Vladimir Kush (born 1965) is a Russian born surrealist painter and sculptor. He studied at the Surikov Moscow Art Institute, and after several years working as an artist in Moscow, his native city, he emigrated to the United States, eventually establishing his own gallery on the island of Maui in Hawaii. His oil paintings are also sold as giclée prints which contributed to his popularity and led to the establishment of further galleries in Laguna Beach, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2011 Kush won the First Prize in Painting at the Artistes du Monde international exhibition in Cannes via
St. Peters Basilica, Rome, Italy
St. Peters Cathedral in Italy is actually the 2nd. The first was built by Constantine, the first Roman Emperor to convert to Christianity. The site of the basilica is thought to be where the bones of St. Peter are lie. Bernini’s Baldacchino is the solid-bronze canopy seen in the distance. It is actually 96 ft tall. It also is made of 100,00 lbs of bronze. The dome dwarfs it being 452 ft tall. The “paintings” priceless and insurance could never replace such masterpieces are actually mosaics and made with such tiny glass they appear to be fine paintings. Michelangelo’s, 24 at the time, Pietà is shielded by bulletproof after a mentally destroyed park of the statue.
Francine Van Hove born 1942 in Paris is a contemporary French painter. He completed her studies in 1963 at the Lycée Claude Bernard (Paris).
Her meticulously painted oils have always been well received since her first solo exhibition in 1971 and can be found in collections in Europe, America and Japan.
Known and appreciated for the refined details of her subjects, Francine Van Hove is particularly noted for the transparent skin tones of her nudes, which she always works from life. The expression of beauty, sensuality, meditation and freedom is the philosophy behind this artist’s work. via Galerie de Bellefeuille
DETAILS *in your face*
Funny story: I thought of painting some DaiSuga but more complicated than the gifs
me: Yeah, I feel like making some DaiSuga. With cute lightning.
my brain: Totally! But don’t forget to use some neat colour palette, add lots of details, use light+shadow+anatomy properly and make all of those in a wicked perspective. MUAHAHAHA!! (｡･｀ω´･｡)
Enjoy my first autumn-ish DaiSuga
