    wonder how long it took him to create these wonderful illustrations.

    Love this, the multi layers kinda reminds me of a more modern ‘akbar rejoicing at the birth of his second son’ (catchy title no?) which i had the pleasure of seeing at the V&A a while back – pretty sure the artist was unknown…. don’t suppose San Poggio has been plying his trade for 500 years or so?! Great website you got here! check out our blog if you fancy! http://www.newnotnew.blogspot.com x

    These are really cool, they slightly remind me of Where’s Waldo, especially the second and fourth.

      Exactly what I was thinking! Though over here the fellas called Wally 😉
      Anyways, these are fantastic and do bring a smile to my face. I wonder what inspired San to paint these scenes.

    • Steven Duncan

    they remind me of some old video games, and as if they had evolved on their own in absence of a player…

    This is amazing! This also remind me a Filipino cartoonist named Larry Alcala who made “Slice of Life” you can check his work by searching google images. Too bad his website is down now.

    The detail of these paintings is incredible. I imagine them to be quite large in real life. I’d love to have the time to inspect them properly as there is so much to see in every area of the paintings. I like the consistency of style and theme, although each painting tells a different story, they are all connected. I don’t quite understand them yet but then I kind of feel like you are meant to make up your own story. They almost feel like they’re illusions or a strange kind of Where’s Wally

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.

Shit Robot – “Lose Control” Directed by Kevin McGloughlin

shitrobot-losecontrol

One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
