The guys from Corridor Crew are usually wowing us with their visual effects work. But in this video, they took a break from creating art with computers and broke out real canvases to take a painting lesson from Bob Ross. But instead of acrylics or oils, they painted their happy little scenes with sauces and condiments. We can only imagine how the studio smelled after this.
Artist Cole Newman uses the power of physics to make large-format paintings. He starts by swinging a can of paint over a moving canvas. Different geometric patterns emerge depending on the velocity and angle of both the can and the canvas. The process does make quite a mess on the floor, but the result is worth it.
Cariuma’s four low-top sneakers sporting classic Van Gogh paintings are masterpieces for your feet. Bright yellow sunflowers in white leather or off-white canvas, pink floral canvas, and wheat fields with crows shoes were created with Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum for its 50th anniversary.

Watch the 60-second view of the canvas here.
Artist Paul Kenton paints colorful modern cityscapes. His creative approach involves splattering paint onto a canvas to lay in the backgrounds, adding details with a palette knife, and letting the drips of paint become watery reflections at the bottom. Watch as he transforms an abstract mess of paint into an impressive rainy day scene of NYC.

Nerdforge has impressed us with their amazing PC case builds and bookbinding. In this video, Martina ponders how to determine the optimal time to spend on a project by painting the same scene over three different periods. Is there a point of diminishing returns, or do things just keep getting better?
Multimedia artist René Patrick Martinez created the work Unraveling Mercedes, a fascinating piece of art that incorporates multiple images of a person from inception through the end of their life.

Spray-painted art is usually pretty imprecise. But the unnamed artist in this clip shows off an impressive amount of control as they painted a portrait by modulating the spatter from a thin line of spray paint, much like the lines produced by a dot-matrix printer. The technique is amazing, but that face is a little creepy.

Vincent van Gogh’s painting Starry Night is famous for its swirly brushstrokes.

Artist PEJAC created this outdoor work, which looks like a giant crack has formed in the concrete, but upon closer inspection is actually an ant-like colony of thousands of tiny people. The work, titled Social Distancing appears outside Valdecilla Hospital in Santander, Spain. Be sure to visit the artist’s website and Instagram.
It took CG Geek almost a month of work, but he managed to create a digital 3D environment inspired by the style of artist Bob Ross. Instead of paint, he photo-scanned real-world nature imagery to create textures for his happy little trees. We love how he makes it sound so easy.
You could hang a hunter’s trophy on your wall, or perhaps choose something a little more friendly to animals with this colorful, abstract image of a powerful stag.
