A Stunning Watercolor Speed Painting by Agnes-Cecile

Since first discovering the work of self-taught Italian painter Silvia Pelissero aka Agnes-Cecile (previously) earlier this year, I’ve become a huge fan of her drippy, ethereal watercolor paintings. I just now learned that she’s recorded several timelapse videos showing how she creates each piece. The recent clip above shows a painting she completed over 1.5 hours as part of the 1000drawings project last month. How anyone can gain control over little pools of water like this is completely beyond me. (via booooooom)

Guest Curator at Saatchi Online

Here’s something fun. I was just asked to be a guest curator over at Saatchi Online and we did a short interview covering things like how Colossal began and my lack of wall space at home. Head on over to see the collection I put together including some of the works included above. There’s so much great art on that site it’s easy to get lost.

Tree People on the Streets of Uruguay

These are the first photographs of a collaboration between Pablo S. Herrero and David de la Mano in Montevideo, Uruguay. My guess is that David was responsible for painting the figurative pieces while Pablo filled them in with his signature trees. (via street art utopia)

Reconfigured Currency Collages by Chad Person

Artist Chad Person, creator of the post-apocalyptic shelter experiment the Resource Exhaustion Crisis Evacuation Safety Shelter that managed to ruffle the feathers of the ATF when he built an improvised shotgun sculpture, has shifted focus to ongoing series of collages made from United States currency. Some of the earliest pieces are part of his TaxCut series, a tongue-in-cheek title stemming from his ability to write off the destroyed currency as part of his taxes. His most recent piece, the kraken shown above, will be on display as part of a group exhibition at Joshua Liner Gallery starting April 19.
