Jose Vergara (aka Redosking) is an impressively talented hyperrealist who is quickly transforming our idea of colored pencils and their artistic potential.

The 19-year-old artist was born in Mexico City, raised in Madrid and currently resides in south Texas. When he was eight years old, Vergara suffered an accident that almost cost him his right hand. “That fortunately never stopped my passion for art nor my capacity to draw,” he explained to The Huffington Post in an email. Judging by Vergara’s works, which are meticulous and imaginative at once, we’d have to agree.

Dauphin Island, located off the coast of Alabama in the Gulf of Mexico, is known for experiencing perpetual and catastrophic hurricanes. When a storm hits the small island of around 1,200 people, it often washes away much of the coastline with it, leaving residents to rebuild their homes again and again following every big storm.

Astonishing Photographs Of Drugs Prove Substances Look Just Like They Feel

Have you ever wondered what ketamine, speed and Prozac really look like? You may or may not be familiar with the sensory experience of the various legal and illegal substances, but we’re pretty sure you’ve never sat down with a microscope and pored over the celestial images that are hiding inside within.
.
Enter German artist Sarah Schönfeld, who’s performed a similar experiment in her project “All You Can Feel.” Whether depicting methamphetamine, heroin or ecstasy, her images present an astonishing side of pseudo-alchemy, the result of sprinkling psychotropics and neurotransmitters onto photographic negatives and subjecting the swatches to the typical photographic process. What remains are tumbling landscapes, planetary scenes and crystallized universes, dancing about in a manner eerily similar to the feelings you might associate with each respective substance.

A “sonic playground,” a “shantytown-sound laboratory,” a “small village of ramshackle sculptures.” These are just some of the phrases that have been used to describe the ongoing musical architecture project entitled “Dithyrambalina.”

Dithyrambalina began two years ago when 25 collaborating artist, including street artist Swoon, transformed a 150-year-old New Orleans house into an architectural instrument and a vehicle of hope for the Hurricane devastated locale. The enchanted performance venue, dubbed “The Music Box,” was a collection of wooden and metal structures built from a Creole cottage, each structure housing off-kilter instruments.

Lucian Freud as Father: How He Painted His 14-Year-Old Daughter Naked—and How She Reacted

The public was fascinated by Lucian’s portraits of his sons and daughters, some of which were naked portraits. Journalists had a field day trying to explain the Freudian significance of children in their teens or early adulthood stripping bare for their father.
.
His 14 offspring included a novelist, a Biro artist, a fashion designer, a journalist, a drugs adviser, a poet, and a sculptor. They rarely mixed, however. His four children by Suzy Boyt, a student he met at the Slade in the 1950s, and two by the writer, bohemian traveler, and gardener Bernardine Coverley, were the main exception to this rule. Some were only vaguely aware of each other’s existence even after Lucian died. Some still do not know of at least one of their half-siblings.

Francis Bacon Painting Sets Auction World Record (VIDEO)

 A 1969 painting by Francis Bacon set a world record for most expensive artwork ever sold at auction.

“Three Studies of Lucian Freud” was purchased for $142,405,000 at Christie’s postwar and contemporary art sale on Tuesday night. The triptych depicts Bacon’s artist friend.

The work sold after “6 minutes of fierce bidding in the room and on the phone,” Christie’s said in a statement. The price includes the buyer’s premium. Christie’s did not say who bought the painting.

The price surpassed the nearly $120 million paid for Edvard Munch’s “The Scream,” which set a world record when it was sold at Sotheby’s in a 2012 sale.

The previous record for Bacon’s artwork sold at auction was his 1976 “Triptych.” That sold for $86 million in 2008.

Among other highlights scheduled to be auctioned at Christie’s is a bright orange-yellow and white oil painting by Mark Rothko. Reminiscent of a radiating sunset, the 1957 large-scale “Untitled (No. 11)” could fetch up to $35 million. In May 2012, Christie’s sold Rothko’s “Orange, Red, Yellow” for $86.8 million, a record for any contemporary artwork at auction.

This Photo Proves Your Genes Are More Powerful Than You Think

If you want to get a preview of your future self, no need to seek a psychic. Just take a glimpse at your paternal grandmother.

Photographer Ulric Collette captured the uncanny resemblance between grandmother and granddaughter using members of his own family.

Collette explained his motivation for the striking image in an email to The Huffington Post.

“My mother’s name is Ginette, she’s 62, and my daughter’s name is Ismaëlle and she was 12 at the time the picture was taken. I made the photograph with the two of them because last summer I talked with a genetician who had the theory that grandchildren look much more like their paternal grandmother. I wanted to try it out with my family, and the result is pretty amazing!”

This Infinite Staircase Will Make You Believe In Miracles Art

On a good day, art can be a portal to another dimension. On a great day, it’s a staircase to nowhere. Meet “Diminish and Ascend,” or as we like to call it, the infinite staircase.

Designed by New Zealand artist David McCracken, this magnificent illusion stems from the seashore in Bondi, Australia and rises up into the heavens above. Depending on the atmosphere and weather conditions, the stairway appears to reach beyond the clouds into the celestial realms overhead. It’s basically an M.C. Escher drawing in real life.

Watch This Face Experience Aging, Death, Decay And Rebirth All In 75 Seconds

In real life, the process of aging, decaying and being reborn could take decades — even centuries. Thanks to the wondrous glory that is the internet, we can skip the boring parts and experience the entire cosmic miracle in 75 seconds.

London-based artist, animator and body painter Emma Allen performs the phenomenon that is reincarnation using her own face as a canvas. Allen turns from an aging woman to a rotting skeleton to a burgeoning fetus to a leopard, making a few other existential stops along the way. The entire process took Allen five days, using only stop frame animation and some very expertly applied face paint.

Top 5 World’s Wealthiest Artists — Damien Hirst Comes in First

Hirst made history in 2008, when he by-passed the art galleries to become the first living artist to sell an entire show directly through auction at Sotheby’s. The sale raised $198 million and his estimated net worth today of $350 million dwarfs that of American abstract expressionist painter and sculptor Jasper Johns and Welsh portrait painter Andrew Vicari, who tie for second place with net worth estimated at $210 million, each.American artists Jeff Koons and David Choe come in at fourth place on the Wealth X ranking with an estimated net worth of $100 million, each.

Choe was commissioned by Mark Zuckerberg to paint murals on the walls of Facebook’s office in 2007 and opted to be paid in Facebook stock rather than cash. This brought the graffiti artist a significant windfall when the company went public in 2012.
