Time to give a little bit more attention to the artists in action section.

Ode to Magritte

Ode to Magritte, originally uploaded by McNeney.

Here’s someone who obviously found her inspiration in René Magritte‘s work Dangerous Liaisons. I maybe would’ve preferred a similar composition (with her back in the mirror) but it still is beautiful.

Arne Quinze – Cityscape

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

This art project by the Belgian artist Arne Quinze can be seen in Brussels (Belgium). Not only has Arne Quinze provided us with this explanatory video, but you can check out the offical photo page of Cityscape and the unofficial Flickr page as well. If you wish you can also check out the work of his design studio Quinze & Milan. And oh yes if you wondered, he is sponsored by Mini.

Pieter Brueghel (the Elder) – Tower of Babel

Tower of Babel

I always love it when artists are flooding the museums to make copies. Amongst many famous historical painters, Edouard Manet used to frequent the Louvre to make copies of the old masters. This is the painting “Tower of Babel” by Pieter Brueghel the Elder which was displayed at the Kunshistorisches Museum in Vienna. I really wonder how many days it takes to get to that stage in the painting.

Thanks to xerxespersepolis on Flickr for the photo.

Yin & Yang

Yin & Yang

I absolutely love the idea to replicate the Yin & yang-symbol in this way. This was an installation from Jarbas Lopes in Rio de Janeiro in 2006.

Joseph Murawski – Stolen Colour

Joseph Murawski

Not really a painting of the day for now as I’m getting more and more interested in seeing the passion and craftsmanship of the artists in question. The artist is Joseph Murawski and the painting he’s working on is called Stolen Colour. And surprisingly enough there’s also Joseph Murawski’s website.

Raft of the Medusa

Raft of the Medusa

This installation was an open air art project as a tribute to The Raft of The Medusa by Théodore Géricault. Don’t bother trying to look for it, as it originates from 1984 and only lasted for a couple of hours due to heavy winds. And there’s also a Lego reproduction of this painting.

Thx to user Enno de Kroon on Flickr for sharing this.

Gustav Klimt - Tree of Life

An absolute favorite amongst many and a completely unknown artist amongst many others: Gustav Klimt. This painting is called the Tree of Life which has been an inspiration to many artists: Check out this photo, this one and this one.
