Drogon made with Gun Powder This is part 1 of a two part set piece i will make – this one obviously represents Fire ( of Song of ice and fire ) It might take me a long time until i can do the second one since my schedule is currently overbooked with projects for the rest of 2017 =) But i had a lot of fun experimenting the last two weeks with all kinds of new and interesting things i have learned and discovered =D The next large project i got planned is the worlds larges gun powder mandala that i will make in my home town in Notodden ( where i will set fire to it in front of the whole city ) =D
A Norwegian tattoo artist works with rather unusual mediums – gunpowder and fire – to create one-of-a-kind works of art.
According to his Instagram page, Dino Tomic is all booked up – or rather overbooked – with custom orders through the rest of the year, but ready-made prints can be purchased from his Etsy shop. Prices vary from around $10 to more than $600.
Despite his busy schedule, Dino Tomic is still working on what he refers to as a “large project.” And by large, he literally means the world’s largest mandala art made from gunpowder, which he plans to set afire in front of the entire city of Notodden, Norway, the artist’s home town.
Moon Glowing sand + Gun Powder art ( special ending watch with sound ) My first attempt on combining Glowing sand + Gun Powder + markers into one image .=) By this point what im doing is very much performance art – the finished image is just a product of the video process witch really is the main art part =) It feels good to not be locked into repetitive art where i over and over again do the same things and it feels refreshing expanding into new fields . The definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. This particular video/ image is made to celebrate the achievement of the human race . People take the moon landing like its a normal thing now – but honestly its just mind blowing to think about it! =D Hoping to be around when even greater things happen that will redefined who we are as a race. =)
Cheshire cat Glowing Sand/ Gun Powder art My second attempt on trying to merge/ blend these two mediums together . I grew up with this silly cat ( original story from the children books ) and i still remember how freaky it was when the cat got invisible and only the eyes and mouth where visible =) I tried to get that same feeling with this piece =) For the next project il do something new and different again , i already have a fun idea – still not sure if it will work but il never know if i dont test it out =D
Truck made with gun powder Newest piece done with gun powder – this one was a commission work – so no fancy twist nor creative ideas – just pure replica – the reason why i took this job is that i wanted to test out how it would be to make something less organic. All the straight lines are a real pain in the butt with the gun powder that rolls all over the place =D It really makes you think and rethink how to approach a design like this. It might even seem that this piece did not take me long to do but this one was the one that took me the longest time out of them all =) The less organic the more time consuming it is =)
Batman made with black powder Back to experimentation – i tried a new type of gun powder for this one. It burned super slow ( thats why i had to speed up the video ) and it also left some black residue that got uplifted in the air while it was burning. It gave nice effect to this image / the dark effect for the batman – but it was all over the room ( the room was completely empty and the only thing in it was this canvas – so a quick round of vacuum cleaning did the job ) . The one good thing about it is that this one is super black after the burning compared to the other type of gun powder =) The powder was a lot rounder so it was way harder to hold it in one place – so i think this piece took me the longest time to make of them all =) I have just added this one to my etsy shop if someone want so buy it, the link is on top of my instagram page 🙂
Gun Powder Anakin Skywalker ( watch til the end! ) Experimenting further with gun powder – my goal is not only to get better in each medium i use but i also want the things to make sense and tell a story . In this piece i tried to tell the story of Anakin Skywalker from Starwars how he got fatal burn/ fire injuries and thus became the iconic Darth Vader . Creatively is a beauty in it self – thinking outside of the box and coming up with fun ideas brings me so much joy =D I have also added all of my gun powder artworks for sale on my etsy shop if anyone is interested ( you can find the link on top of my instagram page ) They are all original and i ship worldwide =)
