Challenges of the Street Art

Balancing between vanguard art movement and one of the manifestations of illegal behavior, street art is something you would not easily fit into the limits of the traditional art perception and public understanding. With distinct style, unique medium, and a noble goal of making dull city streets brighter, more colorful and aesthetically more attractive, street art itself does not need any third-parties’ recognition or approval for its existence. It has already become part of the urban life; it has already rooted in the asphalt and concrete of cities; and it has even already yielded many and many splendid pieces of street art: fresh, attractive, provoking, challenging, bold, and inspiring.

Mind-Blowing Aerial Photographs

In my opinion, there is no better aerial photographer than Yann Arthus Bertrand. His volume of work is incomparable, and he has an incredible eye for the interesting and provocative. Below you will find a small sample of his amazing work.

Daily Inspirations no. 164

The particular branch of photography, where artists, such as Dirckx Lieven, experiment with capturing liquids and especially falling or flying liquids, has always attracted much attention of the public. There is really something magical or fantastic in seeing the drops or splashes of water or paint captured still on the picture. However, liquid photography is only one of many aspects of photography, illustration, and other forms of modern digital art we are devoting our daily inspirational sets to. We welcome here all the design professionals, amateurs, and just fans of visual design and graphics – Cruzine magazine has many outstanding art works stuffed with inspiration, interesting ideas, experience, and knowledge to share with its readers.

Beautiful Planet – Oh I so want to go to the ISS!

I for one am very pleased that the astronauts on the ISS (heroes in my humble opinion) keep sharing images of our beautiful planet with the rest of us. The privilege of viewing earth from space is only granted to a very select few. However, thanks to these images, it is almost like we get to go up there ourselves. For that I am truly grateful to the Astronauts, NASA and ESA. So if anyone, from any of the space programs, is reading this – From the bottom of my heart: Thank you!

Digital Photography of Beautiful Earth

Digital photography is a form of photography that uses an array of light sensitive sensors to capture the image focused by the lens, as opposed to an exposure on light sensitive film. The captured image is then stored as a digital file ready for digital processing (colour correction, sizing, cropping, etc.), viewing or printing.

Photography of Live “As Is”

In contrast to photographs, made in photo studios with arranged light, prepared backgrounds, and trained models, street or daily life photography tends to reflect the live on the “as is” basis, simply portraying the true faces of life without hiding its drawbacks under the layer of makeup or focusing at the positive aspects only. After all, art is not only about beauty, it is also about truth, sincerity, and honesty, whatever forms it appears at. We, at Cruzine, would like to show our audience all the diversity of modern art and photography in particular. That is why we are publishing today a separate gallery of photographs, featuring life. Yes, it may sound too ambitiously, but that is actually what you will see below – the life in its entire diversity.
