  • 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

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.
