The Merging Art & Science Of Daniel Martin Diaz

Daniel Martin Diaz is a fine artist based in Tucson, Arizona, characterised by his unique way of representing the mysteries of life merged with the realms of science. Immersed in scientific and philosophical concepts, Diaz has been mainly fascinated with scientific diagrams which explain theories and properties through the use of images.

“Art is a reflection of ourselves, the story of humanity, and a quest to understand the physical and metaphysical world.” — Daniel Martin Diaz

Diaz’s style is significantly influenced by classical artists of Renaissance, especially Jan van Eyck, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, and Hans Memling. Byzantine iconography, the Illuminati, ephemera, alchemy and anatomical drawings are also incorporated in Diaz’s pieces. He believes that drawing covers beauty and intimacy that paintings cannot capture, as he implied “the subtle lines that graphite creates and the quickness in which one can capture an idea makes this medium alluring.”

How People With Bad Eyesight See The World When They Take Off Their Glasses

Have you ever wondered how people with specific eye errors see the world? Philip Barlow, a Cape Town-based artist, has created a series of paintings that vividly shows the struggle of those who have myopia or nearsightedness, the most common refractive error of the eye.

At a first glance, Barlow’s paintings look like photographs that are out of focus. But these hyperrealistic oil artworks perfectly portray the blurred effect that nearsighted people see when they take off their glasses, and let those with normal vision understand what it’s like to live with this condition.

Book-Loving Guy Turns His Massive Library Into Art Space

The best books can spark our imagination and in the case of James Trevino, even our creativity. The 24-year-old has made a name for himself by arranging his book collection to depict elaborate literary scenes.

A self-proclaimed ‘bookstagrammer’, Trevino has managed to pull in 120k Instagram followers for his ornate creations (in addition to being pretty easy on the eyes himself). He said the idea to start creating the pieces “just sort of happened.”

“At first I was posting pictures of my then current reads. With time, the photos got more and more complex, influenced mostly by pop culture and sometimes by certain pictures I saw on Instagram.”

Each scene goes through a process to create, he explained, “First, there is the brainstorming I do with my good friend Elizabeth. Then, once we have a general idea, me and Liz try to bring it as close as possible to our vision. If the concept proves to be too large to capture in a single frame, we combine two or more photos in post editing.”

While the literary themes on his page are diverse, they lean in favor of his two favorite books, ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ by J.K. Rowling and ‘The Silmarillion’ by JRR Tolkien. Trevino is now up to about 1,100 books in his collection and has no plans on slowing down. He told Bored Panda, for now, his creations are just a hobby and that he is going with the flow, “The fact that the reactions have been so positive is a bit overwhelming, but also heartwarming.”

These Doodles Explain Why Every Millennial Is Having A Tough Time Growing Up

Clare Kayden Hines is an illustrator who’s managed to nail our struggles perfectly. These amazing illustrations describe the life of us millennials right to the T.

Clare started drawing from a very young age. “I started drawing after I got my first dog, Buttercup,” she told Bored Panda. “I was 5 and I was so obsessed with her that all I wanted to do was draw her on every piece of paper I could find. I eventually expanded to drawing other subjects beyond dogs. I’ve taken a few drawing classes, but in general, I just doodled and drew for fun… mostly during class or boring meetings. Probably way too much. My classmates started noticing me drawing in class and would ask me to draw pictures of their dogs for them!”
