If your first thought was “It’s a photo” then you’re totally wrong. These are hyper realistic oil paintings created by Belgium based artist Christiane Vleugels. At the age of twelve, Christiane studied the academy of fine arts and was educated in the art of drawing and sculpting by the inspiring artist Herman Cornelis. Wonderful, stunning and simply beautiful paintings. Each of them unveils a certain aspect of life and inspires people to dream.

Looping Bridge


Looping-Bridge02 Looping-Bridge01

Adnan Alagic, Bojan Kanlic and Amila Hrustic won the competition for the design of the looping bridge five years ago while studying at the Academy of Fine Arts. Called ‘Festina Lente’, which in Latin means ‘make haste, slowly’, the looping bridge spans 38 metres over the Miljacka river and loops-the-loop in the middle to create a shelter with two seats. ‘The basic idea of the bridge is the union of the secular and spiritual,’ explain the designers. ‘The loop on the bridge is a symbolic gate,’ they add.

Ester Stocker’s Gallery Work.


Esther Stocker, born 1974 in Silandro, Italy, graduated in 1999 from the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. Stocker’s work oscillates between the exactitudes of formal minimalism and the ambiguities of abstraction. She builds deviations, optical breaks and hurdles, which simultaneously open-up and withhold the complex systems inherent in her thoroughly architectural forms.
