The Mona Lisa, painted by Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci in the early 1500s, is one of the world’s most famous paintings. More than 9.3 million people visited its home at the Louvre in Paris, France in 2013 to catch a 15-second glimpse of it.Behind that enigmatic expression, however, there are secrets, dear reader. Secrets unlike those that art historians or best-selling novelists could have ever imagined. Because if you look at the Mona Lisa from just the right angle…THE SHOCKING TRUTH IS REVEALED.

Alexander Tsiaras work explores the unseen human body
Alexander Tsiaras born 1953 in: Nashua, NH, Founder, Editor-in-Chief and CEO of TheVisualMD, has been called a “Digital Age Leonardo da Vinci”. He is a technology innovator, whose roots are based in his art and science photojournalism background.
Tsiaras has developed cutting edge scientific imaging software that enables him to scan and record the human body at every stage; from a single cell at the moment of conception, through the biological development of man and woman and he tells compelling stories of wellness and prevention with them.
“My goal is to visualize life in all its glory. And to see how daily lifestyle decisions affect the choreography of all of our cellular activity, causing disturbances stored in trillions of X, Y, Z coordinates.”

A graduate of The Rhode Island School of Design, Eric White has built up a huge following around the world with exhibitions at the most prestigious galleries and support in group exhibitions at leading art museums, such as the American Visionary Museum, Long Beach Museum of Art, Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico and the Museo d’Arte Contemporanio Roma.
White has flawless technique, mostly working from photographs but introduces surreal elements. Often he blurs time and perception with characters from different timelines in the mix.
His work has been described as Surrealism, Neo-Realism and Conceptualism but White keeps his council to himself whilst the LA Weekly described his work as “wooziness enhanced with bilious colours, weird superimpositions, and a tendency to render everything a little wobbly and elongated - El Greco goes suburban.” via
