Sushi Warships!

Sushi Warships!

Artist Mayuka Nakamura saw Sushi, and imagined a whole different breed of dressing for the dish. For her graduate work at the Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music, she presented Sushi as warships, representing the Japanese Imperial navy ship Kongo, Imperial aircraft carrier Hosho, and Imperial destroyer Yurikaze.

Giant Murals Painted on Buildings

Street artist Aryz likes to go big on his projects. And when we say big, we mean humongous and gigantic. The artist paints entire sides of buildings with massive murals, covering up almost the entirety of the facade. Subjects of murals vary, but the style stays quite the same, and can be seen from miles away. That is art you cannot ignore.

Cityscapes Made From Carved Potatoes

Istanbul based artist Peter Root spent about three weeks carving 176 pounds of the root vegetable to come up with a fairly well detailed city. It gets way more impressive when you realize that he attacked the heap of potatoes armed with only a kitchen knife and a bicycle repair kit. The detailed model of the city has windows on buildings, places of worship and even takes care of minute details like TV Aerials.

Subjects in the photograph are first captured through an X-ray machine or scanners used for medical scans. Once the scan is completed, Lucchesi digitally adds color and a bit of formatting to give them this intriguing appearance.
