    first thing that came to mind lookin at the 3rd one down: chris van allsburg’s polar express

  • Parker

    What is this the Chronicles of NJ. Lovein the Detail… look at that ashtray.

  • Bolla

    Someone please tell me how long it took to complete one of those pieces.

  • Ian

    He can paint, but the subject doesn’t really do anything for me.

  • trip

    1.) what caught the attention of the guy in the blue?
    is he really listening?
    what was their conversation about?
    how long have they been there?
    what are there names?

    2.)why does he have that sort of haircut?
    what type brand of jeans are those and how expensive were they?
    why is he on the floor, is he high?
    where did he get that tattoo, how much did it cost?
    whats he thinking about?

    3.)what is she thinking about?
    is she waiting for someone?
    how many smokes and drinks of coffee have she had?
    what does she take in her coffee?
    is she looking at some one?

    4.)did he shave his mohawk that today?
    is that his last smoke, how much where his smokes, how long has he been smoking, is he going to quit?

    the questions are unimportant, but the painting are immortalizing to think that.

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!
