Art

the artist acts like a mediumistic being who, from the labyrinth beyond time and space, seeks his way out to a clearing.

-Marcel Duchamp

Burns Brighter

I want a trouble-maker for a lover,
Blood spiller, blood drinker, a heart of flame,
Who quarrels with the sky and fights with fate,
Who burns like fire on the rushing sea.

From Rumi’s Kolliyaat-e Shams-e Tabrizi

True

Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.
--W. H. Auden

Do You Realize? by The Flaming Lips -- Lyrics

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize - we're floating in space
Do You Realize - that happiness makes you cry
Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face

By The Way...

The best things in life are not things.

3D Printer With Spray Cheese Is The Saddest Little Invention


Just watch this thing. It’s trying so hard, bless its heart. The addition of spray cheese makes the machine’s inability to function just a little bit sadder. Let’s just chalk this one up to it being Monday.

WOLVERINE... ONE LAST TIME
by thehughjackman



Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence Leaving ‘X-Men’


Over the weekend Hugh Jackman announced via Instagram (which is what celebrities do now instead of sending out press releases) that he’d be donning his Wolverine claws for the last time. Jackman has been confirmed for a Wolverine sequel set to release in 2017, and rumors are swirling that he will also reprise his role for X-Men: Apocalypse, which begins filming next month. After that, Jackman, along with co-star Jennifer Lawrence — whose last X-Men film will be Apocalypse — will depart from the franchise. The exodus of these two X-Men mainstays comes in the wake of two others, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen — possibly the two best actors in the series, who’ve long played two of its most important characters. Neither Stewart nor McKellen will appear in Apocalypse.








Process Tutorial


ukitakumuki has posted a process tutorial that shows how he got from sketch to finished piece. It's pretty remarkable!








Schoolism Live Is Happening in Calgary


It will take place April 20-21st and will feature workshops by Artgerm, stephensilver and Nathan Fowkes. Schoolism is the brainchild of imaginism studios, and the live presentation of it is being presented by autodesk-sketchbook. If you’re in the area, we can’t recommend checking this out highly enough.








In Memory Of


DA’s own LadyLincoln has posted a beautiful tribute to the life of longtime community member Bark, who passed away last week. You can read it here.








Trevor Noah To Replace Jon Stewart


Noah is a South African comedian who made his first appearance as a correspondent on The Daily Show in December. It isn’t yet known when Stewart’s final episode on The Daily Show will be. Craig Kilborn hosted the show before Stewart for two years, and Stewart has hosted since 1999 and is largely credited for making it the well-known institution and primary news source for a demographic Bill O’Riley once referred to as “stoned slackers” that it is today. The show also helped catapult the careers of former correspondents Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, and Larry Wilmore, all of whom went on to have their own shows. When Noah does take over, he’ll be headed straight into an American Presidential election year, which tend to provide the show with a stream of comedic fodder. Although we’ll be sad to see Stewart leave, we’re very excited to see what Trevor Noah can do as the show’s host.








Wanderlust


Ruth-Tay is about to embark on a trip of a lifetime — 8 countries in 6 months. She's invited us to follow her travels which you can learn more about here. What countries would you like to visit? Let us know in the comments below.























Patrick Stewart Is Getting A Comedy Series


Is Patrick Stewart the best or what? He is. That was a rhetorical question. A trailer for the new comedy series he’ll be starring — called Blunt Talk — has been released. The series will premiere this summer on Starz, and was created by Jonathan Ames who also created a pretty funny series that used to be on HBO, called Bored To Death. Take a look at the trailer and see what you think.














Here There Be Dragons


DragonsAndBeasties creates these wonderful little dragons which are hand-sculpted and completely unique.








Discover Deviants


STelari posts a regular feature of artists that don't seem to be getting the attention they deserve. The feature is called (-404) Deviant Found and you can check out the latest edition here.























