  • 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!!!! >_<

  • Brandon Wilson

    Watercolor?! Amazing..

  • exorbitante… bello

  • Samantha Van Geel

    • 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”.

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.

Artist Spotlight: Fantasaraxia

A selection of work by my friend Boldtron, currently creating magnificent stuff in Cinema 4D under the name Fantasaraxia. Also a shoutout to Arnau, who first shared these works over on Artnau (my favourite site for visual inspiration). If you ever visit Barcelona hit these guys up, I had the best time there with them!

Have a look at more images of Boldtron’s work below!
