Chimpanzees have an art contest, and the images you see here are the result of the said contest. Organized by The Humane Society, the paintings were voted on by people to select the winner. The image at top is the work of Brent, a 37 year old chimpanzee who only paints with a tongue and still manages to get patterns on canvas. The next two paintings are by Cheetah who came in second, and Ripley, who won the third prize.
Berlin-based artist Sebastian Bieniek created this set of intriguing, and sometimes unsettling portraits of females. The set doesn’t exactly use the female’s face to the full extent, it is the rudimentary face paint with makeup and its juxtaposition with facial features that creates the effect.

High speed photography of Martin Klimas often involves around a bang, or a crash. In this case, it’s the bang that made these photographs of exploding flowers possible. To achieve the effect, the flowers were first dipped in liquid nitrogen, where the cool temperature promptly froze them. After that came the effect of a sound gun that shattered the frozen flower. All the action was captured by a high speed camera just before the flower completely went bust.
Like the vast majority of people to have ever existed on this planet, Kellie Strickland was stuck with the age old dilemma of how do you make kids eat food? The answer was in the form of these cute foodscapes that are fairly simple, yet look fun enough to encourage children to eat their meals.
Paris based artists Nøne Futbol Club creates sculptures and installations that are both eccentric, and humorous. The art is sometimes just for fun and humor and sometimes with a political message, but always with humor.
Fallen From the Sky is an installation by artist Jean-Francois Fourtou (previously) that shows off a full sized upside down house. Built in the region of Dar El Sadaka, Morocco in 2010, the house enjoys playing with sense and perception. The upside down part can be something that takes time getting used to, and is accompanied by other quirks like an entrance that is a window, and full detail with furniture, lights and accessories that can very well convince your mind that you are standing upside down.
Behold, and admire these superb superhero illustrations by Kaz Omori. While not technically a superhero, Darth Vader makes an appearance in this set, mostly because he looks total badass, and we don’t want to be the ones telling Lord Vader that he’s not invited to the party.
