Creative software developer Adobe will partner up with Nvidia on their latest program, titled Project Wetbrush! The project is a proposed software program in which users can create artwork that accurately mimics the look, feel, and depth of real-life canvas painting. The program will allow users to realistically produce painting on their digital canvas, mixing paints and stacking layers to create a life-like finished product. The painting will then either be able to be saved like a standard image, or saved as a 3D file that can be viewed from a number of angles, revealing the brush strokes and layers of paint as a thick surface. Artists can look forward to seeing this technology develop in earnest as the year goes on, and hopefully look forward to an official announcement as to when they can get their hands on this awesome piece of technology!

Artist Katharina Grosse has taken it upon herself over the weekend to turn a condemned building on the New York beach into a work of art. Titled “Rockaway!”, Grosse has encompassed an abandoned aquatics building at Fort Tilden, which had been deemed structurally unsafe and was scheduled for demolition, with her signature style of spray paint art. The result is the transformation of the space from an eyesore into a vibrant playground of color, which expands from within the building itself to the sidewalk and environment around it. This is not Grosse’s first work with condemned structures, as the artist formerly created similar artwork out of buildings deserted after the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans in 2008. As for “Rockaway!”, the piece is scheduled to remain until November 30th, 2016, after which demolition of the abandoned building will go underway.

Banksy, internationally renowned graphic designer and street artist, has once against left one of his anonymous graffiti pieces for the world to enjoy, this time at Bright Farm primary school in Bristol, England. The piece, which depicts a crayon-like drawing of a schoolgirl playing with a realistic flaming tire, was drawn in thanks to the elementary school for their recent naming of one of their four school houses after Banksy. On top of that, Banksy, who is said to have been born and raised in Bristol, left a personalized note with the art piece, thanking the school for naming the building after him and encouraging students to add onto the artwork, cheekily stating “it’s always easier to get forgiveness than permission”. The school has decided to keep the artwork as is, in order for the piece to serve as inspiration for their student body.

Artist Felice Varini’s work has always taken advantage of perspective and the scenery around him to create optical illusions. His work, which often consists of abstract shapes and geometric constructs, only comes into full view from a certain perspective, forming out of a series of seemingly random lines throughout the environment.

His most recent exhibit, titled “La Villete En Suites”, embodies his unique style of installation painting within the Paul Delouvrier pavilion in Paris, France, and uses the unique structure of the modern architecture to shape his forms. The exhibit opened its doors on April 15th, and takes advantage of shape, color, and even the ceiling of the building in his works.

While his works are better experienced in person, these photos help show off how his work comes together for the viewer as they move around the exhibit. For those wanting to see his work in person, though, the exhibit remains open until September 13th.
