Watch This Amazing Oil-Painted Music Video

If you loved the stop-motion music video to Shugo Tokumaru’s Katachi (refresh your memory), chances are you’ll appreciate the immense effort that went into creating Blown Minded.

Carine Khalifé is a French visual artist and a dab hand at animation, painting, and photography. She uses those skills to create this amazing stop-motion music video for Canadian indie band, Young Galaxy.

Like sand artist Kseniya Simonova, Khalifé also uses a light box to bring her artwork to life. Working in a dark room, she paints with oils on the glass atop the light box while an overhead camera captures her paintings, frame by painstaking frame. The textures and brush movements in the resulting stop-motion music video are beautiful to behold. Check out Blown Minded below.

Still Life Weapons

Geliografic studio is design collective based in Moscow, Russia. In their “Art of Innovation” series, they created a set of colourful still life oil paintings as if they were done by the old renaissance masters and added guns, ammo, and other weapons of war into the scenes. The images are presented beautifully but it’s a little worrying that weapons are so commonplace in society these days and that I didn’t think anything was out-of the-ordinary with the massive multi-shot grenade launcher lying right next to the bunch of tasty pumpkins.

Have a look at the series of deadly art after the jump.
