Flash of Genius – Images by Francisco Negroni

On any other website, Francisco Negroni’s images would be considered blatant fakes. They have most of the elements found on the cover of a death metal album. Lightning : check. Fire : check. Angry volcano spewing smoke and/or brimstone: check. All that’s missing is blood and a couple of human skulls. Yet, Francisco’s mind-blowing images are […]

Black Scalpel Cityscapes by Damien Hirst

A Taste for Meat – Stills from Chris Field’s Biolapse

Biolapse is Chris Field’s brainchild. It’s actually a rather fascinating timelapse of carnivorous plants ‘hunting’ and eating their prey, though “hunting” may not be the most precise term to use since it involves actively stalking and pouncing on prey… These carnivorous plants stay firmly rooted on the ground. What they actually do is ‘lure’ hapless […]

Aliens and outer space has long been a staple of science fiction, probably because scientists can’t really rule out the presence of intelligent life ‘out there.’ Artists too, are inspired by these mythical creatures and because no one has ever seen one, their imaginations can run wild as to what form these aliens might take.

He re-imagined all our favorite superheroes dressed them up in 16th century Flemish finery. It’s kinda hard to think of Batman in ruffles but Sacha simply nailed it. […]
