I’ve been hearing about gnomes A LOT lately – even garden gnomes! – in the context of paranormal and horror stories. This painting by Woodrow White sums up the mood of this trend very well. Here is the video-inspo for the painting.
Hide & Seek is a painting by Pavel Fyodorovich Tchelitchew, a Russian surrealist artist, that has gained a cult following of people who love to stare at it while taking Peyote.
This is a work made by Memo Atken in 2009, but I just discovered it and it’s lovely!
“iScream consists of 16x iPhone applications that do absolutely nothing. Each one has a custom icon, which is a small section of Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”.

Copyrights (2011- Ongoing) is a project by Phil Thompson:
“The Google Art Project contains several paintings which have had a blur filter applied to them so as to make them unrecognisable. Google explain this decison stating that they were, ‘required to be blurred by the museums for reasons pertaining to copyrights.’
After collecting all of these images by taking screenshots and cropping out the blurred images, they were emailed to oil painting reproduction companies in China (chosen for its own issues with internet censorship and for its ongoing difficulties with Google), where they were painted to the scale of the original painting. These reproductions were shipped back to the UK and now become the art work.”
