Juan Carlos Manjarrez is a hyperrealistic artist currently based out of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico who creates amazing figurative oil paintings. Manjarrez’s work is pretty astonishing to say the least, and I can’t image what it’s like to view his work in person.

Protagonist of this year’s edition of the Bellelay Abbey annual art exhibition, Swiss artist Renate Buser presents Barock – a monumental photographic installation that celebrates and highlights the baroque architecture of the abbey.
Marking the tercentenary of the Swiss Foundation of the Bellelay Abbey, this year the exhibition invited Basel-based artist Renate Buser to display her work in the beautiful baroque setting of the abbey.
In her characteristic style blending photography, art and architecture, she took certain architectural details from the surrounding architecture and blew them up in size, sometimes reversing them as well. This realistic imagery is then presented set in between the columns and the arches throughout the rooms, making for a new and slightly off-setting space where perspective and proportions trick the eye of the visitor for an absorbing cinematic experience.
"Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons."
