Renaissance/Victorian Crossplay Mash-ups!

This is a collection of the awesome work of Sacha Goldberger who combines models, costumes and photography to create what I think are pretty cool and unique cosplay ideas and art.

 

Imagine your favorite comic book, movie, and fairy tale heroes and villains if they existed during the Renaissance. What might a painted portrait of them from those times have looked like?

Wonder no more. Photographer Sacha Goldberger was part of an event in Paris recently where these iconic characters—including Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, The Hulk, Darth Vader, Catwoman, Princess Leia, Joker, Superman, Snow White, and others—were photographed with a decidedly old school look to them, creating a fascinating set of Renaissance painting-style cosplay images.

You can check out a bunch of the images below to see how some of your favorites would have looked in a different time.

It’s also worth noting that these are all said to be legit shots. No photoshop has been used to enhance them, even with the models in the Superman and Princess Leia images, who both look eerily similar to Christopher Reeve and Carrie Fisher.

More of the images can be found at Goldberger’s Facebook page, where you can also find images of the gallery where these pictures were hung on the wall to really make them look authentic.

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.

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.

Beach Art Created by a Man with a Rake

A Man Takes A Single Rake to The Beach. And When You Zoom Out And See It…

If you live in San Francisco, California, then you may be lucky enough to come across the art of Andres Amador. He doesn’t paint or sculpt. He prefers a medium that is temporary but absolutely beautiful: a sandy beach at low tide. He uses a rake to create works of art that can be bigger than 100,000 sq. ft.
He spends hours creating these intricate masterpieces, knowing that the tide will soon come in and wash away his work forever.
For Andres, his art is “more about the process and less about the result.” He knows that it will all be temporary. While making his beach mural explorations, he uses a rope as a guide so that he can make the geometric patterns. When asked WHY he does it, Andre gives the best answer… “The unanswerable question! Its fun. I get to be at the beach.” Consider yourself lucky if you happen to stumble across one of his playa paintings, because it won’t be there long. By raking up the wet sand at low tide, he is able to make contrasting sand colors. He even offers his services, helping people propose. Or even teaching others to create these beachscapes as part of a team building exercise. According to Andres, it only takes a couple of hours once the tide is low enough to create the designs. Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
You should definitely Like Andres On Facebook and Visit His Web Site where you can buy prints of his designs if you want.
Share his work. It’s truly awesome.
