The Spellbinding Graphite Drawings of  Ethan Murrow

When it comes to meticulously detailed works of contemporary art, it is hard to beat Ethan Murrow for the accuracy of his stroke. Populated with classical American figures, his drawings are enigmas which possess secrets and treasures, well hidden beneath the exquisite surface.

Israeli visual artist and painter Roy Nachum (1979), believes that art should be accessible to everybody, even those who are visually impaired and for this reason his latest work “BLIND" combines painting with Braille signage.

The moment which made the artist re-contextualize his signature pixel technique into Braille, came about a few years ago, when a chance encounter with Braille signage at a museum exhibition forced him to think of new ways in which the blind could possibly experience visual artworks. Until then, he had been utilizing the idea of pixels painted one-by-one to create micro worlds that come together in order to form the pattern of a single reality or of a dream. Most of the themes of his pixelized oil paintings on canvas derive from his brain’s hard disc which is why one could characterize him as a ”digital painter”.

Nachum’s photo realistic oil paintings illustrate surrealistic images of a fantasy realm, which employ Braille and a “double vision” technique that challenges those with sight to question the limitations of their vision. All the texts comprise poems written by the artist and inspired by the paintings. via

Randy Scott Slavin is an award-winning director and surrealist photographer based in New York City. Slavin manipulated photographs he has taken of scenes across the USA into 360-degree panoramas, which he then digitally mapped as stereographic projections to create his Alternative Perspectives series

While shooting series one I came to realise that I could never know how and what would make a great Alternate Perspectives image until afterwards.

Sometimes I would be shooting a landscape that seems mundane and then in post production I found it to be amazing!
