I’m really not sure what to make of these three photos below, but I know for certain it would be a hell lot easier if we knew who’s the artist behind them, and what his/her motivation was. Perhaps they were used in some sort of an ad campaign? Maybe for an art installation instead? Anyway, [...]
Wow! Never could have guessed so many of you would sacrifice their valuable time to create and share visual (animated) solutions for our Thursday’s illusion, The Breathing Square. Thanks guys! These kind of things really move me and pump my motivation in doing this what I do. You are truly an audience other publishers could [...]

They remind us that we tend to take things sitting under the horizon line for granted when looking at landscapes. The Welsh [...]
Artist Cecilia Paredes could easily be labeled as the “female Liu Bolin,” but to do so would only marginalize the talent of the Peruvian painter whose detailed, patterned paintings are worthy of being respected on their own merits.
