Copenhagen Harbor Is Home To A Beautiful Man-made Wooden Island

The sea proves to be much of threat to humans, but since we are surrounded by 70 percent of this nature’s wonder, why not embrace it? While I am not exactly clear why Marshall Blecher and Studio Fokstrot have in mind when they came together to create this beautiful island, I saw it as a refreshing place for various activities that does not involve the city. And indeed activities have taken place on this one island. It have been used for activities ranging from BBQ to fishing to more mundane, but no less serene activity like star-gazing.

Toyota Unveiled A Life-size 500,000 Bricks LEGO Camry

Here’s another real-life car that have gotten the LEGO treatment. If you haven’t already notice, that’s a Toyota Camry right there. But why Camry? We have no clue why Camry was chosen among the so many models the Japanese automaker has in its lineup. A promotion of this rather popular model in Australia, I supposed. However, we know that this Life-size LEGO Toyota Camry was created for the Brickman Awesome exhibition and it was designed by Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught, who is one of the only 14 LEGO certified professional in the world.

While many artists are devoted to create hyperrealistic arts and drawings, one artist, Joshua Vides, goes the opposite direction. You see, Jason has the flair of turning what’s real into drawings, a theme which he calls reality to idea. Joshua caught the world’s attention when he turned his sneakers into a pair that looks like cutout of a drawing.

Doodles On Receipts Are Art Like You Have Never Seen Them Before

An Italian artist by the name of Michael Moccia has done some beautiful doodles on rather unusual materials. Normally, we will choose to draw on plain white papers of at least photocopier-grade type, if not actual drawing papers, but Moccia unleashed his creativity on everyday shopping receipts. Yes. You heard that right. Receipts. You know. Those thermal papers (well, usually they are) printed with a list of your purchase along with the prices and stuff? Yeah, those. A strange choice indeed, but the presence of the numbers and words somehow made the art even more alluring. Continue reading Doodles On Receipts Are Art Like You Have Never Seen Them Before

PyeongChang, South Korea Has The Darkest Building On Earth And There’s Nothing Sinister About It

Don’t worry. Hell is not upon us, yet. The “darkest building on Earth” is actually a Hyundai pavilion/art installation presented by artist Asif Khan at the 2018 Winter Olympics, happening from February 9-25 at PyeongChang, South Korea. Essentially a black silhouette, especially when viewed in low light, the building appears a regular straight sided structure, but it is really not. The blackness of the building managed to conceal its parabolic sides and the many tiny lights scattered around its exterior surfaces further serve to distract observers from this fact.

Marvel x Overwatch Mash Up Beautifully Pulled Off By One Artist

It is true that the much-hyped game of 2016, Overwatch, may not share the same iconic status as Marvel’s superheroes, but if you happen to be both an Overwatch and Marvel comics fan, would you have thought of what if there was a mashup between the two?

These Amazing Illustration Of Spaceships Are Actually Inspired By Everyday Household Objects

It takes a true artist to imagine something out of nothing. Eric Geusz is one such artist. A software engineer by day and a freelance artist by night (or, I am guess, whenever he have time), Eric has created some of the most impressive sci-fi spaceships with nothing more than inspiration from everyday, household objects like a can opener, a peeler, a pair of tongs and even accidental occurrence of two gadgets that happen to stack on top of the other – for examples.

Moscow Artist Ches Takes Graffiti Into The Woods With Cellograffiti

What do you understand about graffiti? Beautiful drawings and/or typography usually spray painted on walls (or even trains) illicitly and they are usually part of today’s urban culture? At least, that’s our perception so far, but as it turns out, graffiti can be non-illicit (and non-destructive) and it can also happen beyond our urban settings, like in the forest. Wait, what? It can? Apparently, it is totally possible because, cellophane, AKA shrink-wrap. Thanks to this thin, cellulose transparent sheet that’s usually use for binding loose goods (or keep food fresh at home), Moscow artist Evgeny Ches can take his love for graffiti into the woods.

Photographer Sends Anti-Violence Message With Camera Gear “Weapons”

Carrying placards in a rally/demonstration is one of the many ways of expressing your disgust for violence, but for photographer Jason Siegel, he chose to take on the creative route to share his distaste for violence, in particular gun violence. What Siegel did was creating a series of sculptures depicting guns and weapons of war with materials he is most familiar with: cameras, lenses, and a myriad of photography accessories like external flash unit, 35 mm film rolls et cetera.

Star Wars Sculptures Made From Recycled LV Bags Are Vuitton-tastic!

Leather is a material that is synonymous with luxury and obviously, it wouldn’t be a material of choice for armor that goes on, say, a Stormtrooper or an AT-AT. However, that does not stop artist Gabriel Dishaw’s imagination from running wild. Gabriel has created a series of Star Wars busts and sculptures that features leather as the main material as opposed to the norm of metals, plastics and woods. And he did not just use any leather; he uses old, discarded Louis Vuitton small leather goods like purses and bags that would otherwise be part of the landfill.
