Putting his love for photography and travel together, New York-based photographer Richard Silver not just visits various spots around the world, he brings back delicious visual goodies of his travels. The photographer makes use of several techniques to capture images, though for the moment our primary interest would be dictated by his project Tilt Shift.
New York city and London are both huge cities and centers for culture with an influence that spreads not just to their respective regions, but can be very global in approach. This series of photographs explores how similar both the cities would be in appearance, the age-old yet modern London, and the comparatively new city of New York. Photographer Daniella Zalcman recently moved from New York to London, and this move prompted the series we see here.
Grumpy Cat very likely is amongst the biggest celebrities of our time, or maybe even better because we can’t think of many celebrity names who have art projects dedicated for them. Grumpy Cat Art Project features more than 30 artists and is currently on exhibit at Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment complex in Huntsville, Alabama. The medium used by the artists, or even the variety of situations Grumpy Cat appears in is quite varied. What doesn’t change however, is the influence of the star feline.
Vintage themed lamps and objects that artist Cory Barkman (previously) creates, come from a very elaborate process. The stunning design and the beautiful appearance are of course, a big part of the job, but the story of materials used in making these lamps is impressive in itself. Most of the objects used in the construction of these lamps are reclaimed mechanical parts from a scrap yard. Once the idea takes its shape, Cory looks for parts suitable for his lamps or forges a part if it cannot be found.
Nothing says, or rather, screams artistic talent like a giant non-steaming pile of shit that can be blown to huge proportions. American sculptor Paul McCarthy came up with this sculpture titled “Complex Pile” for an exhibit at the West Kowloon Cultural District Park, Hong Kong. If aliens were looking at earth right now, they’d be like “Whoa! What size of species craps like that?” and they might totally think of us as giants, which may or may not be a good thing.
Zev is a fourteen year old with an imagination and photography skills that are quite impressive. In the surreal photographs, Zev plays with perspective to often shrink himself to the size of little objects as he journeys though what looks like a magical landscape.
Cinemagraphs by Gustavo Manas and X-Presion keep the focus on hair. Though hair is not necessarily the “animated” object in these images, the hairstyles do take attention and occupy the major spot in these cinemagraphs.
We’re back to another installment of art in the style of Shitty_Watercolour. This time around, we look at paintings of various characters in the roles of sloths. Why? Because that makes everything better. Also, sloths are cool.
Artist Sun K. Kwak makes colorful and vibrant patterns on walls, where the color and style of the paint is mostly dependent on tape. She mostly uses black masking tape to draw patterns on the walls that can be intricate and shapely. Images here (except the last) are from an installation in the Brooklyn Museum. Titled Enfolding 280 hours, the number suggests the time it took to complete the installation.
Alex Law runs a Tumblr blog called Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, where the artist and student creates superheroes based on costumes worn by little girls. Alex says the children are not as restricted as adults by cultural and gender norms, which allows him to create superheroes with the same freedom of thought as the wearer of these costumes.
