Graffiti artist Greg Suits (aka Suitswon) completely nailed the placement of this skull mural in New York’s Greenpoint neighborhood, the giant holes work perfectly as enormous eye sockets. Photos here provided courtesy Raphael Gonzalez.
Since 2003, Australian photographer Murray Fredericks has made at least twenty journeys to the center of Lake Eyre, a desert lake with an extremely high concentration of salt. Fredericks drags all of his equipment out into the barren landscape, capturing the dramatic sky reflected in both the inch-deep water and his rectangular mirror.
”Taken from a Boeing 767-300 cockpit at the precise moment of a lightning flash, the image captures a powerful thunderstorm forming above the Pacific Ocean just south of Panama. A difficult shot considering the turbulent weather and near pitch-dark setting.”
Last Friday afternoon, photographer Nick Ulivieri was on an aerial photoshoot for a client when the helicopter pilot took a long turn out over Lake Michigan so he could better capture the shadow of the Hancock Center. After reviewing his photos later he quickly realized the exaggerated autumn shadow of the skyline looked fantastic when he flipped the photo.
Over the last year, florist Geoffroy Mottart has constructed elaborate plant arrangements in the form of flower crowns and beards that he installs on public monuments around Brussels. The temporary urban interventions titled Fleurissements last only for a day or so before being removed, but it gives the artist enough time to take a few photos which he shares on Instagram.
New York-based artist Paul Louise-Julie has spent the last 7 years researching African civilizations and art, including a year-long journey to West Africa and the Sahara Desert. These sculptures (and 3D paintings) are part of a resulting body of work Louise-Julie created in response to his discoveries and experiences there. The pieces represent a successful collision of artistic methods and themes from multiple cultures, blending ideas from Western contemporary art, traditional African methods, and even Japanese-influenced origami and paper craft. The artworks you see here are among his first sculptures. Louise-Julie is also working on a companion graphic novel that will be released gradually starting later this year. (src. Colossal)
Jonathan Nimerfroh lives on Nantucket, an island 30 miles off the coast of Massachusetts. Jonathan describes himself as “obsessed” with the ocean and when not taking photographs of the swells he can be found riding them in all seasons. When his tiny island gets too small, Jonathan loves to partake in some adventure travel to exotic places - the only requirement being an opportunity to surf. Slurphee waves is a series of photographs that Jonathan captured in Nantucket where waves actually froze up the shoreline for 200 yards out.
Jonathan’s award winning photography has been featured in such publications as The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Stay Wild and Eastern Surf Magazine, as well as appearing on such websites as ESPN, Surfline and Passion Passport.
Ekaterina Panikanova’s third solo show at Sara Zarin Gallery is a proposal of a journey into the domestic space, into the identity and into the body of the potential viewer. As in Dino Campana’s poem Invetriata, the artist communicates the existence of an interior reality which manifests itself in everyday signs that represent disturbing elements. (src.
