Human Paintings Come to Life (7 Pics)

Classic paintings have their very own life, especially when you see them up close in person. But these have taken on new lives in real people. They’ve been recreated down to the detail. Colors, clothing, expressions and texture are converted into a photograph replicating the look and feel of the original art.

Art from Fire and Matches (6 Pics)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Art can be made from anything. Any kind of material, physical, digital or quadrical. These images were photographed at just the right moment to capture matches making fire and smoke into a symbol or narrative. An interesting method, and the outcome is very nice to look at.

3D Street & Sidewalk Art (9 Pics)

Illusions are created through tricks of perspective and space in these artworks. You see something that can’t be there even while your eyes fall into another dimension. I hope this street art is seen by many people before it disappears from the face of the earth.

Urban Knitting (11 Pics)

I don’t know how they do it, but there’s a collective of knitting experts that are putting sweaters on everything. Statues, cars, and trees will stay warm through the winter with their new rags. The urban knitting community is growing as more people learn to knit around any kind of shape. I just hope I […]

Devilish Furniture (15 Pics)

A home decorating in these furnishings would probably be located in one of the layers of hell. These were all crafted by designer Michel Haillard, a man with a mind of horns and animal skin stretched taut. Some pieces are made of crocodile, some of ostrich and a few zebra. Every couch is unique. The […]

10 Awesome Bus Ads

Buses can be so boring. Sometimes I wish every bus could have a unique paint job or at least something other than an ad for Hollywood’s latest excretion. You can imagine the look on my face when I found the buses pictured below. Each one is painted with an advertisement in a creative and inventive […]

Painted on Buildings (9 Pics)

Buildings painted onto buildings. They create an optical illusion to make you see a completely different structure. It’s very neat but I wonder how many people end up walking into a brick wall just trying to get a closer look.

Back to the Future (10 Pics)

Argentine photographer Irina Werning calls her series of photos “Back to the Future”. She finds people from old photographs and recreates the picture with how they look in their current age. It’s an interesting way to compare the changes that people go through as they grow older. The age differences vary between subjects. It’s amazing […]

Baffling Korean Comic (20 Pics)

kcomic_01

This comic makes little to no sense. The artwork is atrocious. It’s offensive. But I still read it all the way through. And apparently it’s viral in Korea. This is the English translated version. See what you make of the insanity and the elastic hip of our protagonist whose name is Johnson and his gender […]

Frosty the Patented Snowman

A New York inventor has successfully patented his way of building the perfect snowman. He applied five years ago with a 25-page document detailing how to roll snowballs and construct the arms and head. The document includes diagrams of symmetrical snowballs and how to best place them together. The inventor aims to create the perfect […]
