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.

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

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.
