Surreal imagery by Portuguese illustrator are as surrealist as ever.

The plant and animal world are quite distinct even though they are codependents. the owl finds home in the trees, the Tiger prowls the jungle in search of prey, or the polar bear in its natural habitat, this illustrator finds a way to blend both seemlessly in quirky surreal ways.

vlcsnap-2016-12-07-11h17m11s455.png

Magnum design poster, made from little pieces of apple slices , chocolates bits and apple  chops , dyed with coffee and food coloring , the latest in a series of  projects for Philippines based Visual Artist and paper cutter  Patrick Cabral .

The poster featured much of his present preoccupation  combining his own peculiar style of kirigami ( Japanese paper cutting art form )  a little more of new experiences gained from his foray into realm of matte artistry.

To help commemorate the occasion, Magnum Philippines had tapped Patrick to help create art inspired by “Make Your Own “  Magnum’s promise of creating bespoke pleasure using various ingredients, dips and sauces.

But picking patrick was no chance.  His  previous works stood out. They  include an on-going series on instagram ,exploring various  animal form in layered papers , cut to a delicate execution and stacked to reveal a complete structure .

”  I want to provide a contrast of soft materials to a predator , patrick had said  “also to venture more on the endangered species in the future, and hopefully show how fragile some species are and how close they are to extinction “

Magnum opened its third Magnum Pleasure Store at SM Seaside City in Cebu, Philippines, last November .

It’s a first of its kind artwork that pushes the boundaries of paper cutting. The project took 80 hours to cut papers, 3 days to paint the layers and 1 day to add buffer between the layers so the depth will be more pronounced. Each paper color is precisely matched to a specific topping found at the Magnum Pleasure Store and represents the myriad of customized pleasures found in Magnum Cebu.

Pencil sketches of the aussie national animal has been popping all around southern Australia for a while now. Recently at the famous South Australian Museum  where a public curation of the best potrait of kangaroos took place . Poise , vibrant and concise , the artwork captures wild kangaroos in unique poses. The creator artist Micheal Chorney is a Australian of Ukrainian heritage based in Adelaide.

And, his present exhibition is the combination of an intimate study of character of the Australian Kangaroo consisting of numerous drawings from 2014 and ongoing. In this series,he  concentrates on an up close and personal understanding of the nature of Australian Kangaroos and  captures the essence of their unique characters in an expressive highly energetic manner in black on white drawings on frame stretched paper.

Graduated from the ‘South Australian School of Art’ in 1976 majoring in fine art painting , Micheal worked in theatrical set construction which then led to many years in the film industry as a Scenic Artist / Set designer on various productions such as “Mad Max 3”, “Gallipolis”, “Fortress”, “The Year of Living Dangerously”, “Street fighter”. My career in the industry peaked in 1994.

He presently run the design outfit ‘Chorney Studios’ which to this day has the core activity of Design and Construction of water features, sculpture and paintings for private and corporate collectors.

Around the world with cities Geometries ; can you spot your city ?

Photographer Benjamin Grant has set off on a mission to change the way we see our planet with his stunning photo project

Our project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That’s the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire.

From our line of sight on the earth’s surface, it’s impossible to fully appreciate the beauty and intricacy of the things we’ve constructed, the sheer complexity of the systems we’ve developed, or the devastating impact that we’ve had on our planet. We believe that beholding these forces as they shape our Earth is necessary to make progress in understanding who we are as a species, and what is needed to sustain a safe and healthy planet.

As a result, the Overviews (what we call these images) focus on the places and moments where human activity—for better or for worse—has shaped the landscape. Each Overview starts with a thought experiment. We consider the places where man has left his mark on the planet and then conduct the necessary research to identify locations (and the corresponding geo-coordinates) to convey that idea.

The mesmerizing flatness seen from this vantage point, the surprising comfort of systematic organization on a massive scale, or the vibrant colors that we capture will hopefully turn your head. However, once we have that attention, we hope you will go beyond the aesthetics, contemplate just exactly what it is that you’re seeing, and consider what that means for our planet.The results are so amazing, Grant has even put together a book of over 200 high-resolution satellite photographs. It’s titled “Overview: A New Perspective of Earth”, and can be purchased through Amazon.

ITALY

The town of Palmanova, Italy is recognized by its concentric layout known as a star fort. The rationale for this construction was that an attack on any individual wall could be defended from the two adjacent star points by shooting the enemy from behind. The three rings that surround Palmanova were completed in 1593, 1690, and 1813.

