The grandson of a railroad man and the son of a gearhead, artist Justin Gershenson-Gates has been surrounded by mechanical things from his early childhood. Now, all grown up, he is still passionate about tearing mechanical gadgets apart and making something new and fascinating out of them. That’s how his “A Mechanical Mind” sculpture series came to life.
A Japanese housewife, Caroline, creates these lovable cat-themed sweets annually on Cat’s Day (that’s on 22 February in Japan). These cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends.

Alasdair Thomson is a sculptor living and working in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is Italian-trained and has significant experience in carving large scale sculpture and other elements of decorative stonework, both in Scotland and abroad.
Through his current series of sculptures, Alasdair is exploring the way fabric hangs and folds, and is attempting to capture that lightness and gracefulness in stone. Named ‘The Identity Collection’, his recent sculptures are carved copies of garments donated by his friends and family. Seeking to capture the characters of those he invited to donate, he surrendered the control of the content of the series by allowing others to submit garments of their choosing for him to carve. The results are simple and understated, as well as timeless and nostalgic.

For almost 15 years now, Korean artist Hyungkoo Lee has been creating these transparent bizarre helmets, which significantly distort the wearer’s face. The helmets in his “The Objectuals” series contain openings with different kinds of lenses that exaggerate, reduce or otherwise disfigure the faces within, making them look like characters from unsettling, futuristic nightmares.
This awesome art series was created by British artist Mark Nathan Willetts. He created the work as a homage to the zombie genre as well as the popular television show “The Walking Dead”. The choice of medium was bread due to the wordplay of “Walking Bread. To draw on people’s imagination, the characters were each cut from a single slice of bread. Whilst colourful lighting was used to evoke the comic book feel. See if you can recognise your favourite scenes!!
