Lord Lichfield was educated at Harrow and Sandhurst, and joined the Grenadier Guards in 1959. On leaving the Army in 1962, he began to work as a photographer’s assistant, and built up his own reputation, partly as a result of having access to the Royal Family. He was selected to take the official photographs of the wedding of the Prince and Princess of Wales in 1981, and subsequently became one of the UK’s best-known photographers. From 1999 onwards, he was a pioneer of digital photography at a professional standard.

The Fantastic, Beautiful and Colorful Mosaic Portraits by Charis Tsevis

Charis Tsevis is a Greek visual designer living and working in Pafos, Cyprus. He holds a Diploma in Graphic Design from the Akademie für das Grafische Gewerbe, München and a Master in Visual Design from the Scuola Politecnica di Design, Milano.

His new series “The Queen’s Gambit” was inspired by the well-known and successful TV series “The Lady’s Game”:

“A year like no other showed us many unknown and unexpected parts of the human soul, identity, and behavior. Beth Harmon is a heroine that many could relate to, and chess is the platform on which many psychological and sociological schemes can be applied. In 2020 every one of us had to play a strange chess game against the coronavirus pandemic. It’s an ongoing game with many different challenges, unknown moves, obvious and not so apparent strategies, dilemmas, and complications. This game against an invisible enemy has shaped our lives and showed us our limitations. Finally, it gave us an ultimate chance to rethink ourselves and our civilization”, he explains on his website.

The Art of Japanese Portrait Photography by Kishin Shinoyama

Japanese photographer Kishin Shinoyama has dedicated his practice to exploring intimacy and the human body, as well as documenting his home place of Tokyo. His sensual photographs often depict the body within the architecture of the city or conversely, the inherent sculptural qualities of the naked human form. Shinoyama was born in 1940, in Tokyo, Japan. He studied in the Department of Photography at Nippon University and was awarded the Advertising Photographer’s Association prize. After being employed at the Light Publicity advertising company, he started to work as an independent photographer in 1968.

Kishin Shinoyama’s work has long captured the changing urban landscape of Tokyo; its politics, culture, and society. His ‘shino-rama’ images of the 1980s capture the extensive commercial developments and excessive consumer lifestyles of the era by utilizing multiple cameras to produce vast panoramas.

Shinoyama’s early nudes from the sixties and seventies, often shot in black and white, framed bodies as expressive objects in the natural environment; living sculptures of flesh and bone. More recently, the pictures he terms ‘Gekisha’ stage young and amateur female models, usually naked, amongst the neon lights and concrete structures of the city. A recent nude photo shoot in a cemetery sparked controversy which the artist has not shied away from. Shinoyama documented the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that struck the east coast of Japan in March, 2011, adding another layer of texture to his vision of Japan.

In addition to the diverse landscapes of his country, Shinoyama is also acclaimed for his portraits of celebrities such as John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Rie Miyazawa, and other famous personalities. In 1980 Yoko Ono asked Shinoyama to shoot the artwork for her and John Lennon’s collaborative album Double Fantasy.

This Artist Drew These 30 Animals So “Badly”, It Might Be A New Style

Art comes in all forms and shapes and always makes people wonder about things and find the most accurate interpretations. But what is considered a good piece of art? To each individual, it might be a different thing: the memories or feelings the painting is calling out, techniques that are used to create the piece, the artist and their personality, their talent, and work. There is no one way to become a successful artist, and Hercule Van Wolfwinkle is one of the people who can confirm that.

More: Hercule Van Wolfwinkle, Instagram, Facebook h/t: boredpanda

Phil Heckels, better known as Hercule Van Wolfwinkle, started his artist career about a year ago when he was doodling with his kid. Little did he know that his little painting will change a lot of things for good.

The artist caught everyone’s attention when he started drawing pet portraits. In his last interview with Bored Panda, the artist shared that everything started with “thank you” cards that he was making that he decided to share on Facebook. Soon, people started asking him to draw their pet portraits. One of the most fascinating things about this is that instead of paying for these portraits, people get to donate the money to a homeless charity Turning Tides.

The first building was the yellow brick schoolhouse of the Armstrong School which opened on October 12, 1915. The Armstrong School only served children through ninth grade. In 1922, the high school moved to its own separate building on Normandy Avenue following HPISD’s purchase of 11 lots in 1920. The tenth grade was added in the fall of 1922, and the eleventh grade a year later.


Cornell Capa/LIFE Photo Archive

In 1924, 34 students became the first graduating class of the Highland Park Independent School District when they participated in the first-ever high school graduation ceremony of HPISD on June 2, 1924 (at that time, only eleven years of school were required prior to college admittance; it was not until 1937 that the twelfth grade was added).

Sensitive and Emotional Portrait Paintings by Nina Milke

According to Nina Milke: “Everything happened when I became a single mom. I was searching for my inspiration and passion. First I started my creativity with making photo collages in photoshop.

I was planning to create my own tarot deck but everything turned out different than I expected. I started to feel passionate about digital painting. I got my first tablet that I found second hand and started my new journey. After over a year of working on growing my Instagram account (I have more than 8k followers) and my artistic skills I lost my passion for it. This happened when my Apple Pencil broke and I couldnt afford to get a new one and I didnt have the possibilty to fix the old one.”

More: Instagram, Behance, Rarible

“I didnt feel inspired at all until I started watching Jonna Jinton on youtube and her lifestyle and everything she did inspired me again! I felt this fresh breeze and new things to feel inspired about.”

“I started my new Instagram account with posting my old photographs but that didnt feel enough. This made me try abstract painting on my iPad with my finger. It turned out to be so amazing and creative! So many possibilities.

Now I am opening this online shop to sell my own prints of my photographs and my paintings.”

Brzilian Street Artist Goes Viral After Using Trees As ‘Hair’ For His Women’s Portraits

Urbanism and nature seem like contradictory things, but this is not always the case. Sometimes if one’s imagination can allow, the two can be combined just like bread and butter, forming a collaboration that creates something really special and unique.

More: Instagram h/t: boredpanda

Works by a certain artist in Goiânia, Brazil, are becoming more and more known worldwide. Artist Fábio Gomes Trindade makes street art that can leave one speechless upon seeing it. Why, you might ask? Fábio is well known for his art on the walls which depicts amazingly detailed portraits of women and children wearing the branches of trees and bushes as “hair.” His work quickly overtook social media all over Brazil and is now spreading all around the world.

Oscar-winner Viola Davis re-posted one of the images depicting Fábio’s art on her social media and said she “loved it.” The mother of singer Beyoncé, who has more than three million followers, was also equally impressed and said it was: “a beautiful way to use a tree.”

The artist Fábio Gomes makes paintings under the leaves of trees, giving the impression of it being the hair of the women and children he portrayed. On his Instagram, the artist said that he was overtaken by inspiration the moment he saw an acerola tree planted 20 years ago in the backyard of a humble house in the city, and now, the said tree also is part of the artist’s best-known work.
