Sometimes difficult to understand, the art is always beautiful and fascinating. It might be both inspiring and intriguing at the same time. The intensity of emotions we live while watching art pieces is always high. It’s like the time stops for a few moments and some unique experiences are happening. And that’s regardless the level of art.

”Icebearg” . Hi friends, and welcome to a new episode of Andy climat change guide. Today we’re going to tap into something really cool (pun intended), ICE! Okay, so the Arctic sea ice just hit its lowest since measurements began, so what would actually happen if (when?) ALL the glaciers melt? . Sadly, scientists have a pretty good idea of how glaciers melting would change the world because, well, they already are! . First, and most obvious; rising sea levels. All coastal cities, essentially, would get the Waterworld treatment, including London, New York, and Tokyo. . And it’s not just all about rising water: there’s a whole list of other biblical catastrophes in store for us. Melting the ice that covers Antarctica could cause massive earthquakes worldwide, for example. But wait, there’s more! All this shake-up would cause active volcanoes in Antarctica to erupt, as well. Yay! . Here’s a neat bonus treat for you, biologists thinks prehistoric viruses currently trapped in Antarctic ice would be unleashed if the ice sheet were to melt. . And our friends the polar bears would of course be totally goners. . Does all this sounds like a super duper future? Clearly, we have to do our part each and every day to make sure we are reducing our impact on global warming by decreasing our greenhouse gas emissions. Here’s two quick tips for you; switch off your lights and use less water. Now go save the world! . . . #wildlifeplanet #ps_opposites #fantasy #natgeo #earthfocus #earthpix #naturegram #wildlife #instawildlife #naturegeography #discoverwildlife #ourplanetdaily #beautifuldestinations #mothernature #wildlifephotography #love #earthcapture #outdoor #natgeoyourshot #nature #wildlifeaddicts #naturelove #keepitwild #fantastic_earth #nature_lovers #natureaddict #polarbear #wildlifeperfection #wildlifeonearth #animalelite

”Just as with melodies, visual images stick with us more than just words. Using the power that art contains, there really is an opportunity for an artist to make a movement for an important cause,”  Andreas says.

Yin yang. . It may not be obvious by a quick look, but this piece is actually inspired by Yin and Yang. Look close, and you can see a little of black in the white, and vice versa. I find this to be a pretty interesting concept. Two halves that together complete wholeness. Opposite forces that actually are complementary, and how they give rise to each other. It’s a beautiful thought, and I kind of think it relates in everything around us. . Nothing in the universe or in life is simply black or white. Each exists in the other and each needs the other in order to exist. . Lately I’ve been giving some thought to extremes and how often we look at situations from extreme points of view. It’s so easy to label something as “good” or “bad” so we do just that rather than really giving it thought and figuring out what it really is. But, as Van Morrison said, “There is no black and white situation. It’s all part of life. Highs, lows, middles.” . I think when we attempt to classify things in very general categories, we limit ourselves and the world around us. It can be very tempting to look at a situation or even another person with an all-or-nothing outlook, but it’s usually not going to bring out the true nature of that situation or person. Most things are much more complex than a single adjective or label. We miss out on seeing the true complexities of the world around us. So, my advice. Let go of your expectations and look for the grey areas! . Do you find yourself looking at the world in black and white? . . . #yinyang #balance #blackandwhite #whitetiger #blackjaguar #moodygrams #instawildlife #creativegrammer #animallovers #helpanimals #creative #ps_magic #hubs_united #portrait_shots #portraits_mf #dailyart #art_spotlight #worldofartist #art_collective #photoshop #art_daily #art_select #thevisualones #houseoftones #artwork #enter_imagination #launchdsigns #theuniversalart #savetheplanet