Washington DC , USA

The urban plan for Washington, D.C. – the L’Enfant Plan – was developed in 1791 by Major Pierre Charles L’Enfant for George Washington, the first President of the United States. L’Enfant designed a compass-aligned grid for the city’s streets, with intersecting diagonal avenues that were later named after the states of the union. The diagonal avenues also intersect with the north-south and east-west streets at circles and rectangular plazas in order to create more open, green spaces. Lastly, L’Enfant laid out a 400 foot-wide (122 meter) garden-lined “grand avenue” – what is now know as the National Mall – that connects the US Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial (the latter two are visible at right in this Overview).

We compared the Human Eyes against other Animals. The result will shock you.

Have you ever wondered what you look like in the eyes of your dog? Or even how a bee sees the world? The vision of every kind of animal on Earth is unique, and some can even see what we can’t. We at ausquerry  decided to show you how different animals see the world around them. crawling the web for pictures between the way some pets see the world and us.

#1 Dogs

downloads1

                                                                         Dogs                                      Human                               

Dogs have poor vision; their eyes aren’t sensitive to a majority of colors, and they see the world in a somewhat faded way. On the other hand, they can see very well at night. They have a well-developed sense of perspective and depth, and their eyes are more sensitive to movement.

#2  Fish

downloads2                       Fishes                                                                                                  Human

Your ordinary tank-dwelling fish can see in ultraviolet, and everything in close proximity is magnified. That’s probably why so many fish look surprised all the time.

#3 Snakes

Snakes generally have poor vision, but they can see thermal radiation at night ten times better than any modern infrared technology. During the day, however, they only react to movement — if their prey doesn’t move, they won’t catch it.

#4 Mice and rats

                                                          Animals                                                                    Humans

Each of a mouse’s eyes moves independently, so they see two separate pictures. The world for them is blurred, slow-moving, and tinged a blue-green color.

#5 Cows

                                            Animals                                                                          Humans

For roaming cows, their pastures aren’t green but appear orange and red. But they do see everything slightly magnified.

#6 Horses

A horse’s eyes are positioned on the side of its head. This helps warn them of any danger. But this also has its disadvantages: these animals never see what’s right in front of their noses.

#7 Bees

                                                          Animals                                                                  Humans

Bees comprehend the world three times faster than humans do. They also see ultraviolet rays that we’re unable to.

#8 Flies

                                                      Animals                                                                   Humans

Flies have faceted vision. This can be comprehended in terms of having thousands of tiny eyes that work together to create one image. They can see ultraviolet rays, and the world moves somewhat slower for them compared to humans.

#9 Sharks

                                             Animals                                                                        Humans

Underwater predators such as sharks can’t see any colors, but their vision underwater is much sharper than ours.

#10  Chameleons

                                             Animals                                                                             Humans

Chameleons are interesting creatures not only because of their appearance but also because their eyes can move independently of each other. This gives them 360º vision.

#11 Night geckos

                                                     Animals                                                                  Humans

These lizards have true night vision. They can see 350 times better at night than humans can.

#12 Butterflies

                                                     Animals                                                          Humans

Butterflies are amazing insects. Their vision isn’t very sharp, but they can see many more colors and shades than human beings can, including ultraviolet light.

Iconic directors are remade as sculptures of their famous movies: Guess who is the banana ?

American visual artist Mike Leavitt is a huge movie fan. To honor his favourite directors, Mike carved 16 wooden figures. However, their shapes are rather unusual, because the artist merged famous movie makers with iconic characters from their films.

“Great film directors get cut up,” Mike explains on his website. “They take pains with the details, story, money and sacrifices to their vision. Their body succumbs to the pressure.”

All figures are 1:4 in scale, and 18 inches tall or wide, sculpted from scratch in wood and polymer clay. “Art and film treat my pain. They’re magic. They trick me into remembering why this world is so damn beautiful,” Mike adds. 17.5k instagram followers

Horrible reality if we switch places with Animals

What have we not done to them?

we have boiled , cooked , fatten and even removed their skins for fashion and horns, tusk for ornaments.  what if they are us? By some weird happenstance the animals wine up on the top of the food chain and not us? how would we feel to be skinned and chopped,  and packed into unhygienic places  before slaughter to reduced the cost of Burgers.

We at Ausquerry happen to crawled the web for scenarios where animals switched roles; and are every bit as cruel .Although an utopia where meat isn’t eaten isn’t possible,, but this hope to drive home the very troubling issues of animal cruelty.  Just because we eat them doesn’t mean we have to treat them bad.
