Optical Illusion Drawing on Palm by Luca Luce

You are probably already familiar with optical illusion drawing. In most of time, you saw those drawing on the paper, floor or walls. However, Italian makeup artist Luca Luce use a totally different canvas to make his mind-blowing drawing even special. With the help of perspective, shadow placement, and a photorealistic style of drawing, he produces surreal, three-dimensional artwork on his own palm. Using his wild imagination, Luce depicts anything from tiny creatures living underneath his skin to a tiny, four-eyed face emphatically talking to him or a little pet mice laying in center of his hand. Whatever the subject matter may be, Luce’s artistic expertise convincingly creates these whimsical scenes. Here are some of our favorite and find more on Luce’s instagram page.

Fantastic 3D Human Collage Encased within Layers of Glass

Brooklyn-based contemporary artist Dustin Yellin just released his new series of work “Psychogeographies”, a collection of life-size humanoid figures. Like specimens trapped under a microscope, these alien-looking sculptural paintings are painstakingly pieced together using thousands of individual drawings, paintings and magazine or encyclopedia clippings that are then stacked between vertical planes of glass to render three dimensional forms. The whole process to create these works is quite labor-intense. According to the artist, the current seriers of 12 figurines took him 6 years to complete. Take a look at these stunning 3D collage, if you want to view them on field, they are on permanent display at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.

Goldfish Salvation: Realistic Goldfish Painted Between Layers of Resin

Riusuke Fukahori, the Japanese artist continued to amaze us with his second solo show – Goldfish Salvation in Joshua Liner Gallery. In this collection, Fukahori will present a new series of his popular resin works, acrylic on wood pieces, and his first video work. In his show statement, he explains how these creatures came to inspire him “In the aquarium, similar to human society, there is a story of birth and death. As long as they live, these goldfish will continue to soil the fish tank, and if not changed, the water will only get tainted leading to death for all the goldfish. This is quite true for the human species as well… The goldfish that I paint are not really goldfish, but representations of people. I feel as though the fish tank is only foretelling what would happen to the earth in the future. We as human beings are the main source polluting our own air we breathe.”

Riusuke Fukahori’s “Goldfish Salvation” will be on view at Joshua Liner Gallery in New York from November 19th through December 19th, 2015.
