Goddamnit Darth Vader! Art or no art, what are you doing in pink? Proving that art really has no boundaries, Pop Artists “decorated” Darth Vader in all sort of weird colors as part of “The Vader Project” exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum. The Evil Galactic Empire isn’t going to be amused.
Lot of games nowadays are full of gore, but back in the days of 8-bit games, the graphics wouldn’t allow the display of blood. A flickr user going by the name of tastypaints.com has created the bloodshed that would have been visible, if those games had better graphics. Clearly, the devil resides in the details.
Adidas Original’s “Liquid Story” sculpture by Felice Limosani was displayed at the Milan Design Week. Two futuristic cones are positioned one over the other, and filled with 300kg of electromagnetic lifting magnets and 10 liters of resin. When the magnets interact, the sculpture takes the spiky shape of the magnetic field.
AJ Fosik questions the minds of people and forces them to think deeper through his handmade wooden animal sculptures using obscure symbols. Which create interest but at the same time forces the viewer to expand ones thoughts.
We’ve all heard of wax statues and all sorts of art work, but this comes as surprisingly good 3-D Photo Sculptures. These sculptures are made from photographs by a contemporary Korean artist, Gwon Osang. They look a lot like figures from some game. Truly incredible and unique.
Alistair Gibson spent a lot of years working on race cars, now that he’s retired, he is busy creating “art.” He has created motorsport inspired fish sculptures, many of them created using parts from race-winning cars. The sculptures made of F1 chassis parts and carbon fiber have an interesting air about them, and probably cost an arm and a leg.
US map now comes as a licence plate or rather plates. Artist Aaron Foster has made a creative map using licence plates. Each state is represented by an authentic plate, which of course is from that state itself. The map is mounted over a wooden board with Hawaii and Alaska on the sides. This piece of art though, doesn’t come cheap; it costs a whopping $3900.
Money is good for almost everything, and combined with lasers it makes some cool art. Tattoo artist Scott Campbell has tried a hand on laser etched currency notes and it looks cool. BTW what currency note doesn’t look cool? ;)
