Artist Elsa Mora recently updated her portfolio with a number of beautiful paper sculptures created for both private clients and exhibition. All of Mora's pieces are created with little more than acid-free paper and glue which is carefully cut, layered, and assembled to create 2D
Hot on the heels of yesterday's post about an enormous dog mural by Smates in Belgium, here's another great collection of humongous animals by UK duo Irony & Boe (aka. Whoam Irony and Placee Boe). The pair have collaborated on several large pieces in London over the l
Artist team Walter Hugo & Zoniel recently surprised the city of Toxteth, Liverpool by installing this massive psychedelic aquarium tank behind a shutter in an old, abandoned building. Every night at 10pm, the shutter is raised and passing pedestrians are greeted with a large, glowing sea of jellyfish in quite the unexpected location! The piece, entitled The Physical Possibility Of Inspiring Imagination In The Mind Of Somebody Living, was developed with the support of the Gazelli Art House in London and as part of the Liverpool Biennial. The artists did not announce the magical piece to any press but, rather, they simply revealed the project anonymously on the evening of June 26, 2014. Since that time, the duo has depended on word of mouth within the community to get the news out about the site-specific installation. As part two of the project, a live-stream video, which faces out towards the street from inside the tank, is being projected onto the windows of the Gazelli Art House in…
Though she's, in fact, an artist, you wouldn't call Rebecca Clews a painter. Her stunningly surreal images of otherworldly landscapes have a painterly feel to them but they haven't been created with even a drop of paint. Instead, the 22-year-old artist takes hundreds of microscopic images and stacks them on top of each other until she creates her beautifully surreal scenes. As she tells us, "I consider myself to be an image maker and collector, as I have been using the microscope to capture the building blocks for the imaginary worlds I generate. This not only adds to my alteration of space but, I use the microscopic world as it seems alien to most of us. "The images I collect from the microscope are merely jumping-off points, individual components, for use in a later constructed image similar to that of a painter or illustrator. Often a single work will contain hundreds of images. Although these are not paintings, these images contain some appearance of painterly brushwork and…
Drive through the American West long enough and even the most spectacular vistas get lost in a sea of repetition. Photography duo Floto+Warner’s Colourant series introduces a splash, literally, of color to these sometimes monotonic landscapes.
IKEA has launched "Beds", a television commercial focusing on how the perfect bed can help us start the day the right way. Set thousands of feet above the city, the ad tells the story of a woman's dream as she…
Just love this.
Imagination, inspiration, aspiration, and all beautifully executed.
Over the last three months photographer Thomas Herbrich snapped some 100,000 individual photographs of smoke, looking for unexpected anamalies and fortuitous coincidences where familiar shapes emerged. It's fascinating to see how the brain tries to create order out of chaos, jus
Once the water’s receded, the rebuilding’s begun and the news crews have departed, how do you photograph a massive natural disaster? Alejandro Chaskielberg grappled with these questions for his series Otsuchi Future Memories, which is about the aftermath of the 2011 tsunami in Japan. He ultimately settled on making stunning portraits of families within the…
Martin Kimbell is a photographer from England who utilizes LEDs and long exposure techniques to create airborne light forms that seem like trails of otherworldy spacecraft. My initial assumption was that Kimbell used some form of small drone with attached lights, similar to Andreas Fe
This dental-inspired lettering is inspired and disturbing in equal measure We've seen a lot of different approaches to lettering in our time. But here's something we haven't seen before – an entire alphabet made from mouths.

Some time ago we wrote about Vancouver-based artist Wendy Tsao, who turns children’s drawings into toys. Telmo Pieper, a Dutch muralist, does a very similar thing: with the help of Photoshop, he digitally recreates his old drawings into realistic versions of his childhood imagination. The Kiddie Arts series features some of the weirdest-looking animals - a shoe-shaped whale, a snail with world's smallest shell, and an alien looking fly – a great collection of typical boy-ish drawings.
