Isn’t this peaceful? A beautiful delicate garden hanging from the ceiling of an even more beautiful 17th century church in Venice? A dream world we wish we could live in forever! This installation by Swiss artists Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger was created back in 2003 for the 5oth Venice Biennial.  (Words by WetheUrban.com)

The piece immerses visitors in a magical reality of dreamy conceits—if a blossom had a mind, this is surely what it would look like. Falling Garden becomes the visitors’ collective dream of botanical liturgies and ecclesiastic whimsy.

According to the artists, the church was built as a mausoleum for a 17th-century doge (duke), who was entombed in the center, under an arrangement of skeletons and a grinning skull. To view the installation, visitors lie on the floor, or, as the artists suggest, on the gravestone’s bed. It’s the best seat in the house, a house of cascading flowers and cherub carvings.

#SPOTLIGHT: Chasing the Light by Zaria Forman

Chasing the Light is an art expedition led by artist Zaria Forman that draws inspiration from breathtaking geography to create equally striking art.

The project began in August 2012 when Forman sought to fulfill her late mother Rena’s wish to take an Arctic voyage similar to the one American painter William Bradford took in 1869. In fact, it was Forman’s mother, a painter herself, who originally conceived of the artistic journey.zariaformanchangingthelight5 zariaformanchangingthelight7

The artist says, “My hope is that these drawings bring awareness, and invite viewers to share the urgency in a hopeful and meaningful way. Art can facilitate a deeper understanding of any crisis, helping us find meaning and optimism in shifting landscapes.”

As a continuation of her work addressing climate change, Forman is currently in the Maldives for the month. She explains, “As the lowest-lying country in the world, the Maldives will likely be the first nation submerged by rising seas.”

While surfing through the vast world of the interwebs, we discovered a fairly new fresh artist by the name of Joanne Lee who takes your typical oil painting portrait and adds special new age touches, ultimately giving her works a uniqueness and electricity that is nothing short of breathtaking!  (By We The Urban.com)tumblr_mq5u5d1rxd1qaxd3co1_1280 tumblr_mrldfmUTgf1qaxd3co1_1280

Traffic Lights was captured late at night on a foggy, vacant intersection near Weimar, Germany when Zimmermann began taking 5-20 second long exposures.

He made a few minor adjustments to temperature in post-production creating the bluish tones of the green light in some of the pictures
