By combining some unique styles and technical, self-taught artist Justin Gaffrey created his own artistic voice with his eye-catching landscapes and floral creations. Working primarily with palette knives and a countless assortment of acrylic paints, Gaffrey manages to produce works of breathtaking beauty and complexity. His technique might best be described as “sculpting with paint”, which creates a lifelike and engaging depiction of an environment that invites the viewer to reach out and touch it.
Born Peter Gibson, the street artist chose his nickname “Roadsworth” as he states, “Where Wordsworth is a poet of words, Roadsworth is a poet of roads.” Roadsworth began painting the streets of Montreal in the fall of 2001. Initially motivated by a desire for more bike paths in the city and a questioning of “car culture” in general. The artist has cleverly modified roads, sidewalks, parking lots and any other publicly visible asphalt surface he can transform with paint. In the fall of 2004, Roadsworth was arrested for his nocturnal activities and charged with 53 counts of mischief. Luckily, due to strong public support, Roadsworth was released.

Usually 3D painting only looks 3D when you view the painting from certain angle, while the 3D painting we presented here remains 3D from any angle. Created by Singapore-based artist Keng Lye who use a technique originated by Riusuke Fukahori, these painting looks so real like different animals actually swimming in water. To create such painting, Lye needs to pour resin into a bowl and then paint on top of it with acrylics, layer by layer which is extremely labor-intensive and requires utmost patience and attention to detail.

Most of us would be content with a simple digital camera, but not Bernardi, the photo-realistic still life painter from Italy, who can realistically recreate things around him with his oil work. The most amazing part of Bernardi’s work is his ability to elevate the mundane to the fantastical through intricate attention to detail, giving “weight and depth to translucent objects, creating drama in the overlapping forms and infinite reflections that they create. You can find many great works from Bernardi’s online gallery, and below is our favorite series – candy.
