I just ran across some of the artwork of John Dyer Baizley. Frankly I was bowled over. I’m a huge fan of the gorgeous line work in art nouveau illustration and have tried my hand in it many times. Where I failed, John has succeeded in spades. He has moved the style from it’s existing nature meets fairies to organic death metal.

John’s a multi-talented guy. Besides creating stunning artwork, he’s also in the band Baroness.

Phantom No.14
2008
oil on canvas
180 x 230 cm / 70.86 x 90.55 in.

His paintings are somewhat disturbing. Portraits of an adult with grotesque expressions, seemingly covered in, what appears to me, the type of mucous you’d find on a baby freshly birthed.

The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology merges the concepts of lighting and art with this spectacular 3D LED piece, dubbed NOVA. Created for the institute’s 150th anniversary, the display is made up of 25000 lightballs.

Incredibly it can display 16 million colors per second. The behemoth, which weighs 3.3 tonnes, is currently displayed at the Zurich train station’s main hall, where it will live until September 2009.
