 Facebook

At the little black gallerylondon  2013

influenced by a childhood memory of waiting in a car whilst his parents were shopping in a supermarket, london-based artist martin usborne’s photographs focus on the ever-curious relationship between humans and other animals,  the project titled ‘the silence of dogs in cars’ captures usborne’s expressive fear of being alone and unheard. documented in a series of portraits,  the collection of images re-visits the scenario of  experiencing what the artist couldn’t bear as a child -  highlighting the many subtle reactions by dogs being left locked inside a vehicle: some sad, some expectant, some angry, some dejected.

Fantastical portraits bring trees to life by Elido Turco

on Flickr / 500px

Dream Creatures’

Have you ever walked through the woods and felt like someone was watching you? Italian photographer Elido Turco takes this concept to the next level with his images that turn tree bark into caricatures. Many of his fantastical images use simple concepts of mirror imaging to create elaborate beings that seem to come straight from J.R.R. Tolkien’s books or Jim Henson’s sketches. These silly, serious and often creepy trees each have their own personality — so let your imagination run wild as you tour Turco’s eccentric tree portraits.

There are a million and one ways to make art of paper (as we proved in our paper art post), but there’s one artist who recently caught our eye (again). Yulia Brodskaya, an artist and illustrator born in Moscow, creates stunning works of art using the quilled paper technique.

While quilled paper seems simple at first glance, we’ve never seen someone whose work matches Brodskaya’s in terms of detail, color and expressiveness. This art is create by rolling or bending strips of paper and gluing their side to the surface. This makes them essentially lines, but the paper’s width gives these “lines” a depth that 2d art can lack.
