Painting the Lanjak Dawn

tags: , , , , , , , ,

This is yet another fascinating stop-motion video of the creation of artist Carel Brest van Kempen’s painting, Lanjak Dawn. This is his first major painting to receive the time-lapse treatment. In this piece, a male Crowned Flying Lizard displays to a prospective mate in a Bornean forest while a big male Orang-utan calls from his sleeping nest. Featuring music; I Formed the World with my Tongue, I Cleared the Bar with my Diaphragm and Haloumi, by the most delicious band to have sprung from Salt Lake City, Thirsty Alley.


Carel Brest van Kempen published a stunning book, Rigor Vitae: Life Unyielding [my review] and writes the art blog that goes by the same name, that might be of interest to you.
