Incredible Pavement Drawings

The creativity of people sometimes just… blows me away.  This chalk drawing was done by Kurt Wenner, an artist trained in classical rennaisance art.  His talents lie not only in street art, but in fine arts and architecture as well.  Check out his website to see some amazing architectural renderings that only the world’s 5% wealthiest could afford, as well as his paintings and drawings. He has mind-boggling skill and imagination.  For a whole gallery of Kurt’s chalk drawings, click here:

Another master of street art, Julian Beever.  Julian is an English artist who has been creating these fantastical pieces since the mid-90’s.  Quite a different style than Mr. Wenner, but amazing none-the-less.  Check out a gallery of his work here:

I’d like to take this opportunity to invite anyone who’d like me to post their artwork on this blog….please do!  Email me your JPEGs at seravantes@blazemail.com.  Have fun and create art!  -luke

Amazing…Annoying Illusions

(Gallery/article link below)

These pictures (and their explanations) were amusing to look at, mainly because of how angry and annoyed I found myself getting.  Take this blue cube, for instance.  The description basically says:  ‘see that dark blue square on top, and see that bright glowing blue square on the right side?…yeah, they’re actually the same exact shade of blue.’  My brain responded:  “F@#k  you Mr. Brain Researcher man, I know what I’m seein’ and that aint the f@#kin’ same!”  It’s like someone telling you that something you whole-heartedly believe is true…is actually an illusion, and isn’t true at all!  The mind’s first reaction is always going to be anger and annoyance….then you feel stupid…. but after a while… you tend to just question your own confidence in your perceptions.  If we can fail at something as simple as distinguishing 2 colors,  how can we be so sure our other, more far-reaching assumptions are true?

Beau Lotto, a brain researcher at University College London says:

Neuroscientists usually explain color illusions in mechanistic terms: They arise because of the way cells in the retina and the brain respond to certain wavelengths of light. Those explanations miss the larger point. We misperceive colors and shapes because our visual sense has been molded by evolutionary history.
