The 2017 Pirelli Calendar is continuing last year’s tradition of celebrating women beyond glitz and glamour with pared down images by German photographer Peter Lindbergh. The legendary photographer is the first to helm the project three times and titled the series of black and white shots Emotional.
If you were impressed by Joe Hill’s 3D street murals, you’ll appreciate Eduardo Rolero’s shockingly amazing street art illusions. The Argentina native travels across the globe, sharing his gift of surreal imagery on the streets. There’s a certain life-like quality to the visuals he produces, because of their three-dimensional appearance, yet he maintains an illustrative aesthetic.
Rolero’s work doesn’t limit his artistic vision to realistic imitations on a 2D platform as most 3D muralists do. Instead, the artist creates a visual with depth, while sustaining his unique graphic design. The unusual illusions are even more interesting as real people and animals interact with them, breathing life into the pieces. The balance between surreal imagery and realism that Rolero has attained is really noteworthy. It’s as if strange comic book characters have actually crossed over into our realm!
