Malformed Tom From Tom and Jerry Sculptures Are Absolutely Hilarious

This one is going to make you laugh. These are sculptures created by Japanese artist Taku Inoue, depicting Tom from Tom and Jerry when he was, well, not exactly in his best shape. Not exactly the model most artists would chose to go with when recreating fictional characters, but Inoue did anyways and the results, as you can see, are pretty hilarious (and bizarre). Anywho, you know how is it with Tom and Jerry. They never get along mostly and the results are, Tom giving Jerry a bad time, which almost always ended with Tom on the receiving end of the ‘bad time’.

Giant Inflatable Tentacles Poking Out Of This Building Is A Sight To Behold

It looked like a scene straight out of a horror movie, but fortunately, there is nothing sinister about these giant tentacles that took over the building because they are inflatables. We have reason to believe it does not even have a body. This is a playful art installation by Filthy Luker AKA Luke Egan and Pedro Estrella AKAPete Hamilton – both whom specializes in inflatable art installations. As you can see, it features enormous inflatable tentacles popping out of the windows of the dilapidated Building 611 at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and it was quite a sight to behold.

Giant LEGO Gromit Just Contributed £22K To Bristol Children’s Hospital

Bristol, UK-based charity organization The Grand Appeal has teamed up with the folks over at LEGO to create this giant version of Gromit, Wallace’s pet dog and best friend, from the British clay animation series Wallace & Gromit. The enormous Gromit sculpture, called Cracking Build Gromit!, was designed by LEGO and hand built by expert LEGO Model Builders. All told, this human height LEGO Gromit was the result of 30,456 LEGO bricks and 120 hours of build. Continue reading Giant LEGO Gromit Just Contributed £22K To Bristol Children’s Hospital

British Artist Puppeteering An Air-Powered Octopus Was Quite A Sight

Remember the giant puppetry troupe La Machine? Well, this one here called Ocho the Octopus by British artist and puppeteer Tim Davies is somewhat similar, but it is a lot smaller because, it is an one-man-operation puppet. It is inflatable for obvious reasons. Like because, the entire contraption has to go onto Davies so it can’t be awfully heavy and hence, having it filled with air makes sense since it will be significantly lighter and also, being inflatable allows the tentacles to flex in a natural manner as well as making it safe for close contact with the crowd.

Artist Takes Balloon Twisting To The Next Level With These Sculptures

I am sure most people will be familiar with balloon twisting. You know, the thing that the clown guy does at some children party? Yeah, that. Like, who would have thought balloon twisting could be an art? I, for one, never, until I saw Masayoshi Matsumoto’s work of art. Mind you, though, Matsumoto’s balloon twisting isn’t the typical sausage-looking swords and poodle dogs. They are pretty damn complex creatures from the animal kingdom. It is incredible as it is surreal that those longish balloons could be manipulated and twisted into animals with so much details in them.

These Instant Noodle Warrior Sculptures Deserved To Be A Cartoon

I am not sure if you will still love consuming Japanese instant noodle after seeing Taishi Arimura’s Instant Noodle Warrior Sculptures. What this young graphic designer from Tokyo did was, he weaved a person out of fake noodles and then sprucing up each figure with armor of sort using actual instant noodle Styrofoam packaging to result in strangely attractive ‘noodle warriors’. Final touch to each of these ‘noodle warriors’ includes equipping each with a weapon of either single use fork or chopsticks (there’s one with what appeared to be an egg-based food as its shield).

Here’s A Look At Street Artist RISK’s Massive Scraps-made Shark Sculpture

Modern day legendary street artist RISK continues to surprise and wow audience with this impressive shark sculpture. It does not have a name yet, or at least not that we know of. This work of art here, seen hanging in RISK’s undisclosed studio, is made up of countless scrap materials and it is HUGE. Anyways, RISK, as he explain on his Instagram page, is inspired by the various who did the same before him. He felt the need to carry on the torch lit by the people who did the same. Here are the man’s words straight from his Instagram post: Continue reading Here’s A Look At Street Artist RISK’s Massive Scraps-made Shark Sculpture

Persian Rug Animal Sculptures: Where Animals Emerged From Persian Rugs

Have you ever ‘seen’ images in pattern, textured walls and floors? I am sure some of us have sometimes and so does British sculptor Debbie Lawson. Lawson not only see images, but she turn what she thought she may seen into sculptures that are incredibly surreal and mind-blowing. This particular series is related to animals and old style Persian rugs (she has experimented with other materials too). OK. Maybe they are mostly bears and old-fashioned rugs, really.

Artist Creates Clay Macarons With Disturbingly Realistic Faces Of Babies

From cake with poppable pimples to shag rugs-lookalike cake to non-edible pot pie with anthropomorphic faces, the world is certainly not lacking of bizarre and sometimes disturbing food, fake or real. Well, it looks like it is not going to stop. It seems like more are being uncovered every now and then, and here’s another by Holland-based Singapore artist by the name Lim Qi Xuan. Lim, also known by the pseudonym Quimmy Shimmy, is the creator of this rather disturbing clay macarons that bear incredibly realistic faces of babies. Continue reading Artist Creates Clay Macarons With Disturbingly Realistic Faces Of Babies

This Electroacoustic Installation Looks Straight Out Of 60s’ Sci-Fi Flicks

To be honest, I am clueless about what this electroacoustic installation called Apparatum by PanGenerator is about. All I know are one) it looks awesome and straight out of 60s’ sci-fi flicks and two) it makes analog sounds that sounded as sci-fi-ish as its aesthetic. The Lost In Space vibe is strong here, don’t you think? The contraption is inspired by Polish Radio Experimental Studio, one of the world’s first studio to produce electroacoustic music, but with a slight twist.
