Brent Christensen is an artist who creates real life massive ice castles. Christensen has a crew of about 20 or so members and builds these structures by forming icicles that require millions of gallons of water. With some even reaching heights of 25 feet which contain stairs, archways, tunnels, and can be illuminated at night with multi-colored LED lights.
Jeffrey Simmons’ watercolour experimentation work is definitely a remarkable way to utilize watercolour as a medium. Beyond the fact the work is super cool, his tumblr has a lot of his process documented, which is sweet because a lot of artists rarely do so. Definitely give his work a very nice, long look.
There’s something amazing about artists who have not only the technical ability to blow your mind, but also use subject matter to bring in another element of interest. LJ Lindhurst‘s realism portraits vary across the board but these water pistols are so well done and also just allow the viewer to be encompassed in childhood nostaligia.
“WATER CREATIONS was created inspired by high speed photography. I used a clothesline in the backyard to hang the water balloons and flash to freeze the movement while popping the balloons. Which created some interesting effects also gels were used to bring the creations to life.” – Shawn Farrington
DoDo Jin Ming‘s work completely immerses the viewer as if they were being attacked by the horrendous situations in the middle of the sea. Kind of freaks you out to be put in that position, but the imagery is so freakin’ well done.
Jason de Caires Taylor’s underwater figure sculptures are absolutely unreal. How frickin’ long would each installation take?! Yeesh. Either way, it’s a treat for our eyes. Beautiful video after the jump to boot.
