Mexican artist Kimbal reimagines Batman as a Mayan bat god

For the 75th anniversary of Batman, thirty artists from around the world were given a plain white bust of Batman to create some magic on. Perhaps the most magical was Kimbal's Mayan folk style Batman, which reimagined him as the Mayan bat god, Camazotz, who is usually associated with death, night, and sacrifice. According to the Popol Vuh, a sacred book of the Mayan people, Camazotz fell upon mythological heroes Hunahpu and Xbalanque while they were stuck together in the underworld Xibalba. A confrontation between the two and the bat god resulted in Camazotz beheading Hunahpu and flying off with his head for later use as a ball in the gods' next ballgame. (Not exactly sure if that's what Batman would do. But I digress.) In Photo 3, you will see many examples of Camazotz's representation in the Mayans' visual history. It's interesting to see how he was able to incorporate the 'spiral hook' pattern found in a majority of Mayan works, especially ones involving deities. Last but not least, check out Batman's bat fangs. (Perfect to carry your head off with when the rest of the gods are itching for a round of dodgeball, I'm sure.)

Types Of Painting
Painting might seem an easy task to do with its definition being so simple, but there's poetry in every stroke of color and a story behind each picture that an artist or painter wants to portray. Painting has been a method of displaying art for a long period and there have been different techniques to do so. There are a variety of painting procedures and each of them is beautiful and unique on its own. A beginner needs great dedication and patience to pursue the journey of being an artist and to learn any painting technique completely. We have previously covered some of the painting techniques in our first blog about the same. Here we present other styles of painting that are currently popular that one can try and get along with. Watercolor Painting Watercolor painting is as common as oil and acrylic painting. This is a well-known technique in which the colors are mixed with water to create the art. The paper sheets are used to create watercolor art most of the time. Watercolors, on the other hand, can be used to create art on bark paper, soap sheets, wooden blocks, and papyrus. Even finger paintings with watercolors are done in many parts of the world, such as China. Pencil Sketches I am one of those people who are fond of watching pencil sketches. The depth and details can just blow away your mind. It takes effort to understand the tones and grades for each piece and part of the art. These are made from graphite materials. Pencils are most often used because of their simplicity and versatility. Graphite can be smudged like kohl and thus can enhance the beauty of anything depicted on paper; it simply brings your thoughts to life. Glass Paintings Ever visited monuments and wondered about the beauty of glass paintings? The Greek and Roman cultures have portrayed some delightful art through glass paintings. The multicolor display of images and thoughts is amazing and gets even more personified when the light passes through the medium. It simply illuminates the locations. You can find them at old monuments and churches as well. They are inspired by the concept of stained glass painting. Collage Painting It is a very beautiful form of art. It is formed by assembling various creative pieces to form a visual effect of an image. A collage can be made from a variety of materials, including paper scraps, ribbons, magazines, newspapers, paint colors, and so on. is the accumulation of different pieces of art brought together to represent a single entity. It can have various themes and requires less budget yet comes out as an astonishing piece of art. Spray Painting. These are made out of aerosol painting sprays and are specially used on walls. They are magnificent; the colored area is kept open, while the other area is closed to keep the color from spreading all around them. These are the other painting techniques that exist and are trending today. Visit sites like Shopify to buy your painting essentials.
Korean Girls Try Mexican Soda For The First Time!
Just when that whole YouTube trend of sampling foods from different cultures was losing its sparkle to me, Digitalsoju TV had to go ahead and introduce Korean girls to Jarritos. I've been wanting to write a card about Jarritos for a while now, as it's one of those Mexican sodas that are an essential part of the culture of Mexican cuisine. Sure, you can talk about Baja California seafood or the delicious carnes of central Mexico's ranching region, but what would that deliciousness be without a cold, fizzy Jarritos on the side? If you don't know Jarritos, it's an incredibly popular Mexican soda brand that's made with cane sugar and comes in a variety of flavors, including strawberry, guava, pineapple, and tamarind. In this video, the girls end up sampling the pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and guava flavors, but how does Jarritos translate in the Land of the Morning Calm? Let's look! Like any good soda, the first thing they notice is it's full of sugar. And then they all realize they're obsessed with the guava one. My favorite was the homegirl going too hard on the grapefruit. This one had her ranking all figured out. Does it match yours? Overall, these girls all agreed that Jarritos was delicious - and would be even more delicious mixed with a little vodka! You can check out their FULL commentary - plus their opinion on Squirt! - in the embedded video above. And then let me know: What's YOUR favorite Mexican soda flavor? And if you haven't tried Jarritos before, which flavor would YOU want to try? @bangtanboysfan1 @AnnahiZaragoza @fabiola12fb @abiersack666 @YeseniaLira @DianaKpop58 @reyestiny93 @AdaliaMartinez @exokpop12385 @michellefuentes @perlaaraujo73 @jessicacruz1480 @DulceOjeda @giselacampos14 @wuyifanslover @nevershoutnancy @mirandazamira @jooheony @YeseniaF @SunnyV @IlseJimenez @KpopGaby @NelyJoss @aabxo @aliciasalinas @ThyaremyCreator @Cuetlatchli @Sunflower18 @purplem00n23 @jannatd93 @Luci546 @ALEXCAMACHO @TehDL @buddyesd @JocelynPacheco @SarahRegulski @MyAffairWith @FelipeZambrano @LindaGuandique @KassyGuz96 @XDLP @alywoah @FelipeZambrano
