Not only did I think Lucy Liu was bad-ass for her role in “Elementary” as a female Dr. Watson, but now I’m damn well in love with her. It turns out Liu is also an abstract painter! She’s been painting for years and exhibiting under the pseudonym Yu Ling, so as not to draw more attention to herself. But she recently held an exhibit in London under her own name and has published a book filled with her artwork. Her paintings are beautiful and it’s refreshing to see a celebrity who is humble enough to let their work speak, not their famous name. [ONTD]

Don’t “get” modern art? Apparently none of us do, because while we were off contemplating Jackson Pollack’s splatter paintings in the Museum of Modern Art, the Central Intelligence Agency was using Pollack and his pals as “weapons” during the Cold War. A new report reveals that the CIA promoted American Abstract Expressionist painting around the world in order to show that American art was more creative than art produced under Communist Russian rule.

These Dopplestränger Pictures Are Mesmerizing

In a new project called “I’m Not A Look-Alike!”, Canadian photographer François Brunelle brought together unrelated strangers who could be twins. He invited these pairs of dopplesträngers (I’m coining that term by the way) to his studio and photographed them together. These pictures are kind of blowing my mind.
