Liz Brizzi is an artist from France who grew up in Los Angeles. She pulls inspiration from the raw and desolate aspects of cities.
"Her unique mixed media technique begins with the manipulation of her original photography collaged onto acrylic painted wood panels, finally blended within layers of colorful acrylic washes."
István Orosz is a Hungarian artist who specializes in complex images. The ones you see here are called anamorphoses which require the viewer to use specialized devices at certain angles to see an image. It is hard to make a simple anamorphic image, but he makes creating complex anamorphoses seem effortless.
Rebeca Cygnus is a beautiful and talented photographer from Spain. She is taking part in the 365 day project and has come out with some amazing self portraits.
"Since i was a child i always dreamed of having my own wonderland to such an extreme I’d go searching for it. That's why my work is like a mixture between surrealism and fantasy."
Lauren Peralta has a wonderful set of self portraits throughout her Flickr account. She just has a way of beautifully capturing herself on camera. I highly recommend viewing her most viewed and most interesting photographs or just wandering through her photo stream. Below are just some of the photos she tagged as self portraits.
Kim Burke masterfully mixes two of my favorite things: food and design. Her miniature food sculptures are absolutely incredible. She realistically creates everything from apple pie, to sushi, to cheese wedges. The amazing part is, they all look completely realistic and would be hard to distinguish from real food if it weren't for the giant fingers in the photos. You can find more of her work on Etsy, Deviant Art or Flickr.
