In my usual tradition, here is the round up of featured posts for 2011.  It’s been a pretty tubulent year personally for me and I haven’t blogged as much as I usually do – but my New Year resolution is to do so, so get ready for more eclectic mixes of art, design and quirkyness!  I wish you all a very happy Christmas and a bright New Year!

The forever changing face of women in art (and film)

Posted in ART, ART VIDEOS with tags , , , on August 1, 2010 by echostains

As promised, I have found a video featuring famous paintings of women in art.   As an added bonus, this video also includes many old film stars, as well as contemporary women stars of stage and screen.  There were several videos to choose from, but I have chosen this one because of the astounding amount of women thought beautiful, intriguing and interesting enough to be painted by famous artists.  This film has been well thought out and the faces morph into each other almost seamlessly.  I’m not keen about the music but the video is great:)

Cheesy Art

Posted in ART, ART VIDEOS, SCULPTURE with tags , , , on June 18, 2010 by echostains

Theres quite a few artists that work with dairy products like butter and cheese.  this piece of art was created for the Great British Cheese Festival in Cardiff.  The sculpture is of Cardiff Castle and this time-lapse video shows how it was done.  I suppose the cheese must have to be kept at a certain temperature to make it workable.

The sculpture by the way is made of Welsh cheese of course and I should imagine the cows in the background are Welsh also….. though it’s hard to make it out 🙂

Spray it with art!

Posted in ART, DESIGN, WATCHED with tags , , on April 25, 2010 by echostains

Theres something so relaxing in watching an artist at work.  There are all sorts of artists and all sorts of ways of painting.  Everyone has seen graffiti and knows about the use of spray paint.  But I thought that this way of using the paint was a bit more unusual.  I don’t know which paper the artist is using, but it must be incredibly durable.  The music is by Neu by the way.

I came across this sand drawing artist and just had to include it.  How the drawings start off have l no bearing on  the end drawing.  Amazing!
