According to Vartan Garnikyan: “I guess it’s pretty obvious that I’m a big Batman fan. Though the “Starry Knight” has been going viral for all year, I’ve had some negative feedback over the years with people saying things like, “This isn’t art, you’re disgracing a masterpiece, etc.” as if I’m doing it to insult the artists. But truth be told, I see it as paying homage to them. I try to paint a new classic Batman piece every year, and each project is well thought-out, planned for a long time, and worked on for months!” Continue reading »

This is, without a doubt, the least precise map of Texas in the history of Texas. Though a less-than-stellar student in geography, French photographer Rémi Noël has been obsessed with the “America” of Jack Kerouac, Edward Hopper and Robert Frank since his early school years. And Texas, with its endless highways and fleabag hotels, is the perfect setting for Noël’s playfully poetic tableaux. The 34 images presented here were taken during four trips to the Lone Star State between 2004 and 2012. From Houston to Marfa by way of Dallas, Noël and a plastic Batman (his only travelling campanion) crisscrossed the State in search of relics of the “timeless America” that inspires Noël so.
An advocate of “old fashioned” photography by pure circumstance, Rémi Noël works exclusively in silver film; none of the photographs presented here have been electronically altered.
After all, you don’t mess with Texas.

‘Trapped Batman’ by Simon Monk, is a series of six paintings, each depicting a plastic Batman model imprisoned by a succession of everyday items such as parcel tape, string and polythene. Do these scenarios represent a great hero held at bay by gigantic paraphernalia, the playtime set-ups of a kid enamoured of super-villains or the inventions of a bored fanboy office worker playing with his stationery supplies and his desk mascot? Whichever of these instances rings true, if any, it is clear that these paintings, like Simon Monk’s previous work, represent the absurd meeting of two worlds: the fantastic and the banal.

A Batman fan has spent over $100,000 building a shrine dedicated to his hero. Kevin Silva from Indiana, U.S, keeps his 2,500-item haul in his very own basement ‘Batcave’. After he was bought a Batman lunchbox in kindergarten, Mr Silva became hooked, and since then he just hasn’t been able to resist any kind of Batman merchandise.
The electrician, who says that his favourite Batman film is The Dark Knight, has even splashed out on a $3,600 replica of Adam West’s Batsuit. But luckily for Mr Silva, his wife Janet, 50 and two children fully support his adoration for the caped crusader and have even started their own memorabilia collections. Mr Silva’s daughter Kaylaigh, 25, now collects anything Marilyn Munroe while his son Dylan, 21, is building up an impressive collection of rock band Kiss memorabilia. Continue reading »
Imagine Batman in Medieval Europe circa 1459, suited in full plate mail armor and ready to bash in the faces of evildoers with his gauntleted fists. Artist Igor Kieryluk has, with a set of concept art titled “Gotham 1459.” Granted, the Dark Knight would probably not be as acrobatic and agile in all that heavy armor (he can forget about scaling castle walls with a grappling hook). Perhaps as a wealthy lord he would be able to secure the help of a mysterious alchemist to develop something more flexible and lightweight. Continue reading »
“The Australian” reported, that a daredevil stuntman has taken the sport of skydiving to new heights after hurtling through a narrow slit in a mountainside in rural China yesterday.
Jeb Corliss, 35, launched himself from a helicopter at 6000ft, zooming through the air at 120km/h towards the imposing Tianmen mountain in Hunan Province. The stuntman’s wingsuit, which has thin membranes between the limbs and torso, allowed the 35-year-old to glide through the air while losing altitude gradually.
He soared down and through the 1300m-high mountain’s natural archway before releasing his parachute. The 30m-wide arch left the daredevil with little margin for error.
“That was one of the greatest wingsuit flights of my entire life,” Corliss said.
Wingsuit flyer Jeb Corliss of the U.S. flies past Tianmen Mountain near Zhangjiajie, Hunan province September 24, 2011. Corliss succeeded flying through the mountain’s cave on his second attemp. (Reuters) Continue reading »
