    So Art Fag City is as relevant as this guy, huh?

    But seriously – interesting paintings. I hate bull fights but I think that only makes them more interesting.

    It reminds me of the dreadful memories of bull fighting in my hometown of Cuietzeo, MX! There are certain things that I wish I could not remember from that time. These paintings create amazing illustrations for the mind!

    I really like the first one the bull is so soft and beautiful

  • Eric

    I think he taught one of my painting professors. Always liked his work. also, seems like a totally new direction for him.

    I agree with David on this one. I’m an Eric Fischl fan, but I caught some of these in person last year and everything about them felt stale. Subject matter, technique, size (they’re way unnecessarily huge), and price (ridiculously expensive). If art world folks didn’t know these were by Eric Fischl, I doubt there’d be nearly as much interest in them.

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.
