You can’t help but be tickled by the feathery artwork of artist Chris Maynard. Using only a small scalpel as his key appliance, and possibly plenty of precision, he presents a vivid and different dimension of each feather; accentuating its inherent beauty and giving it a highly dynamic visibility.
Give Ivan Hoo some simple basic boards, coloured pencils, pastels and ink and the artist from Singapore will produce some breathtakingly real animals and everyday objects out of them. Even the water he draws seem to be trickling silently. Hoo prefers boards of wood to paper as he feels that the former gives the background a unique texture.
Computer viruses destroy our hard work, cost us money and often cause a fair level of embarrassment at our naivety or apparent sleaziness for clicking on the infected link in the first place. Computer Virus Catalog has taken 20 of the worst viruses of all time and collaborated with artists to immortalise them.
This is no ordinary song. Not even an ordinary song about butts. The Butt Song, as it’s now known, was discovered on the 500-year-old masterpiece The Garden of Earthly Delights, which dates back to 16th century.

Annabel de Vetten-Peterson, who runs Conjurers Kitchen, can do the most fantastic things with her culinary skills. This is waaaay more than making cake: she has an amazing artist eye and hand. And while you normally think of cakes as being sweet, her favoured subjects are often dark – skulls, blood, guts, a realistic skinned swan and little foetus chocolate heads.
Ooh, wicked. Italian designer Marco Sodano recreated three classic paintings with the use of Lego bricks: Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Lady with an Ermine, plus Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring. These are so brilliant, the lack of details hardly hurts.
Hobart is becoming so art centric, it’s seriously brilliant. The Alabama Hotel is situated in the inner city and has been recently revived and re-opened after a near-decade long hiatus. Its boutique budget status keeps a personal creative feel without costing a year’s pay. Artwork on the walls includes Tom O’Hearn, Aeden Howlett and Stu […]
You wont believe this isn’t a real photo. In fact, that any of them aren’t real. These stunning, hyper-real digital artworks were created by the incredible artists at CGI Studios using just their considerable computer chops. And here I thought The Matrix was another world away in the future.
Eddie Botha is a South African-born Australian artist (via Malaysia) who has been doodling all his life. Getting his first break drawing pictures for his school newspaper, he is basically untrained. While in school, Botha was forced to write with his right hand even though he is left handed. Now he uses both hands to produce his artwork. Inspired by pop art, impressionism, manga and steampunk, Botha’s work youthfully captures the colours of Africa, the vibrancy of Malaysia, and the natural surrounds of Australia.
