    i’ve already seen this one of Thom Yorke, but the Pete Doherty one was a surprise for me… i love the details on fingers, nails and rings.

    Hollings should watch out that Crystal Castles doesn’t steal that Madonna painting for their next album.

    that’s definitely the one-sheet to “Last Days”, not actually Cobain.
    But beautiful just the same. They all are.

    Nattack; good call on the “last days”, I thought so.

    would mind sharing with us what softwares you used to make these beautiful portraits? Im specially puzzled about those brush effects- I’m assuming they’re all handmade and then you use digital effects on them?
    amazing work!
    greetings from brazil!

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.
