What Antarctica Looks Like When Shot by Drone Footage

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 06, 2015
This is coming from a guy who cried while watching "Field of Dreams" the other night, but this drone footage, shot over Antarctica, made me cry this morning. Maybe it was the soundtrack, the beauty of nature, life, the silence, the power, all of the above, I don't know. But I dare you to watch this and not get a little emotional.

We are quite sure we don't fully understand what the texts say in these illustrations of Valery Barykin, but something we do understand, and something we are fascinated by are the odd pseudo 1950's situations and poses in which the Russian artist shows the women in his works. Add the camera phones with a series of works that are highly influenced by the communist posters of former Soviet Union, and it just get weirder.

Erotica // Wednesday, May 06, 2015
Born April 21, 1948 in Rome, Dario Campanile started to sketch as a very young child. At the age of six, his talent for art was encouraged with the gift of a small set of watercolors from an uncle, himself a painter. When he was 14, Dario was bedridden with a kidney ailment for three months, and his father gave him his first oil paints to cheer him up.
