Kseniya Simonova

The 24 year old winner of “Ukraine’s Got Talent” is a sand painter. She works on an illuminated table, drawing into a thin layer of sand with her finger tips. In this performance, she is drawing a series of pictures showing how ordinary people were affected by the German invasion during World War II. It’s about an 8 minute video, but it’s really awesome. Be sure to watch with the volume on.

Appropriation

I saw this work about a month ago in the San Antonio Museum of Art. I wrote down the artist’s name but misplaced it, sorry! This peice was in the Contemporary Art exhibit, along with some other bizarre pieces, including a giant illuminated glass fish hanging from the ceiling. The artist decided to spice up the average globe with acrylic paint.  Apologies for the bad quality, they were taken with my phone.

The Chalk Guy

I’m sure everyone has heard of this guy, Julian Beever, aka “The Chalk Guy.” He does pavement art on the sidewalks of NYC. His work has been around since the mid 90’s, and is hired to create murals for companies. He has worked in the US, UK, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Spain, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Russia, and Portugal. He uses the concept of anamorphosis that creates a 3D effect from certain angles. Pretty sweet!
