Calling all artists: enter the Cake Wine Archi-Bottle Prize and you could have your work on the next batch of McLaren Vale Shiraz
Cake Wines does things a little differently than other boutique wineries. For starters, the whole team at Cake Wines loves what they do – each person there is obsessed with producing great wine, and giving back to the community (they gave 10% of their proceeds to Australian community radio recently). But there’s one other thing Cake Wines does that sets them apart and that’s collaborating with artists to produce the labeling of their wine with the Archi-bottle Prize.
Using only mirrors as her material, Iranian artist Shirin Abedinirad is able to give us a glimpse of what it’s like to walk along the clouds.
Well, that’s certainly not the least bit disturbing. Dutch artist Rosa Verloop uses nylon stockings to create human sculptures that are sure to give you goosebumps and nightmares.
Japanese artist Masayoshi Matsumoto has turned the simple act of balloon twisting into an art form with his collection of intricate, lifelike balloon sculptures.
Armed with just a pencil, a craft knife, and a single sheet of paper, artist Suzy Taylor from Hertfordshire, England, turns a blank canvas into an intricate and mesmerising artwork.
A few years ago, we featured artist Jason Freeny and his work on a dissected Barbie doll, which showed us the inner workings of an idealized, unrealistic woman. Now he’s back with more grotesque sculptures, all of them revealing the meat and bones of our favorite childhood cartoon characters.
To call Julie Alice Chappell clever would be a complete understatement. This crafty artist kept us in awe last month with her ‘Computer Component Bugs’ which were made with old and unwanted computer parts. We’d never seen anything quite like it, so we asked Julie Alice all about her work in a recent interview.
While dark whirlpools and raging waters can be often seen out in the open ocean, there’s one that might’ve gotten lost in the middle of an old theatre in San Gimignano, Italy.
Tattoo Art Magazine has recently come up with a book that’ll save us all a lot of heartache – The SkinBook. It’s a small notebook filled with synthetic skin that tattoo artists can practice their skills on.
San Francisco-based artist Annica Lydenberg gives discarded items on the street a voice to communicate their plights by painting them with witty self-depreciating puns.
A ‘fur mirror’ that reacts to the people in front of it (and doesn’t make you sad on a bad hair day)
Who knew someone would ever reinvent the mirror? After all, we’ve become accustomed to seeing ourselves in the reflection every morning. But what if the reflection you saw of yourself was based purely on your movements? Pretty cool idea. And that pretty cool idea has been explored by artist Daniel Rozin in the PomPom Mirror.
Hard to believe a fragile material like glass can be manipulated to mimic complex forms such as corals, petals, seaweed, and jellyfish. But in the hands of Columbia, Georgia-based artist Emily Williams, it definitely can.
Whenever Dallas-based artist Esther Pearl Watson would go on road trips, she’d almost always see UFOs. These aliens, however, don’t look like your typical little green men. They look like gummy bears instead.
