With their oversized eyes they look like cartoon characters. But these stunning photos show the strange world of Britain’s most colourful bugs that are normally far too small to see. The spectacular series was captured by ‘Bugman,’ amateur photographer Eddie Nurcombe, using powerful macro equipment.

---These photos are from the World Body Painting Festival is held during the third week of July every year in Seebonden and Carinthia, Austria. This is the largest festival for the Bodypainting community. Over 100 body painting artists and models that attend this festival with thousands of visitors from all over the world eager to see this art every year. The first four days are comprises of special workshop and lesson events while the last three days of the festival is open to the public.
I was lucky enough to attend this event full of live music, snacks and cafes and had a wonderful time taking these photos. You can see how each of the unique pieces of art develops as the day progresses.
The models and artists get the opportunity to show the art on their body against the magnificent scenery of Millstatter See. Most of the models volunteer and they were even asking canvassing subjects from the crowd should anyone like to try out. No previous experience necessary.

While walking the streets of San Francisco, it is easy to come across an intricate graffiti mural painted on the side of a building. Vivid colors blend together to make obscure fonts and shapes, all done with a can of spray paint and a lot of attention to detail. Even if you can't make out what it says you still know it is art.
SF is an open place. People are more open to new ideas, new forms of expression and has has a lot more character-driven stuff. People are more interested in collaborating with different types of artists. It's really easy to insult somebody you don't know. If you have friends that are really into something and you've seen it from their angle, you start to realize the ties between those things. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/section-blog/365-san-francisco-graffitiWhile walking the streets of San Francisco, it is easy to come across an intricate... more

All participating exhibitors are listed on Gawker Artists and are eligible to have their news published in the Gawker Artists Newsletter.

Learn About Our Exhibits
What's more, the Art@Gawker rotating series takes work from some of our favorite Gawker Artists and hangs it right on the walls of Gawker HQ. Our current exhibit ...In With the New, examines the evolution of communication via appropriated images, refigured media personalities (Gawker Overlord, Nick Denton, certainly isn't safe, nor are any of the 50 news anchors highlighted in Richard Blakeley's O-Face video) and takes a lighthearted look at what goes on in a world full of retumbld, tweetable, viral imagery.
Learn How Gawker Artists Gives Back
And as if that's wasn't enough to convince you, rest assured that we are also dedicated to giving back to New York's cultural community. Most recently, Gawker Artists, The Eames Foundation, Eames Office and Herman Miller have teamed up with the Public Works Department of New York to present an online auction featuring a unique collection of iconic Eames® Molded Plywood Chairs as re-imagined by some of today's most celebrated graffiti and street artists. As of yesterday, the limited edition "Eames Inspiration" collection will be on display in the windows of Barneys New York and auctioned online to benefit OPERATION DESIGN, a creative mentorship program that organizes architects, artists and related professionals to work with New York City public school students to create motivating and inspiring projects.

The time has finally come! Introducing: The Sketchbook Project Tour: 2011. A sketchbook is a place to put your heart and soul. Let it out into the wild; we’ll keep you connected. This is one of our most exciting projects to date. You sign up, pick your theme, and we send you the sketchbook! Fill it up and send it back and we will take it on tour to Brooklyn, Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, Portland, and more! To sign up or for the full set of rules, please check out http://www.thesketchbookproject.com
Your book is unique. And you can track it. Your sketchbook will be given a barcode with a unique number - this allows us to keep track of your book and record who views it at every tour date and while it's in The Brooklyn Art Library. And after we catalog it, artists will be able to log-on and view realtime statistics about their book for years to come.
Viewing notifications Each and every single time your book is viewed, you'll receive an e-mail or a text message alerting you what city it was viewed in and the first name of the person browsing through it (well, only as long as they provide their name!) Even better, you can turn these notifications on or off at will.
Never get lost. Just like your local library, we know exactly where each sketchbook is hiding. You can send friends, family, and art lovers to The Brooklyn Art Library and we'll be able to immediately pull your book - or any other work you may have displayed with us - for them to view. Same goes for our tour. We like to keep things organized.
Your information is in the pocket. There's a handy pocket attached to the inside cover of every sketchbook. Inside this pocket, you can place a card that contains your artist information - anything from a short biography to your website address.
A custom library card Every person who views a book, whether it be at the exhibition or in The Brooklyn Art Library, receives a library card to use while browsing. As a participating artist, you'll receive a limited edition library card with your name on it.
Can't make it to an exhibition? With artists participating from all around the world, we know it's impossible for everyone to be able to see our exhibitions. But we don't like "impossible." We'll be filming exhibitions from the tour so our far-away artists can see first-hand how viewers interact with their work. And the exhibition at The Brooklyn Art Library will be broadcast live over the internet! Take that, impossible.
We know how precious a sketchbook is. You carry it with you everywhere, spending months working on it. It becomes a part of you. When you're finished, share your hard work with the world. We'll make sure you stay connected with your sketchbook as it tours the country and after we catalog it in The Brooklyn Art Library.The time has finally come!

For some time now I have been looking for art created by African Americans in the mainstream of America and I can honestly only name a few who have become familliar to my conscious mind.I go to art galleries visit museums and read most of the art publications available and I can't seem to find very many.The ironic thing is that I see plenty of graffiti & street art but it is produced by caucasian people from the subburbs who become brand names and are promoted to the highest ranks of stardom.Doesn't anyone find this a strange phenomina in the year 2010.For some time now I have been looking for art created by African Americans in the... more
Our blogger goes to an amazing art festival called The Pageantry of Masters in Laguna Beach where at and life mesh because humans become part of the painting. Laguna is spectacular showing off Plein Air art, the sea and a wonderful artists colony. But, our blogger worries that she might be getting framed into a canvas she might not like and being permanently painted into a life she doesn’t want. Is life imitating art too closely?

Review of APW Gallery's "Something Different" group exhibition.
WORLDbytes correspondent Onyeka Igwe reports from Cabaret without Borders an event organised by the Manifesto Club, in opposition to the Home Office’s new visa controls on visiting artists and academics. These controls have already prevented a plethora of creative visitors coming to the UK leading to concerts, exhibitions and international programmes being cancelled. Under the new rules the Home Office effectively determines international programming, what we can and cannot watch, share and experience and whose work merits a UK visit. Meanwhile numerous institutions are co-opted to police and report on visitors they are granted permission to host. This lively cabaret event sees a wide range of artists express their opposition through artistic interventions and personal testimonies. Among the artists and speakers were author Maureen Duffy, cabaret singer Barb Jungr and Josie Appleton, Convenor of the Manifesto Club.WORLDbytes correspondent Onyeka Igwe reports from Cabaret without Borders an event... more
Sixteen artists explore the future as a theme and subject on canvas, using traditional painting as a narrative for commenting about these ideas and eschewing the immediacy of technology in favor of a slowed-down approach.

Kahn, Mikela Naylor, Candace Nicol, Joanne Pavlak, Danila Rumold, Amanda Smith, Jeffrey Sully, and Lindsey Warren. Exhibition jurors include Philip Govedare and Helen O'Toole - both artists and University of Washington painting professors, and KAC's Exhibitions Director Cable Griffith.
