Combining the Contrasts

Today, the showcase gallery of images at Cruzine magazine is really special, uncommon, and deeply conceptual. The collection of photographs you are offered represent a fascinating combination of contrasts. Uncommonly thinking and talented photographers are in the constant search of genuine and unique moments worthy of capturing with a camera, or they seek for the angles to show us the ordinary things in an alternative way. Here, within the scope of this showcase, they successfully managed to artfully combine contrasting colors, as white and black, or red and the shades of gray; shapes, as circles and squares; and textures, for example, smooth and wavy, or with folds and holes.

His portfolio bursts with the spur of the moment,never to be captured again images of some of the worlds most recognized models and celebrities. Bonds magic is in showing the flip side to the persona the viewer grows used to seeing.

Daily Inspirations no. 110

Creative souls are unique and unpredictable: some of the artists find inspiration in relaxation and peace, while others are motivated to create in the moments of intensive emotional outburst (either positive or negative). Still some others explore the works already created to find the internal desire and awake the ability to produce art. We believe Cruzine magazine can be equally interesting and helpful in providing inspiration to all the creative people: 33 images offered within the daily inspirational sets can give you the feeling of tranquility, as well as provoke strong emotions. These images are the experience and knowledge, which modern creative designers want to share with the wide audience, with you. So, observe them, dive into them, get inspired, and create!

Beer Labels – the Unexpected Art Medium

If you think that art can only be found in the galleries, museums, and art exhibitions, be ready to reconsider this because we are here to show you that art can, actually, be found literally everywhere; sometimes even in the most unexpected places, such as… on the beer bottles. Well, why not? Why cannot a beer label be an example of visual art, if it was created with inspiration, conceptual design, fine aesthetic feel, and distinctly expressed message to those, who will spend a couple of seconds observing the label before opening up a bottle and shifting the attention from the container to the content?
