I just happened across this series entitled After Master by Yin Xin. By far my faourite is the Birth of Venus. Yin has taken classic master paintings and replaced their Western subjects with Chinese ones. LOVES IT.
- Top is Birth of Venus by Boticelli.
- Dejeuner Sur L’Herbe by Manet.
- Venus and the Lute Player by Titian
- Mona Lisa by Da Vinci
Contemporary Art Week!
If anyone has an official website for this artist, let me know and I will add it here.
Love this idea: by replacing the western subjects that we are accustomed to, with Chinese ones. For me it opens the view.
Coachella ‘14: Rent a $2200 Tipi to Match Your Hipster Headdress
The first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is in the books, and yes, hipster headdresses have been spotted. This isn’t shocking — after all, the fad of misusing Native culture is still alive and when when a Victoria’s Secret model dons a feather headdress prior to the massive festival, and BuzzFeed sees fit to run an article (“16 Things You Definitely Shouldn’t Wear to Coachella”) trashing the trend.
This makes me laugh :)
This is so cool! This artist creates self-portrait/environments in her studio. Can you imagine coming to Artworks on a 2nd Friday and seeing a studio filled with giant water lilies?
Jee Young Lee (South Korean) turns her tiny studio (roughly 12 feet by 13 feet) into massive-looking works of art. 1: Nightscape 2: I’ll Be Back, 2010 3: Treasure Hunt 4: Monsoon Season 5: The Little Match Girl 6: Black Birds 7: Resurrection
