This interesting set of images by Cristian Girotto and Olivier Masson takes Yoga poses and transposes them onto sushi platters. Sushi Yoga, anyone?
It is tough to believe this is a pencil drawing, not a photo. However, those doubts can be let to rest after seeing that the artist has also uploaded a video of the process. The drawing is the work of artist U.N.I.C.O or Freddy Valverde, who has quite a selection of these hyper-realistic drawings in his portfolio.
Artist Gaku carves exquisite patterns on a variety of fruits and vegetables. Food carving is called mukimono in Japan, and apparently, carved food is often served as a side dish. The artist has to be rather quick with his hands as oxidation sets in the moment the fruit is cut, and discolored edibles don’t look this picturesque.
For his series Flatland II, Turkish artist Aydin Büyüktaş has created dizzying and distorted views of American landscapes. It took the photographer two months to scout and plan for the locations, then another month and 10,000 miles of travelling across the USA to capture the shots. Aydin captured 18-20 images for each shot, then stitched them together to create collages that stretch into the sky and fold onto themselves.
These vibrant and colorful cups are the work of artist Katie Marks who (rightly) describes her work as functional sculptures. You can purchase the cups from her Etsy shop SilverLiningCeramics, though they are sold out rather quickly. Katie announces upcoming pieces on her Instagram account, so keep an eye out if you’d like to purchase one.
The video shows Turkish artist Garip Ay paint Van Gogh’s Starry Night on water. After he’s done with the painting, Ay remixes it to create a portrait of Van Gogh himself. Seeing water be used as a canvas is pretty interesting. The technique is known as Paper Marbling and is a result of color floated on either plain water or a viscous solution.
Netherlands-based artist Jeroen van Kesteren has created this wonderful set of airships, for a series titled Orphanage for Lost Adventures. They are made primarily from cardboard, although aluminum, paper, foil, and adhesives find use too. The flying ships have been created over the last year, and each can take almost a month to complete.
