WARNING: This is NOT just another picture of war. This photo is from 2 days ago in Gaza. A father lost an innocent son who was playing soccer on the beach. Our Instagram-perfect beach pictures and stories don’t end with children being bombed and killed. It shouldn’t happen anywhere else. Follow journalist @aymanm to stay updated about Gaza. (at Gaza)
Finally tried the brush pens from Kinokuniya in NYC. I really like how the brush tip holds its form. Guessing it’s mostly bc the brushes are brand new. Fun to write with & hoping to try coloring with the red one!
Israeli visual artist and painter Roy Nachum(1979), believes that art should be accessible to everybody, even those who are visually impaired and for this reason his latest work “BLIND" combines painting with Braille signage.
The moment which made the artist re-contextualize his signature pixel technique into Braille, came about a few years ago, when a chance encounter with Braille signage at a museum exhibition forced him to think of new ways in which the blind could possibly experience visual artworks. Until then, he had been utilizing the idea of pixels painted one-by-one to create micro worlds that come together in order to form the pattern of a single reality or of a dream. Most of the themes of his pixelized oil paintings on canvas derive from his brain’s hard disc which is why one could characterize him as a ”digital painter”.
Nachum’s photo realistic oil paintings illustrate surrealistic images of a fantasy realm, which employ Braille and a “double vision” technique that challenges those with sight to question the limitations of their vision. All the texts comprise poems written by the artist and inspired by the paintings. via
