Sergei Polunin, “Take Me to Church” by Hozier – Directed by David LaChapelle

Polunin directed by David LaChapelle

Ukranian ballet dancer Sergei Polunin has performed his stunning visual interpretation of Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” and it’s so good, you have to see it to believe it.

Directed by David LaChapelle, the atmospheric video sees the 25-year-old pirouette and sauté to the chart-topping anti-gay oppression anthem, against a beautiful backdrop of a studio amongst the trees.

Former British Royal Ballet principal dancer Polunin performs dressed only in nude tights, as sunlight glimmers through the white room’s arched windows, creating a spiritual effect.

His passionate four-minute sequence reflects the demons of Hozier’s hit and showcases his impressive artistry and skill.

Surfboards art – Jerryn Dower.

Jarryn-Dower-Surfboard-Art-8-600x617

What happens to old surfboards when they’re old, leaky and ready for retirement? If they’re really lucky, they’re given to Australian artist Jerryn Dower who gives them a new life as slick wall art… or hey, stick it in the sand.

Growing up by the ocean, Dower’s art revolves mainly around beach and surf culture. Most of the works here were done with paint pen and employ a meticulously applied stippling technique for their smooth gradients. You can see more of his fine pieces, or hit him up for a commissioned piece, on Facebook.

b4-XVI – Cecilia Azcarate.

A new art history inspired Tumblr entered the universe yesterday, courtesy of f Tumblr veteranCecilia Azcarate. Ikea b4-16 finds classic Ikea items in paintings made before 1650 and most of the results are surprisingly spot-on.

With art history’s iconic holy moments happening frequently in the home, it’s no wonder Azcarate found so much material to work with. Her Tumblr is a great exercise in looking past the divine action in the foreground to take in the exquisite detail in these Northern works. Our only criticism is that we wish she had identified all of the works she used as source material, in addition to linking to the Ikea furniture.

Adidas presents its collaboration with performance artist Marina Abramović, unveiling a short film by SHOWstudio that celebrates the performance brand’s partnership and support of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
The three-minute video captures the first ever re-staging of Abramović’s 1978 performance ‘Work relation’ – which focuses on commitment, teamwork and the strength found in togetherness – re-imagined through the lens of the popular quadrennial sporting event. in the reenacted piece, eleven performers reference the total members of a football team.
Together, the performers harness the fundamental principles of the sports world – teamwork, discipline and perseverance — to once again transport stones from one side of the room to the other.
Using only buckets and human labor, the three models compare and contrast systems of cooperation and efficiency, with the participants’ bodies serving as the medium.

The Grading Thaime – Squeezymo.

Teachers all over the world should take notes from the Grading Thaime drawing series. It is a collection of exam papers that have been doodled on by students and then hilariously elaborated on by their teacher, Redditor Squeezymo. Creative, fun and collaborative, the Grading Thaime drawing series injects a bit of imagination into the testing system one sketch at a time. Not to mention that it brings teacher and students closer together in a playful way.

Of course, the Grading Thaime drawing series isn’t all about fun and games. At times, the teacher sends along little messages that pertain to the student’s focus. For instance, one illustration has been made more studious with a pair of glasses and a speech bubble reading, “I should have studied.”
