    wow lately it has been seen lots of pop surrealistic painters that pretty much do the same things , in this case i found this very intriguing, it looks like the painter tries to deal with the cuestion “if toons are really alive?”then he comes up with the idea that if they are alive then they must be animals and he brings up all this biological lenguaje of NEON ocean colours , organs, bony estructures ,and all kind of cells types that makes the surrealistic creatures seem like they can actually breath and reproduce

    I love all of Charlie’s paintings. I’ve seen his work before about a year ago and not that I wasn’t interested but I guess I didn’t have time that day to actually check out his stuff. Anyway, Booooooom I’m so glad that you’ve brought him back to my attention. His work is amazing because it almost looks as though you could just reach out and touch the slime. I agree w/ Antar, this dude is definitely testing the waters and he’s doing a stellar job at it too. And I thought it was just me that realized a lot of artists are doing this type of pop/surrealistic style, but only, he has a legit style.

    On another note: I’ve always wanted to intern/assist an artist on his/her work. And now Charlie has been added to my list of potential artists to work w/. :))

    i love these works–the macabre juxtaposed with the colors definitely makes a statement.

    Turning ugly into beautiful. Well done.

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
