Shawn Huckins, a Denver based artist, mimics the exact proportions, font, layout and hues of paint cards found at every home improvement store. His Paint Chip Series explores color choices and their meaning in our everyday lives. It just goes to show how people can find inspiration and beauty in the most mundane items.
Sharon Montrose has combined her passion for photography with her love of animals to create the most amazing collection of animal portraits. From adorable photographs of baby critters to hilarious snapshots of tails to stunning images of wildlife, there is something for everyone in her Animal Print Shop. I personally need a pair of those donkey ears!
Can you believe that these portraits of the London Underground, Piccadilly Circus, Hampstead Heath and Camden Town are constructed entirely of denim?! Sweden-based British artist Ian Berry, aka Denimu, cuts old denim into precise shapes and pieces before meticulously gluing them all together. Using bleach and colored denim, he’s able to experiment with shading and color. Jean-ius.
You know it was a proper celebration when you wake up in the morning to find disco balls on the floor . . . melted and partied out. Cheers to a festive 2012 sendoff tomorrow night!
I just love the way artist Ben Giles alters vintage and fashion photographs to create the most fabulously eccentric collages. Honestly, so good.
Life Magazine has released a series of photographs from the 1949 collaboration between Pablo Picasso and Gjon Mili, the pioneer of stroboscopic light in photography. I’m familiar with the iconic photograph of Picasso and his centaur, but was never able to fully grasp the inventive technique until now. It’s hard to believe that Picasso’s passing strokes, made with just a small electric light, came together so skillfully and were captured so brilliantly on film.
