Robin Eley is a hyperrealist painter based in Adelaide. His oil paintings are incredibly meticulous and a fine display of hyperrealistic art. If you want to see them up close, you have until July 6 to get to the Hill Smith Gallery in the Adelaide CBD.
Phwoar! Can you believe Korean-born sculptor Yong Ho Ji creates incredibly detailed human, monster and animal figures using layers of purely recycled vehicle tyres? The detail perplexes me.
Many have tried to take disposable items and turn them into amazing artwork. Most of them have failed. It isn’t an easy task. But somehow Israeli-based designer Idan Friedman has managed to do just that with his ‘ordinary people and disposable objects’ series: taking friends and family members portraits to the next level by embossing them onto aluminum trays.
Tony Orrico is an artist and dancer who creates amazing spirographs with his performance drawings. Where he gets the energy from for such an exhausting creative procedure (which sometimes can last up to four hours), I don’t know. But I like the results of his efforts.
Whoa! A super-talented Japanese artist, who goes by the name of Sue, creates these intricate banana sculptures using her hands and toothpicks. Her portfolio spans dragon, zombie and superhero creations.
If you were cast out on a lonely island with only five things to bring along in order to help you survive – which items or tools would you take with you? I bet Amanda from DuckTapeBandit would choose a huge stack of duct tape roles. Not only is duct tape useful, apparently, you can also make fashion, purses, necklaces, hair clips and flowers from it (to name just a few). Who would’ve thought that duct tape makes a great material for such an amazing collection of versatile art?
Like an artist sketching with a pencil or paintbrush in hand, London-based artist Keira Rathbone creates incredible drawings of famous icons out of vintage typewriters. Rathbone incorporates thousands of painstaking symbols, letters and numbers in each piece of work, some taking up to 90 hours to produce.
