Alive Without Breath: Three Dimensional Animals Painted

Alive Without Breath: Three Dimensional Animals Painted

Good Morning !!!  What you’re about to see is the art of the Singapore artist Keng Lye.  All the animals in these pictures are made from resin and paint so they are basically sculptures. When I first saw them I was really impressed of how they look so real and alive, he’s very good. If you want to see more pictures you can check  “Alive Without Breath” on deviantART. ...

From a power station into an architecture museum

From a power station into an architecture museum

Good Morning !!! One of the best known landmarks in London, the Battersea power station, will be transformed into an architecture museum. Atelier Zündel Cristea (AZC) won the competition to design this iconic building. Personally I think they did a great job. From the moment I laid my eyes on the design, I was captivated.

Ars Sacra Christian art in the western world

Good Morning !!! what I’m going to tell you about this book won’t give it justice, but I’ll do my best.  Ars Sacra is not a normal book, it’s a time machine that will transport you from the early beginnings of Christian art and architecture which started in the catacombs of the third-century in Rome, to our present day. It’s a monumental book where you can find mainly everything  concerning art and architecture pictures, and not only from a wide angle but you will enjoy the details in a way only the artist saw with some amazing close ups.  It doesn’t end here, the text is very well researched to carry you with the pictures to another dimension where everything is defined and clear for you to understand the transition between one era to the other. When I said it’s a monumental book I didn’t only mean from the figurative aspect but also the tactile one since it weighs almost 22 pounds (10 kg), and contains over 800 pages...
