Petros Vrellis brings Vincent Van Gogh’s famous ‘Starry Night’ to life. The user can interact with the animation with music responding to the flow. The whole piece is put together with the help of openFrameworks.
This interactive animation is also available on iPad as an app – just in case you really fancy interacting with it rather than watching it move.
New media art duo SWEATSHOPPE aka Blake Shaw and Bruno Levy are back from Europe with a new video that showcases their live interactive video wheatpaste in Berlin, Bristol, Belgrade, London and Paris. Over a two week period the duo pasted their videos in over 10 spots including the Berlin Wall, Les Invalides, Cordy House and even constructed a 5 meter telescopic electronic paint roller to create a two-story tall video painting in Bristol.
Video painting is a technology the duo developed that allows them to create the illusion that they are painting videos onto walls with electronic paint rollers they built. It works through custom software that they wrote that tracks the position of the paint rollers and projects video wherever they choose to paint, allowing them to explore the relationship between video, mark making and architecture and create live video collages in real time.
This is the awe-inspiring work of Russian artist Evgeny Lushpin – capturing the lure of l’heure bleue in his city and landscape paintings. His work kind of romanticize the notion of human dwellings such as cities, streets and alleys in a very visually rich and ideally realistic manner that tickles fantasy.
Evgeny Lushpin was born in Moscow in 1966. He graduated from Art-graphic department MGPU and Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts. Evgeny Lushpin’s work represents the best of Russian and West European pictorial art. Heavily inspired by the work of Pieter Bruegel, Andrew Wyeth, Hieronymus Bosch and Edward Hopper, he himself is one of the most outstanding modern Russian painters. His work can be found in many private collections across Russia, Europe and USA.
