“Each Line One Breath” is a series of meditative drawings by artist John Franzen. He calls them morphogenetic freehand drawings.
He starts with a straight line all the way down a page, and then slowly draws another line beside it. He tries his best to copy the line exactly but inevitably there are tiny imperfections. These “mistakes” are amplified as he copies each new line, and the drawing begins to reveal itself like a curtain. (text via booooom.com)
“Light Rorschach“, a series of photographs of Nicolas Rivals mixing abstract portraits, reflections in water and light painting to give us some beautiful light Rorschach tests… “A Light Painting work that let everyone see his own representation of what is in the picture. The aesthetics of melting metal associated with the symmetry of reflection in the water causes the viewer to question the reality of these photographs…” (Text via Ufunk.net)

Meet Hal Lasko, mostly known as Grandpa, a 97-year-old man who uses Microsoft Paint from Windows 95 to create artwork that has been described as “a collision of pointillism and 8-Bit art.” Lasko, who is legally blind, served in WWII drafting directional and weather maps for bombing raids and later worked as a typographer (back when everything is done by hand) for clients such as General Tire, Goodyear and The Cleveland Browns before retiring in the 1970s. Decades after his retirement his family introduced him to Microsoft Paint and he never looked back. Approaching a century in age, Lasko is now having his work shown for the first time in an art exhibition and also has prints for sale online.

‘Afterglow’, Lyon, France by Rowena Martinich /
“In November 2011, Rowena Martinich undertook a residency and exhibition at Galerie Lorenzetti in Lyon, France. Invited by the director of the space – Lyés Sidhoum, Martinich created a work which functioned as both a large-scale, enveloping installation piece, as well as a commercial work, where the canvases on the wall amongst the painted mass, were for sale. Interesting balances were created between the various areas of Martinich’s work in this exhibition, which borderlines between an installation, public art and gallery based practice.” //
‘The Invisible Man’ artwork by Chinese artist Liu Bolin /
Liu Bolin is an artist from China’s Shandong province. Born in 1973, he currently lives and works in Beijing. Bolin received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Shandong College of Arts in 1995 and his Master of Fine Arts from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing in 2001. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world.
Known as The Invisible Man, Bolin’s most popular works are from his “Hiding in the City” series; photographic works that began as performance art in 2005. Helped by his assistants, Bolin stands still for hours in a landscape while they paint on him to create a camouflage, blending him into his surroundings. Bolin states: “My intention was not to disappear in the environment but instead to let the environment take possession of me.” (text via twistedsifter) / photographs courtesy of Galerie Paris-Beijing
Great long exposure time lapse sky photographs by Canada-based photographer Matt Molloy. He creates this fantastic series of sky images by stacking multiple photographs on top of each other, resulting in a final photo that has a stunning painterly effect with beautiful colors.
Artist Ed Fairburn brings every day maps to life using the the chaotic patchwork of roads, trains, and rivers as the framework for his large-scale portraits. He uses meticulous ink or pencil crosshatching to create portraits hidden amongst the topographical features. See more of his work over on his Facebook. (via colossal)
