If normal art somehow bores you and you want the next best thing or just something a bit peculiar you’ve ended up in the right place. I’ve wanted to write this article for some time and have gathered a lot of interesting pictures that I want you to see. It’s very interesting how much the imagination and creativity of some people evolve to create beautiful new art forms, some of them maybe a little strange, but you gotta appreciate what they’ve achieved.
Kate MccGwire modeled pigeons’ feathers with a lot of patience to create impressive artworks that not only look good but I think they are also give a pretty good feeling at touch.
I don’t know who did this but I’d love to see more examples of this brilliant idea to create complicated cut out figures out of paper.
Luke Jerram is a man who works with viruses and no, he’s not a virologist. He likes to show the people the beauty of viruses and yes, there is one, portrayed in these figurines made of glass.
Cecelia Webber thought it would be interesting to create flowers out of people that stand in different positions. I say she was wrong. It’s absolutely fascinating that she thought of such a thing and more important it’s incredible what she actually achieved.
I remember that when I was playing with matches it was a little bit different (of course, just slightly) than what Pei-San Ng is doing with them. I have to admit he’s doing a better job.
Faceless art has been defined by Sabi van Hemert, a dutch artist which creates fusions out of children and animals. Scary idea but it’s not at all as scary as it sounds: “I create images that evoke associations with people and animals. I imagine the balance between the many conflicting feelings and thoughts that a man can have. Balance between opposites as attractive / repulsive, happy / sad or fear / security. My pictures have something in them that causes you to think what to see and feel that it gives you, and then confirm again denied.”
This interesting idea was created by Dominic Wilcox and not how you would probably imagine. He didn’t just put the tin foil on his face cause it would have been a little bit tricky to make it stay still; he placed the tin foil on an old plaster mold of his face.
Jennifer Maestre had an idea which was a little bit dangerous at first, of creating objects with nails. The problem with that idea wasn’t that the nails where pointy and dangerous, she just couldn’t get a lot of form variations and the shapes she could do were limited. That’s how she ended up using crayons, colored ones actually to get the most out of her ideas and she has done that very well.
This thing is massive and is very popular in Asia where people respect the human’s communion with the nature but it’s starting to become pretty popular in Europe too. It implies a lot of discipline and patience to cut the bush in such a way and no, they’re not plastic leaves.
Guido Daniele is not new anymore to the scene. He’s doing this thing for a long time and most of us have seen its works in advertisements. He is also known for his full body paintings, not just hand painting. You should check out his site, he has an impressive amount of pictures.
