Chinese artist Yong Yongchun just recently completed the longest and largest 3D painting in the world. The record-setting painting is 1,200 feet long and 24 feet wide. In total the square footage is more than twice the size of an NBA basketball court. The painting, which is located at the Communication University of China in Nanjing, was created for the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics that are taking place this October. The cityscape is almost 1,000 feet longer than the previous record holder which is located in London.

Most people will never even see a fraction of $ 43.8 million in their lifetime, let alone pay that amount for something like a painting. An incredibly simple painting at that. I don’t mean to knock Barnett Newman, the man behind the piece of art, but this seems pretty ridiculous. I know, I know, art is open to interpretation & what not, but $ 43.8 million for this? I’ll let you be the judge. Check out the Sotheby’s listing here.

I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that this was painted using fingerprints on an iPad. Kyle Lambert is the very talented artist behind this photorealistic image of Morgan Freeman. Just watch it and prepare to be in awe.

This short video tells the story of New York’s “Wall Dogs.” Wall Dogs are the artists who are responsible for the gigantic painted murals you see all over NYC’s buildings. This artistic form of advertising has been around since the 1800s and from the looks of this video it’s going to be around for several years to come.
Now this is a pretty sweet video. Wouldn’t it be dope if you could actually do this with lights?
