Using his incredible photographic and climbing skills, he produces trails of color that cover the height of the high rocks and walls he explores. To do so, Rasmussen attaches LED lights to his body and leaves the shutter of his camera open. He then quickly makes his way through the chosen rock. “I have to climb as fast as I can to get the “fluid” look I’m looking for” Rasmussen explained. The resulting effect looks like a ball of energy vibrating in short bursts across the landscape. The result is simply dazzling and amazing.

Incredible Giant Flowers Art Installation http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/18/incredible-giant-flowers-art-installation-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/18/incredible-giant-flowers-art-installation-2/#respond Fri, 18 Sep 2020 10:24:09 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=940308 The Kosovar artist Petrit Halilaj created a fantastic, very introspective installation for his first solo exhibition at the Palacio de Cristal de la Reina Sofía in Madrid. Inspired by the courtship rituals of the birds of paradise, which are known for their complex seduction rituals in which they build up staged scenes to attract a partner, he hung huge flowers inside the glass conservatory.

Halilaj’s work often addresses the themes of home, love and cultural identity. This time the artist uses nature to construct a very personal narrative. The large forsythia, palm seeds, cherry blossoms, poppies, carnations and lilies hanging from the roof were constructed from steel and canvas in collaboration with Halilaj’s life companion, Álvaro Urbano.

“I wanted to design the Palacio de Cristal as a place to celebrate love,” said Halilaj.

Colorful Tropical Fish http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/15/colorful-tropical-fish-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/15/colorful-tropical-fish-2/#respond Tue, 15 Sep 2020 16:09:03 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=940246 Based in Honolulu, Hawaii, Colleen Wilcox creates colorful pieces such as acrylics on canvas for example. Her creations are inspired by life on the islands, and the beauty of nature among other sources. She uses design elements gleaned for her outside explorations and incorporates vibrant colors, organic forms, and bold lines to bring energy and movement. In her new series « Tropical Fish », the artist used wonderful and bright colors to depict the beauty of different species from her home of Hawaii.

« A few years ago I painted a sea shell collection on wood and I really enjoyed the process of learning about the types of shells found in Hawaii, and recreating paintings of them from photos. This time I decided to do another collection on wood featuring reef fish found in the islands », she explains. To do so, she swam and snorkeled a lot to be inspired by the beauty and diversity of her local beaches. « I enjoyed researching different types of fish found in Hawaii, including ones I haven’t seen before, and learning about their unique characteristics », she adds.

« Painting on wood made the colors look bright, and not including a background was a simple change from my usual canvas paintings », Wilcox explains. While making this series, the artist liked how the thick wood canvases she used could stand on their own and be arranged in the owner’s house without a need to hang on the wall.

Called Hothouse, the pavilion was created to draw attention to the rising temperatures caused by climate change, which will allow many tropical fruits to be grown outdoors in London over the next 30 years. An innovative social design project that can only make us think about the creation of a new urban environment.

Julie Simon’s Incredible Cakes http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/15/julie-simons-incredible-cakes-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/15/julie-simons-incredible-cakes-2/#respond Tue, 15 Sep 2020 21:15:56 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=940263 It is not always obvious at first glance that Julie Simon’s creations are in fact cakes. Some look almost too real to be eaten. Between reproductions of famous paintings such as the “Portrait of Adèle Bloch-Bauer”, by Gustave Klimt and delicate flowers, the chef lacks neither inspiration nor talent. In their company “JSC” (Julie Simon Cakes), Julie Simon and Gillian Wynn, Chief executive, have combined their mutual love of art, food, entertaining and all things beautiful. They share a passion for bringing delight and magic into people’s lives.

British Seaside during the 2020 Staycation by Alex Micu http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/15/british-seaside-during-the-2020-staycation-by-alex-micu-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/15/british-seaside-during-the-2020-staycation-by-alex-micu-2/#respond Tue, 15 Sep 2020 12:47:23 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=940226 Rain or shine, the British have always had a penchant for their coastal towns. But over the past half century, the number of visitors has declined as cheap flights have allowed thousands of people to enjoy the good weather elsewhere.

However, in 2020, the year of forced “staycation”, these traditional places have seen the return of many vacationers, which prompted the London photographer Alex Micu to document them. By visiting two coastal towns of Kentish throughout August, he wanted to show the British side during this particular period.

“As you probably know, coastal towns in the UK are an ecosystem in their own right: they were left in a state of neglect and disarray after the democratization of vacations in the 1970s and 1980s and have never really recovered from that,” he says. “They are ruins that express a sense of Britannicity that you don’t see anywhere else. People make the most of the changing weather, the pebble beaches and the fish & chips”.

The Best Bird Photographer of 2020 http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/14/the-best-bird-photographer-of-2020-2/ http://www.fubiz.net/en/2020/09/14/the-best-bird-photographer-of-2020-2/#respond Mon, 14 Sep 2020 12:17:13 +0000 http://www.fubiz.net/?p=940191 For the fifth year, the nature protection association Birds on the Brink organized the competition for the bird photographer of the year. Pictures from all over the world were submitted to the jury in different categories. Kuwaiti photographer Majed AlZa’abi won first prize and was awarded £5,000.

His artistic portrait of the European knights on the Norwegian island of Vardø captured the jury’s attention not only for its poetic dimension but also for the ethological particularity of the photography, which perfectly illustrates the behavior of these birds.

“We are looking for the cliché that will drive us crazy, that moves us almost unanimously, if you capture this image, then you have a chance to win. When the judges collectively exclaimed “I wish I had taken that myself,” you focused the lens. Congratulations Majed for sharing this amazing image with us – it’s a well deserved winner,” said the judges.
