  • Really into these pics. I worked as a bee keepers assistant grade 10-12 oh the memories these bring back.

  • zanez

    interesting. whta’s up with that bee thing ? interesting theme..

  • Maya

    it looks like the figure is holding up a (blank) mirror in #3. very cool.

  • Benjamin

    These are great. I love the subject, the way it’s executed, everything. One of the best series of paintings I’ve seen on booooooom.com.

  • dno

    The colours and style of theses images remind me of Jeff Jordan’s work…He did some cover art for the Mars Volta.

    Awesome!

    I like all of them. I’ve been wanting to bee keep for a while, but I don’t really have the space. With bees always dying now, it’s a shame that people don’t do more of it. Bee keeping should be a priority for most farmers, and people who have the space to do it.

    These reminded me of this Pieter Bruegel painting:

    i love these, especially the way the landscapes slope off into the distance and the atmosphere of them.

    i am also going to bee keeping club to ‘educate myself in the art of bee keeping’ in the hope of getting a hive and swarm next summer !! Very excited

  • I wouldn’t care for having these on my walls!

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
