A Comprehensive List of Things That Calm Me Down
This is a photo of myself I just posted on Instagram. And a drawing of a boy by Michael Jackson. Apparently.
It can’t just be me who sees this as weird, right?
I find it helps if your medium cup doesn’t have a handle on it.
These are like a children’s book come to life. I <3 them.
3D Paintings by Shintaro Ohata
Shintaro Ohata is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world. He says that it all started from when he wondered “I could bring the atmosphere or dynamism of my paintings with a more different way if I place sculptures in front of paintings”. Many viewers tend to assume that there is a light source set into his work itself because of the strong expression of lights in his sculpture.
Today, V&M launched its sister site, V&M Photography, home to its Emerging Artist program, which I’ll be curating and which will feature up-and-coming global photographers throughout the year. And as part of the launch, V&M and its participating artists will donate up to 30 percent of all net proceeds, in the program’s first 31 days, to the New York Foundation of the Arts (NYFA), which supports fellow artists affected by Hurricane Sandy.
