Just A Little Taste Of ‘Deadpool 2’.


Earlier today, we got the unexpected arrival of the first trailer for Deadpool 2. Now, an official website has been launched which seemong reveals that the sequel’s title is actually The Untitled Deadpool Sequel. Of course, it’s possible that this is just how it’s being referred to by the studio until the actual name of the movie is revealed but the way it’s being used here indicates otherwise. Bear in mind that previous material for the movie has also referred to it as Deadpool 2 and The Untitled Deadpool Sequel is the sort of weird, meta title you would expect a quirly release like this to have. I guess we’ll have to wait and see but talking of weird stuff, how about a new synopsis that reveals some fresh details about the movie? Er, yeah, this one probably isn’t what you’re hoping for then.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

When it comes to photo-realistic painting, life-like works of art, or pieces that suspend disbelief, Andreas Englund’s “The Life Of A Superhero” collection stands in a class of its own.  It’s almost needless to say that his talent with a paintbrush is incredible given his style of art, but his ability to tell the story of an entire life with his works is even better.  Check the method below.

Clinto De Menezes


Clinto De Menezes is a multi-disciplinary artist working in a range of mediums that include installation, painting, drawing and photography. Growing up in the industrialised and mined landscapes of South Africa much of his work is informed by the aesthetic, the history and the changing socio-political attitudes towards the South African landscape and its visual representation. Since his relocation to the United Kingdom in 2007 De Menezes has expanded his visual and conceptual terrain to include research in Topology and in the notions of displacement, migration, ecology, identity and mortality.

Custom Shades For A New Age.


Because most of us wear the same pair every day, we often have a deeper attachment to our sunglasses than other fashion accessories. They’re a really a good indicator of someone’s personality.  That’s why the customizable Crafty glasses are so great- finally, you can create your own design to express your unique individuality.  The material is prepped to take common paint and markers and each side of the lenses are covered with a protective film that can be removed when you’re done.  Get ‘em here.

Craig Tracy – Body Paint.


Craig Tracy, a New Orleans native, has been a professional artist since the age of sixteen. Never satisfied with conventional contemporary art, Craig was always searching for a form of expression that would amplify his unique creative perspective eventually leading him to take his expertise in bodypainting into the realm of fine art. I have been a fan of bodypainting since a while and Craig definitely takes it to the next level. Nothing against some skin and color combined.

His work encompasses a bevy of techniques from traditional paintbrush for the majority of the work mixed with airbrush, finger-painting, sponging, splatter and dripping as part of the process as well. Often inspired by a specific body’s shape or perhaps a unique pose, Craig takes inspiration from daily doses of culture, nature and intellectual constructs. We hope you have as much fun as we did in trying to decipher the living from the faux in this visually stunning gallery.

Considered a cornerstone in Bodypaintings progressive movement, today Craig Tracy Bodypaints exclusively as well he owns and operates the very first art gallery in the world dedicated to fine art Bodypainted images. The gallery allows even the most seasoned art collectors and novices alike to see and experience first hand what Bodypainting is ultimately capable of expressing. With a passionate and pioneering spirit Craig personally meets and educates hundreds of people each week in the gallery. The Craig Tracy Gallery is filled with spectacular photographic, paper and canvas prints as well there are numerous videos of the process and books that focus on this art form. Please feel free to visit the gallery if you are ever in or near New Orleans. You will not regret the experience.

 

Abstract Geometric Paintings by Matt Mignanelli


Matt Mignanelli (born June 16, 1983 Providence, RI) is an artist based in New York City best known for his abstract geometric paintings. Mignanelli’s paintings explore the relationship between structure and nature, which is relayed through his use of gradating light and structural elements to create new undefined and visually complex environments. He draws inspiration from energy, pattern, light, and emotion. Structural elements are referenced throughout his work in the form of patterning and textures, along with a vibrant color palette informed by neon nightscapes.

Robert Proch’s Artwork.


These gorgeous paintings belongs to illustrator, painter, and animator Robert Proch from Poland. Tons more to see on his Behance site so get clickin’ guys and show him some love.

Museum Anatomy.


Museum Anatomy (a project by Laura Spector and Chadwick Grayis) is a collection of documentary photographs of works from museums around the world that have been recreated onto the human body. The artwork goes through a significant process until reaching the final outcome, a photograph of Chadwick, sometimes unrecognizable as a human form, with an elaborate, detailed painting covering a portion of his body. The recreated paintings of these historic portraits recapture the subjects in their own moment in history. The resulting photographs reveal a unification of art combining antiquity, history and technology in a contemporary context.

