I Use Traditional Persian Rugs As Canvas To Spray-Paint Female Portraits (61 Pics)

I’ve been painting in the streets for 12 years. In 2015, during a residency in Barcelona, I started using the traditional Azulejos ceramic design that we often see in Spain, Portugal, and Maghreb in my work. I started including these colored patterns in my murals, and it became my trademark as a street artist. This led me to great interest and study of traditional crafts of different cultures around the world and their symbols. I searched for a way to link traditional arts and crafts to my paintings and urban art.

Carpets are one of the most ancient, visually rich, and meaningful traditional arts that can be found. They are traditionally weaved by women, which is why I chose to represent women’s portraits on them.

My, that is beautiful. Especially when you know it’s just sprayed on a rug!1ReplyView More Replies…View more comments

I kept the idea of painting on a carpet in mind for a year before jumping into it. Thinking about whether it’s possible or not, how to do it, which materials I could use… Then, I finally tried to apply my street art techniques to the carpet as if it was a wall. I painted with spray paint, and it worked perfectly! The face merged into the traditional pattern of the carpet as I used transparency and shading techniques.#2

Carpets, as well as human portraits, are composed symmetrically. I try to find the magical symmetry between the two elements. I see something truly beautiful in the center medallion of the carpet which often gets positioned in the place of the third eye of the face.#4

I consider myself a spiritual person; I meditate and perform a ritual before each piece before entering a flow state of painting. I am not entitled to mistakes as I’m painting directly on a valuable rug—each line and movement has to be perfect.

It results in a great mix of contemporary urban arts with ancient traditional craft and culture. I love this duality: by adding a human element to a traditional carpet, these works touch our deep being, our universal consciousness, they question our cultural identity which is currently cannibalized by standardization and mass culture.#6

Amazing Concrete Micro-Homes by Fala Atelier

The architecture studio Fala Atelier has built six micro apartments around a communal garden in Porto, Portugal.
The Portuguese studio renovated a pair of granite buildings to create a row of five 30-square-metre houses next to a slightly larger single-family home, all of which share similar interior design, materials and finishes.closevolume_off

Each house has a living space on the ground floor lit by a pair of shuttered windows, one of which acts as a door, with a staircase leading to a sleeping area that is placed above a bathroom.

“This project explains our architectural ambition: we want to create independently of the limits imposed by the original building and the starting conditions” explains the studio.

People Share ‘Accidental Wes Anderson’ Photos Of Real-Life Locations That Belong In His Movies

There’s an interesting photo hunt going on online, which gets even more interesting if you’re a fan of the visual style seen in the iconic movies by director Wes Anderson.

I’m talking about the subreddit called ‘Accidental Wes Anderson,’ in which users upload the pics taken all around the world of buildings, sceneries or even people who seem to belong in the next Wes Anderson flick. And surprisingly, there are quite a few spots from North Korea to Ukraine, that compete for the attention of the famous director.

Maybe there’s a spot like this someplace near you? Then don’t hesitate to share your photos in the comments!

Cats Created Using Hundreds Of Pen Strokes By Luis Coelho

<iframe style=”width:120px;height:240px;” marginwidth=”0″ marginheight=”0″ scrolling=”no” frameborder=”0″ src=”//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=tf_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=delaramartdes-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B07T86S72Q&asins=B07T86S72Q&linkId=53af984ca175a7fff8d96b98aee33a3e&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffff”>

Luis Coelho is an artist from Portugal who describes himself as a “slow art illustrator and sweetness sorcerer”. He creates beautiful and intricate ink illustrations of cats that will surprise you with their incredible level of detail.

The artist has been drawing from a very young age: “I remember that my brother, which is a few years older than me, would bring some Superhero comics into the house and I would absolutely destroy them by drawing on top of those fantastic images with any pen that I could find,” says Luis. “After generating many frustrating moments for my brother, I eventually understood that it was not a cool thing to do and so I started drawing in blank sheets of paper like everyone else.”

More info: purr.in.ink | Instagram | Facebook

However, cats weren’t the first things that the artist began drawing. “The first drawing I am conscious about being honestly proud to do, was Superman. I don’t know what age I had, I just know that I still could not read. Nevertheless, this does not mean that I’ve been drawing all my life in a continuous way. Two times in my life I stopped drawing for several years.”

When asked why he chose cats for most of his drawing, Luis said it’s because there are a lot of cats living on the streets in his homeland. “They will seem to pick a spot and always return there. That happens simply because in that place, people feed them,” says the artist. “Cats also have done that with my art. They found a place where people feeds them. The first cat I drew when I was already exploring this hatching technique was because my brother in law was always asking me to draw cats. One day, after hearing his request so many times, I decided that I would finally draw one.”

“When I posted it on Instagram I noticed an unusual amount of excitement around that drawing. With time I eventually understood that if I had a chance to earn my life as an artist, I would need to embrace my cat spot. And that’s what I’m doing.”

The drawings usually take the artist hours to complete and he says he tends to go into a meditative state when creating them. Luis even says that he probably wouldn’t be able to draw these kinds of drawings if it were not for this state.


Luis says that drawings in A4 sheets take him between 10 and 60 hours to complete. “Lately, I think I’m managing to always stay under 20 hours but I definitely still need to get better at this time control thing,” says the artist.

Of course, cats aren’t the only animals the artist likes to draw.

Check out more of Luis’ works in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

These Origami Lampshades Are Carefully Handcrafted With An Eco-Conscious Approach

Simply crafted with a handmade origami technique that uses high-quality paper, Orikomi lamps are a statement of love for the planet.

Orikomi brand was created in November 2013 and it’s based in the sunny Lisbon, Portugal.

Two architects, Ana Morgado and Carmo Caldeira, are responsible for the development of the Orikomi products. They use the geometry of origami as inspiration, blending the paper folding art with lighting and focusing on its environmental concern.

Orikomi lampshades have a positive ecological impact due to the fact that they are handmade, have low energy consumption (promoting the use of energy-saving light bulbs) and at the end of their life cycle are completely recyclable. These products make a statement as an alternative lighting solution with low impact on the environment but with a high impact aesthetically.

The brand follows the principle that design should be economical and affordable, being paper a material that fulfills these requirements, but also, perfectionist and ambitious, especially considering the importance of lighting to guarantee spatial interior quality.

Despite its complex construction, it is extremely easy to hang and suitable to light up a variety of spaces at home.

It is an extremely versatile product, available in several models and colors, allowing innumerable possible conjugations.

At the online shop, besides the big range of plain pastel colors, you can find unique patterns that are the result of partnerships between Orikomi and other designers, which diversify the collection. Orikomi also has 3 available sizes of lampshades to match all type of rooms and needs.
