just saw these pieces on yahoo and I thought I share them with you as I really liked the idea.







the collection is called pencil vs camera and you can check out for more on his website:
http://benheine.com/pencilvscamera.html

Where you can also find another collection called Digital Circlism which looks a bit like a mosaic. I especially like the Leopard.

Brilliant :cool: Thanks for the post, Heike :)

Here's more ... in the same vein. (photographs of skyscrapers composed to form ... the alphabets! It's entitled "Type the Sky.")

And here we go, already copied by the "creative industry", a Renault add holding credits

Advertising Agency: Lowe Porta, Santiago, Chile
Art Directors: Cristián Kemp, Andreas Orellana
Copywriter: Gonzalo Baeza

but not Lisa Rienermann, who did the original for her studies...

But maybe she sold the font, comes up in other car ads as well.

There is a character in the TV series Six Feet Under who wants to be an artist and she did something very similar to what that guy called Heine did. Coincidence?

never seen that series. maybe it would help if you tell us the name of that character/artist? Maybee they also used Heines Art for the series?

just gotta dig out this thread again, as Heine combined well not paintings but drawings with photography

just saw this on El País



this is in Bilbao by the german artist Johan Lorbeer

El artista alemán, Johan Lorbeer, ha realizado una de sus 'performances' urbanas, en la que ha permanecido 'colgado' y aparentemente flotando a tres metros del suelo en la fachada principal de la Alhóndiga de Bilbao. (Foto: EFE, Alfredo Aldai)

today by coincidence I saw a spot of spanish company "Caser seguros" that reminded me strongly in the works of Liu Bolin, but watch yourself:

A friend of mine does this kind of stuff with another guy. He takes a picture while other other guy does the painting.
