Kevin Cyr was born in 1976 in Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada. He grew up in Madawaska, Maine and received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Cyr is currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He commemorates commercial vehicles inundated with graffiti and rust, working vehicles, and well-traveled recreational vehicles.
At a fist glance I thought these were just illustrations created with Adobe Illustrator, but boy was I wrong. The most mind-blowing part about Kevin’s drawings, is that they’re all oil paintings. His attention to detail fooled me and made me appreciate his beautiful work even more.
Kevin has been featured in numerous publications such as Juxtapoz, The New York Times, Classic Driver, Walls & Frames, Dandyhorse Magazine, and much more. Currently he is on the move showcasing his work at art exhibitions. The latest one is called; In Praise of Rust. It is running May 19—June 16, 2012 at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. So if you are in NYC be sure to check it out!
“In a culture in which people are easily lured by the appeal of status-enhancing symbols, I find beauty in derelict cars and unkempt landscapes. I have always been interested in painting vehicles and scenes that have defined the evolution of the American landscape.” – Kevin Cyr

An infinity edge pool also goes by the name of negative edge, zero edge, infinity pool, disappearing edge, or vanishing edge pool. Infinity pools are simply swimming pools which give the illusion that they go on into the horizon, as if they go on forever. In reality, the water flows over one or more edges creating this ‘vanishing’ effect. The infinity pool design concept is said to have originated in France, where one of the first vanishing edge designs was utilized in the “Stag Fountain” at the Palace of Versailles in the early 1600s.
Relaxing in this utter luxury is not cheap. Infinity pools are very expensive and require extensive structural, mechanical (hydraulic engineering) and architectural detailing. You will mostly run into these types of marvels at exotic resorts, exclusive estates, in advertisements and in other luxurious places. Lusting at these stunning images creates a desire for one. Below we have listed thirty jaw dropping infinity pools for your inspiration. Enjoy!

Estudio Minga is a creative studio based in Argentina. They started a project called WTF and with gaining popularity they had to come up with WTF2 as well. What makes this achievement even better, is that it was started just for fun. These posters are very minimal, and yet cleverly executed with funny imaginations. You can also buy these posters from their online shop for $19 each.
WTF is an expression that somehow manages to be one of the most trending topic on Twitter and in our lives as well. Most people use a question mark afterwards to get the point through. Rather than using the same term for the other ‘w’s, who, when, where, and why, it makes more sense to actually state the word and follow it with ‘tf.’ We hope you will enjoy the following illustrations and spread the word!
