Cédric Le Borgne uses chicken wire to create human-like illuminated figurine sculptures in an ethereal fashion. Suspended in mid-air in flying or floating poses in public places, Borgne makes the world his own. See more of his work HERE.
With a single paint stroke, an artist manages to paint a snake. Watching this being done and a snake appearing right before my eyes was really cool. I kept thinking that this was an illusion of some sorts, or that the artist was going to run out of ink halfway through. But the end result was a snake in a shape of “2013”. The Year of the Snake!
Japanese artist Macaon takes the ubiquitous discarded aluminum can and turns it into art. It’s really crafty how he uses the actual labels of the cans as the color for each corresponding character he creates. Definitely check out his website for much more canned creations. This guy must drink alot. Who woulda thought that the empty beer can had other uses other than smashing into your drunken forehead? 😉
Italian photographer, Alberto Seveso (previously covered HERE and HERE) adds a new twist to his series of underwater ink photographs by using metallic inks with incredible results. The vivid clarity of each picture is amazing and the undulating ink flows mesmerizing. Love his work.
Federico Pietrella creates incredibly detailed images using rubber dates stamps of varying density. So very cool. Each time he works, he uses the current date, so from each painting you can see what days he worked on it.
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Andy Warhol’s iconic “32 Campbell’s Soup Cans”, Target is featuring limited edition Warhol-inspired Campbell’s Soup cans. Sold exclusively at Target and produced with the approval of (and a license from) The Andy Warhol Foundation, they will cost 75 cents each and will be available in stores starting Sunday, September 2nd. I wonder how many will actually be consumed and how many will end up on display next to your Warhol reproduction print? 😉
Jody Xiong of DDB China and the China Environmental Protection Foundation footed (pun intended) a campaign that creatively and artistically sends a message on the environmental benefits of walking versus driving. Large white canvases with the image of a bare tree were layed out on 132 crosswalks in 15 cities across China with some fresh green paint at the edges of each side. As each pedestrian crossed the street, they picked up a bit of green paint on the soles of their shoes and transferred their footprint onto the canvas. Like leaves on a tree. In the end, the total number of pedestrians that participated exceeded 3,920,000 people. After the campaign, the print was exhibited at the Shanghai Zheng Da Art Museum. Wonderful idea!
Blu recently painted this mural for the DesordesCreativas festival in Ordes, Spain. Awesome! Though I haven’t decided if its a commentary for or against vegetarianism. I’ll contemplate this while I go slaughter some apples.
Professional domino builder, Flippycat recreated Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” from just over 7,000 dominos. And from the process video, it was not without it’s screw ups as well. However after many many hours of trial and error, the results is much like seeing a ‘live action’ version of Van Gogh’s classic masterpiece.
New York artist Kumi Yamashita creates incredible portraits consisting of a single length of thread wound around nails in wood in a vastly varying in density, web-like pattern. This ongoing series is titled ‘Constellation‘, and I cannot even begin to image the planning and creative vision that goes into the creation of these pieces. Well done.
