'The disasters of war'
Hello, my lovelies!
I have to study like crazy right now, but you know... procrastinating is your best friend when you have an exam in a few hours. And another one the day after. And... yes, procrastinating.
In modern days it is really hard to impress me with the old traditional ways of drawing on a paper with a black pencil, because photoshop made you think out of the box and beyond galaxies with all the unlimited opportunities you have in the digital world, but just now i accidently stumbled upon an amazing modern artist, Laurie Lipton, who still uses her black pencil to draw beautiful unreal, and at the same time painfully real pictures. I love it when no words are needed, it just goes BAM and you understand the story, why, when, how... Well, this is what Laurie's picture are like. They might be too much for some, but they are strikingly terrifying yet nonetheless beautiful at the same time. Some make you think, re-think and think again. And the more you understand the drawing, the more the realness of it dwells on you. You know the saying a picture's worth a thousand words? Here's some pictures of this talented artist who tells you real-life stories with her shockingly unreal visuals.
'Tete a Tete'
This was just a mere drop in the ocean of Laurie Lipton's works , visit her official webpage http://www.laurielipton.com/drawings/ to see her unlimited talents.
So, did you find her works beautiful, even if it is a beauty that is more terrifying? If you did, share with me what are your favorite works!! The pictures i posted here are my favorites of hers, but the list tops 'The disasters of war' at the very-very top. I can't even explain how much i love that work. How the name twists the whole story of the picture. The war going on in the picture. The everyday war we all are living through. The war against ourselfs. Against reality. And how the war ends. Day by day. And only we are at fault. Our dreams, desicions, choices. I get shivers down my spine seeing that picture! Deep man, deep. And with so much strength. just BAM!
Also, 'Love Bite'. The strong visuals and the strong message. wow. I love 'Pandora's Box' for how perfectly perfect it reflects the human being.
I must say, i am really overhelmed with emotions seeing all these shocking pictures. So beautiful, so real, so striking.
