This Has To Be The Largest 3D Painting In The World

Street painting, also known as pavement art, street art, and sidewalk art, is the form of art of rendering artistic designs on pavement such as streets, sidewalks, and town squares. Street painting can be made by using impermanent or semi-permanent materials such as chalk.

The origins of modern street painting can be traced back to Britain. Pavement artists were found all over the UK and by 1890 it was estimated that more than 500 artists were making a full-time living from pavement art in London alone.

The British term for pavement artist is “screever”. The term is derived from the writing style, often Copperplate that typically accompanied the works of pavement artists since the 1700s. The term screever is most commonly cited as Shakespearean slang dating from around 1500.

The works of screevers were usually accompanied by poems and proverbs, lessons on morality, and political commentary on the day’s events. They were described as “producing a topical, pictorial newspaper of current event.”

They appealed to both the working people, who (on the whole) could not read and write, but understood the visual images; and to the educated members of the middle-classes who appreciated the moral lessons and comments. It was important for a screever to catch the eye of the ‘well to do’ and in turn attract the pennies donated for their efforts.

Street painters, (also called or chalk artists) are names these performance artists are most commonly called in the United States are called I Madonnari in Italy, because they recreated images of the Madonna. In Germany they are called Strassenmaler.

Most Famous Paintings Recreated With LEGO Blocks

Lego’s are probably the most famous toys manufactured by The Lego Group, a privately held company based in Billund, Denmark. The company’s flagship product, Lego, consists of colorful interlocking plastic bricks and an accompanying array of gears, mini figures and many other parts. Lego bricks can be assembled and connected in many ways, to construct such objects as vehicles, buildings, and even working robots. Anything constructed can then be taken apart again, and the pieces used to make other objects.

Lego began manufacturing interlocking toy bricks in 1949. Since then a global Lego subculture has developed, supporting movies, games, competitions, and six themed amusement parks. As of 2013, around 560 billion Lego parts had been produced.

The Lego Group began in the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter from Billund, Denmark, who began making wooden toys in 1932. In 1934, his company came to be called “Lego”, from the Danish phrase leg godt, which means “play well”. It expanded to producing plastic toys in 1947. In 1949 Lego began producing, among other new products, an early version of the now famous interlocking bricks, calling them “Automatic Binding Bricks”.

These bricks were based in part on the KiddicraftSelf-Locking Bricks, which were patented in the United Kingdom in 1939 and then there released in 1947. Lego modified the design of the Kiddicraft brick after examining a sample given to it by the British supplier of aninjection-molding machine that the company had purchased.

This Was The Most Awesome Pancake Ever

A pancake is a flat cake, most of time pancake is thin and round. Pancake are prepared from a starch-based batter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or a frying pan. In UK, pancakes are often unleavened, and resemble a crêpe. In America, a raising agent is used; the most common raising agent is baking powder.

The American pancake is similar to a Scotch pancake or drop scone. They may be served at any time with a variety of toppings or fillings including jam, fruit, syrup, chocolate chips, or meat.

In America, pancakes are typically considered to be a breakfast food. In Britain and the Commonwealth, they are associated with Shrove Tuesday, commonly known as Pancake Day, when perishable ingredients had to be used up before the fasting period of Lent began.

Archaeological evidence suggests that pancakes are probably the earliest and most widespread cereal food eaten in prehistoric societies. The pancake’s shape and structure varies worldwide. A crêpe is a thin Breton pancake cooked on one or both sides in a special pan or crepe maker to achieve a lacelike network of fine bubbles.

A well-known variation originating in Southeast Europe is Palacinke, a thin moist pancake fried on both sides and filled with jam, cheese cream, chocolate, or ground walnuts, but many other fillings, both sweet and savory, can also be used.

Watercolor Paintings Of “Game Of Thrones” Characters As Sloths

Watercolor is a painting method in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble vehicle.

The term “watercolor” refers to both the medium and the resulting artwork. The traditional and most common support for watercolor paintings is paper, although other supports include papyrus, bark papers, plastics, vellum or leather, fabric, wood, and even canvas.

