New ad for Sao Paulo’s I.A.R (Recycling Environmental Institute), by agency Ageisobar. This Brazilian artist’s work sends a powerful message; using sand to represent water depicts the depressing reality of the future water crisis.
“David and Goliath” by Caravaggio, remade by Miguel Iturbe. One of the best new entries in the Adobe remake competition. You can find the other entries here.

In her paintings, Amanda Clyne achieves a striking contrast between the sensitive representation of her subjects, and the rigid sliced effect of the overall image.
Here is what she says about the process:
I begin my process by culling images from fashion magazines. Cropping the image into a portrait, I re-print the image on to a surface to which the printing ink does not adhere, so the image remains wet. I photograph the print as the fluid image morphs and dissolves over time. I then compose a new image from fragments of these photographs—each image each is comprised of slices of the image at various stages of dissolution. Once I have resolved the final composition, I project the basic outlines of the image onto a canvas, and use a print-out of my composition as a painting reference. Each fragment is taped off and painted separately. Because of the narrow width of the fragments (some are less than 1/4 inch wide), I usually paint every third fragment, then while I wait for those fragments to dry, I paint alternating fragments on a different painting. Some paintings require three or four rounds of painting, so I work on several paintings at once. (quote via Colossal)
Check out some amazing new images on the official website of Liu Bolin, the artist also known as the “Chameleon" or the "Invisible Man." Bolin paints himself so that he disappears ‘into’ a scene, camouflaged by the intricate painting on his skin and clothing. Truly amazing.

Otto Bjornik “I am a storyteller. My tales are a rich mixture of precious childhood memories and fairy tales. I weave together lines to celebrate the beauty and elegance of nature and human form. And sprinkled within that tapestry are touches of whimsy that bring to mind the wonderment of childhood and play. It is my way of rekindling youth with a wink and infinite mirth”
I am always amazed at Marion Bolognesi’s ability to capture such a lot of story and emotion through her simple watercolours of peoples’ eyes. Have a look at her website: http://www.marion-b.com/
