Indeed, the motto of the Olympic Games, which is translated into English as “Faster, Higher, Stronger”, can fit pretty nicely the modern architecture, which generates the most audacious ideas and immediately realizes them, creating stronger constructions, higher buildings and doing all that much faster than ever before. Whether it is an impressive skyscraper in glass and concrete, or a magnificent steel tower, or a bridge – the monuments of modern architecture earned their worldwide popularity and fame thanks to their technical advancements, unusual yet excellent design, and skillful, obviously artistic, implementation.

Not everything is what it seems to be, and Chema Madoz (Madrid 1958) ensures it’s evidence. Hidden among daily things arises new worlds. New dimensions led by metaphor alters the perception of an immediate reality. The absurd, the paradox, the humor – why not the wittiness – are to be found at the photographers studio. The idea commences it’s process of superiority of the object and establishes a given discontext. The irony with which madoz assaults recognizible objects creates a relationship with viewers that leads to paths of a parallel universe.
You know those movie scenes where the recently deceased turns up at the Pearly Gates in Heaven, clouds misting, dressed in white, met by St Peter, harps playing, big gates swinging open? This is what is on the other side of those gates when the clouds divide. Noosa in Queensland at its outrageous Noosa holiday house best. All that is needed to enjoy this house is a colourful bikini and a killer body and lots of ice for the drinks. Maybe I get a killer body when I die. Link for the sale listing here while it lasts.

Desert life… Yes, no matter how ironically or impossible it may sound – there is life in deserts. Furthermore, the diversity of desert life may impress, astonish and inspire – and all at the same time. Deserts may seem dead for people who have never seen them before, but it is only an optic illusion. Once you tune your vision, a desert will show you an amazing world: interesting, very special, and, definitely, full of life. Of course, desert life differs from that of a crowded city, rainforest, or savannah – it is silent, slow, calm, secret, almost invisible, and often shocking, but still it does exist. Even the desert itself lives, increasing its dominion meter by meter…

Within our today’s set of 33 inspirational images we want to share with our readers the excitement and admiration with a particular type of art, where a human face is a canvas, mascara and lipstick are the tools, and artist’s imagination is the key source of creative inspiration. The photographs by Viktoria Stutz, Denise and Ulf Krentz, presented in this showcase amongst other visual works, make it pretty clear that makeup is art, just like painting, photographing, or sculpture is. It has all the features of creative art – unusual and conceptual approach, purpose, belonging to the spiritual rather than practical realm, and uniqueness of idea realization through colors, shapes, and textures.
