How to turn on/off a Polish town – an optical illusion

A Spanish artist named Escif created this mural for the Katowice Street Art Festival in Poland.
Escif’s outdoor art is not meant to only be an illusion; instead it wants to make you think.
He quotes the philosopher Kant:
“Art is the chance to think regardless of concepts.”

Heike Weber room decorations

Utterly amazing installations by Heike Weber. She draws with permanentmarkers on acrylic floor and walls – surfaces that have reached up to 600 m2.

 

I can’t begin to imagine how time consuming these breathtaking installations must have been.

Shadow Art by Kumi Yamashita

Born in Japan but now living and working in New York City, artist Kumi Yamashita does incredible things with light and shadows. Kumi has an impressive list of solo and group shows sine the late 90s along with a host of permanent collections around the world.

 

Kumi received her bachelor in fine arts at the Cornish College of the Arts in Washington and obtained her masters in fine art from the Glasgow School of Art in the UK.

In her series entitled Light & Shadow, Kumi uses a single light source along with an assortment of perfectly placed objects to create incredible shadow silhouettes and artwork on walls. Please enjoy this small sample below, and be sure to visit Kumi’s official site for even more amazing artwork.

Shadowy Faces Made from Strainers

 

Using simple strainers, public sources of light and very steady hands; artist and sculptor Isaac Cordal creates incredible faces in colander baskets, placing them around London, using street lights to project shadowy figures onto sidewalks.

We’ve already featured Isaac’s brilliant work before, but in this series entitled Cement bleak, Isaac takes his street art to a completely different (but equally amazing) place from his well known miniature cement sculptures.

Tom French´s skull art

Why is it that romance and death go so well together in art? Perhaps it’s the idea that true love is eternal, which means that even in death the lovers will stay together. Or, maybe it’s because death will eventually conquer any romance, no matter how powerful. Maybe it’s that true love will lead us to do anything for our partner – even dying for them, just like Romeo and Juliet did. Or, perhaps it’s the simple contrast of something so dark with something so beautiful.

 

Whatever the reason, artist Tom French is a master of mixing the macabre with the saccharine, depicting romance after romance all blended in seamlessly with skull illusions.
