“Welcome To The Mystically Beautiful World Of Your Nightmares”: The Superb Digital Art By Stefan Koidl

What is hidden under the cover of night? Who can you meet in a gloomy forest? Whose footsteps are heard behind in a dark alley? Why did the floorboard creak in the empty room?

Imagined? The most terrible things are born not in the real world, but in our imagination. And this guy with the imagination is all right. The artist Stefan Koidl is inspired by the fact that frightens others, and animates in his fascinating works the most intimate fears.

Prepare a night lamp and stock up on sleeping pills, without it you today certainly will not fall asleep.

“Antisocial” – The Irony Of Loneliness In Social Networks

Here is the “Antisocial” project of the American designer Mike Campau, who looks at the fall of the giants that have become Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin or Snapchat. A reflection on loneliness and our solitary publications, lost in the middle of an ocean of information, but also on the first signs of decline of these famous social networks.

“Social Media is starting to get some pull back, and rightfully so. Each platform has it’s own problems, but all have had a large impact on society as a whole, both good and bad. Each image takes place in an empty parking lot which is a symbol of our singularly isolated posts, but placed in a location where it can be easily seen by many,” he wrote.

Deaf People Show How To Swear In Sign Language, And It’s Shamefully Entertaining

In case you weren’t aware, deaf people swear just as much as the rest of us – they’re just able to do it a little more discreetly. YouTube channel Cut has helped us all join in on the fun by posting a video in which 7 deaf people show how to say all of your favorite curse words in American Sign Language, and it’s so much more fun than just flipping the bird.

Some of the ‘colorful terms’ involve pretty straight-forward hand charades, and probably shouldn’t be acted out in public places. Others, however, are more subtle, and could be mistake for a variety of meanings. Finally, some involve manually spelling out the word using alphabetical signs, deciphering it completely to the untrained eye. It’s basically the most useful piece of education you’re likely to get today.

Watch the video for yourself below, and don’t worry – we already know you’re going to try them all in front of your computer screen. Just make sure any deaf family members have left the room first.

Polish Photographer Ezo Oneir Leads Us Into A Universe Through Surreal Creations Inspired By The Slavic Myths And Legends

I invite you to discover the work of the Polish photographer Ezo Oneir, who leads us into a universe through surreal creations. Ezo uses inspiration from other worlds and dimensions. She offers us beautiful pictures, featuring her models in dark esoteric and oneiric compositions.

In 1995 pursuing her passion Ezo Oneir began education in technical institute for photographers. She achieved success at local and nationwide photographic exhibitions.

Due to tough local market but mainly being under the social pressure conveying „you will not earn your living with art” she left the artistic activity behind for several years to develop professionally in other fields. Within a few years she got tangled into the rapids of corporate career. She became the director of a bank branch and sales manager in one of the insurance companies. For few years she unknowingly copied the pattern of generation X- the generation of searchers, lost in the chaos of modern times.

However, the universe didn’t let Ezo silence her heart entirely. During few years of the career involving the highest position she had more and more serious episodes of depression. Whenever she was ill she was hiding in her own world, on many occasions changing the circle of people surrounding her after the illness.

Spiritual development allowed her to find courage and follow her own way. With her friend Marek she planned an artistic project together. However, from the very beginning, its development was blocked by then impossible to understand sequence of events. In December 2013 Marek died at the age of only 30. Ezo was mourning but supported by an amazing power she began to create. She completed graphic studies at University of Łódź and experimented with photographic reality.

At the end of 2015 – during another episode of depression-overnight she broke out of the corporate pattern. She knew that only persuing the artistic way could save her from illness which was nothing else but sign of lack of realization of her artistic calling.

Endre Penovác is world-wide renown for his paintings of black cats. What may be less known is his obvious love for dogs. He has 3 dogs so he is intimately acquainted with the nature of ’man’s best friends’.

Although simplification is very important in Endre’s art he is able to capture perfectly the true identity of dogs. He brings them to life with his breathtaking technique in these pencil drawings, watercolor and ink paintings. His dogs so instinctively and lovingly stroked that you can feel their wet noses, the softness of their messy fur and the warmth of their bodies just by looking at them.

Beautiful Watercolor Animal Illustrations By Luqman Reza Mulyono

Indonesian artist & illustrator Luqman Reza Mulyono, better known as ‘Jongkie’, uses watercolors to create colorful animal illustrations with a whimsical touch.

“For me especially, nature provides unfathomable inspirations. The living of creatures and animals in the wild never fail to excite me the most. On the other side, I’m an emotional and a touchy person. I fall in love facilely for beautiful things. I’m quickly shed tears when I read a sad novel or watch a sorrowful event in real life or even a fiction. Those things motivate me to create watercolor paintings that contain stories about life in the manner of metaphors,” Jongkie told Bored Panda.
