The production of the animated short began in 1945, but was only completed 58 years later. The animators at Disney were able to meld their hallmark animation style with the surrealistic imagery of Dali to create this flawless masterpiece. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Animated Short Film in 2003.

“One & Other” is a very interesting art project conceived by British sculptor Antony Gormley.
A preselected participant has to stand on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square in London, (and do whatever the heck she or he wants to do) for an hour. At the end of the hour, a different participant will occupy the same space. This will go on 24 hours a day, for 100 days, without any sort of a break in between.
If you are 16 or over, and are in the UK right now, you can apply here for a spot.

André Azevedo, a 21 year old Brazilian artist, sent in pictures of his wonderfully abstract paintings and sketches to JazJaz.
The works of Italian photography firm Winkler+Noah have been featured before on Jaz Jaz.‘The Puppet Show’, a new artistic project by the firm, is currently being exhibited from 5th to 10th May in Milan.
Portraits of 30 young children have been subtly retouched to transform them into puppet dolls. The project is a statement on the loss of innocence and spontaneity in children, brought about by the unrealistic standards of perfection demanded and expected by today’s society.
An exhibit which becomes a starting point for reflection, sociological research and introspection,to better understand ourselves and the world around us. And to understand that the best present we can give to children is to let them be children.
The show has already received many accolades already, and some of the photos have been included in the book “200 Best Photographers Worldwide” by Luerzers Archive.
You can see the rest of the pictures in the gallery here.

Paramount Pictures commissioned this time lapse video to promote the West End movie premiere of the ‘Watchmen’ movie in the UK .
‘End of the Line’, the graffiti artists collective seen in the video, painted for over an hour in front of a live audience before the screening of the film.
Though it may be sad to see the artists repeatedly paint over their previous works in the video, the true nature of the graffiti art form is one of impermanence.
Watch the video after the jump.
