When you talk about the Renaissance the thing that comes to the mind is art! Magnificent art. We're talking about Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and all the ninja turtles (just kidding). And a place where you'll find concentrated art is a cathedral. Cathedrals were the perfect canvas for Renaissance artists... there you'll find amazing sculptures and breathtaking ceiling art. Those ceilings are something completely apart! So I thought it was really important to share with you some of the most amazing cathedral ceilings in the world. Of course some of these are modern cathedrals, but they still got fantastic art. These photographs were taken by some really talented people. Please, for more of their work and for the locations of each cathedral, simply click in each image. They'll definitely appreciate your visit. I hope you enjoy this selection, and if you got your own cathedral ceiling art pictures, share it with us!

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/

Yunior Hurtado is an amazing artist from Cuba. His oil painting are very alive an exotic, with a realistic look that express strong feelings through the portraits. Enjoy! For more from Yunior Hurtado visit behance.net/hurtadoart. My canvases evoke an illusion of reality starting from an algorithm containing the movement of 24 frames per second. The intention isn't photographic reference, where I conform to a photo's smooth surface, instead the objective is to capture the image's movement and endow it with character, with the volume that oil paintings are capable of offering any image. The focus of my work extends to vast number of variants where the technique fades so the the style can show, in this case, a visually pleasing bi-dimensional perspective.

Nowadays, almost every photographer use graphics software to completer the picture, like many painters used a "original version" in the past. Some artists use pure imagination to paint their artworks, other may prefer to create art by using a real life model as reference for the anatomy. What if these abstract models were real people?

Is it a photograph or a painting? It's normal to ask that question after you see some of Keng Lye's work, the level of realism on his paintings is incredible. This series is called "Alive without Breath" and it's all created by layering epoxy resin and acrylic paint. For more from Keng Lye visit his DeviantART Gallery and his Facebook. Keng uses a technique based on Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori who would paint 3D gold fish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it's such an odd process that results in something that's both a painting and sculptural. I started my first series in 2012 where all the illustrations were “flat” and depth was created using the layering of resin and acrylic over the different parts of the illustration. This year, I started on the octopus and it was purely an experiment; I just wanted to see whether I could push this technique to a higher level. After applying acrylic paint straight onto the resin, I incorporated a 3-D element in this instance, it was a small pebble for the ranchu and octopus. For the turtle, I used an egg shell for the turtle shell and acrylic paint for the rest of the finishing. The whole idea here was to give the art work an even more 3D effect therefore you can have a better view from any angle. I think there are still many other techniques to explore.
