Designed by a university sculpture class under the guise of Larry and Friends Design Group, the goal of the project was to create a new source of illumination in midtown Detroit, where very few streetlights have left the area dim. Resembling […]
Who knew coat hangers could create ferocious and realistic animal sculptures? ‘Coathangers’ is a collection of sculptures by Scottish sculptor David Mach, in which he uses an unconventional component, wire coat hangers, as his main art material. The collection includes animal figures like a bear, a gorilla, a tiger, an elk (or is that a deer?), as well as human figures like an astronaut.
‘Cinismo Ilustrado’ which translates to ‘Cynicism Illustrated’, is a cynical but witty series of illustrations by illustrator and designer Eduardo Sales, in which he expresses his thoughts on technology, pop culture, the economy, religion, politics, and trends.

Whoah, trippy. In the 30s, French artist and astronomer (yes, what a combination) Lucian Rudaux did a bunch of illustrations featuring humans with animal-like attributes for a series written by his pal Professor Rene Thevenin. The Fish-Men are especially terrifyingly bizarre, while, funnily, the Insect-Men, with six human limbs climbing mountains, we don’t know, just […]

One man’s trash is another artist’s treasure, or I think that’s how it goes.

‘I find your lack of Potassium disturbing’. Dark Forces is a sculpture by artist Matthew J. Mahoney, in which he takes a cardboard cut-out of our favourite Sith Lord and attaching banana peels with drywall screws. He also took advantage of the banana’s ‘natural adhesive’ to make them stick on the cut-out for good. At […]
In art, anything can be your canvas. Even bananas! Hong Kong-based designer Marta Grossi has a simple but fun series about bananas. Every night, she gives the fruit a makeover using different materials like black markers, glitter, thumb tacks, and paint. She then takes a photo of it using her iPhone 5 and eats her […]
This video is probably the most stunning thing we’ve seen in quite a while. Using a 2.5D animation effect, Rino Stefano Tagliafierro brought these iconic paintings to life in a beautiful, haunting way.

This skull looks like it came straight out of an Indiana Jones film. Carved from amethyst and agate crystals, which historically represent good luck and stability, this incredible gem is 7.6 inches long from front to back. But really, who wouldn’t want this guy displayed on their mantle?
Yorkshire-based Mister Finch uses vintage textiles such as old aprons, used curtains, and a recycled wedding dress, to fashion out new life in the form of birds, spiders, rabbits, and other creatures.

Can you imagine eating cereal out of this adorable cat bowl? Or serving hot soup in a cute little itty-bitty whale or hedgehog? Meals will never be the same again when you’re dining with these sleepy critters.
You know the saying, ‘when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade?’ For street artists, it goes something like, ‘when life gives you a condemned New York City apartment building, you make a secret illegal art show’.
