Bringing Museum Paintings Out Into The Streets: The Outings Project!

outings-6

I’m going to start this post off with this statement: “This is cool as shit!” Yeah, that’s my official opinion on this. I’m witty like that. Anyway, on with the post! Artist and filmmaker, Julien de Casabianca, was inspired to bring an Ingres painting of a female prisoner, which was tucked away into a corner […]

Though the writing is a little rough (I wrote this in 2011), it doesn’t diminish the beauty of these works.

An intriguing artist, with an equally intriguing form of art! All hail Artist Daniel Watson! Alien or Citrus? Both. When you look at this work, what do you see? I see an amazingly detailed work that looks to be molded of clay and worked with tools to get the shape and depth. Then maybe it’s […]
