Chinese Vlogger Transformed Herself Into Mona Lisa

There is a reason why they are called makeup artists. If you ever doubted the artistic value of makeup before, Chinese vlogger He Yuhong will change your mind with her stunning recreations of historic works.

Ms. He, 26, posts her work on her Miaopai video channel, and recent uploads of her transforming her face into masterpieces by Leonardo De Vinci, Mona Lisa in particular, have proved a massive hit.

She has gone massively viral on Chinese social media, with her video being viewed more than 20 million times!

BEHOLD!

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

David Who?

I’m not questioning the artistic merit of Michelangelo’s David, the sculpture is an unquestionable timeless masterpiece. But this sculpt of Marvel’s Venom is pretty cool!

By now it’s clear that soon every movie, TV show, and artistic endeavour is going to be tied to a Marvel comic book property, so let’s put Venom in Italy’s famed Galleria dell’Accademia as well.

It still blows my mind that Nicholas J. Brown (aka YouTube’s LoreCraft) only took up sculpting about a year ago.

In all seriousness, comparing Michelangelo’s David was a bad joke.

You cannot compare clay and marble.

David’ sculpture is not only so detailed, carving out a whole slab of marble without a single stone vein running out of place is a miracle if not a testament of amazing skill in itself.

Regardless, good job Nicholas J. Brown.

The Eye of Binhai

Nobody likes to be watched while they’re trying to read a book, but we’re willing to make an exception if it means getting to visit this stunning library in China, because as you can see below, the incredible structure has a giant spherical auditorium in the middle that looks just like a giant eye.

Located in the Binhai Cultural District In Tianjin, the five-story library, which was designed by Dutch design firm MVRDV in collaboration with the Tianjin Urban Planning and Design Institute (TUPDI) and has since been dubbed “The Eye of Binhai”, covers 34,000 square metres and can hold up to 1.2 million books.

Taking just three years to complete, the library features a reading area on the ground floor, lounge areas in the middle sections and offices, meeting spaces, and computer/audio rooms at the top.

I’m not sure how much reading I’d get done though ’cause I’d be far too busy marvelling at the awesome architecture. But distracting or not, the design is stunning!

The Artphabet

A few days ago Cess, a young studio located in Madrid focused on 3D work, released ‘The Artphabet’ for their ’36 days of type’ project.

This collection is a tribute to the most famous modern and contemporary artists in a form of an alphabet. Each letter represents different iconic artist focusing on one of their most famous works of art.

For example, the soup can by Andy Warhol for the letter ‘A’ or a brick wall with the iconic Balloon Girl graffiti by Banksy for the letter ‘B’. Although some of the letters doesn’t match the artist name, it’s still pretty awesome.

Below few of them:

Andy Warhol

Bansky

Gaudí

Robert Indiana

Jeff Koons

Okuda

Salvador Dalí

Takashi Murakami

Wesselmann

Nice job!

When is the media going to stop giving assholes so much attention?

And here we go AGAIN.

If you missed the latest extra-large fart bubble of sad insanity that came out of Kanye West’s mouth during his visit to TMZ, then might I suggest you keep on missing it and watch a much less gross and much more satisfying video by clicking here. But if you insist….

To get attention for his new albums and his self-published “philosophy” book on Twitter, Kanye has declared his love for his brother Donald Trump, told us that he loves the brain of Black Lives Matter hater Candace Owens, and did a 2-hour interview.  But he really went for it when he dropped into the offices of TMZ

Kanye said that since slavery lasted for 400 years, the slaves must’ve made the choice to remain slaves. Strangely enough, Kanye didn’t also say that Jewish people willingly went to concentration camps because they wanted a free vacation? He’s probably saving that for his next visit.

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years?! That sounds like a choice. Like, you was there for 400 years and it’s all y’all? It’s like we’re mentally in prison. I like the word prison because slavery goes too direct to the idea of blacks. So prison is something that unites us as one race. Blacks and whites being one race. We’re the human race.”

Later in the newsroom, Kanye asked everyone if they think he’s thinking freely, and that’s when TMZ’s Van Lathan became a hero by trying to get through to him by feeding him a potent dose of WAKE THE FUCK UP:

The train wreck of 2018 didn’t end there.

Kanye already admitted that he had an opioid addiction during his breakdown of 2016, and he told everyone that he got addicted after getting lipo. He said that he got the Kartrashian special, because he didn’t want them to call him fat….

So according to the logic of Kanye, slavery is a choice, but lipo is something he was forced to do? GOT IT!! This guy is obviously not well.

Stop asking him questions about shit he clearly knows nothing whatsoever about because an opinion about something based on ignorance is worse than having no opinion at all.

You know, I only have room for one delusional artist in my life, and she actually has talent:

Jokes aside, the American trash culture scares me! 

The importance they give to these kind of uneducated egotistical lunatics is alarming… That’s exactly how they ended up with their current President!

Metaphorical Sculptures Of Social Media Giants

It is an undeniable fact that social media is an enormous part of our everyday lives.

Wherever you go, there’s a chance you’ll see at least one person on their phone, scrolling through all the latest things that happened to the people he knows.

This American artist decided to turn this craze into art with a pinch of irony.

Ben Fearnley made a project called “Social Media Reality,” it’s a set of conceptual 3D illustrations that use visual metaphors to simply sum up social apps and play on the way in which they are used. 

Unfortunately true!

Prism

Taking a look on a second-hand book store, I found this jewel: PRISM International (a magazine that looks like a small book).

PRISM international is a quarterly magazine out of Vancouver, whose mandate is to publish the best in contemporary writing and translation from Canada and around the world.

Writing from PRISM has been featured in Best American Stories, Best American Essays and The Journey Prize Stories, amongst other noted publications.

The issue I found Love & Sex is from 2014 and is full subtle, sexy poetry and short humorous pieces that were so addictive that took me less than two hours to read every single page of it.

In “My Montreal Vagina,” “Petrified,” and “Red Mailboxes,” author Billeh Nickerson highlights the humour and melancholy intrinsic in human relationships, walking us through doctors’ offices, lonely hotel rooms, and empty streets.

This is the type of publication that inspires all type of writers.

The piece below was written by an author that goes by the name of Marypeace :

Friends for life?
Friends for fuck?
Friends for anything but:
But: honesty
But: transparency
But: vulnerability.
Friends for a moment;
Friends for a while;
One’s youthful body
Beckons glaring eyes…
Friends for texting
For chatting, for emailing
How do you get friends
Who long for depth,
Discovering wisdom
Glowing smiles; which
Come about with sincere hugs?
Life style friends?
For a while with sculpted bodies.
Internet friends?
Just for one night stands.
At work friends?
If competition is absent.
Glamorous friends?
If credit card is black.
Sexual friends?
If pornography is a must.
Friends forever
If checking account is large.
Friendship a dead concept,
May rest in peace!
(copyright of the author)

I love this magazine so much!
