Kissing Sculptures and Statues



Oil paintings that that give the illusion of what it's like to have bad eyesight by Philip Barlow

Philip Balow currently lives and paints in Riebeek Kasteel, near Cape Town. To Philip, light is the ultimate subject because it embodies the pinnacle of all reality. The figures in the landscape serve as carriers and reflectors of the light that falls upon them. Bathed in the luminosity, it is his hope that they would become more beautiful.

"Although I work within a long tradition of landscape painting, my depiction of the ‘seen’ landscape is simply a vehicle through which I navigate territory of another nature. A landscape less ordinary; where the line between the physical and the spiritual realm has seemingly been removed. However, these scenarios are not intended to be of a surreal nature. Hopefully they will seem curiously familiar and convincingly real" Philip mentioned


Amazing Book Sculptures By André Martins de Barros

Andre Martins de Barros was born in 1942 in Pau, a small town near the Spanish border. Andre started to paint from the age of 15 and just after completing his military service decided to devote all his time to passion : Painting.

Curious by nature and a perfectionist he has always enjoyed a challenge and one can see that over the years he has constantly experimented with different styles, starting with classic, expressionism moving on to more abstract work and eventually returning to the classic style which currently motivates him.

His painting are never simple; they tell more than the story depicted on the surface and are often deep philosophical statements in themselves revealing great thoughts, secrets and symbols. They can be poetic or full of humour.

Every painting reveals another aspect of the artist's complex imagination and the style itself is a signature testifying that 'this is the word of Andre Martins de Barros, a world of fantasy

Portraits paintings by Loribelle Spirovski

I’m very intrigued by spaces and how they can affect and shape its occupants. As a child, I was always watching people, but was always more interested in spaces under the bed, in the crevice of a couch, or the corner of a wall. I would gravitate to those places and sit very close to them, feeling myself become separated from the world outside. I think that I still work in the same way, and am very sensitive to my surroundings, so the work that I tend to produce reflects how I was feeling within particular spaces.

I am constantly trying to find myself within the space of a canvas, even if it is through the portrait of another, or the portrait of someone that exists only in my imagination.

Amazing and Giant Insects Street Art by Odeith

Odeith was born in Damaia (Portugal). He held a spray can for the first time in the mid 1980s, but it was in the 1990s, when graffiti began its dissemination throughout Portugal and began to leave its Portuguese birthplace, Carcavelos, that the artist had his first contact with graffiti and its movement.

Early on, the artist showed a special interest in perspective and shading, in an obscure style, which he later called “sombre 3D”, where the compositions, landscapes or portraits, messages or homages, stood out for their realism and technique.

Odeith was, in 2005, internationally recognized for his groundbreaking incursions in the anamorphic art field, standing out for his compositions created in perspective and painted in different surfaces, such as 90º corners or from the wall to the floor, creating an optical illusion effect.

They are, after all, symbols of a women’s experience and growth—so why shy them?In hopes of getting people to better appreciate their natural forms, Shakeel encourages followers to send photos of their stretch marks and have her highlight, and not conceal, them.


The response has been surreal so far. “I cannot explain how overwhelmed I was to see around 300 emails of stretch marks, cellulite, [and] scars and the best part is I am getting requests from men asking if I can put glitter on their marks too!”
