Tales from the Present: Amongst Other Things

Ask me anything   My thoughts, loves, hates and sense of humor are all collected here.

cross-connect:

Igor Skaletsky aka igorska born 1978 in Voronezh, Russia is a painter/collage artist. He studied at the Surikov Moscow State Academic Art Institute and began his adventures in collage only a few years ago. In 1990 Skaletsky immigrated to Israel.

Skaletsky combines traditional painting techniques with contemporary technologies. He draws his inspiration from iconic art works, and gives them his own modern interpretation, thus creating a hybrid image separated from time, place and context.

Collage for me is a technique that widens possibilities to express myself. I think photography and painting perfectly complement each other and combining them, one can achieve an effect which is impossible in ”pure” traditional technique. Collage is unique in its ability to organically combine things which, at first glance, are absolutely incompatible and do not represent any artistic value in themselves. I like the moment when isolated pieces of paper suddenly start “playing” with each other when I put them in the common living space of collage.

To see more of Igor Skaletsky’s intriguing work, visit his profile (igorska) on Deviant Art and on Behance.

Owls confirmed to be the creepiest birds ever. LOOK AT THE FUCKING THINGS. If you fail to notice the one on the left fucking SWALLOWING a rat, then you have the dude singing some satanic chant or something next to him, and then you have those two other fucking psychos synchronized to make you feel creeped the fuck out with their soulless dance of FUCKING DOOM.

I really am tempted to reblog this every time it’s on my dash. That description is one of the best things on the internet.



Yeahhhh, I want this on my blog again.

The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.
