    beautiful works. Do that stay long if they’re charcoal?

      i would assume they dont last long

    This is art at it’s best. Super size drawings are even more impressive as the impact is that much greater. I love that they are on the sides of buildings for everyone to admire, as well as the fact that there is so much texture added to the art from the markings on the buildings themselves. My favourites are the first and last ones. The first because of the angle that the person is at, you feel involved in the art just by looking at it. I also like the textures on the wall and the last image I like for the detail and the cracks in the wall.

    Incredible work and the charcoal aspect is a deliberate thing by Jorge. Some of his Terrestrial Series is on an even bigger scale and equally impressive in a different way. Inspiring.

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!
