Did you know you can make mesmerizing art using soap, oil, and paint? I didn’t, but I’m glad I know now! I would have never imagined anyone making art with 3 items. This mesmerizing art looks different every time they make it and I love it. It almost feels alien, very abstract, and full of emotion. You have to check it out!
We love making art out of all sorts of stuff & this is something super cool that I haven’t seen before…
This dizzying video and accompanying images use oil, soap and paint.
It creates movements that feel otherworldly, psychedelically bursting from their surroundings.
Painting With Soap, Oil, Paint
Shot in extremely high resolution and at close range, the vibrant colors glide across the screen in director Thomas Blanchard’s “Galaxy Gates” creation.
What’s even more stunning is the fact that the final work only used around two percent of the footage Thomas and his photographer partner, Oilhack, were able to capture over the space of four months.
When working on the project, the duo mixed the chemicals in different variations.
When a vibrant reaction was then triggered, they would start the camera rolling.
There was a lot of trial and error in such a process, Thomas, 31, said, as there are infinite possibilities for how much oil, paint and soap to mix.
Take a look!
