    I love these!

  • lapetitefaon

    Oh my god, beautiful! Love the delicate shading of the birds

  • Nice push ‘n pull between sweet drawings with lovely birds versus a soft orgasmic ecstasy.

  • Really like these. As someone who makes work with an environmental message, I work a lot with imagery of endangered and extinct birds.

    It’s interesting to note that all the birds depicted are extinct (Passenger Pigeon, Ivory-billed Woodpecker, Carolina Parakeet.) I think the birds in the 5th one down are Guam Micronesian Kingfishers, which luckily are only extinct in the wild. There’s a healthy breeding population in captivity.

    I’m going to have to go check out his website for some more info…very intriguing… :)

  • wow i’m so impressed with your work!! truely amazing, keep it up:-)!!

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
