French artist Nicholas Aubery decided to dream up what would happen if you combine steampunk, futurism, fantasy and images of famous singers - this is how the series of prints "The Dark Side of Divas." Adele, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and other famous ladies became the heroines of this project. However, the project can be called successful only in part - there are too many smiles, butterflies and flowers for real gloominess.
Nicholas Aubery (Nicolas Obery) knows a lot about using halftones: his monochrome black and white work is easily recognizable due to the mix of styles and the abundance of fantastic details. Using Adobe Photoshop, the artist stitches different images together to create a single composition. Many users of this program "indulge" in collages, but not everyone succeeds in creating them so stylishly and harmoniously.
For his work, Nicholas Aubery uses portraits created by the masters of the art of photography. One of these true masters of his craft is Tom Munro. Although the photographer himself says that he was just damn lucky, and one day he woke up successful and famous. In our review " Portraits of stars from the legendary photographer"you can see photos of Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga, Tom Cruise, Keanu Reeves and many others.

It is not clear what is more terrible for an artist - not to become famous at all, or to flare up with one role or a hit and fade away. The higher the popularity of a hit, the more likely it is that this level of success will never be achieved. A huge number of hits, to which someone danced at school discos, others met their love, experienced partings and other key emotions for a growing personality, are not just not forgotten, but refer to the time "twelve years ago."

Exhibition "Free: Contemporary Art After Frida Kahlo" ("Unbound: Contemporary Art After Frida Kahlo")
Frida Kahlo is one of the first names that come to mind when it comes to women who changed the history of visual arts. The fearless surrealist has acquired an almost mythical status. At times, the amazing story of her life even overshadows the glory of her paintings, although, of course, they cannot be separated
Even in an era when the world was fragmented (at least, it was impossible to board a plane and download a book on the Internet - too), an educated person knew the literature not only of his country, but also of his neighbors, and even distant countries. And in our time it is all the more worth knowing the most important names. For example, five iconic Persian poets who influenced both Eastern and Western culture
The icon painting style created for the depiction of saints and Christ is aimed at displaying a different reality. Therefore, in the icon, the portrait resemblance of a saint to a person who actually lived once is not in principle, since it reflects a transformed person who is in the upper world. But after all, the saints once lived on earth, they were like us, they ate and drank and had practically the same problems as modern man
