Remember the one time someone turned a Cold War era nuclear shelter vent into a giant R2-D2? Well, it happened again, but this time, the upsized iconic astromech from everyone’s (or most people’s) favorite sci-fi franchise was found in Germany and it was most certainly legal, unlike the aforementioned. What you see before you is the Zweibrücken Observatory of the Natural Science Association – transformed to look like R2 with clever paint works. Continue reading Professor Turned Observatory Into A Giant R2-D2 And It Is Brilliant!
If you love Slobot, AKA Robot Art, and happen to be particularly enamored by the original movie adaption of the 1964 Roald Dahl novel, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971, Paramount Pictures), then this new piece from Slobot artist Mike Slobot may interest you. Mike Slobot, who is a self-declared Willy Wonka of his Slobot universe, created a robot character inspired by the Ooompa Loompas from the movie which he named Slonkabot 1000-5YL. But this Ooompa Loompas has no love for cocoa beans and it does not make make chocolate; it “work” at Mike’s Slobot Factory churning out robots instead. Continue reading KAWS Companion As Ooompa Loompas Robot Art Is Strangely Attractive
Somewhere in the U.S., one artist has taken upon himself to beautify, ugly, unrealistic action figures and dolls, turning them into desirable collectibles. Meanwhile, somewhere in Europe, one Ukrainian artist is doing the opposite. Olga Kamenetskaya believes that dolls are unrealistic in representing the body proportion and beauty of a real person and thus, she set out to water down the dolls’ beauty. Not sure if she is doing anything to the body shape though, but I guess, as far as body shape goes, it has been taken care by Lammily. In fact, Lammily does a brilliant job in presenting a doll with a look that won’t mislead our young ones with unrealistic beauty. Continue reading Ukrainian Artist ‘Unbeautify’ Dolls, Repaints Them To Create Realistic Look
Bluetooth speakers are just Bluetooth speakers. The most you can do to make one standout is to make it look sleeker and sounds better. You can’t actually make it ‘cool’, or so we thought. But I guess we were wrong because, the Mechanical Spider Bluetooth Speaker is actually cool. That’s right. This ‘unholy’, sci-fi-ish contraption you see here is indeed a Bluetooth speaker. Quite unbelievable that this thing is a Bluetooth speaker, really, but that’s exactly what makes it super cool. Continue reading This Is Probably The Coolest Bluetooth Speaker Because, Mechanical Spider
It has been 30 years since Salvador Dali pass on, but thanks to technology, the prolific Spanish surrealist is coming back to life. But thankfully, not in an eery way.

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. Kirie is the Japanese art of paper-cutting and it ain’t no child’s art. It involves slicing out negative spaces from a single sheet of white paper with the final art placed against a contrasting background to reveal the image. Continue reading Mind Blown: Image Of An Octopus Cut From A Single Piece Of Paper!
After anonymous artist Banksy shocked the art world when his Girl With Red Balloon painting promptly ‘self-destructs’ after being successfully sold in an auction, it inspired a series of memes, along with businesses riding on this act for advertising. It was a shocking act of defiance which I thought will be quickly forgotten. Well, as it turns out, it hasn’t been completely forgotten, at least not by two local artists from West Virginia, U.S.A. Continue reading Here’s A Wacky Christmas Tree Inspired By Banksy Shredded Painting
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. Continue reading Colors Of These Amazing Wall Murals Will Only Be Revealed When Inverted

And that man is UK-based designer Thomas Ollivier, a Senior Creative at advertising agency Tom le French. Continue reading Designer Imagines How Apps And Services Would Be In Pre-Internet Era
Never mind that the basis of dressing up during Halloween has changed. These days, even Elvin Presley can ward off evil spirits, and so do the cumbersome human spider and oh, Walter White too. But straying from its origin has resulted in some rather creative Halloween costumes, such as these famous painting costumes by a group of student from The Amazing School of Special Effects. As you can see, the students have put their skills they have learned from the school out there at the biggest Halloween parade in Japan in Kawasaki.
