What is under a painting?

Have you ever wondered what was under a painting?  Have you ever thought that there might be something under it?  Most of us don't even stop to think about what even could be under a painting.

Well the artist Blake Neubert has taken the concept of what is under the painting to a whole new level.  I am going to warn you right now, he has a morbid and even creepy side to his artwork, but at the same time it is really kind of cool how he does this.

Enjoy!

So this is the painting before he scrapes away the paint.


And this is the after.

Okay, my first question has to be, how do you think he does this?  Does he have something between the layers of paint so that it scrapes off easily?  What would make someone even think of doing art that looks like this?  Do you find this gross or fascinating?  What image would you do if you could do this style?  Would you also do a person or animal or would you do something like looking into the inside of a car?

  1. It's crazy that someone would create something like this. I wonder how long it took the person to create the face alone, and to carefully scrap of the paint to make it look like that. I would love to try this, but yet i wouldn't want to.

  2. This is pretty cool art. I would like to learn how to make something similar to this. This also seems hard to make. I feel like this would take a lot of time to make. So I don't know if I would actually try to make this.

  3. This is crazy how he made this. It is really cool how he took the paint off to make it look like he ripped off the skin off his face. It looks like it is really hard to do and I would not want to do it as a project.

  4. I think this is really cool. It is scary though. I like the idea of it. I've seen these before and I though they were crazy. It would be hard to do, but worth the effort.

  5. This is so cool. I have seen these paintings before and I have no idea how he does them. I wouldn't necessarily do it as a project though.

  6. I don't think this is as cool as some of the other things. Yes being able to wipe away and see something different is kinda cool but its at the same time not.

  7. What an odd piece of artwork. I'm guessing that he uses layers of some type of very thin paper in order to achieve this. I think he just wanted to do something original. And he did indeed.

  9. I've never thought of what was under a painting. its unheard of. its never been done before. If I could do one of these I would paint a clock then I scrape of the the paint to reveal a bunch of gears.

  10. This is amazing, and i love the thought put into it. I would definitely do a side of an animal and see all the inside parts. It's very fascinating how he does this, most take a lot of time and effort.

  14. I think Samara over reacted and it is pretty cool. You could come up with some pretty crazy and cool ideas with this.

  15. I've seen piece of art like this before and I think that they're really cool. It just gives us an idea of what's really underneath may not be the same and what's outside.

  16. This is SO COOL! Of the 5 or so Blog posts I've done tonight, this one may be my favorite. The biggest downside to this style I can see is you would have to repaint every time you wanted to present it.
    He probably figured out how to do it on accident.

  17. This is really cool. I like that it shows what is underneath and not just the stuff we see everyday on the outside. I think it would be a challenge to figure out how to make it layered.

  18. I saw this on Instagram, it was cool. I had to watch it over a couple times, i like how the artists spends so much time on the underneath layer and the top layer, then scrapes a little piece of and it makes a whole new painting.

  19. This would take some talent, painting the person from two different perspectives, this is some seriously awesome artwork.

  20. this is groos. this is disgusting. i dont feel like expressing too much about this.

  21. Cool idea but i'm not sure about doing humans. That is kinda disgusting seeing all the muscle and flesh underneath. I think this would be a cool thing for surrealism. Make a door and scrape it off revealing a different world is what I might've used it for

  22. Wow, okay that's a little creepy. I mean it's cool, but also gross at the same time. Plus this is kinda gross and I'd never do something like this.

  23. this is really weird and creepy. I don't like this one at all, from how creepy it is to the concept even. it is totally pointless to paint over a painting. why wouldn't you just keep it simple.

    ReplyDelete
  24. i for some reason like this piece of work
    it weird but i like it

  25. I think the artist is a true genius. Painting layers then scraping them off to reveal another painting is brilliant. This would also be cool if done with animals as well

  26. I think this is creepy. I don't necessarily like this piece but i believe that it took a lot of patience
