I cannot view photos of real life hipsters without being reminded of Hipster Hitler.  Since it’s been quite awhile since I’ve had a post about Hitler, I feel this mention of him will do. {Tumblr}

Wooden People

Peter Demetz is an Italian sculptor of an unusual medium – wood.  I’d say that wood is potentially more difficult to work with than marble or stone.  Wood can split very easily, and if it isn’t dried well, then the entire thing can get ruined.  Marble and stone can do the same, but at least … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: Mars

On the 69th anniversary of the Roswell Incident, I bring you news of this mushroom cloud formation discovered on Mars.  It was taken last year by the Indian Space Research Organization’s Mars Orbiter and I’ve been sitting on this news ever since then.  Forgive me.

Rope Trees

\ Brazillian artist Janiana Mello and Daniel Landini unwind rope to create these beautiful leafless trees diagrams.  Some are pretty neat, some are pretty abstract.  The one with the giant root is kind of in the way and more arty than necessary.  I like the blue one above with the tangle of roots below, very much … Continued

The above is a recreation of Vincent Van Gogh’s Olive Trees, it took a massive effort of weeding, planting, digging, mowing, and other earthscaping techniques to get the work of art visible from … Continued

3D Folded Canvas Art

0

At first glance this looks like an elaborate painting.  And it’s true to a sense.  It has been painted, but it’s many individual pieces of canvas that have been folded onto themselves that then has been painted.  Here, take a closer look: This is the artwork of painters Stephen Stum and Jason Hallman, known as … Continued

Curved Origami

Vietnamese artist Hoàng Tiến Quyết makes origami.  But these aren’t your ordinary origami.  He uses a technique called wet-folding, which as it’s name implies, adds water to the paper before folding.  This technique adds an additional layer of skill to origami as you now need to get the right balance of wetness to the paper so that … Continued
