Love from Brazil.

Sao Paulo Brazil has its own version of Tim Barnard in the form of the artist duo Mulheres Barbadas. The two self-described “bearded ladies” take turns drawing until the page is full – love this idea! Their portfolio includes lots of music packaging and work for Coca Cola and MTV. Enjoy a few more images after the jump.

    COLABTASTIC! I say you start this with all your blog readers. just mail out a blank sheet of paper and see what happens.

    that’s actually a cool idea… i would probably just post a digital drawing – the question is how many would actually do it, would you?

  • kyle

    damn, that style is so similar to tim barnard…they both kick ass, but when its partially in color, it looks pretty sweet

    yea i agree that’s the one thing i like about this work more is the use of color (although most of their work is also monochromatic)

  • james Elwhy

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
