Joseph Lorusso, Soft Eyes
I’ve seen this painting around several times and I am serious when I say it is my biggest source of inspiration, I literally let out a little sigh every time
Here’s my latest model. It took about 3 months to build it, like the other ones. It’s in a 1:200 scale and is made of a 200g/m2 paper. I painted it with watercolour. It was quite hard to get it to balance, that’s why I put a small stone in the lower building. There was a lot of work with it…a lot. raskolnikov0610
Citipati, Lord of the Cemetery, is a Tibetan Buddhist figure which loosely represents intertwined male and female skeletons. These two androgynous figures which together form Citipati are considered to be guardians of cemeteries and are honored by semiannual ritualistic dances. As Citipati is comprised of the two halves of the human body, man and woman, the figure is also said to symbolize the counterparts of the human life cyle, birth and Death.

Wow, Take it easy, USA.
Some of these bills from artist James Charles are worth risking a 6 month stint in the big house.
The above works are from his “333 Portraits on the Devil’s Toilet Paper” solo show currently on view NYC’s Art Now Gallery through September 28th.
Also represented by San Francisco’s Shooting Gallery, James Charles is a known fixture in the realm of money artists, cutting, cross hatching, and defacing our Lincolns, Hamiltons, Jacksons, & Benjamins, into pop culture phenoms
