Ooh, sometime back last year, a street artist going by the name of Bored apparently took to the streets of Chicago and planted Monopoly-inspired boardgame bits on the pavements — right down to the dice, the player token pieces, and even Chance and Community Chest cards. Wish we were there then.
Once in a while, you’ll come across a strange building in an unfamiliar place and you’ll go ‘Let me take a selfie with this weird building!’ Here are some of those buildings that make that list.
Genius! An unknown street artist has apparently been making the rounds in Cologne to paste over fast food billboards with the recipe ingredients needed to make good food. Simple, but drives home the message so effectively.
Fresh out from being stranded in Vietnam for a week, I can attest that Hans Kemp’s somewhat nightmarish documentation of motorbikes loaded with all sorts of crazy loads of stuff from duck carcasses to bottled water taking a pillion ride, is a real phenomenon here. In fact, he has an entire book, Bikes of Burden, […]
This is what happens when gun control goes to the movies: guns get replaced by approving thumbs-up. Coupled with suitably intense looks from the gunmen — er, we mean, thumbmen — these doctored images almost reach abysmal heights. After all, as what the blog says, ‘Real tough guys don’t need guns, they just need a […]
If you’re ever walking in the streets of Odessa, Ukraine, and some guy goes ‘Wow that’s girl’s so beautiful! What a doll’, you might want to believe what he said, like literally. 20-year old Alina Kovaleskayais is quickly becoming famous online for being a real-life Barbie. She has the natural features of Barbie, which are big eyes, a small nose, and plump lips.
These bodyscapes by Allan Teger have a beautiful sense of humor. Complete with tiny figures, bridges, sailboats, and horses, Teger literally creates another world using human bodies. These feel both playful, childish, and sexual all at once. My favorite photo has a sailboat bravely facing the vast expanse of human flesh. The contrasting scales of […]
Florida-based comms agency Sachs Media Group teamed up with photo restoration company Phojoe to imagine how musicians — who went to rock n’ roll heaven before their time — might look like if they were still alive today. To be honest, the one of Kurt Cobain doesn’t look too flattering; it looks like he’s had too many takeout dinners.
Sometimes the best artworks aren’t found inside a stuffy, old art gallery or museum. Sometimes, they may just be found on the street, or on the lid of a manhole, or on a wall. Here are the 10 best street art works from 2013, so far!
Need a creative jolt to get those inspiration juices flowing? Take a look at this post on Desizn World which outlines 20 Innovative Examples of Guerilla Advertising. Even if you’re not in the advertising industry, these clever ideas are sure to at least make you chuckle.
There are thousands of photos that are uploaded online every day. You’ll occasionally run into one or two incredible photos you simply can’t get enough of. Because we love spoiling our Lost At E Minor readers, here’s 10 of them.
If you look up at the sky on a dark, starry night, sooner or later you’ll begin to realize the magnitude of the universe and your minuscule place within it. You’ll imagine yourself as a tiny, tiny speck in an endless space of planets and stars. That you’re standing on a floating piece of rock among possibly millions of other floating pieces of rocks. Now look at this photo recently taken from the Hubble Telescope.
These cityscape drawings by Stefan Bleekrode are deceptively realistic images of well-known existing and imaginary cities the world over. Although drawn in a seemingly realistic manner further enhanced by the use of light and shade whenever possible, most drawings also present themselves as highly accurate architectural and perspective studies. All drawings he made so far were done entirely from memory and executed using ink and watercolour.
Who would have thought this thing we throw at our friends after a snowstorm would actually be something so beautiful? Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov captures the geometric beauty of single snowflakes and shows us the delicate and detailed world we don’t usually see. With the help of an add-on to his camera, he is able to isolate and capture with immense focus the details of the snowflake. He usually stands on his open balcony and captures snowflakes with a glass surface. He then uses an LED flashlight to illuminate the opposite side of the glass, and wool for background.
Put this one on the bucket list. Just over a thousand feet below the ground lies ‘one of the most valuable monuments of material and spiritual culture in Poland’ – the Wieliczka Salt Mine. While mining has halted in this salt mine (it stopped producing table salt in 2007), this place is still as popular as ever, thanks to an “underground amusement park” of sorts, including grand halls, health spas and accommodations. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, Wieliczka is holding an 80s themed disco party come New Years.
This artist from China dedicated four years carving out the longest continuous wooden sculpture in the world. How’s that for dedication? Zheng Chunhui, the man behind the sculpture, recently unveiled his masterpiece in Fujian. It measures 40 feet long and involves intricate and precisely detailed 3D landscapes. It’s based on a painting called ‘Along the […]
Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has two new “psychedelic” art installations at the David Zwirner gallery in New York. One is called Infinity Mirrored Room – The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away and the other one, Love is Calling.
Before reading this, a warning: Lots of feeling ahead. Prepare tissue. Joy Sessions are both heart-warming and heart-breaking portraits of terminally ill or elderly pets with their owners (read: family). Usually, these pets pass away soon after the photos are taken. Minneapolis-based pet photographer Sarah Beth recalls the inspiration behind Joy Sessions.
How would you know if the girl you’re going to marry really is The One? When you ask her if you guys can have a World of Warcraft-themed wedding, and she says yes, then she’s The One. Never let her go, you lucky man, never let her go! In their prenuptial photo shoot, Craig and Zoe dressed up as World of Warcraft characters, King Varien Wrynn and Tyrande Whisperwind, respectively.
Want to live up to a hundred years old? Drink more whiskey and smoke more cigarettes. Dorothy Howe recently celebrated her 100th birthday at a pub with her friends. She has smoked about 460,000 cigarettes in her lifetime. She started smoking at the age of 16 and has 15 cigarettes a day.
