I'm sure you know a great artist near your home, or in your hometown, or a friend of a friend that make art as no one else. When I found this kind of artist I think "the world should know this guy!". And that is the case of Carlos Carpinelli, an artist from my city in Brazil. His painting are absolutely astonishing and it deserve all your attention. The art is focused on waves and the ocean, the small details make all the difference and bring realism to the painting. I think how hard must be to work with those small pencils and try to imagine how much time to make a single piece like these. Check out the pictures and don't forget to know more about his work on the links at the end! The addiction for surf made me change my life, even at 13 years I had two passions: surfing and art, competing in local tournaments and drawing for surf brands, kept me connected to this lifestyle forever and through him I got to know some of the most perfect waves in the world. About Carlos Carpinelli Check more about his art on Instagram, Facebook and carpinelli-art.com. The result of all this inspiration can be seen in my paintings, whose main theme the perfect waves and beautiful places where I have or just imagined, using acrylic paint matt water based on screen, only with brushes and unused airbrush.
Digital painting is a big thing... we get to see it all the time, and it's great because we all love good art, right? But it's always great when we get to see some stunning traditional paintings like these by Mexican painter Eduardo Calzado. He's got a mind blowing style. These are so awesomely painted that it's just crazy to know these where done in the traditional way with paint and all. Here you can see just a few of Eduardo's pieces. For more of it, please visit his portfolio at DeviantART. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

The Nike symbol, also known as the Swoosh, is one of the most important icons of modern culture. The simplicity is memorable and we can spot and identify anywhere around the globe. Now, imagine merging this iconic logo with a classic painting from the Baroque and Renaissance? The guys behind Swooshart http://swooshart.tumblr.com/ have been making that reality. It's somewhat of a clash of ideologies and styles but in my opinion they look awesome. For more information visit: http://swooshart.tumblr.com/
