The terrible crime that domestic violence is, it often leaves scars on the body of the victim – and it stays on as a mark of the abuse, a reminder of terrible times. However, it’s not just scars that are permanent, as Brazilian artist Flavia Carvalho has proven with her project called “A Pele da Flor” (The Skin of the Flower).
Images and art by Italian photographer Giuseppe Colarusso are quite tantalizing, sometimes creating a surreal world, and often playing with the idea of something that’s possible, but really improbable. Starting off on the path of creativity and off the usual, Giuseppe got his first photograph by creating a pinhole camera out of a shoebox. He used a photographic paper at the bottom of the box and a hole at the center of the lid to get the camera into action.
Artist Tomo Tanaka is a miniature artist who has been crafting replicas of items since 2002. The sculptures are so tiny and detailed, they demand awe and admiration. The artist has also published books that showcase his work.
Coffee cup stains are those sucky problems that you allow to exist, because you love coffee, and the stains are just the side effects. Artist Carter Asmann probably does not see those stains as aberrations, but rather an opportunity that goes well with his stunningly detailed motorcycle illustrations.
Japanese designer Akihiro Mizuuchi has created this very, very desirable combination of LEGO and white, dark, and milk chocolate. Just imagine the possibilities!
Continuing with his very classy and creative work, artist Cory Barkman has come up with this very beautiful Intergalactic Coffee Table. The table takes on the appearance of a very retro-looking spaceship, and absolutely scores a win in the appearance department. The video here is especially interesting, and we could as easily believe it to be part of a sci-fi show trailer.
The art of Pawel Kuczynski takes a look at issues that are important to modern society, often in a satirical way. Here is the artist’s take on Facebook.
Inventions by British artist Dominic Wilcox are entirely functional, but perhaps not quite useful. While the artist ensures that all these work perfectly, the inventions are rarely made to be “useful,” rather they are just examples of what could be.
There is paper cut art, and there is mind-blowingly intricate paper cut art that we are sure is held together by magic. The intricacy and detail are both astounding, and a testament to the patience and skill of artist Maude White.
As an impulse and start, we probably would have thought the project from Japanese artist Aki Inomata was weird. A dog wearing a coat of human hair is definitely strange. But it doesn’t really seem that bad. The project is an exploration of relationship between people and their dogs.