J.K. Rowling's first post-Potter novel is coming to HBO


The Casual Vacancy will premiere on HBO in late April. It will air in the form of a three-part miniseries, and centers around the unraveling social structure of a small town after the secrets of its residents begin to be exposed. Join us in the comments as we speculate whether or not Rowling will ever write a book that doesn’t get turned into a film of some kind.














Featured Forum


Candace Lee (aka candaceleeparks) is looking for some help with colored pencils and wants to know how to mix them to achieve the color she's looking for. If you've got any tips, help a deviant out!



















Here’s A New Halo 5 Trailer

About Project Porkchop

There just aren’t enough hours in the day to peruse the thousands of submissions and postings of artistic innovation, creativity and sheer beauty that are generated everyday.


So thank you for ProjectPorkchop!


Astralseed, an Icelandic deviant artist with a penchant for equines, including Quirlicorns (a breed of unicorns), has made our busy lives so much easier with ProjectPorkchop, a feature she started on her DeviantArt page. Project Porkchop’s fine eye for the best of the newly submitted artworks of virtually unknown artists, the incredible art that slips past us, unseen and denied its due, day after day, has meant so very much for these artists trying to create a presence in the art world, beginning on DeviantArt. By spotlighting these skilled artists and connecting creative art and creative art lovers, this group is doing the arts universe an immeasurable service.

‘Transformers’ Movies To Continue Until The Sun Has Burnt Out


Off the top of your head, do you know what number the next Transformers sequel will be in the series? Yeah, neither do we. If you’re trying to tally them up now, don’t bother, because soon there will be too many to count. According to a report from Deadline, Paramount is hiring a writer’s room that can transmute the robot-smash-’em-up franchise into a full-blown Universe. The writer’s room would be responsible for conceptualizing various sequels and spinoffs. To apply for a position, interested parties should send a ranked list of their favorite Michael Bay movies to Paramount’s offices in Hollywood.

Ten-Year-Old Owns The World’s Most Successful Lemonade Stand


BeeSweet Lemonade is a Texas-owned lemonade stand owned by ten-year-old Mikaila Ulmer, who, aside from being adorable, is kind of a marketing wizard. The lemonade she sells is sweetened by honey, rather than sugar or synthetic replacements, and part of her mission is to raise awareness about bees. The investment came from FUBU CEO Daymond John, who immediately saw potential in Mikaila. You can learn more about her business in this video.














A Painting A Day


Cryptid-Creations does a painting a day and they are fantastic. Check them out here.

Dear White People


Check out our review of a film that stirs the pot and fosters a dialogue about race, called Dear White People. Plus, we’ve also got a Q&A with the creator of the film’s official poster. Give it a read here.








Comic Papyrus


It is universally agreed that Comic Sans is the worst font ever created, with Papyrus only trailing by the breadth of a hair. A deranged graphic designer named Ben Harman has combined the fonts into something he’s calling “Comic Papyrus,” which you can download and use for $5, but we can’t imagine why you’d want to. Look upon these works ye mighty, and despair.

JiomeTheGnome wants to know what your plans for the future are. Join the discussion over in the forums!








There Might Be An Old Choo-Choo Train Buried In Brooklyn


Jalopnik has done an extremely thorough report on the possibility that an old choo-choo train is buried in a tunnel somewhere under Brooklyn. You can read the report here, but the tl;dr version is that when an old railroad tunnel was closed in 1861, a defunct wood-burning locomotive called “Hicksville” was also sealed inside, having been deemed not worth the effort of salvaging. Due to some political squabbling and injured egos, it seems the locomotive, the possible location of which is known to investigators, is buried indefinitely. We hope this changes soon.








Birthday Patrol


Goldenwolf not only has a birthday on Saturday, she also has an IndieGoGo project to publish her werewolf romance novel. We aren’t suggesting that we all try and get the project funded by the end of the day as some sort of crazy-awesome happy birthday present or something, oh wait nevermind that’s exactly what we’re suggesting. But if you can’t make a pledge, at least stop by and say happy b-day!

Our currency is covered in artwork.


