Artist Shintaro Ohata Seamlessly Blends Sculpture and Canvas to Create 3D Paintings

When first viewing the artwork of Shintaro Ohata up close it appears the scenes are made from simple oil paints, but take a step back and you’re in for a surprise. Each piece is actually a hybrid of painted canvas and sculpture that blend almost flawlessly in color and texture to create a single image. The cinematic figures are sculpted from polystyrene while the backgrounds are made from traditional painting techniques.

You realize you are not alone, right? No one in their twenties has life figured out. It’s okay to be a mess. You’re living.
Things my therapist told me today that almost made me burst out into tears. I need to remember this more often.

Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581

Ilya Repin

This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son in Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face.

This is my favorite painting ever and I hereby vow to always share it whenever I come across it.

I have seen this painting in Moscow. It’s absolutely breathtaking in person. So grotesquely beautiful.

Work until your idols become your rivals.