The Artwork Of Gavin Brown.


If Paul Gauguin hadn’t died four years before Frida Kahlo was born, one might suspect that Gavin Brown is their lovechild. Certainly his art carries the organic lushness and slight madness of Kahlo’s many self-portraits and Gauguin’s Polynesian-period art.  You cannot blame the Melbourne-born, 47-year-old Brown for subtlety or minimalism. His world is populated by richly colored graffiti-like images of people and situations where fleshy faces and tattooed skin compete for attention with birds, fruit and flowers. The vivid richness and underlying drama contradict each other.  The color palette is happy and lovely, but these people are not happy. There is something sinister, tormented, going on. Which of course brings us back to impressionists and the most tormented of them all, Vincent van Gogh, whose self-portraits, if combined with his sunflowers would look completely comfortable with Brown’s gallery of people.  Brown has had an illustrious and multi-faceted career in fashion, film and many other forms of art and design, but his focus is on painting.  He has participated in more than 25 solo and group exhibitions. Several of his large commissions adorn the luxurious Marina Bay Sands Singapore hotel and casino.

The Classic Paintings Of Andrew Atroshenko.


Andrew Atroshenko was born in 1965 in the city of Pokrovsk, Russia. Accepted as a gifted child in 1977 into the Children’s Art School, Andrew graduated with honors in 1981. Two years later, Andrew entered Bryansk Art College, and in 1991 was accepted at one of the most prestigious art schools in the world, the St. Petersburg Academy of Art. In 1994, Andrew began taking part in exhibitions such as St. Petersburg Artists in Reutlingen, Germany, the exhibition of a group “Academy” in St. Petersburg (1996), and “Teacher’s memory” (1997). After graduation from St. Petersburg Academy of Art in 1999, Andrew was invited by a New England, US based art group “Bay Arts” to take part in their exhibitions and activities, spending that entire year in the United States into the Millennium.

According to Andrew,

“This year in America gave me more as an artist then all eight years of my formal studies in the prestigious Russian academies. I am a descendent of farmers, and I was impressed by the New England’s landscapes, and how a man in America avoids harming its environment. After seeing Royo and Pino at Artexpo New York 2000, I suddenly realized what direction I want to take my art in. After staying for a year in the United States, I spent two years in Russia perfecting my art.”

Avantgarde Artworks By Maxime Quoilin.


Interesting, beautiful and qualitive artwork were created a Belgian graphic designer – Maxime Quoilin. Black and white colors and detailed specification add a special charm to them. That is the opinion Maxime Quoilin about his creations: “By giving these artworks a more technical but also more meaningful research and execution, avantgarde represents my modest attempt at taking a step forward as a graphic designer and as an artist”.

Minjae Lee.


Minjae Lee is a young South Korean artist whose work expresses a semi-disturbing inner tension that is tough to ignore, even if you feel that you’d like to. It draws you in with its powerful colors, halting imagery and clever juxtaposition of beauty, innocence and fragility with brash, loud and aggressive.  The 19-year old artist is mainly self-taught and uses old-fashioned tools (such as markers, pens, crayons, acrylics) to create his illustrations. He has yet to break into commercial success, but as his style is developing and improving each time new images appear, we will likely see a lot of him in the future.

Extreme Body Paint.


Craig Tracy is a miraculous artist who was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Shapes of models’ bodies are an inspiration for his ideas, but the paintings you see before you are nothing less than inspirational.  Check the method.

Alvaro Tapia Hildago’s Society 6 Illustrations.


Illustration is one of my hidden passions.  I love seeing the works and creations from people all around the world, and what they can come up with conceptually.  Alvaro Hildago’s illustrations are no exception.  His pieces are eerie, yet mesmerizing, and all have a unique stylized look that I just can’t ignore. And if any of his super sick illustrations strike you as intriguing, you can order them here.

The Wonderful Watercolors of Karen Kurycki.


Different types of illustrations catch my eye on a consistent basis, but to date, I don’t think I’ve seen work as interesting as the pieces from Karen Kurycki. Her works are all witty and comical, and all the details, even the design of the type brings out the entire composition. You can see more from her here.

Amazing Paint-Spill Painting.


Paintings can take many different shapes and styles, but spill paintings are among some of the oddest.  This unique style of painting simply involves dripping large amounts of paint onto a structure, and watching the natural flow of the paint create the rest.  Check out a video of this amazing art form below.

Watercolor In Motion.


Turns out watercolor paintings look even better when they’re in motion.  This video was directed/hand-painted by Irina Dakeva of WIZZ.  It’s comprised of around 2000 watercolor paintings drafted one after another.