Engravings on a coin or the images on the back of a dollar help us differentiate between denominations, but they serve other purposes as well. They are used to prevent anyone outside of the government that issues the currency from creating duplicates, and the images are supposed to provide cultural touchstones that bond together its users. Any American can recognize a portrait of Abraham Lincoln or George Washington because of this fact, and it isn’t dissimilar to the way leaders of Rome had their faces engraved on coins minted during their tenure.


Given the ubiquitous nature of currency inside a culture, as well as the power it represents, it’s natural for artists to be drawn to it. Some artists actually see currency as a medium.



The Greek artist Stefanos has made headlines recently for his controversial etchings on euros.


His images are supposed to illuminate the hardships that European Union-enforced austerity has brought to the people of Greece. One of his etchings features a black figure hanging by a noose from an archway. Others are more subtle, such as one that depicts a scattering crowd running through a classical-style bridge, possibly from an unseen predator.


Using banknotes as a canvas adds layers of complexity to the art. In Stefanos’s case, the artwork moves back into regular circulation after he has drawn on the bills. This incorporates a street art feel to the project, because viewers will not encounter the work in a typical gallery or museum setting. That fact suits the political message of the project; Stefanos is trying to make a point, and he wants it made loudly, to a large number of people. This approach also blurs distinctions between everyday life and art by its use of money as a medium. The political situation that the project comments on has been fueled by imposed austerity, which is a program that was prescribed in reaction to Greece’s financial problems. Yet the money the artwork is displayed on will be used for everyday interactions between average people. There is a complete interchange between the artwork, the political statement it makes, and the people affected by it.


"The medium allows me to ‘bomb’ public property from the comfort of my home,” said Stefanos, in a statement about his project. He stated that when he looks at EU banknotes, he does not see images that are grounded in reality. Given the chaos engendered by financial collapse in his home country, he wanted to paint a more realistic picture on the currency.












For what it’s worth, defacing currency is illegal in many countries.


The U.S. defines defacing currency as altering it past the point of use. In other words, if you alter a piece of green paper to the point where your local corner store wouldn’t accept or recognize it, you’ve technically broken federal law. And where you reach that point, exactly, is a little complicated. For example, burning a dollar is defacing it. If you turn your dollar into a small pile of ashes, it can’t be used or accepted or recognized. But what if you write your initials on it in sharpie? It’d look weird, but most people would agree that it’s still worth something.


For artists with projects like Stefanos’s, keeping the bills intact and usable is actually necessary for their art to succeed. If his tagged dollars aren’t in distribution, people don’t see them. But for other artists, like Hanna von Goeler, the bills don’t need to circulate.





This ongoing project chronicles my struggle and relationship with money”


— Hanna von Goeler


Where Stefanos’s project is political and specific to one country, Goeler’s project is at once more personal and more universal. Although the pieces in her project are based on American currency, her project examines the design and pattern of money. It also incorporates art history references and everyday objects like food and couches. Goeler also makes political points, though in a more subdued manner. One of her pieces includes a dollar with a painted map of the Middle East on the front.


C.K. Wilde, an artist whose work includes American dollars with pop-culture icons in the portrait slots, states that his interest in currency comes from childhood.



"I travelled to Europe often to visit my relatives. When I returned, I often still had money from the places I travelled. An attempt to buy candy with Deutsche marks in the U.S. brought into sharp relief the inherent contradictions of nationalism and international travel.”


— C.K. Wilde


Currency does often act as a vestige of nationalism.


Even in the Eurozone, where money circulates across national boundaries, it is still specific to the region. For all its supposed uses, our currency anchors us in place and typically offers only a superficial, sterilized glimpse at a nation’s culture or history. You can sense the frustration with this fact when artists choose to use currency as a canvas. It makes sense, though, that we should want something more fulfilling from an object that plays such a dominant role in each of our lives.



To this end, not a small number of artists have set about creating their own, new currency.


Barbara Bernát, an artist working in Budapest, created some beautiful, sophisticated images for a Hungarian Euro. The images feature plants and animals, under which you can see skeletal images under UV light — an aesthetic anti-counterfeiting device.