Watercolors are usually transparent, and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with few types of filler obscuring the pigment colors. Watercolor can also be made opaque by adding Chinese white.

In East Asia, watercolor painting with inks is referred to as brush painting or scroll painting. In Chinese, Korean, and Japanese painting it has been the dominant medium, often in monochrome black or browns. India, Ethiopia and other countries also have long traditions.

Finger painting with watercolor paints originated in China.

Although watercolor painting is extremely old, dating perhaps to the cave paintings of paleolithic Europe, and has been used for manuscript illumination since at least Egyptian times but especially in the European Middle Ages, its continuous history as an art medium begins in the Renaissance.

The German Northern Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer, he painted several fine botanical, wildlife and landscape watercolors, is generally considered among the earliest exponents of the medium.

An important school of watercolor painting in Germany was led by Hans Bol as part of the Dürer Renaissance.

One Of The Best Optical Illusions You Will See In Your Life

An optical illusion (but sometimes it is called a visual illusion) is characterized by visually perceived images that differ from objective reality.

The information gathered by the eye is processed in the brain to give a perception that does not tally with a physical measurement of the stimulus source. There are three main types: literal optical illusions that create images that are different from the objects that make them, physiological ones that are the effects on the eyes and brain of excessive stimulation of a specific type (the things that stimulate the brain are: brightness, color, size, position, tilt, movement), and cognitive illusions, the result of unconscious inferences.

Perceptual constancies are sources of illusions. Color constancy and brightness constancy are responsible for the fact that a familiar object will appear the same color regardless of the amount of light or color of light reflecting from it.

An illusion of color or contrast difference can be created when the luminosity or color of the area surrounding an unfamiliar object is changed. The contrast of the object will appear darker against a black field that reflects less light compared to a white field even though the object itself did not change in color. Similarly, the eye will compensate for color contrast depending on the color cast of the surrounding area.

The Most Awesome Tattoos Ever

A tattoo is a form of body modification, made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment. Tattooing involves the placement of pigment into the skin’s dermis, the layer of dermal tissue underlying the epidermis. After initial injection, pigment is dispersed throughout a homogenized damaged layer down through the epidermis and upper dermis, in both of which the presence of foreign material activates the immune systems phagocytes to engulf the pigment particles.

As healing proceeds, the damaged epidermis flakes away (eliminating surface pigment) while deeper in the skin granulation tissue forms, which is later converted to connective tissue by collagen growth. This mends the upper dermis, where pigment remains trapped within fibroblasts, ultimately concentrating in a layer just below the dermis/epidermis boundary. Its presence there is stable, but in the long term (decades) the pigment tends to migrate deeper into the dermis, accounting for the degraded detail of old tattoos.

Some tribal cultures traditionally created tattoos by cutting designs into the skin and rubbing the resulting wound with ink, ashes or other agents; some cultures continue this practice, which may be an adjunct to scarification. Some cultures create tattooed marks by hand-tapping the ink into the skin using sharpened sticks or animal bones with clay formed disks or, in modern times, needles.

Characters From “Twin Peaks” Turned Into “The Simpsons” Characters

Twin Peaks is an American television serial drama created by Mark Frost and David Lynch.

It follows a FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper who is investigating into the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer. Its pilot episode was broadcast on April 8, 1990, on ABC.

Seven more episodes were produced, and the series was renewed for a second season that aired until June 10, 1991. The show’s title came from the name of a small, fictional Washington town in which it was set. Exteriors were primarily filmed in the Washington towns of Snoqualmie and North Bend, though additional exteriors were shot in southern California. Most of the interior scenes were shot on standing sets in a San Fernando Valley warehouse.

Twin Peaks became one of the top-rated shows of 1990 and was a critical success both in USA and in the rest of the world. It captured a devoted cult fan base and became a part of popular culture that has been referenced in television shows, commercials, comic books, video games, films and song lyrics.

