Metaphorical Scenes Examine Mystery in Dreamy Paintings by Artist Duy Huynh

   10 Nov 00:00:22  |  ThisIsColossal

Vietnamese aritst Duy Huynh (previously) examines balance through nuanced scenes replete with ethereal, surreal elements: individual flowers ascend from a teapot, a chain winds around an artichoke heart, and figures float mid-air. Rendered in muted hues, the acrylic paintings are metaphorical and narrative-based, visualizing stories by connecting unsual symbols or positioning disparate objects together. The North Carolina-based artist gives the works witty names? “Thyme to Turnip the Beet” and “ReciprociTea,” for example?adding to their playful and whimsical natures. More

Takashi Murakami?s Iconic Flowers Engulf a CT Suite at a Washington D.C. Children?s Hospital

   09 Nov 00:00:24  |  ThisIsColossal

Takashi Murakami recently transformed a sterile PET/CT scan suite at Children?s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., into an uplifting garden of smiling flowers. The Japanese artist’s signature motif lines the walls and wraps around the machine itself, making the otherwise stark space less intimidating for its adolescent patients as they undergo the often lengthy and uncomfortable scanning procedure. The vibrant installation was completed in collaboration with RxArt, a nonprofit that commissions artists to create large-scale works for children’s healthcare spaces. More

Sound Artist Zimoun Channels Frenetic Movement in Expansive Kinetic Sculptures and Installations

   08 Nov 00:00:17  |  ThisIsColossal

Swiss sound artist Zimoun (previously) harnesses the power of quick, chaotic movements in his large-scale installations and kinetic sculptures. Each artwork is composed of simple materials like cardboard boxes, wooden dowels, and cotton balls, among other common objects. Zimoun assembles multiples of the same configuration?think teetering sticks and metal washers suspended on a wire?and motorizes one portion, causing them to rattle back and forth.
Because each component is made by hand, they have slight differences that prevent them from synchronizing, despite all the motors being connected to a single current. More

Immerse Yourself in the ?Bob Ross Experience,? a Permanent Exhibit Dedicated to the Beloved Painter

   08 Nov 00:00:18  |  ThisIsColossal

In the small city of Muncie, Indiana stands a three-story house with white columns lining the front stoop. Now unassuming, the brick structure formerly featured a sign at its entrance reading “WIPB TV,” denoting the camera crew inside recording beloved icon Bob Ross, who filmed more than 400 episodes of The Joy of Painting in the space from 1983 to 1994. Today, the house has been transformed to honor the legacy of the PBS artist, whose joyful manner and positivity inspired his devoted fans for more than a decade. More

Stunning Photographs Capture the International Space Station Traveling Across the Sun and Moon

   07 Nov 00:00:07  |  ThisIsColossal

Back in October, Sacramento-based photographer Andrew McCarthy staked out in his backyard to document the International Space Station on one of its trips across the sun. Using two scopes, he successfully captured the image, which frames the station in the upper left corner of the fiery mass.
Two weeks later, he repeated that process: “Yesterday morning after spending hours scouting for the right location, I set up my gear on the side of a road hoping to capture something I’ve never seen before. More

Vertical Cities Soar Into the Sky in Otherworldly Digital Paintings by Artist Raphael Vanhomwegen

   07 Nov 00:00:07  |  ThisIsColossal

Raphael Vanhomwegen describes his process as “visual brainstorming,” a technique that involves rendering his digital paintings quickly “to keep a spontaneous going-with-the-flow feeling.” The Belgium-based artist depicts vertically built cities with houses, shops, and stairwells that spring up from a hillside or body of water. Whether in technicolor, neutral shades, or moody grays, the soaring architecture is otherworldly and even foreboding as it appears to peek through surrounding fog. In many works, a few figures are perched on the balcony or a swarm of birds flies overhead. More

Awkward? Revisits the Embarrassing Moments We All Experience in an Amusing Animation

   06 Nov 00:00:13  |  ThisIsColossal

Nata Metlukh?s animation “Awkward” lives up to its name as it transports viewers right back to the last time they bumbled a handshake or didn’t properly judge the distance during a parallel park. Through uncomfortable and comical scenarios, the San Francisco-based animator captures many of the embarrassing moments even the most graceful folks experience: a man’s stomach growls loudly, another enthusiastically waves at a stranger, and a simple haircut goes awry.
