Mind Blown: Image Of An Octopus Cut From A Single Piece Of Paper!

At some point in time in our lives, we all had experienced cutting out bits from a piece of paper to create an image of some sort. Let me assure you that this octopus you see here is not that. This is the next level of paper cutting art. Neither is it a drawing. And oh, yeah, it was cut from a single piece of paper, alright. This form of art is known as Kirie.

Colors Of These Amazing Wall Murals Will Only Be Revealed When Inverted

Graffiti or wall murals are writing or artwork painted on walls, often with aerosol paint, and they are pretty much what you see. At least, that’s the norm, but this norm, does not apply to Colombian graffiti artist Sepc’s latest wall mural painting technique. Right off the bat, our naked eyes see these murals, called Revelado, as negatives, like the image on the negative of analog camera’s film. These wall murals are aptly described as “positive and negative,” and true to the description, they can only be fully appreciated when “developed” into a “positive” image.

These “Shredding” Postcards Is Inspired By Banksy’s Shocking Act

Inspired by Banksy’s epic ‘self destruct’ painting that shocked the world, Belgian graphic designer, Lesha Limonov, has created a series of postcards that kind of replicate the shredded Banksy painting. Each postcard comprises of two parts: a paper frame that looks like a 2D version of the frame that the Girl With Red Balloon was framed and a “painting” that has pre-cut lower half. Obviously, a secret shredder is not present. That would be too over. Continue reading These “Shredding” Postcards Is Inspired By Banksy’s Shocking Act
