In a series of photographs for the set “All You Can Feel”, photographer Sarah Schönfeld takes a microscopic look at several recreational drugs. The artist put drops of various legal and illegal liquid drugs onto a negative film which had already been exposed. Addition of the drugs altered the coating of the film. The negatives were then developed into large size images, some as big as 160×200 centimeters.
Artist Mark Khaisman makes use of the ubiquitous packaging tape to create very impressive artwork. The translucent tape is placed on a clear backlit panel to give it the characteristic glow that adds dimension to what might otherwise not have been so clearly visible form on tape. The form is achieved by adding tape or peeling some off, in a process that the artist compares to red room photo development in the pre-digital era.
Motorcycle art by Endo Makoto is geared straight towards bike lovers. The appearance of the paintings is decidedly affected by the use of chopsticks as painting tools. Endo usually works on 6 feet by 4 feet canvas. Painting starts with drawing an outline, followed by splashing paint on the canvas that is then spread by the use of chopsticks.
We have no idea what a “Flower Engineer” is, but Andreas Verheijen makes it look like something incredibly cool. Andreas basically sculpts flower sculptures and arrangements into creative, and often stunning shapes. This flower engineer places flowers in a fashion that is most appealing to eyes.
Van Orton Design has a cool set of posters that show popular movies from the ’80s in stained glass style art.
Artist Cheong-ah Hwang (previously here and recently on Randommization Facebook page) has a skill of creating lovely three dimensional paper sculptures. The artist creates the sculptures covering a large variety of subjects, going from fairy tales to popular culture icons, or her imagination. The set here shows the artist’s sculptures of hummingbirds. Hwang starts with a sketch, and paper is then cut, sculpt and assembled to take the desired look.
Skull portraits by artist Phil Robinson combine photography and image manipulation. But best of all, they combine skulls and sneakers, and do that quite handsomely. The prints are priced at $49.
It’s a war between brown and white mice, and technically speaking, none of them have survived. They would however, be in eternal war as pieces of a chess set. The taxidermy chess set is the work of Rachael Garcia, featuring white and brown mice as the opposing sides. The mice were sourced from a captive breeding facility that sells frozen rodents for snake feeding.
Project 12 shoes for 12 lovers by artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz has a very interesting tone to speak of. For the project, the artist crafted 12 different shoes, based on his relationship with 12 previous lovers. The shape and sculpture of each shoe has something to do with the characteristic of the relationship. To explain the structure and shape of the shoe, the artist has added the story of each of the relations.
We know Pokemon as cute and cuddly animal-like characters. However, animal-like that they are, they would probably look drastically different in real world adaptations. Japanese artist Yuuki Morita has a few illustrations of Pokemon, created not as cute beings, but terrifyingly realistic monsters who would probably take pleasure in biting Ash Ketchum’s head off rather than play cuddly with him.
