Tilt Brush is Google’s New 3D Paint App

Tilt Brush allows you to create artwork in a 3D environment

Tilt Brush is an exciting new application by Google that uses virtual reality to paint in 3D. This combination of art and technology allows you to create paintings in a three dimensional environment, through brushes of course, using unlikely materials such as fire, stars, or snowflakes – below is a great demo vid featuring street artists Faith47 and Tristan Eaton trying it out. The new Tilt Brush app is currently available for the HTC Vive headset. This is so very awesome!! 🙂

Loving Vincent Trailer is a Must-Watch

Loving Vincent is an upcoming short film in tribute to Vincent van Gogh

Loving Vincent: We love this first trailer for the upcoming Loving Vincent, an impressive short film in tribute to Vincent van Gogh, which was made with twelve oil paintings per second and achieved by over one hundred painters. Conceived by Polish directors Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, every painter had to follow three week’s intensive training to learn the style of the famous painter and master various stop motion software. Production of the film continues until late August 2016.

James Rawson’s Postmodern Pop Art

James Rawson mixes painting & collage to create colourful pop cultural compositions

James Rawson: We love the paintings of British artist James Rawson, defined as a postmodern pop artist, who blends painting and collage to create explosive and colourful compositions filled with references to movies, brands, comics, and other iconic pop cultural products and objects. While his work reflects on popular culture of the last 50 years, James Rawson also depicts associated social problems such as over-consumption, poverty, junk food, and the omnipresence of advertising. We’d kill for one of his pieces on our wall – awesome work! 🙂

Ivan Alifan: We love these large format oil paintings created by Russian artist Ivan Alifan, who uses visual ambiguity to generate curiosity, intrigue and slight disgust in his series It’s Not Milk. Through these dripping and oozing portraits, Ivan Alifan explores ideas of sexuality and eroticism with an unsettling modern gaze. Fantastic stuff!
