Sculptures Made Out Of Tiny Paint Droplets

Chris Dorosz painting Chris Dorosz painting

Artist Chris Dorosz uses a unique painting technique.  He drips paint droplets onto plastic rods.  When arranged the rods form a three dimensional image, a pointillism like sculpture.  Step back from the screen for a moment – the disparate dots congeal to from images of people.  The fact that this is similar to the way a low resolution digital image works is not an accident.  Dorosz revels in the idea of the drop as a basic unit of constructing a painting.  He says:

“Out of material discovery I began to regard the primacy of the paint drop, a form that takes shape not from a brush or any human-made implement or gesture, but purely from its own viscosity and the air it falls through, as analogous to the building blocks that make up the human body (DNA) or even its mimetic representation (the pixel).”

Gill Schneider And A Flying Circus

Paragliding Circus from shams on Vimeo.

Paraglider Gill Schneider had thought a while about arranging an unusual pair: his love of flying and the circus.  After the jump a video captures the combination.  At first Schneider incorporates his parachute into various circus acts.  Before long, though, he takes a performer into the air, juggling gliding over the beaches.  The highlight of the video, however, is trapeze artist Roxanne Gilliand.  Hanging below Shcneider, Gilliand gracefully performs high over a small lakeside town.  The pairing, though unlikely, is a fascinating one.

Ryan Duggan‘s posters are hilariously colorful and eye catchy. Although the illustrations are simple, combined with various elements and symbols, they make up for one great event poster. He has been working for the last few years in Chicago and his greater work contains series of poster for different art and music events.

A Day In Decay: Italian Propaganda

IMG_4075

I don’t neccassirily associate Italy with Communism, so I was shocked to find so many hammer and sickle logos and graffiti in every single city that I traveled in. The above plaque is actually part of a Communist bulletin board that I ran into in a small town called Montepulciano in Tuscany. For those of you uber nerds New Moon was filmed there. The entire country was covered with political graffiti, stencils, and posters. It’s interesting because you don’t find too much of that in the states. Sure you’ll run into an occasional “stop the war” bumper sticker on a minivan but seeing so many hammer and sickle’s and anti-government slogans spray painted on thousand year old buildings gave Italy a surprising twist. Here’s a collection of some of my favorite finds.
