My Digital Art Of Surrealism And The Delicacy In The Dreamlike Photographs

The moon as a beacon, the calm sea that sends us messages, landscapes, and starry nights, are the protagonists of my visual creations. I’m a Delhi-based artist and surrealist adnan. I’m a young creator obsessed with sunsets and their magic. Each composition rests in the calm of pink tones. The purple skies host all the moon phases, meeting the best capacity of water, transformation.

For His Newborn Daughter’s Photoshoot, This Dad Recreated Famous Paintings He And His Wife Love

Photos from our early childhood can be charming because of how unprofessional, candid, and random they are, but they are usually not something people would like to frame. Nowadays, newborn photography is way more creative than just snapping a few photos of a crying baby with a camera, and many photographers specialize in capturing the first weeks of newborns’ lives in the most beautiful and cute way possible. There’s not much you can ask from a newborn to make your photos stand out, but if you think out of the box, the result can be amazing. Art became an inspiration for this cool dad from Brazil who decided to take newborn photography to another level.
He wanted to create one-of-a-kind memories from the precious first moments with his newborn daughter by recreating the most famous paintings in history that he and his wife love. At just 18 days old, a baby girl, Letícia, became an adorable mini version of some of the most iconic women ever painted—Mona Lisa, The Girl with a Pearl Earring, and Frida Kahlo, which represent different art movements like Baroque, Renaissance, and Surrealism.

I Made Art That Is A Tribute To Amateur Painters And The Way They Portray Birds

Being a Belgian artist, I’ve always had a taste for some surrealism. When I was browsing a local thrift shop, I noticed that lots of the amateur art, the genre Bob Ross, had simplified birds in them, shaped like a V. I decided to make a tribute by including them more prominent in a series of paintings. Also, in this series, I did the same with a fish and a house.

It has surprised me how some painters do have the technical skill to paint nature but can’t seem to be able to do animals. Therefore, they use this shortcut, which has become a world-renown template to portray birds.

My Surreal Photography Is A Reflection On A Long Battle With Depression

I began exploring photography about 12 years ago; around the same time I faced depression for the first time in my life as a way to express my state of mind. Photography allowed me to escape into a different world, the one which I was creating, a place and a story that was lead by me, not that I was led by. However, after a few months I feel deep into the arms of depression and lost all passion for the medium.

In 2014 when I had come out on the other side of the depression and was pursuing a BFA degree in Photography in San Francisco, I picked up the medium again and began to unconsciously explore themes of depression in my work.

Everything I created reflected on the years I was living with depression, inspired by psychology, surrealism and the Scandinavian landscapes that I grew up around. From there on it has been a medium I use to document our internal world focusing on themes inspired by psychology, surrealism and our unconscious mind.

My work is very personal to me, and has been a sort of therapy to combat my own emotions and experiences I’ve had over the years, yet I try to make it as anonymous as possible in order for it to speak to each spectator that will view it, so they can reflect back on their own journey in life through interacting with the internal world of the figures shown in my work.

I want my work to shine light on mental health and the darker and .

My work has been shown in galleries around the world and I hope to keep exhibiting it to the public in galleries and museum places in the future and turn it into a book in the nearest future.

Old Cement Factory Turned Into Home May Look Great From Outside, But The Interior Is Even Better

Architect Ricardo Bofill found this cement factory in 1973 and quickly realized its possibilities. It took him nearly 45 years to transform it into his home, but the end result looks breathtaking both from the outside and from the inside.

Shortly after purchasing the complex, Ricardo’s team began working on it. “Keeping our eyes moving like a kaleidoscope,” Ricardo says “We already imagined future spaces and found out that the different visual and aesthetics trends that had developed since World War I coexisted here:
1) Surrealism in paradoxical stairs that lead to nowhere; the absurdity of certain elements hanging over voids; huge but useless spaces of weird proportions, but magical because of their tension and disproportion;
2) Abstraction in the pure volumes, which revealed themselves at times broken and raw;
3)Brutalism in the abrupt treatment and sculptural qualities of the materials.”

La fábrica proves that form and function have to be dissociated; in this case, the function did not create the form. Instead, it has been shown that any space can be allocated whatever use the architect chooses (if he’s skillful enough)! Bofill currently lives and works here: “Life goes on here in a continuous sequence, with very little difference between work and leisure.”

In 1973, Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill purchased a WWI-era cement factory near Barcelona

He immediately began renovating it into his home

After years of partial deconstruction, his team started to furnish the interior as a modern living space

The exterior was fitted with vegetation, and now overflows with lush greenery

The structure has been completely transformed into a breathtaking and unique home

“The Cement Factory is a place of work par excellence” Bofill says

Every room is designed with its own special purpose, and no two look quite alike

“I have the impression of living <…> in a closed universe which protects me from the outside and everyday life”

“Life goes on here in a continuous sequence, with very little difference between work and leisure”

A variety of indoor and outdoor relaxation spots can be found throughout the entire property

Workspace is also a crucial component here because Bofill’s team uses part of La fábrica as a studio

The exterior is mostly covered by grass, but eucalyptus, palm, and olive trees also grow there

This gives the building a “mysterious aspect of romantic ruin that makes it unique and unrepeatable”

“The kitchen-dining room located in the ground floor is the meeting point for the family”

Despite its stunning transformation, the factory is a work in progress to this day

The project is constantly evolving, fitting Bufill’s lifestyle and creative visions

La fábrica will always have some work to be done, and that is part of its symbolic charm

With enough creative thinking, any building can become something new and beautiful
