that nobody uses or are considered too old and unsafe for school use? Wonder no more. Apparently they all go to Panama! Unused and unwanted buses end up in Panama and are then converted into public transportation vehicles for urban areas. If that were the end of the story, one might say “That’s nice. They help out the less fortunate.”  This is much more than that. This is riding in style. Call it: Pimp My Ride: Panama City Edition. These neglected and worn down vehicles are ” fantastically refashioned” with designs and imagery painted on all available surfaces by  veteran artists and newbies alike. Horns, thumping music, [ Continue Reading ]

Think you need to use a brush to create a beautiful painting?  Think again.  Leonid Afremov has mastered the art of using just oil paint and a palette knife to manifest a visual explosion of color in his landscape and cityscape paintings.  His unique technique adds a depth and richness that seem to morph geometric and organic lines into a vibration that breathes electricity into his paintings.  [ Continue Reading ]

rudolph and clarice Vixen to Rudolph: Fame is Sexy

The image above was taken from the Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass’s 1964 classic film  ”Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. You may have heard it before.  The doe ( female deer) with the long lashes and pretty bow is actually named Clarice and is not Vixen at all, as the title of this particular blog suggests, but thats really besides the point. While this classic which was inspired by the poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” and the coloring book “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, has a good message and a happy ending, it is the song that is sung, which has no relation in particular to the movie, that I have issue with.

mandrill nichols 674208 ga No Pictures Please!: Grasping Photography

The power of photography: It’s been written about  here before. It has also been written how much one picture can convey with just a still frame. No one understands this better than National Geographic whose pictures alone warrant it a “best magazine ever” title even if it is I who just now arbitrarily bestowed it. The image above of a Mandrill – a monkey-like creature with tangerine eyes, accompanied an article in the March 2001 issue and was also its cover story. [ Continue Reading ]
