Belgian artist Raphael Vicenzi caught our eye recently with some of his amazing illustrations.  From the water colors, to the splashes of graffiti, the composition of his unique works of art are beautifully striking to say the least.  Check the method.

Located in Brussels, Belgium, Nemo 33 is the deepest indoor swimming pool in the world, with a maximum depth of 34.5 metres (113 ft). Numerous underwater windows allow outside visitors to look into the pools at various depths. There are two large flat-bottomed areas reaching depth levels of 5m (16 ft) and 10m (32 ft), and a large circular pit plunging to a distance of 33m (108 ft). At the 10m mark are also featured several simulated underwater caves. Nemo 33 was designed by Belgian expert diver John Beernaerts as a multi-purpose diving instruction, recreational, and film production complex.

Rolls-Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II


01

Turkish automotive designer Ugur Sahin has recently presented his own version of the Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe. The main goal of this design was to respectfully reinterpret the original Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe I, which was built in Belgium by Henri Jonckheere and his son Joseph Jonckheere in 1935. What has remained from that company is currently manufacturing bodies for cars and buses. They’ve asked Ugur Sahin to give a new appearance to their most appreciated project. Infusing a new look to a 77-year-old car is not an easy thing to do but Ugur Sahin pulled it off with a redesigned massive front grill and revised round doors that pay tribute to the original model. At the back it adopts similar bold styling with just a few subtle changes that don’t change the car’s stance and main proportions. Currently Ugur Sahin is negotiating with potential investors and parties who are interested to become involved in the project in order to build an exclusive “One-Off” car which is destined to give its owner the ultimate feeling of luxury.

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.

2012 Light Festival – Ghent, Belgium.


Just like fireworks, originally used in celebrations to reach up to and greet the spirits in the sky, this LED-light cathedral aimed very, very high.  We’re not sure if it was visible from space (or higher) but it certainly glowed brightly.  More than half-a-million people were drawn to the Luminaire De Cagna LED-light display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. Luminaire De Cagna became the main attraction of the Festival that included more than 30 other displays and exhibitions.  Constructed of wood, covered with 55,000 LED lights and reaching 28 meters (92 ft.) into the sky above Belfortstraat, the Romanesque cathedral-like Luminaire De Cagna used only 20 kWh of energy.  Luminaire De Cagna is an Italian family business that has created light displays since 1930. They started with oil and carbine lights, moved on to electric and, since 2006, have used LED-lights exclusively.
