That was supposed to be just a quick and simple mermaid drawing, but then I did a background. What’s gotten into me?!

People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter

This is 1000% more motivating than every preachy “real writers write every day” post on all of Tumblr.

Surreal furniture by Lila Jang

The strange and surreal furniture designer and Korean artist Lila Jang, who in his last series likes to twist and distort the classic French furniture of the 18th century. Lila Jang studied design and Fine Arts in Paris in Seoul, and has already participated in numerous exhibitions worldwide.

 

I want my house to be filled with just this furniture and for everyone to attempt to sit down.

Take a moment to look at this picture and realize how fucking good it really is.

okay, this took me so long to get I was starting to think it was some kind of tumblr hoax, but it’s a picture of two people kissing(?). the bright coral bit is an ear, the black is hair, the pale part at the bottom is a shirt. their faces are sort of merged. I like it.

Kehinde Wiley’s paintings often blur the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation. Rendered in a realistic mode–while making references to specific Old Master paintings–Wiley creates a fusion of period styles, ranging from French Rococo, Islamic architecture and West African textile design to urban hip hop and the “Sea Foam Green” of a Martha Stewart Interiors color swatch. Wiley’s slightly larger than life size figures are depicted in a heroic manner, as their poses connote power and spiritual awakening. Wiley’s portrayal of masculinity is filtered through these poses of power and spirituality.

We just learned about another awesome artist who makes things that look like other things. Brett Kern is an artist and teacher based in Elkins, West Virginia who created a wonderful series of ceramic sculptures that look exactly like inflatable dinosaurs, astronauts, and balloons.

Visit Brett Kern’s website to view more of his bright and playful artwork.

[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family.  A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]

I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.

i hate when people go “i dont credit fanartists as Real artists because its fanart and they should draw more original art” ok yeah that patronizing attitude is nice and all but you know like… every piece of classical art is fanart of the bible

im sorry da vinci, the last supper doesnt COUNT as real art because its not original art and you should make some ocs

I think I just found the most compelling argument toward fanart ever
