This is the best caramel candy ever.
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. This brings to mind a cliche, and as we’re prone to do that, we’ll go with it. Make sushi, not war.
French artist Hubert de Lartigue (nsfw link) has a thing for painting sensual hyper realistic lips that we just want to kiss.
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.
Locusts are bad news, but this is one swarm everybody would want to be visited by. In an attempt to capture “money’s full hypnotic ambivalence” artist Sipho Mabona has created a swarm of giant locusts, all made from uncut US currency notes. We love greenbacks flying straight towards our pockets.
Interesting zombie artwork by illustrator James Ryman. It’s interesting to see zombies that seemed to have evolved a society although nothing really can dampen their hunger for brains.
Levitation and flying seems to be quite an awesome super power. While humans don’t possess such gifts, Photographer Rachel Hulin played God and bestowed the gift on some infants. The power to levitate might not stay, but the cute photographs will continue to live for a long time.
Cities made from potatoes. That sounds kind of delicious and stachy. 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.
Photographer Xavier Lucchesi likes to call this series of portraits Interior Landscapes, for the obvious connection they have with the appearance of human organs. 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.
Fighter jets and aircrafts have something of a glamorous life, but once they are out of the air they sit rotting in some ‘graveyard’ probably reminiscing the days gone by. The Arizona desert houses one huge cemetery like this, but the planes there have some hope of salvation with the Boneyard Project.
