Awesome Digital Paintings by Artem Rhad Cheboha
Last year, 22-time Emmy award-winning reporter John Stofflet posted this news video he created for KING-TV in 2004, featuring Paul Smith and his artistic talents.
Took 5 tabs of acid (first time doing it ever) and my friend gave me a bunch of acrylic paint. Painted it with my fingers tripping out of my mind. Also I’m colorblind, and don’t work with abstract work at all (I only have ever done drawing). Thought this was pretty wacky.

A I R is a wind-reactive fabric developed by T H E U N S E E N, a design group that describes itself as “an exploration house that blends biological and chemical matter into materials; focused on seeing the unseen by combining science with art, design and performance”.
About the project:
This season T H E U N S E E N has developed a form of wind reactive ink that changes colour upon contact with the air around us. Intended to reveal the otherwise unseen turbulence surrounding the human as it goes about its environment.

I’ve kept these leaves and flowers pressed in a book on Monet for a while, and some of them seemed to fit so appropriately on their page, I just couldn’t resist moving them around a bit. The effect is beautiful, and a bit strange.
The Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera House in London recently commissioned Phlegm to create work for their annual contemporary arts festival, Deloitte Ignite.

Russian artist Yulia Brodskaya creates playful illustrations, installations and paper cut works using a unique method she developed after leaving her graphic design job in 2006. The artist rolls tiny strips of colorful paper into spirals that she aggregates into larger shapes, creating textural works that lie somewhere on the horizon between two and three dimensions. Her whimsical, springy work invites a sense of optimism. While paper cut art is typically a small-scale medium, Brodskaya often creates mural-sized artworks and installations for commercial clients, using paper to transform rigid spaces into fantastical realms.
