Farting was the shit in 1600s Japan, as these scrolls that depict a farting competition show. While the act of farting is glorified as it should be, the scrolls delve further into various positions that a person can take to completely destroy the opposition. It’s an aim, lock, and fire thing, but ingesting copious amount of beans is very likely to give you an edge. The images belong to Edo-era Japan (1603-1868).
Not so long ago, we saw an artist embroider a “sculpture” on the skin of her own hand. Well, she has company now with artist David Cata who likes to sew portraits and sculptures on his hands. The portraits represent people who have had an influence on the world, and/or on the artist.

New Orleans based artist Heather Hansen is a specialist in what she calls Kinetic Drawing. Heather makes use of her upper body to create large works of art that has a touch of dance, and charcoal on her hands to draw patterns on large sheets of paper. The skill and precision with which she manages the macro movements is plain impressive, considering she cannot have the same control over her art as an artist making strokes of paint with a brush, or drawing with a pencil.
Popular TV shows and movies take to the cover of Little Golden Tales books for kids in an art show featuring several artists on Gallery Nucleus. Several of these are as unforgettable as the books themselves, which makes it all quite the combination.
People around the world talk of the mysterious monsters and creatures that are supposed to be inhabiting lakes and water bodies.
