Can you believe that this is not a photograph but a finger-painting made on an iPad?????
The piece was created by UK-based visual artist Kyle Lambert on his iPad, using an app call Procreate. Although it maintains the crisp details of a photograph, the work is actually a painting made with an estimated 285,000 brush strokes across a screen.
The creative process, which took more than 200 hours, is captured in this time-lapse video. Viewers can watch as Morgan Freeman emerges from a group of blurry streaks into a realistic portrait.
Im personally a huge fan of Alexa Meade and I've posted about her work before. While many artists seek to replicate reality through three-dimensional paintings, Los Angeles-based artist Alexa Meade goes the opposite route and paints on three-dimensional subjects to make them seem two-dimensional.
The artist covers real-life figures in acrylic, transforming them into a seemingly flat work of art.
Meade manages to not only paint live models into believable 2D renditions of themselves, but also integrates them into walls covered in multi-hued graffiti. She merges her fine art skills with street art and photography to produce these remarkable images of stencil-like monochrome urban youths against colorful spray painted murals.
"You Are Not A Sketch" is a series that depicts a fashion sketch next to a 1:1 proportional model. The disturbing images were released by Star Models, a modeling agency in Brazil. The campaign packs a powerful message: say no to anorexia. Since society is always shoving down our throats that we should be stick-thin and Photoshop-pretty, it’s nice to see modeling agencies finally speak out.
