  • The amount of detail going on here is incredible. They look like something out of an antique storybook.

  • laurel

    ugh so so good. Need to see these in person now.

  • Thanks Booooooom!!!!! You are a beautiful thing!

    The solo show Hotbox Devolution at Half Gallery in NYC is up for one more week! So if you are in the area check it out…

  • How he does this with watercolors blows my mind.

  • those details are great!

  • claudita

    Such an amazing collection of work. The pics barely even do it justice – we saw the exhibition live at the Half Gallery in NYC and were blown away by the level of detail and beauty. Ben has incredible talent and gets better and better with each new show.

  • About time the world knew the genius of Ben Blatt, big things to come for this guy no doubt about it.

  • ALEX IKHIDE

    actually want to gauge my eyes out to how good these are!!!! >_<

    • cheers Ben i think you got some new fans here!

  • Shieauwn

    I love the notion of nature and man working together.

  • Kelsey

    There is nothing about these that I don’t love. Excellent.

  • Woau – this is watercolor? Joyfully delighted by them all.

  • I do not know why, but these colors remind me luigi serafini

  • Jason Beene

    I’m fortunate to have a limited print of Blatt’s hanging on my wall. Stunning in person! If you get the chance to own his art…take it.

  • like beautiful naturalist expositions of Hieronymous Bosch’s world! I love the second! I want to be there!

  • Was lucky enough to get a private tour of the show by Ben himself. It was a great show. Truly inspiring. Sucks for all those who missed it.

  • Katie

    Your work just keeps getting richer in detail and color, not to mention creativity. What a gift.

  • Hieronymus Bosch meets Albrecht Durer’s “Great Piece of Turf”.

  • finally did it…

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
