One mural completed at the Stuk Arts Centre, Belgium. Materials needed? Water and one mossy wall. Result? Brilliant.
We’d blogged about moss graffiti before. Love.
Life size prints of the cross section of various cut trees by Bryan Nash Gill. Brings new meaning to the genre of Wood Cut printing doesn’t it? I can imagine how awesome a good sized tree print would look on the wall – to me the wood rings are totally hypnotic. The prints are also reminiscent of topography, metereology and thumbprint studies, all wonderful things in my book. And I love the difference between the different species too. Totally beautiful.
I am presuming the trees were already (sustainably) chopped down, otherwise it’d be a completely daft idea. Keep your eyes peeled for a chopped stump near you and get your printing gear on people!
Clearly I am feeling dotty – after sharing a beagle made of non parallels last week, I felt compelled to also share this pointillist treat. And his jars of ink pens? A visual treat in themselves.
Liu Bolin, is an artist from Shandong, China, tagged the real life invisible man. It can take up to ten hours to complete one photo. Just incredible.
Check out Tom Deininger. I just stumbled across him and loooove his junk assemblages and sculptures. Ultra clever.
It seems to me that art takes on a whole new level of commentary when it is made out of what we would otherwise throw away. It says so much for the quality of what we discard or don’t use, that someone can see or create beauty in it. Although creating a beautiful soft rabbit out of discarded cigarette butts may be a bridge too far for me? Strangely unsettling.
