Utilizing the human body as a canvas, Artist John Poppleton paint stunning landscapes that glow under black lights. From summery Africa to spiral galaxy, Poppleton is able to capture various mesmerizing scenes on the curves of the human physique. Some of the paintings were drawn on more than one person. With clever lighting arrangement, these paintings are connected and form a complete scene. Another special feature of Poppleton’s bodyscape actually glow under black lights. To create paints like that, artist need to work inside a darkened studio and painted with UV body paint under the illumination of the black light, which is a very surreal even spiritual experience for artist himself.
Instead of crafting images with paint, Artist Jim Dingilian has his own unconventional way, using smoke. To create such landscape bottle with smoke, Dingilian firstly fills bottles with smoke, thus coating their inside surfaces with soot. He then reaches inside and selectively erases certain areas of the soot to revealing the landscape. By using this subtractive drawing method and smartly taking advantage of the roundness of the bottle, Dingilian successfully create multi-layered landscapes that are awe-inspiring in their subtle detail.
It looks like some people not only like to play with food, and especially like the plate food on plate! Year ago, we showed some interesting seasonal landscape on plate by Andrea Bricco, and today there is another artist Hong Yi (aka Red) who create her food art on a white plate background. The idea behind this project is to convince people “Creativity is all around us. We can get creative with anything, even with limited tools, and that like a child, we’ll see joy and fun even in ordinary, everyday items.”
Andrea Bricco, Wisconsin based photographer, grew up working for her parents in the restaurant business. It was in these restaurants that she began to build her love for food presentation. With her creativity and interest in food and photography, she has took some pleasant food photograph, like the seasonal landscapes on dinner plates in today’s post. Each plate signifies a different season – Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. Leaves falling, snow piling up, plants growing and the sun shining, just look too good to eat.
