These stunning illustrations are from the series “Geometrics” by Japan based artist Daas. His work is full of vibrant colors with a balanced geometric design that mostly represents animals and insects.

“The geometric shapes, colors and lines used to define the artwork are a result of my fascination with patterns in nature, architecture and fragmented light, combining all these elements in my mind and developing ideas on how to use them in my work.” – Daas

Daas however is not the first to create amazing geometric portraits of animals, similarly artist Mat Mabe also created stunning illustrations of geometric shapes depicting animals.

Based in Mexico City, street artist Favio Martinez, aka Curiot, creates these masterpieces that are somewhere between the lines of an anamorphic beast and an ancestral deity. With each beast representing emotions brought out from his childhood and culture shift, Curiot explains:

“Growing up in the States sort of gave me a diluted Mexican culture, I had no clue what I was missing out on until I moved back 10 years ago”, says Curiot. “The bright colors, folklore, ancient cultures and the beautiful handcrafts are some of the things that I embraced and which influence my work deeply”

You can find more of his works on his Tumblr, and his Flickr page. (Via Colossal)

Mark Barone is a painter who knows the pain of losing a dear pet. When his partner Marina began researching to adopt a new dog she came across loads of information on how many dogs die each day at kill shelters across America. 5,500 shelter dogs are killed every day in the United States. When Marina shared this information with Barone he didn’t want to see it,  “Two days later, he said, ‘I have a really clear vision of what I want to do to solve the problem.'” Barone set out to give those animals a face by committing to paint 5,500 portraits of shelter dogs, using photos of the animals from shelter websites from around the country.

Over two years into the project now, Barone has more than 3,500 portraits complete. Most of the dogs are painted on 12″x12″ wood panels. To find out more about Mark Barone’s ultimate goal for these paintings please visit his website “An Act of Dog”.

Play with the moon

Night_Sky_1
Ron Miller used this view of the moon over Death Valley, California, as the basis for his images.

 

Night_Sky_6
The former NASA art director imagined how Neptune would look from earth if it was the same distance away as the moon.

 

Night_Sky_5
Saturn and its rings would cover almost 18 degrees of the night sky, according to Mr Miller’s calculations.

 

Night_Sky_4
Uranus would look a similar size to Neptune.

 

Night_Sky_3
Venus is only slighter smaller than earth so would appear around the same size as our planet does from the moon.

 

Night_Sky_2 
The diameter of Jupiter is 40 times that of the moon and it would dominate the night sky if it were in the same position.

 

Ron Miller is a conceptual space artist and former art director at the National Air & Space Museum. He came up with this series of illustrations that shows us what the night sky would look like if the moon was replaced by the other planets in the solar system. “The main liberty I took was to ignore the effect on Earth of having a very large planet nearby,” Miller says. “In the case of Jupiter, for instance, this would be devastating.” (via Fast Company)
