Park in Aspinwall to house $1 million-plus sculpture that kids can climb

Park in Aspinwall to house $1 million-plus sculpture that kids can climb | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it
This story reads a bit like a fable, a tale passed down through generations to illustrate such virtues as hard work, commitment and community. A seemingly impossible goal is achieved by perseverance, and in the end a powerful benefactor bestows a gift that takes it beyond what was originally imagined. In 2010, Aspinwall residents learned that debris-filled acreage along the Allegheny River was going to be developed as a parking lot. They preferred a park, and a grass-roots effort to secure the land began. One hope was for a special play area for all of the children who had helped by raising funds and other volunteer work. Tuesday night, the Aspinwall Riverfront Park organization announced at a project update meeting that The Grable Foundation had procured an important public artwork,

I love it.

America Today was Benton's first major mural commission, and remains his best-known work. The ten-panel mural is imbued with the spirit of the Machine Age, and offers us a great opportunity to enrich our narrative of twentieth-century American art. It arrives at an optimal moment as we begin to consider new ideas for our galleries of modern art.

Steampunk Insects | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it

Inspired by the writings of Franz Kafka and the work of artists HR Giger and Pierre Matter, Gaby Wormann is an artist who deals with the themes of individual ethics and humanity’s uninhibited intervention in complex biological systems. The need to help individuals to achieve rebirth in the world of art through implantation and modification has become her key artistic focus.

Les superbes digital paintings d’environnements de Gliulian | Design Spartan : Art digital, digital painting, webdesign, illustration et inspiration… | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it

Originaire de Shanghai en Chine, le concept artist Gliulian nous gâte de superbes paysages réalisés en digital paintings. Fans de paysages asiatiques ou d’heroic fantasy, cet article vous est particulièrement destiné.

 

Etant donné l’origine de Gliulian je n’ai aucune information supplémentaire sur cet artiste. En revanche, ses digital paintings sont bel et bien en ligne et se suffisent à eux-même : le sens de la composition dont il fait preuve est stupéfiant, de même que son traitement de la lumière. Pour chaque digital painting, on sent que son coup de pinceau est rapide et net, ce qui donne un rendu très dynamique et expressif.

The artist who mastered the art of bringing 2D sketchbooks to life with his pencil has grown tired of black and white, adding much more color to his latest collection. Nagai Hideyuki is a talented, young Japanese artist who has serious anamorphic abilities. Now 23 years old, he continues to build an impressive profile and even shares some of his techniques on YouTube videos like the one below.


He also uploads videos of his drawings from different angles to prove that they aren’t actually 3 dimensional. It’s hard to believe sometimes!
