Hardly anything is known about this artist, who skillfully combines abstract color layers with black outlines: as a matter of fact, keeping his identity a secret is part of his work vision.
We‘ll probably never tire of admiring the beautiful effects that long-exposure photography allows us to achieve. Idaho-based photographer Lisa Wood sure knows a trick or two with it as well, as she demonstrates in her gorgeous Art of Farmland photo series.
What was once a dull and grey wall on the streets of Paris has now become a lush and flourishing vertical garden thanks to Patrick Blanc. Even though this creation on the corner of Aboukir Street and Petits Carreaux Street looks like a well-rooted forest , it took only seven weeks to grow!
When illustrator and artist Jenny’s daughter asked to play dress up with her hamster, she knew she had to find a creative solution, because dressing up a hamster wouldn’t really work. That’s when she had an even better idea – cardboard costumes!
With just some patience and the Stop Motion Studio iPhone app by Cateater studio, Minneapolis-based photojournalist and blogger Ben Garvin created this geeky and funny video, titled “Magic Beard”. In just 2 minutes, he makes various objects disappear or travel around his facial hair, which also change their shape, size, and otherwise amuse the viewers. Sadly, looks like it comes to a tragic end – and yet, we’re still laughing!
One of the nicest childhood memories is how every fairy-tale we heard would always end in words “and they lived happily ever after”. Photographer Dina Goldstein imagines what their lives could’ve gone like in her award-winning “Fallen Princess” photos series.
Turns out that bees’ honeycomb-building skills can be applied to create amazing 3D sculptures, where the desired shape is built entirely out of hexagonal wax cells.
In the advertising world, it’s getting increasingly harder to get through to the customer, as the maze of ads has become just too overwhelming. Photographer Rene Mesman, working in collaboration with Dutch postproduction specialists at Souverein Weesp, was hired to conduct a photoshoot for shampoo and conditioner commercials, and found a very creative angle to get people’s attention. The idea was to shoot luscious hairdos, created on different fowls — an owl, a crow, and a falcon. The final results of the “Coiffure le Bird” series are actually pretty impressive!
Each bird poses with a digitally drawn hairdo, matching his feather colors and general posture, and the combination gives a really hilarious yet impressive result. The birds cover the traditional blond-brunette-redhead palette, and prove that there still are ways to creatively promote such everyday products as shampoo. Which of the stylish fowls is your favorite?
Every language is unique in its history, grammar and even more so – in its sound. While French, for instance, is universally be agreed to be the language of love because of the way it soothes the ear, there are other languages – like German – who might make even some of the most beautiful things sound a bit… well, rough. The Copy Cat Channel on Youtube posted a hilarious comparison of what same words sound like in different languages. Besides the different words, the expressions on the speakers’ faces and the way they convey the word with their body language is priceless. As you might’ve guessed, German does stand out quite a bit!
