New Art

High-brow art, low-brow art, somewhere in between brow-art. Hmmm. We wear our brows firmly on our face, thank-you. Oh, that’s a photorealistic line drawing of a cat riding a bicycle, you say. Right? No, well, it looks kinda cool so we’ll say it’s art anyway. And we’ll dig it more if it actually has some meaning.

Your face, and 15 others, on a single vase if that’s what makes you happy

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in New Art on Tuesday 20 January 2015

Nick and Martha Desbiens have launched a unique service called Fahz, a concept for a 3D-printed vase that is able to contain multiple profiles of your loved ones. Or, come to think of it, the before-and-after profiles of your various plastic surgeries, too. The different profiles are embedded at various points on the surface of the container.

What Calvin & Hobbes would look like if they had real life as their background

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Art on Thursday 15 January 2015

2015 will mark the 20th year in which Bill Waterson’s ‘Calvin & Hobbes’ stopped publishing new works. The beloved daily comic strip ran from 1985 until 1995. That’s an awfully long time for fans yearning to see new issues of the cartoon duo that shaped their childhood. So while we’re still waiting for Bill Waterson […]

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Art on Thursday 15 January 2015

A few years ago we introduced you to an artist who made masterpieces out of shoelaces. We didn’t think there was much else you could do with a humble shoe lace except canvas art. But one artist has proved shoe laces are far more versatile than we first thought! Shoelace lamps are a thing, people. […]

Revenge bento art: Disgruntled Japanese housewives strike back at husbands and kids

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Thursday 15 January 2015

If this isn’t passive-aggressive, we don’t know what is. In Japan, bento-making is almost elevated to an artform, with housewives making sure the creative homemade lunchbox meals they pack for the family are as pleasing to the eye as they are to their appetites. This is often with immaculate prepping, cutting, sculpting and arranging the […]

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Art on Wednesday 14 January 2015

Every winter for the past four years, three brothers continue a tradition they started right in their front yard. Austin, Connor, and Trevor Bartz of New Brighton, Minnesota make massive snow sculptures that take days, if not, weeks to complete. This year, they created a 12-foot-tall sea turtle! In previous years, they made a shark, a walrus, and a blowfish.

Behold! Dust bunnies as you’ve never seen them before

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Art on Wednesday 14 January 2015

Let’s be honest. If you’re photographing dust as ‘art’, you’ve probably tried it all. And if your dust art should become popular, you know you’ve found your quirky niche. So, hello Klaus Pichler, dust art extraordinaire! How dust art came to be is pretty simple: Pichler moved apartments in Vienna and noticed the dust bunnies were different colours. So he began a ‘years-long photographic inquiry’ into dust. He even compiled so many photographs of dust he released a book, aptly titled Dust.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Art on Wednesday 14 January 2015

Travelling throughout France, photographer Corentin Fohlen took photos of Jérôme Von Zilw.

These intricate salt art patterns by Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto, who dedicated days to create each individual work with table salt, are in turn the visual by-product of Yamamoto’s meditations on his loss — the works are his way of commemorating the memory of his late sister, who lost her life to brain cancer.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Saturday 10 January 2015

Japanese design studio A.P. Works has created a placemat made from twill fabric with a silk-screen pattern that uses the strategic placement of cutlery and plates to manipulate the illusion of the latter bending the placemat.
