Nowadays it may be challenging for some of us to let go of our cellphones, tablets or desktop computers, even for brief moments. But if we were in the presence of scenic views like the ones shown here, we’d probably enjoy moments without Wi-Fi connections. These gorgeous photos were captured in various European countries by...

American artist Tony Mancia sometimes spends 10 hours custom designing a tattoo for a client. It takes some thought to come up with interesting compositions such as fusing late Gothic and Renaissance cathedrals with portraits of women. His passion for architecture is apparent as he includes details like the quatrefoils (four leaf-clover frameworks) and rose windows...

Warning: This post contains images with nudity. Viewer discretion is advised. The delicate interplay of light and shadow is at work in the quietly provocative watercolours of artist Keinyo White. The way he manages to bring his subjects to life with the softest touch of the brush is a joy to behold. The depth and...

The desire to bring out the strangeness in the everyday is what drives South Korean painter Kim Byungkwan to make art. This manifests itself in off-kilter portraits where the normal features of a human face are washed away with a series of wild brushstrokes. Colour is another important driving force behind his work, as each...

The delicate, pastel-tinted illustrations of Irish artist Denise Nestor are a joy to behold. Her speciality lies in rendering celebrity portraits in light colours and hand drawn pencil, as you can clearly see on this page. Her portrait of Joaquin Phoenix for “The New Review” and of J-Dilla for “This Greedy Pig” bear testament to her...

Just recently OK Go launched “The Writing’s on the Wall,” an incredible anamorphic-art music video which was seen by 10 million viewers. And now Apple has realized perspective illusion is cool and has also done something similar within large white rooms, just more minimalistic, polished, calmer. Maybe they should have done it outdoors or someplace...

In 2013, Polish directors Kijek/Adamski used 2000 PVC cutouts to make a video for Japanese singer Shugo Tokumaru, and now they are at it again! They laser-cut metal sheets to create hundreds of shapes (trees, computers, bridges…), painted and aligned one-by-one for a promotional animated film for Curtin University. My favorite part of the sequence...

If we are not thinking about the macabre aspect of a sword penetrating the body of a bird, we may actually appreciate Alexander Grim’s tattoo art. There is beauty in the way he composes an engraving-style bird upside down on an arm, or a snake swaying up a client’s stomach. There is an Asian art...

Living and working out of Oakland, California, visual artist Brendan Monroe weaves a magical spell in his work. His layout is minimal, wonderfully understated, but his subjects are surreal and complex with blob men in all the colours of the spectrum. No one does a better abstract blob than Monroe. Rooted in science and human...

There are a lot of people fascinated with owls, who collect them in all sorts of ways from crystal figurines to wood sculptures. And then there are many of us who just like birds in general and would love to strap on some wings and fly somewhere cool. The closest we can get is sitting...

Barcelona-based artist Giselle Vitali has perfected a great style of anatomical illustrations. Her drawings literally get under the skin of her subjects. We see the pink muscles pulse and the bright blue veins running through these bodies like rivers. It is her use of colour and humour that really catches the eye, and her work ends...

elaborate patterns; an illustration by yukai du

Warning: This post contains a video with violent content. Viewer discretion is advised.

Chinese illustrator Yukai Du is finalizing a short animated movie titled, “Way Out,” based on Sherry Turkle’s book “Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other.” You can see a few animated GIFs from the film on this page. Another project related with technology taking over our lives, is, “Invasion,” which is shown in the image at top; “people rely on their mobile phones, pads and laptops increasingly, this series was trying to narrative [sic] the abnormal relationships between developed technology and humans,” she points out.
