Glass Art by Dale Chihuly | Art

 

Dale Chihuly is an artist of a different nature, his skills lie in his ability to turn glass into art installations with limitless ways.The use of blown glass in ceilings, aquariums, walls, and sculptures give a new dimension to such a versatile element.

In Chihuly’s perspective: "There’s something about putting the pieces overhead, on top of the plate glass, that makes you think of the sea."

You can check his current exhibition: Chihuly: Through the Looking Glass at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts started on April 10  till August 7, 2011.

Nadim Karam Artist From Lebanon to the World | Art

Anyone who grew up in Beirut in the late 90’s would definitely remember Nadim Karam’s famous sculptures that were scattered around downtown Beirut before it was renovated. They looked odd back then, but I clearly remember asking my father to take us around in the car just to check them out every time we were around. They gave a breath of life to the once creepy and war engraved martyr square. Since then I kept hearing of Nadim Karam  and of his sculptures and works travelling around the globe. Below you will see a few of the sculptures and works he presented in the various continent.

Vincent Dubourg Ruptured Designs | Art

The first impression you would get when viewing this piece of furniture is probably mixed. There is some kind of “violent beauty” to it. French artist Vincent Dubourg’s works are like that, full of thrills and an unexpected “exploding” character. Once you look closely, you will notice the beauty of the materials and quality of work. These pieces can not go unnoticed, you either love or hate them.

The art Dubourg has presented is not the conventional art, it does not rely of form, yet on the structure and interior of each piece.

Serge Mendzhiyskogo Urban Collages | Photography

Russian Photographer Serge Mendzhiyskogo is no regular photographer. His style relies on the fact that he takes hundreds of photos of the same area and creates an amazing collage of his work.

His photos are mainly of busy cityscapes sliced and then combined in a very unorthodox fashion creating a new look for the city he depicts. Serge Mendzhiyskogo  does not have a website so I will leave you here with a selection from his magnificent work.
