Enchanting Ballpoint Pen Art by Ler huang

on Behance, Facebook

Taiwan based artist Ler Huang creates these experimental drawings with just using a ballpoint pen. Her drawing mainly focuses on fashion illustrations, and female models. The main part of her art is transitions in subjects and geometry usage in her compositions. The illustrated figures look very realistic and I like how she layers the characters by using different colors. Check out the Ler Huang’s outstanding artwork.

Paired Photographic Images by William Farges _( nudity)

on Behance

Words from French photographer William Farges: “I did this work on the suggestion. My goal was to inspire me photographic style nude, while trying to renew. I first decided to focus on off-field taking part, not as the end of the picture, but as the beginning of the spectator’s imagination. Then, the more I walked this path, the more I had the urge to go further and create unreal body, chimeras bringing us to a state of conscious animal, contradictory and tortured. While on a work being polysemic, everyone sees what he wants. However, my intention is not to cultivate individual fantasies, but a reflection on the relationship between body and mind. The strength of my work is I think in its suggestive appearance. Indeed, by combining two images taken at two different times and without artifice, without editing, the viewer unconsciously accepts it and sees my body perception.”

The Heavy Metal of Marilyn Minter

on Artsy

In visceral and gaudy paintings, photographs, and video works, Marilyn Minter examines the relationship between the body, cultural anxieties about sexuality and desire, and fashion imagery. Minter is best known for glossy, hyperrealistic paintings in enamel on metal that depict closeups of makeup-laden lips, eyes, and feet—a liquid-dripping gold-toothed smile or a pair of glistening high heels splashing in metallic fluid. Strut (2004–5) portrays a muddied foot in a gem-encrusted high heel. Minter also photographs body parts seen through panes of wet glass, captured from characteristically dynamic and provocative angles that suggest the seductive, disturbing nature of glamour.

Ethereal Portraits by LakormisShowcase Horrific Beauty

on Behance, Facebook

Beauty is a treasured thing in our culture, and Turkish artist Merve Morkoç, aka Lakor mis, turns this ideal on its head. At first glance their paintings are of seemingly young, glowing-skinned models, but a longer gaze reveals that these subjects all have something seriously wrong with them. Coupled with their well-coiffed hair are fantastical disfigurations that you’d see in a horror film. Warped eyelids, caved in faces, and rashes exist on these young women.

Any sort of pleasant response you initially had is probably gone, and the works are like a train wreck that you can’t look away from. The strange details are intriguing, and it speaks to Morkoç’s expert handling of the medium that they are easily able to fool us into thinking something that’s repulsive is actually beautiful.

Ashley Mackenzie: The Philosophical Illustrations

artist on Tumblr

Ashley Mackenzie tackles complex questions about the relationship between mind and body, creating conceptual, illustrative works that stand at the cross-section of the philosophy of the mind and neuroscience. “As our knowledge of the brain becomes more comprehensive, it seems like the idea of the soul exists only in the gaps of our understanding,” Mackenzie writes on her website. Bodies melt like pools of liquid in these placid, sparsely-detailed illustrations as they visualize the inner workings of the mind.

Isaac Cordal - Cement Eclipses. Chiapas, Mexico. 2013

artisr on tumblr

Isaac Cordal was in Mexico last year where he could give some new perspectives to his project Cement Eclipses. The Spanish artists so get inspired by the local folklore to stage his miniature sculptures in the streets of cities and villages located in Chiapas. Next to this, he also collaborated with young students of the Escuelita Zapatista. Together, they collected clay from the paths of the country and shaped some figurine then leaved to their own destiny. Here after, you’ll find pictures taken back from his South-American trip by Isaac. Lastly, let’s remind a book bringing together photographs of the installations he made last year in Nantes has been published. You’ll find it on Lalibrairie.com.
