What_My_Hands_Doing_by_artist_Romo_Jack_2015_01
Romo Jack describes himself as a “creative worker” who explores new ways of expressing himself and devising new forms of art. In one of his projects called #whatmyhandsdoing, he captures scenes of his hands engaging in various activities — including painting, cooking, playing with board games and catching rainbows. “Just like how my eyes are always seeing from the time I wake up from bed to the time I fall back asleep, my hands are also doing something every second,” says the 22-year-old from Jakarta, Indonesia. “There might be thousands, even millions of things our hands have got to do.”

Right on point for Vegas!

New Stunning Paintings Made On Incredibly Tiny Surfaces by Turkish Artist Hasan Kale

New_Stunning_Paintings_Made_On_Incredibly_Tiny_Surfaces_by_Turkish_Artist_Hasan_Kale_2015_01

Bigger is not always better, as Turkish artist Hasan Kale proves with his incredibly tiny works of art measuring smaller than a fingernail. With astonishing precision, the artist uses a fine-tipped brush to cover the surfaces of nuts, seeds, and matchsticks with images that are amazingly detailed for their minuscule scale. Despite his unconventional canvases, Kale’s painting style is elegantly timeless, with an aesthetic similar to that of the neoclassical art movement. Vivid landscapes and stately figures—many of which represent Istanbul or aspects of Turkish culture—come to life on the miniature surfaces of everyday objects, calling attention to items that often go unnoticed in daily life.

Figurative Wooden Sculptures by Artist Stefanie Rocknak

Figurative_Wooden_Sculptures_by_Artist_Stefanie_Rocknak_2015_01

Stefanie Rocknak’s pieces are slightly larger than lifesize, torsos and heads twisted into intense expressions that can be seen in both the face and body. Each work is incredibly serious, the pupil-less eyes seeming to look right through the viewer. The Swimmer is one of Rocknak’s most active pieces, her subject carved into an environment of rough waves, fighting for a breath while they are caught mid-stroke. Details can be seen down to the swimmer’s wristwatch and veins, palpable adrenaline coursing through the subject’s body.
