Artist Tomo Tanaka is a miniature artist who has been crafting replicas of items since 2002. The sculptures are so tiny and detailed, they demand awe and admiration. The artist has also published books that showcase his work.
Coffee cup stains are those sucky problems that you allow to exist, because you love coffee, and the stains are just the side effects. Artist Carter Asmann probably does not see those stains as aberrations, but rather an opportunity that goes well with his stunningly detailed motorcycle illustrations.
Japanese designer Akihiro Mizuuchi has created this very, very desirable combination of LEGO and white, dark, and milk chocolate. Just imagine the possibilities!
Continuing with his very classy and creative work, artist Cory Barkman has come up with this very beautiful Intergalactic Coffee Table. The table takes on the appearance of a very retro-looking spaceship, and absolutely scores a win in the appearance department. The video here is especially interesting, and we could as easily believe it to be part of a sci-fi show trailer.
The art of Pawel Kuczynski takes a look at issues that are important to modern society, often in a satirical way. Here is the artist’s take on Facebook.
Inventions by British artist Dominic Wilcox are entirely functional, but perhaps not quite useful. While the artist ensures that all these work perfectly, the inventions are rarely made to be “useful,” rather they are just examples of what could be.
There is paper cut art, and there is mind-blowingly intricate paper cut art that we are sure is held together by magic. The intricacy and detail are both astounding, and a testament to the patience and skill of artist Maude White.
As an impulse and start, we probably would have thought the project from Japanese artist Aki Inomata was weird. A dog wearing a coat of human hair is definitely strange. But it doesn’t really seem that bad. The project is an exploration of relationship between people and their dogs.
Selfies are all pervasive and while there are plenty you can see every day, and most in front of the mirror can be quite hilarious or sad, depending on how you see them. There’s a lot of room for creativity in selfies though, as Helene Meldahl (Mirrorsme) shows. The Norway born, Washington DC based artist does drawings on her bathroom mirror and then poses with those drawings to make beautiful images.
The Bankers Lamp – Revisited is probably what all bankers lamps dream of becoming one day. A creation of Cory Barkman (previously), the lamp follows the style of the artist, that is, an old world look that is somewhat steampunk-ish, but mostly elegant, stylish, and functional.
