Art (Street/Animation/Portrait)

Yeah, its been a while since an update. I'm stuck here in a 3 hour class bored as all hell so I figured I'd do something somewhat 'productive' and update this. I'm just going to post some photos of some old favorites and newly found street art pieces, as well as 2 paintings from Dan Witz and a pretty mind blowing stop motion video from the street artist "Blu." Hope you enjoy...

This guys is probably my current favorite artist that I know of, all of his stuff is awesome. Sometimes pretty simple, yet complexly strange.

Julian Beever: The best to ever do 3D work...All of his stuff is done with chalk and on flat surfaces.

Alright I've got a break in class so I'm going to take it. I didn't take in a god damn word of what my teacher just said in this lecture. Fuck it, schools out in 2 weeks anyways.

"Blu" has some pretty sick stuff. I've always been amazed with Julian Beever's 3D stuff. He's so good. Have you ever seen any of Banksy's artwork? He's a British street artist. His website doesn't have shit on it; I don't even think its run by him, but Google 'Banksy' and see what you find under images. His main theme is rats, but he does some other things, too. I have a book on him.

Yeah, Banksy is real cool. My sister got me into him a while back. I've skimmed through his books at Borders but never had the balls to spend all the $$ on him.
