The result was one of his signature abstract works that includes a lot of geometrical elements, straight and perfect circular lines, as well as plays with shading, color transparency, […]

One of our contributing photographers in the past, Birdman, recently arranged for some artists to paint in an abandoned water park located somewhere in the Mojave Desert between California and Las Vegas.

More photos from the can be seen in Issue 24 of Very Nearly Almost Magazine with some […]
