    There’s definitely some Dalí influence here. The imagery is pretty cool to look at.

    • Giimo

      the first one.Dalí pure

  • Shea Kennedy

    Yes I wish I was the first one to say it but I totally agree it has a sort of Dali-esque to it. This work is a lot less abstract which gives it a nice story telling property. I love it!

  • SNOR

    i definitely had the right amount of dali in it. more wouldve been too much. skill is absolutely there. bravo. real impressive.

  • Kevin Be

    Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch, and Salvador Dalí had a baby.

  • Cristofer

    I also see some Bosch influence. These are great.

  • Zachary

    love the carried over themes (snakes, birds, fire, smoke.)

  • JAV

    Omega-rad. I see the Dali… Also kinda Bosch-ish…

  • FROZELAKE

    deeply esoteric

  • Lea

    I like the second one. It’s like an illustration for Hebbels poem “Winterlandschaft”.
    And the fifth … I really really like this style.

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.
