Everything is ending is an outdoor graphic installation made with match sticks.  The outdoor installation was set ablaze back in 2012 to mark the apocalypse hullabaloo that was happening at the time. “Everything is ending” was created by Javier JabaleraPol Trias, and Julia Rosich of 3DN.

Google Art Project

Now Has 35,000 Works Of Art

Google announced that it has added 29 new art organizations from 14 countries to its Google Art Project, which makes paintings, sculptures, street art, and photographs viewable online. These include the Istanbul Modern Art Museum, Art Gallery Of South Australia, Museum of Palazzo Vecchio, and Princeton University, to name a few.

In addition to the new art, Google has added some new features to the Art Project experience. There is a new “Compare” button on the toolbar on the left of the screen for each painting.

“This allows you to examine two pieces of artwork side-by-side to look at how an artist’s style evolved over time, connect trends across cultures or delve deeply into two parts of the same work,” explains Piotr Adamczyk from Google Art Project.

Theses sculptures are made up of thousands of tiny colored matches. The artist, David Mach, creates the sculptures to resemble famous faces and legendary artworks. When he opens up his exhibition he lights the work on fire. Talk about an attention getter!

I really enjoy looking at street art, and judging from your feedback on my previous posts, so do you. Therefore, I will share my findings of street art with you on a semi-regular basis. If you find anything good in the meantime, I would LOVE to hear about it!

If you are interested in reading a short article you should take a look at THIS one on how street art is dying in the UK. 🙁
