Visual arts thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Wow.

Somewhere i have a great collection of photos of Iran. Looks like a great place. Too bad that it often takes crazy religious nuts to overthrow the shit we dump on other countries.

Just learned this on Mysteries at the Museum:
Tattoo machine

History

The predecessor to the tattoo machine was the electric pen invented by Thomas Alva Edison and patented under the title Stencil-Pens in Newark, New Jersey, United States in 1876. It was originally intended to be used as a duplicating device, but in 1891, Samuel O'Reilly discovered that Edison's machine could be modified and used to introduce ink into the skin, and later patented a tube and needle system to provide an ink reservoir....
Edison's electric pen was a commercial flop, but O'Reilly revolutionized tattooing with it.

about time, we have been horrified by this trash for several years now.

without a shred of hard evidence, I do believe that this bitch was under putin's guidance when she met the moron president to be.

No one ever says that chainsaw sculpture is fine art, but that's really bad even for chainsaw sculpture.

I feel bad for the live tree or snag that was used to carve Melania. Either way, it must have been a beauty.

Thanks - I wanted to post that owl, but Pinterest always gives me trouble and wants me to sign in, which I don't do, or it shades out the page. Sometimes a "reload and esc" will clear the annoyance, but not always.

Turkey's 'Microangelo' turns tiny objects into artworks

ImageImage

Any guesses what the object is?

Beautiful.

Image

I doubt my hand was ever steady enough. Any guesses what the object is?

... Some of his best-known pieces include a scene from the movie "Pulp Fiction" on the side of a piece of popcorn and the silhouette of Turkey's founder Mustafa Kemal Ataturk on a grain of rice....

"It is a blend of experience and hand discipline. I can work on a single object for up to six months." ...
I would never buy mini-art, but still :-|| .
