Paintings by The Great Iman Maleki

Iman-MalekiNo, these are not photos, but actual paintings by the great Iman Maleki! Maleki was born in Teheran, Iran in 1976 and was always fascinated with the magic of painting. He was only 15 when he started to study with the greatest realist painter in Iran, Morteza Katouzian. Since then he has had many successful showings of his paintings. His most important exhibitions so far include the “Exhibition of Realist painters of Iran” in the Contemporary Museum of Art in Teheran (1999), the “Group Exhibition of KARA Studio Painters” in the SABZ galerie (1998) and the SA’AD ABAD Palace (2003). He is now considered to be the best realist painter in the world because of his unbelievable talent and painting technique. Below are the compilation of his most magnificent real paintings...

Vision of Hell by Jake and Dinos Chapman

Vision-of-Hell Like many artists of their generation, English brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman allude to an incredible amount historical reference in their work. This is particularly evident in a series (aptly) named “Hell” (1999–2000), of which portrays an apocalyptic vision of hell on Earth as war, Nazi atrocities, concentration camps, and mass executions with thousands of miniature figures taken apart and put together again. These were arranged in nine glass cases laid out in the shape of a swastika and later destroyed by the artists. Dinos Chapman is reported to have shrugged off the loss, saying, “We will just make it again… It is only art.”

Hyper Realistic Pencil Drawings

Hyper-Realistic-Pencil-Drawings Inspired by the hyper realistic paintings of the 15th-Century Flemish masters, Laurie Lipton has developed a unique, decidedly painterly graphic technique using a permanent-point pencil.
At first glance her drawings look like photographs, upon further inspection many thousands of distinct, precise, cross-hatched pencil-strokes, build up the rich and monochromatic tones.
While working exclusively in black and white (“because those are the colours of memories and phantoms” she says) her unsettling and macabre images resonate a slanted psychological realm where rooms are ghost traps filled with yearning souls, secret fears and disturbing memories……

Awesome HDR Photographic Sketches of Tokyo

Awesome-HDR-Photographic-Sketches-of-Tokyo Toshiro at HDRi Life has been walking the streets of Tokyo, photographing the people and structures of its urban scenery in HDR.
High dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allows a greater dynamic range of luminances between light and dark areas of a scene than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to shadows.
Toshiro’s photos have a unique look and angle. Shot with ultra-wide-angle and fisheye lenses, his photos present a disconcerting landscape of surreal colors and impossibly bent structures that make Japan’s megalopolis look more cold and inhospitable than it really is...
