    I’d like to also add that this guy, as well as being in top form, is also extremely kind and done to earth. His figure drawing sessions at Space when I was in school were the best in town. Prettiest and craziest (and interesting) models in town. Word up Lu Cong!

      ^ great to hear this sort of thing – i am always half nervous when i meet someone whose work i love, because if they are an ass then i will have a harder time liking their work

        Def. can relate to that. Nothin’ but love for Lu Cong + his work. He puts in the hours. He stays humble. If only we were all (myself included) a little more like ’em.

    Amazing paintings! The style softly reminds me of the Dutch artist; Charley Toorop.
    And her style later in her career of doing portrets.

    looks like he had some classical training. something about their eyes, i guess.

      I hate to speak for him, but I think he’s self-taught. Went to school for something completely different and just started doing this on the side;

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.
