There is an island to the north-east of Australia where the cult of aircraft worshipers is widespread. Adherents of this cult believe that manufactured goods are gifts of gods sent to natives, but taken away by evil white people. Natives build long lanes and depict the behavior of airbase soldiers in ritual dances, praying that a military plane will arrive and drop cargo with goods to the American base, and the military will, once again, share with the natives. This is an example of ‘magical thinking’ so prevalent among the modern inhabitants of the civilized world.
Maurits Escher in Stairs
Maurits Cornelis Escher was a Dutch graphic artist who is known for making incredible artworks that feature mathematical and visual tricks, and show impossible objects and spaces looking believable.
Maurits Escher collage portrait is drawn in stairs because he used stairs to join different parts of his images and visually break the rules of space and gravity. Trying to find the correct understanding of Escher's spaces may be a run in infinity loop, always leading higher and higher.
Andy Warhol in Cans
Andy’s controversial work depicting realistic images of Campbell canned soup originally did not result in monetary success. The art pundits of the time did not believe an artist would reduce art to representation of commercial product akin to grocery shelves. There were only a few people who agreed to pay $100 per canvas, of the 32 total canvases on display.
Now Warhol is renowned as the father of pop-art. Between 1985 and 2010, average auction prices for Warhol's work rose 3,400%, roughly double the average increase in prices for contemporary art over the same period.
Andrey Borisov (also known as suborg) is a Russian multidisciplinary artist and developer based in Moscow. He fell in love with digital art in early childhood and never looked back. Having started with demoscene, he later developed personal philosophy and style, and began to create sophisticated digital collages.
These collages consist of a limited number of simple elements that blend together to create and represent the meaning of the big image. This produces a miracle effect in the human mind, and interacts with conscious and subconscious perceptions at the same time. The role of individual personality in history and the meaning of objects are the leitmotifs of suborg's collages.
