PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES “WATER BENDER” TURNING LIQUID INTO SCULPTURES BETWEEN HER HANDS

Posted on 0

Photographer Captures “water Bender” Turning Liquid Into Sculptures Between Her Hands

As a professional photographer and self-described “visual storyteller,” Kyle Re Creative is skilled in capturing memorable moments. While he primarily specializes in wedding and lifestyle photography, he also excels in photo edits, as apparent in his series of mind-bending water manipulations.
In this collection of photographs, Kyle Re Creative reimagines abstract splashes of water as recognizable, figurative forms. Captured using a fast shutter speed and then digitally reworked on Photoshop, each shot shows a model seemingly bending and distorting the liquid between her hands. As she concentrates on the water, distinctive shapes appear to form before our eyes. From the profile of a face to a magnificent horse, the figures explored by the artist give viewers a glimpse into his wild imagination.

JAY-Z’S NEW VIDEO SUBVERTS RACIST CARTOONS

Jay-Z’s video for “The Story of OJ”, the opening track of his new album 4:44, is a powerful commentary on the history of race relations in America. The animated clip uses vintage-style cartoons to explore old black stereotypes and their prevalence today – much like the famous montage from Spike Lee’s Bamboozled – while discussing culture, generational wealth, and transforming success into stability in a system pitted against black people.
The statement chorus of the song traces the political struggles of black people in America – from colourism that persists in societies today, through to the classifications of slaves years ago – as Jay-Z raps, “Light nigga, dark nigga, faux nigga, real nigga. Rich nigga, poor nigga, house nigga, field nigga. Still nigga, still nigga.” Arguably blurring the distinction between the historically racist use of the N-word and its modern re-appropriated use within black communities, Jay-Z uses “The Story of OJ” to sit amongst the stereotypes his community faces and offer advice and solutions.

In the video, directed by Jay-Z himself with Mark Romanek, the rapper employs a host of racially-charged caricatures and references to blackface and minstrelry to break silences on topics of slavery, therapy, and money. Here are a few of the most important ones from the video.

Colourful Handmade Paper Collages By Kike Congrains

Using glue, scissors, a knife, coloured paper and old magazines, these artworks are handmade, with each having a unique personality and style. From a heavy metal-inspired tabby to a rock chick shorthair, the collages are guaranteed to make you smile.
Kike Congrains‘ previous works include sea-creatures, pop cultural characters and vintage imagery. When speaking about his inspiration, he recently told Peru This Week magazine: “Collage is an art form that doesn’t need previous experience or any training in art whatsoever, everybody has done one in some moment of their life even if they didn’t know they were making a collage.”

ART SHOW AT THE MUSEUM OF SEX

Art Show At The Museum Of Sex
Amanda Charchian

 

The Museum of Sex will showcase over 20 emerging female artists and never-before-seen artworks from across the various disciplines. From Instagram and GIF platforms to textile and photography, these artists bring a fresh, eclectic, and unconventional approach to sexuality. Over the last two years, art by women addressing the naked female body has intrigued our readers on Creators. When we publish articles about women doing the intimate things that women do alone, or female artists’ perspectives on the nude, our audience takes notice, presses “Like,” shares our stories with friends, and starts dialogues across social media platforms. From the devious illustrations of Polly Nor to the pinup sketches of Natalie Krim to Amanda Charchian’s naked photographs of her girlfriends, women making art for themselves and for other women has become impactful, personal, and political.

Posted on 0

Lucy Sparrow’S All-Felt New York City Bodega

Nestled beneath the Standard, High Line in New York City’s Meatpacking District, Lucy Sparrow’s all-felt bodega is the first store of its kind. Thousands of products have been created for the space, which duplicates the classic New York bodega with each item a product of the artist’s handiwork. This rendition is called “8 ‘Till Late,” following similar projects from the artist, and takes its host city as one of its biggest inspirations.
