We mentioned this on our Instagram yesterday, but this photography work by Ukraine artist Oleg Oprisco made us double-take because of its painterly and fantasy-world quality. These particular portraits with the flowers have such rich color quality that you almost can't believe its a photo.

Another piece from the Interesni Kazki team that transports you to another time and space. AEC from the Ukrainian duo was in Grottaglie, Italy to paint this wall/building for Fame Festival 2012, but from the sound of it, this was a stressful piece. Punctured tires of the lift, stuck in the mud, and then, it didn't work. Lifts are stressful. Watch the video after the jump . . .

Dmitriy Samohin's tattoo work is incredible! He creates ultra realistic portraits on skin and works out of Ukraine. He says of drawing portraits, "Portraits are fascinating. And for me it’s all about the eyes, the expression. It’s like in our daily life; the eyes reveal everything. I like to express that reality in my portraits as well. Once again, portraits can be complicated, so more interesting to me as I want to capture the expression, the person, the mood … so much goes on in the face, the look of a person."

A few weeks ago, we showed you the incredible tilt-shift video, City of Samba, shot at Carnaval in Rio. Now comes another fantastic video called MiniLook Kiev, where the filmmakers have captured the Ukrainian capital city with the tilt-shift effect, making a city appear to arise from a storybook, with vivid detail and almost diorama like construction.
