Wood belongs to the most beloved, if we can say so, materials for artists. Of course, we got used to houses, furniture, some interior decorations made from wood, but artists often use it to create the most unusual and unexpected wood art creations.

It looks like we know everything about wood. Though, let us not be so confident about this. In the gallery below we will show you wooden art works, which fascinate and excite with authenticity of shapes, unusualness of combination with other materials, and actually the specificity of wood applications.

Design is one of the notions, which is too broad to have one unified definition. Scientists and philosophers still argue about what design is and how it works. It is interesting to mention one of the existing approaches in philosophy, explaining the design process. It is called Action-Centric Model. According to this theory there are three basic characteristics of design as a process: first explains that designers use creativity and emotion to generate ideas or design candidates, the second says that design process is improvised, and the third claims that all the stages of the design process, such as analysis, design, and implementation are inseparably linked. While philosophers still argue trying to find a true answer for what design actually is, photographers, painters, writers, and illustrators simply continue designing artful things, mostly being driven by inspiration and imagination, and not worrying about the stages of the design process or its scientific categorization.

The theme of cityscapes, which are actually nothing but city portraits, is among the favorite themes for photographers. However, in spite of its wide popularity, every cityscape always looks fresh and remains interesting for the audience. Even if we see many pictures of the same and familiar places, such as the streets of New York, every picture, if it is an artful and creative photo, will still be able to reveal some new and previously undiscovered aspects, colors, and angles. Furthermore, photographers do their best to choose the best timing and location for making pictures of the cities. As the result we can see really magnificent and impressing views of the cities at night or bird’s-eye views of cities and towns.
