Typical household accessories – lamps, tables, chairs, books found their place in wilderness. Photographed (and installed) by Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen look like a dream or fairy tale.
I like installations with lamps the most, maybe because they are photographed in dusk and look sooo unreal…. On artist’s site you will find much more beautiful scenarios/art works/photographs.
I want to introduce you to work of one of my favourite aerial photographers – Kacper Kowalski. He lives in the same city as I do and I can recognize many places from his photos, maybe that’s the reason I love them so much.
Today I’ll show you only winter photos, which are (in my opinion) the best. I’ll keep other photos for another post – there are far too many beautiful works for one post.
Here is artist’s home site with many other wonderful photographs (photo series’ names are at the bottom of main page – they are hard to find when you visit page for the first time).
Here are some interesting collages by Jeff Hendrickson:
Look at these collages from Sky Iceberg serie by Rachel Prouty – how beautiful and tranquil they are! They were created out of the Atlas of Deep Sky Splendors – simple idea and stunning result.
Collages were for sale on Little Paper Planes, but they are currently unavailable (what a pity!).
You can see other works by artist on her web site.
There was a time in our life (I suppose when my husband and I started dating) when none of us had a car. We didn’t live together yet and public transport between our houses almost didn’t exist, so we walked a lot.
Our everyday routes started and ended in one of: my mom’s home where I used to live, my husand’s home where we live now and my parents’-in-law home who we often visited.
Time of the year was awful – rainy and cold November (as usual) so we were very happy when we finally bought a car, but now I like to remind myself about these walks.
That’s why I created these simple illustrations showing our routes. Plus, we are going to sell our apartment and move to bigger one, so all ways to keep memories about our current home are precious.
Please let me know which map version do you like more? Do you like these maps without any labels or would you add some?
Grey & red version:
Black & pink version:
This map does not show whole city we live in – I drew only the part of the city which was important regarding our walks and only the most important streets.
If you would like to have similar illustration of your routes let me know – I’m going to add such custom map to my etsy shop. There are many possibilities of your routes:
- romantic walks
- commuting to your first work
- your walks to school and friends when you were a child / teenager
- everyday walks with your dog
- all of them on one map
Think of this project in terms of keeping memories for you or someone else you love.
When I saw this tiny photo from Milano in one of newspapers I knew I have to paint it:
The composition was so interesting it immediately found place on my wall waiting for its time. It took me whole month to find the courage to create my first painting basing on this photo and here it is:
Photo is from Milano but it reminds me of Warsaw so that’s how it’s called.
Almost whole painting was done with a little putty knife (exept of orange squares) so it has nice texture. Painted with acrylic, size 20×20 inch.
Painting can be bought in my etsy shop.
