Amazing Kirie Art

Give This Guy A Pad Of Paper, And He’ll Make Something Incredible.

SEPTEMBER 2, 2014
Akira Nagaya, a self-taught Japenese Kirie (literally “cut paper” in Japanese) artist has spent the past 30 years of his life learning one of the most ancient and beautiful arts in the world.

It requires patience, and brilliance, but most importantly… a willingness to endure years of paper cuts!

But what he creates though is nothing short of the brilliance you’d expect from a true master.

When Akira first started as a sushi chef over 30 years ago, he first learned the art of delicate paper cutting through food preparation.

He would continue the art of using paper and a utility knife as he enjoyed the work.

Eventually increasing his skill to sheer mastery level.

Later, this 47 year old would eventually open his own restaurant and even decorate the walls with his creations.

It didn’t take long for others in the community to discover his work and spread it to the world.

(via Spoon & Tamago)

Amazingly enough, TV crews eventually showed up to learn about this amazing art and Akira’s work spread even further than he could ever imagine.  “That was the first time I even considered what I had been doing as art,” recalls Nagaya.

If you’d like to see more of Akira’s beautiful work, head over to his Facebook page.

Playing with light, shadow, and perspective, Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki creates these stylized optical illusions using the entire spread of his sketchbooks. Once propped against a wall and viewed from the perfect angle his illustrations seem to leap off the page creating a visual effect similar to an MC Escher drawing. See many more examples on his website, Facebook, and deviantART. (via visual news)

Awesome Painting with Fingers

Unbelivable Zaria Forman Artworks

February 3, 2014  by

The inspiration for Zaria’s drawings began in early childhood when she traveled with her family throughout several of the world’s most remote landscapes, which were the subject of her mother’s fine art photography. Her work exhibits extensively in galleries and venues throughout the United States and overseas.

In addition to exhibitions, recent projects include a series of drawings that served as the set design for the classic ballet Giselle, which premiered in October 2012 at the Grand Theatre of Geneva, Switzerland. Ten of her drawings were also used in the set design for House of Cards, a Netflix TV series directed by David Fincher and starring Kevin Spacey.

In August 2012 she led Chasing the Light, an expedition sailing up the NW coast of Greenland, retracing the 1869 journey of American painter William Bradford and documenting the rapidly changing arctic landscape. Continuing to address climate change in her work, she spent September 2013 in the Maldives, the lowest-lying country in the world, and arguably the most vulnerable to rising sea levels.

Amazing Art Made by Snowshoe

English based artist Simon Beck created these amazing works of art by stomping around French ski resorts with nothing but a pair of snowshoes.

“I made a work of art out of snow in my high school football field once. It was displayed on the news and I got suspended.”

Art made from Cutting Wire Mesh

Ephemeral Portraits Cut from Layers of Wire Mesh by Seung Mo Park

source:  http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1ikp5m/:1KMMlKwsV:blC0PgpH/www.thisiscolossal.com/2012/04/ephemeral-portraits-cut-from-layers-of-wire-mesh-by-seung-mo-park/

Using a process that could be the new definition of meticulous, Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park creates giant ephemeral portraits by cutting layer after layer of wire mesh. Each work begins with a photograph which is superimposed over layers of wire with a projector, then using a subtractive technique Park slowly snips away areas of mesh. Each piece is several inches thick as each plane that forms the final image is spaced a few finger widths apart, giving the portraits a certain depth and dimensionality that’s hard to convey in a photograph, but this video on YouTube shows it pretty well. Park just exhibited this month at Blank Space Gallery in New York as part of his latest series Maya (meaning “illusion” in Sanskrit). You can see much more at West Collects.

Amazing Finger Art

Judith Ann Braun’s Fingers Are Magical 

With an art career spanning more than three decades, Judith Ann Braun has tested the limits of her artistic musculature. She began as a self-described “realistic figure painter,” and worked through the struggles common to anyone who endeavors upon an artistic pursuit, that of searching for one’s own voice in the chosen medium.

Fast forward to the 21st century where the evolution of Braun’s work has brought us to the Fingerings series, a collection of charcoal dust landscapes and abstracts “painted” using not brushes but her fingertips. Braun has a specific interest in symmetry, as evidenced by the patterns she follows in a number of the Fingerings pieces as well as work in the Symmetrical Procedures collection. Her fingerprints are obvious up close in some of the paintings, though a step back and the grandeur of Braun’s imagination sprawls into a landscape of soft hills, overhanging trees, delicate florals, and a reflective waterway.
