JPS , UK street is our first artist. JPS’s does pop culture works with a witty slogan. JPS’ often depicts iconic comic book and movie characters including Ted, Batman, Spiderman, and even Freddie Kruger and normally stencils them. Read an interview with Street Artist United States

The work below, ‘The Creation of Batman‘ was painted in a square in Buenos Aires and you may have recognised its reinterpretation of Michael Angelo’s ‘The creation of Adam’ he painted in the Sistine Chapel. God is played by The Joker and the part of Adam is played by Batman.
This artist is France based and the piece is called ‘Batman and Robin kissing’
This is actually an illustration but we thought we’ll throw it in there as we find it quite funny
With the release of yet another episode of the Star Wars saga – Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, later on this year we looked at how much artists get inspired by it and selected 10 pieces we felt were worth sharing.

You may have seen those before or you may have not. but cinemagraphs, as they are called, are hot right now in the design world, blogs and social media platforms.
We published before about this new type of media which are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs. Cinemagraphs, which are usually published in an animated GIF format, can give the illusion that the viewer is watching a video.
They are commonly produced by taking a series of photographs or a video recording, and, using image editing software, compositing the photographs or the video frames into a seamless loop of sequential frames.
We browsed the web and put together a collection of 10 awesome cinemagraphs that will amaze you hopefully.
One of the more common cinemagraphs, the pouring visual or liquid flow are high effective. For example, the pouring wine example below show that there is no imprint left on the glass or change in level from the bottle, the only movement comes from the constant flow of wine.
Another effect used in cinemagraphy is the movement of objects as the first example below shows. You can see the a train from the New York underground Subway network. Without anybody being captured in the entire scene, the train pulls into the station and departs instantly.
The term “cinemagraph” was coined by U.S. photographers Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck, who used the technique to animate their fashion and news photographs beginning in early 2011. The technique of those images existed before, it was e.g. already used for the advertisement of the game Mirror’s Edge back in 2008.
Another common effect in cinemagraphy is applied to humans or animals and can give the viewer a quirky, chilling ot event sometime quite scary output. I’ll let you be the judge of the examples below