Along the same lines, the Women On 20s campaign seeks to replace American President Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill with the face of an influential American woman. Both projects reflect a desire for more aesthetic sensibility and cultural accuracy on currency.


Asking why money looks the way it does is perhaps akin to willingly diving face-first down the proverbial rabbit hole. But it is a question worth asking, and while we don’t condone breaking the law, we are always delighted to see artists turn their skeptical eyes toward important questions like this one and come up with creative answers.


















Your Thoughts


  1. If you had the opportunity to design a piece of currency, would you be interested? Or do you feel that the medium would limit your ability to be creative?
  2. What’s the most beautiful piece of currency you’ve ever seen? Where does it come from?
  3. Should currency be artistic? Or should its form match its utilitarian nature?












Expensive Taste: When Money Is The Medium
Our currency is covered in artwork. Engravings on a coin or the images on the back of a dollar help us differentiate between denominations, but they serve other purposes as well. They are used to prevent anyone outside of the government that issues the currency from creating duplicates, and the images are supposed to provide cultural touchstones that bond together its users. Any American can recognize a portrait of Abraham Lincoln or George Washington because of this fact, and it isn’t dissimilar to the way leaders of Rome had their faces engraved on coins minted during their tenure.

Sometimes you just have to celebrate your accomplishments and partake in a little bit of humblebragging. poetanddidntknowit34 has a lot of great stuff going on.










Facebook Tests Solar-Powered Internet Drone


Your parents’ favorite social media website, Facebook, is developing a solar-powered drone that can beam down internet connectivity to people below. The first test flight of the drone was completed in the UK this week. According to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the final design’s wingspan will be as large as a Boeing 747, which is likely welcome news to anyone who’s ever wanted to post a whiny status update about the hotel staff at a beach resort in another country, but couldn’t get on the wifi. All levity aside, this seems like a cool project, and we’re excited to see where it goes.
























New James Bond Trailer


A trailer for the upcoming James Bond film, titled SPECTRE, has been released. We’ve also heard tell that the film is coming to IMAX theaters upon its release. We absolutely can’t wait for this film to release.

Billy Zane Confused By Zayn Malik Tweets


This video from Funny or Die is hilarious. In it Billy Zane (Titanic, Zoolander), who hasn’t been making conspicuous career moves for a while now, reads heartbroken Tweets from One Direction fans mourning Zayn Malik’s departure from the band, and assumes that they are all from his own fans who, confusingly, cannot spell his name to save their own lives. It’s pretty great.








Forum Feature


Go give some praise to TheFlameSkinAlchemis for passing her first math exam! Help her celebrate here.




















‘Southpaw’ Trailer


By the looks of this trailer, Jake Gyllenhaal is in the middle of a full-on McConaissance. The movie itself looks pretty good — it’s got some approachable stakes and a good cast — but what we’re really interested in is Gyllenhaal’s performance. The actor is coming off an electrifying role in 2014’s Nightcrawler (for which he should have received a Best Actor nomination, by all accounts). We’re expecting more good things from Gyllenhaal in Southpaw.

We are excited to see the show as soon as we figure out how we can watch it...

Thank you kindly for mentioning one of my doodles in your "Nimoy's Famous Vulcan Salute Revealed" article. I wasn't expecting that, so I thought some gratitude was in order. :)

Hello there, I noticed you part of the dA staff, and I was wondering if you could help me. Are you willing to help me out?

Thank you for adding me to your watch list and then removing me from your watch list without even one comment.  Now my feelings are hurt.

Probably not. It's kind of difficult to accidentally open the watch list, scroll through it, click a profile, and not only go to the watching button but also press it to unwatch. But I'm not upset. I knew I was out of their interest, anyway, so I pretty much thought they were trying to get me to watch back, as many do by watching you first. I just never watched back. Not that you have to, as its the only profile you see on that app..

I love your articles. Unfortunately, I have pics for The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Birdman that did not feature in your recent articles :(
