Bizarre (and a little creepy) porcelain art by Johnson Tsang

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Art on Monday 2 June 2014

If sculptures of chubby babies making weird faces give you the creeps (it’s a thing), look away now, and hope this art doesn’t appear in your nightmares. These glossy porcelain sculptures are created by Hong Kong artist Johnson Tsang, and he refers to these pieces as ‘his babies’. Since 1993, Tsang’s work has been exhibited […]

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Photography on Monday 2 June 2014

Nina Röder’s photography project Mutters Schuhe (Mother’s Shoes) depicts herself, mother and grandmother wearing the same outfit, in the same pose, in the same setting. All three sets are ‘based on pivotal moments or memories from Röder’s mother’s life’.

To stop public urination, ‘pissing tankers’ now patrol the streets of Mumbai

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in Cool Travel on Monday 2 June 2014

India has a wet problem. And it has nothing to do with their droughts. Years of campaigns, big and small, have failed to stop grown men from urinating in public at anywhere and any time they feel like it. Even setting up more public urinals and imposing huge fines didn’t stop the random splattering, so […]

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Illustration on Sunday 1 June 2014

Elsa might not have wanted to build a snowman, but Tim Burton sure did – or at least the young illustrator who drew in his iconic style. Japanese artist Yoko just re-imagined Disney’s Frozen as a Tim Burton film, giving Elsa, Anna, Sven, Hans, and Kristoff, a very dark makeover. In this short exclusive interview, Yoko talks more about herself and her beloved series. [Read our original post about her here.]

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in Video on Saturday 31 May 2014

We’re a hardened bunch in the Lost At E Minor office (ok, ok, granted, we do run the odd cute animal post every now and then), but even we were deeply moved when watching this video about Melvin, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, and his heartfelt determination to buy a bunch of roses for his beautiful wife Doris, who has taken care of him for him for so many years.

Look closely: these are not flocks of birds, they are flocks of plastic bags

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in New Photography on Saturday 31 May 2014

This starling set of ‘photos’ by French photographer Alain Delorme were painstakingly composed from stills of plastic bags that he duplicated multiple times to achieve the result of mimicking a flock of birds gracefully souring through the sky. As he told Wired Magazine: ‘I have always found plastic bags across my path, no matter where I travelled in the world. This plastic bag could be anywhere – even hanging on a tree. I thought that it had to fly to land there.

Watch what happens when these women see their own vaginas for the first time!

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Friday 30 May 2014

For any number of reasons, ranging from a too large stomach (her words, not ours), and a long standing desire to be a nun (huh?!), these women have literally never seen their own vaginas. Never! So, of course, YouTube sensation DaveyWavey decided to, erm, introduce them to it. In the nicest possible way. The results were pretty fascinating (and amusing) to see, as this video below reveals.

Watch these ballet dancers pull off incredible moves in slo-mo

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Video on Friday 30 May 2014

If you could only master the very basics in ballet, not to worry. Many of us will never perform as professionals, but those with enough talent to twirl and spin and perform, err, seven double and one triple fouettés en tournant are probably dancing their way onto a stage near you. PostTV has put all our half-second tippy-toe dances to shame and found some of the most talented ballet dancers around.

Forget about the Rolex and the grill. I have a feeling it’s gonna be all about the 24k gold mountain bike soon. Because, when you’ve got to impress the world with your material possessions, nothing comes close to an obnoxious, yet quite pretty looking, gold bicycle. The bike is created by The House of Solid […]

This brave model looks totally different from the others

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in New Fashion on Friday 30 May 2014

19-year-old Chantelle Brown-Young may just be the world’s first and only model with vitiligo, a condition that causes depigmentation of the skin. You may have also heard that one of the world’s greatest pop icon – Michael Jackson – had it. Vitiligo is caused by a malfunctioning immune system. It has no cure to date, and affects less than one percent of the world’s population.

These are the world’s most obsessive album collectors

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Photography on Friday 30 May 2014

A few years ago, I accidentally sold six Beatles records (in mint condition) for $1 each at a garage sale. I’ve always wondered what might’ve happened had I not sold them, along with all the other records I sold that day. Maybe I’d have a gigantic vinyl collection. Maybe, just maybe, I’d have a record […]

Adding fairytale characters and superheroes in photos makes life a lot cooler

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Art on Thursday 29 May 2014

Once upon a time in Milan, there lived a photographer and illustrator by the name of Giulia Pex, who added whimsical elements to her daily life by illustrating fictional characters in photos. Most mornings she’ll have cute woodland creatures and a fairy godmother watching over her as she sleeps. Sometimes she’ll take a ride with Prince Charming on his dashing bike stallion. Her dad also joins the fantastical fray, adding superhero references to his daily chores.

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Illustration on Thursday 29 May 2014

Take a look at these illustrations. Now take another look. The images by Pawel Kuczynski are delightfully intricate in their meaning, so much so that they keep giving every time you look. While the polish artist’s style remains the same, his messages are as diverse as they are powerful.
