The Art of Explosionism

Andrew Lausman of Lakeland, Florida has created a new genre of art. He calls it "explosionism." As far as I can tell, it involves dipping firecrackers in paint and shooting them at a canvas. A few of his works, which I found on his facebook page, are below. He focuses on space themes — galaxies and nebulae — perhaps because it would be hard to do a still life with flowers using firecrackers.

Lausman's art hasn't allowed him to quit his day job yet. (He's a dental assistant.) But he does have his first exhibition opening this Friday. []

Shouldn't someone call homeland security? This HAS to be illegal! 😛

Maybe Chuck could drive over and video-interview this dude in person! That would be a first!

I like these! They do look a lot like those Hubble pictures, very cool.
