What you see here is an arcade machine that is worthy of an art piece. OK. It is an arcade machine per se. It is art first, arcade second and it is not quite the Oh You Ken kind of arcade. This arcade, called “A Maze,” is the work of art by artist Marco Iannicelli and it is very analog. Like 100 percent analog, save for the electric motor that is use to manipulate the 7 concentric rings maze atop. It sits a minimalist frame in black, presumably as a contrast to the star of the show, the maze. Continue reading A Maze: An Artful Play Of Arcade You Have Never Seen Before
What happens if a vampire loves the water? Well, I think he/she would love what designers Andrew Greenbaum and Ian Felton have done. The two designers have come together to design a coffin… float. Yup. That’s a floating coffin right there. Aptly called Pom Pom Floats Pink Coffin, this is as functional as a pool toy, as it is an art piece, fit for the sea or just about any pool. Continue reading Finally, There Is An Inflatable Pool Toy Fit For Water-loving Vampires
Have you ever walked out of an art exhibition thinking it was nothing short of a shit show? If you haven’t, then you should really see Vienna-based art collective Gelatin’s exhibition entitled Vorm – Fellows – Attitude. Now, I am not here to bash the artists’ works. Vorm – Fellows – Attitude is literally a shit show because, it features nothing but enormous sculptures of turd. You know. Turd as in shit as in human excrement? Like, that’s super weird! Continue reading Vorm-Fellows-Attitude Is Literally A Shitty Art Exhibition!
How do you like your pizza? Cooked over actual firewood oven? Or do you prefer pizzas made in an actual firewood car-oven? I am not even joking. Car pizza oven is real, but obviously, you won’t get to have a taste of it, unless you are a friend of French artist Benedetto Bufalino because has turned a real car, a Ford Mondeo (Ford Fusion in the US) into a pizza oven on wheels. Continue reading Artist Turning A Car Into A Pizza Oven Is Just About The Coolest Car Mod
Imagine the world of Star Wars being played out by insects (think: Antz). Can you visualized how it would be? Well, you don’t have too. Just take a look at Richard Wilkinson’s works. The illustrator has created a series of realistic insects decorated to look like iconic characters from the Star Wars Universe. Some of them are highly recognizable, like the fly that is actually Darth Vader, while some took a while to register (Wasp Stormtrooper and bug Sand Crawler for examples). Continue reading Illustrator Imagines Iconic Star Wars Characters As Insects
War sucks. War is no good. Regardless, I am fascinated by war machines that were the direct results of conflicts. I bet Poland concept artist Michal Kus must have shared the same fascination. The difference is, he has the knack for imagination AND translating them into beautiful art. Kus imagine what happens if the second world war continued into the 50s. Continue reading Artist Imagines War Machines If WWII Continued Through To The 50s
Something interesting popped this week which I never thought could have happen. At least not when it involved one of America’s biggest brand: Old Navy (which, for the uninitiated, is a Gap Inc. brand). It has nothing to do with tech nor lifestyle, but I felt compelled to share because, it could be a classic case of corporate bullying. Anyways, Lili Chin is an illustrator who are accustomed to her art stolen, but this particular theft was no ordinary one; it was Old Navy who supposedly did the deed. Here’s words straight from the victim’s mouth: Continue reading No Kidding. Did Old Navy Really Ripped Off Somebody’s Artworks?
Eddie Putera is a Malaysian artist with a knack for creating super realistic dioramas of his childhood memories. Scenes like tattered shop houses, complete with fruits store and a person repairing air conditioner, a K-bike parked idly on broken planks besides a tree and a run-down shed, and more were vividly recreated. Rapid urbanization may have taken away those good old scenes, but they are very much alive through Eddie Putera’s magical hands. Continue reading Artist Recreate Childhood Memories Through Mind-blowing Dioramas
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. He has also turn other a range of other objects and places into drawing that will make you feel like a scene straight out of Alice in Wonderland, or the particular scenes from Night in the Museum 3 (Twentieth Century Fox, 2014). Continue reading Artist Turned An Acura NSX Into A Drawing Of Itself With A Wrap
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