Declining viewer ratings led to ABC’s insistence that the identity of Laura’s murderer be revealed midway through the second season. The series was followed by a 1992 feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, that serves as a prequel to the television series.

Scary Wave Of Plastic Dolls

A doll is a model of a human being; dolls are usually used like toys by children. Dolls have traditionally been used in many magical and religious rituals throughout the entire world, and traditional dolls made of materials like clay and wood can be found in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe.

The earliest documented dolls go back to the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece and Rome. Dolls that are used as toys were documented in Greece around 100AD.

They have been made as crude, rudimentary playthings as well as elaborate art. Modern doll manufacturing has its roots in Germany going back to the 15th century.

With industrialization and new materials like porcelain and plastic, dolls were increasingly mass-produced. During the 20th century dolls became increasingly popular as collectibles.

Many books deal with dolls tales like Wilhelmina. The Adventures of a Dutch Doll. By Nora Pitt-Taylor, pictured by Gladys Hall. Rag dolls have featured in a number of children’s stories, like the 19th century character Golliwogg in The Adventures of two Dutch Dolls and a Golliwogg by Bertha Upton and Florence K.

Upton and Raggedy Ann in the books by Johnny Gruelle, first published in 1918. The Lonely Doll is a 1957 children’s book by Canadian author Dare Wright. The story, told through text and photographs, is about a doll named Edith and two teddy bears.

Realistic Sculpture Of Magazines

Sculpture is the branch of the visual arts that operates in three dimensions and one of the plastic arts. Sculptures are made by removing some of the material and by modeling, in stone, metal, ceramics, wood and other materials but, since modernism, shifts in sculptural process led to an almost complete freedom of materials and process.

Sculpture that are made of stone survives far better than works of art in perishable materials, and often represents the majority of the surviving works from ancient cultures, though conversely traditions of sculpture in wood may have vanished almost entirely. However, almost all of the ancient sculptured ware brightly painted, and this has been lost.

Sculpture has been central in religious devotion in many different cultures, and until recent centuries large sculptures, too expensive for private individuals to create, were usually an expression of religion or politics. Those cultures whose sculptures have survived in quantities include the cultures of the Ancient Mediterranean, India and China, as well as many in South America and Africa.

The Western tradition of sculpture began during Ancient Greece, and Greece is widely seen as producing great masterpieces in the classical period.

During the Middle Ages, Gothic sculpture represented the agonies and passions of the Christian faith. The revival of classical models in the Renaissance produced famous sculptures such as Michelangelo’s David.

Modernist sculpture moved away from traditional processes and the emphasis on the depiction of the human body, with the making of constructed sculpture, and the presentation of found objects as finished art works.

Creepy Mash Up Of Sloths And “Game Of Thrones”

Sloths are medium-sized mammals that belong to the families Megalonychidae (two-toed sloth) and Bradypodidae (three-toed sloth), classified into six species.

They are part of the order Pilosa and are therefore related to anteaters, which sport a similar set of specialized claws.

Extant sloths are arboreal residents of the jungles of Central and South America, and are known for being slow moving, and hence named “sloths”. Extinct sloth species include many ground sloths, some of which attained the size of elephants.

Sloths make a good habitat for other organisms, and a single sloth may be home to moths, beetles, cockroaches, ciliates, fungi, and algae.

Sloths are members of the superorder Xenarthra, a group of mammals that appeared in South America about 60 million years ago, although at least one source puts the date at which sloths and related animals broke off from other placental mammals at about 100 Mya. Also included among the Xenarthra are anteaters and armadillos. The earliest xenarthrans were arboreal herbivores with sturdy spines, fused pelvises, stubby teeth, and small brains.

The living sloths belong to one of two families, known as the Megalonychidae (who are named two-toed sloths) and the Bradypodidae (who are named three-toed sloths). All living sloths have in fact three toes; the two-toed sloths, however, have only two fingers.

Two-toed sloths are generally faster-moving than three-toed sloths. Both types tend to occupy the same forests; in most areas, one species of three-toed sloth and one species of the larger two-toed type will jointly predominate.
