Russian artist Daria—known as dahhhanart—shows off her elaborately decorated plates via her Instagram. At once delicate and complex, she employs a dot painting technique that combines acrylics, enamel, and appliquéd gems. The results are stunning, each plate replete with detail. This form of pointillism, also known as point to point painting, requires patience and a steady hand. Daria’s feed provides plenty of work in progress images.
What better way is there to honor the past than this? By placing an older photo into a present day shot, these creative photographers have given us a unique, one-of-a-kind experience. On Flickr there’s actually a group for this called Looking Into the Past. It’s like taking a beautiful and haunting trip down memory lane.
