Papercut Installation by UfoCinque

on Flickr

Matteo Capobianco, aka Ufo5, was born in Novara in 1981. Originally an active member of the Italian writing scene, he gradually began to embrace a more extensive definition of street art while completing his design studies at the Politecnico of Milan.

As a firm believer in the endless possibilities of the mural as a communication tool, Matteo began to experiment with different techniques beyond the restrictions that writing as a codified subculture was putting in place.

Central to Ufocinque’s vision is his layering tehcnique: each element blending traditional painting techniques with a project-oriented attitude in which multiple levels of interpretation are intertwined together. Form is never detached from function as they are sustaining each other to create an effortlessly beautiful world.

I don’t think art is about expression. I don’t think that’s its primary motive. The primary motivation is communion with your fellow human beings. So it’s very frustrating to make something and nobody notices it. If you put on a play and nobody comes to it, did you really put on a play? But you just keep going. You remind yourself that people have been doing this as long as there have been people. And your frustrations and disappointments are nothing new. And you go back to the wheel. By Nic Pizzolatto, in this article by andrewromanoInside the Obsessive, Strange Mind of True Detective’s Nic Pizzolatto. (via bookoisseur)

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

One might argue that, to many of these bastards, they feel entitled, especially if it violates of humiliates her in the process.

Historic Black and White Pictures Restored in Color 

The history of photography is only about two hundred years old and the period when it was possible to take coloured pictures is a lot shorter than that. However, colour makes us perceive the image we view as more realistic. Fortunately, there are communities of colourizing black and white photography enthusiasts, such as  r/ColorizedHistory , that bring us emotionally closer to our roots with their work.
