Hungarian photographer Flora Borsi created this set as an imagination of what people in classic paintings would look like, if those paintings were photorealistic. The world would be a funny place, and the human race a weird one if people like these actually did exist, or maybe they would be the X-Men.
Watching these TVs, don’t expect the scene to change, ever. The view in these old Television sets are intricate sculptures crafted by Chinese artist Zhang Xiangxi. Quite a few times, there is a Television inside the television sculpture, which makes us want to think that the little television in turn should also host a sculpture in its innards. Okay, I’m a few years late for the Inception joke, and it isn’t really that good. Checkout the sculptures though, they are lovely and the detail is astonishing.
Artist Tom Eckert carves and colors sculptures out of wood with such perfection that they might easily pass off as “real” objects rather than sculptures of said objects. Tom prefers the use of basswood, linden and limewood to carve out these stunningly realistic sculptures that are then given a coat of waterborne lacquer using both spray gun and brushes. Hit ahead to see more images and be amazed.
Things we know all too well change drastically if we change the style they are illustrated in. We have seen Pokemon go through the lens of numerous artists, and this time it is a double filter with artist Vaughn Pinpin drawing Pokemon like they would appear in the style of Tim Burton. It is an ongoing project and Pinpin wants all 151 of the original Pokemon in the set.
In these illustrations, artist Andry Shango presents various superheroes in a parenting role. These are… pretty, and the one good side of superheroes we don’t get to see.
Photographer Nick Veasey (previously) captures common objects through the wonders of X-ray technology. Everything turns transparent to eagerly reveal its secrets for the photographer, and we get to see everyday objects as a sight not usually seen.
Artist Sonia Rentsch makes weapons harmless by crafting them out of plants. The set “Harm Less” shows some very deadly weapons recreated with plants, effectively making the guns, the grenades and the bullets harmless. It’s all fun and games until you get hit by a cactus or poison ivy grenade.
Apparently a fan of Nike Air Max, designer Joost Goudriaan created the shoes out of delicious, delicious chocolate. Details on the chocolate sneakers are impressive; you can even see the thread and sewing that would go with the shoes. Goudriaan has made two variants of the shoes, one from milk chocolate and the other from white chocolate with a pure chocolate sole. Perhaps it is the color, but the details are much better visible in the brown chocolate shoe. The sculptures are a series of ten unique variations, each at Air Max size 10.
German sculptor Martin Bässler carved this Merman figure from a sperm whale tooth. That’s quite a suitable choice for materials.
Illustrations by British artist Jonathan Wolstenholme has a love for old books, and it shows in this series entitled Books on Books. The illustrations show a world where books read books, play cards and chess, and have a social life of their own. A book reading a book while writing a book is quite an interesting force at play.
