“The Eggs-hibit” – Michele Baldini and his creative egg artworks.

Today I have something out of the category: "You can be successful with everything" for you again. Michele Baldini is an artist and medical student. His canvas is a pan and his tools are eggs. That's all the Mexican student needs for his art. Fried eggs as a work of art? Why not!? https://www.instagram.com/p/Bk-56lih6Hx/?taken-by=the_eggshibit In ...

Surrealism – in photography as well?

We’re all familiar with names like Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst or René Magritte and without thinking we categorize them as surrealism in art. We’ve often seen paintings like “The Persistence of Memory”, “Celebes” or “The Son of the Man” and these impressive works are stuck in our minds (or at least in my mind). Melting ...

“My art is not an answer, it is a question.” Gottfried Helnwein

Today I want to talk about an artist whom most of you know for sure: Gottfried Helnwein. This artist is known around the world for his hyper-real images which, even when taking a closer look at them, don’t look much different from photographs and in which he mainly deals with issues like pain and violence. ...

We’re all producing horrendous amounts of electronic waste. Countless electronic devices are easily disposed as they are just not repaired but replaced with new stuff!

“People Matching Artworks”

By chance I came across the photographer Stefan Draschan some days ago, a man who obviously spends a lot of time in the museums I also enjoy visiting every now and then. On his blog “People Matching Artworks”, the Austrian photographer presents photos where people form a symbiotic relationship with the pictures. Do the colors ...

Once upon a time … Fairytale images by Katarzyna and Marcin Owczarek

Fairytales have always counted among my favorite stories. No matter how grown up I became, fantasy and fairytale stuff has always kept fascinating me. The lack of all logic, endless possibilities and unlimited creativity and inspiration are probably the aspects that fascinate me so much about fairytales. Speaking animals, enchanted princes, surprising turning points we ...

From a bird’s eye view over a creative table

Taking pictures of food with your smartphone, finding the right position for your coffee or arranging flowers nicely – that’s how you best prepare the well-known “flat lays” for taking a perfect shot from above. So today I’d like to take you on a tour through the creation of nicely arranged flat lays. But what ...
