I Create Giant Sculptures From Scrap Wood

by Thomas Winther

I’m a Danish artist Thomas Dambo. Everyday I scavenge wood and other materials in my home city Copenhagen, and create different sculptures.

I truly love working with scrap wood. There’s so much of it everywhere so I can pretty much build what ever I can imagine. I hope my sculptures will inspire others to recycle.

Vancouver-based artist Fiona Tang creates large-scale murals of animals using charcoal, chalk pastel, and acrylic on paper that at first glance appear 3D. Tang makes use of a technique called trompe l’oeil where shadows and perspective within the two dimensional drawing are used to trick the viewer into thinking the piece is three dimensional. Tang recently graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and you can see more of her work over on Facebook. (via Juxtapoz, My Modern Met)

Banana Art

In my ongoing fascination with art using unusual items, I bring you banana art.  Thanks to The Chive for pointing out this great new expressive form.  Hopefully you will also find it as a-peel-ing as I do…

“Tattoing a banana entails a sharp-pointed tool grazing the skin of a banana peel, without puncturing through it entirely, to create art. It utilizes a natural process known as oxidation—a browning of the skin that’s exposed to oxygen—to draw. ”

Beach Art Created by a Man with a Rake

A Man Takes A Single Rake to The Beach. And When You Zoom Out And See It…

If you live in San Francisco, California, then you may be lucky enough to come across the art of Andres Amador. He doesn’t paint or sculpt. He prefers a medium that is temporary but absolutely beautiful: a sandy beach at low tide. He uses a rake to create works of art that can be bigger than 100,000 sq. ft.
He spends hours creating these intricate masterpieces, knowing that the tide will soon come in and wash away his work forever.
For Andres, his art is “more about the process and less about the result.” He knows that it will all be temporary. While making his beach mural explorations, he uses a rope as a guide so that he can make the geometric patterns. When asked WHY he does it, Andre gives the best answer… “The unanswerable question! Its fun. I get to be at the beach.” Consider yourself lucky if you happen to stumble across one of his playa paintings, because it won’t be there long. By raking up the wet sand at low tide, he is able to make contrasting sand colors. He even offers his services, helping people propose. Or even teaching others to create these beachscapes as part of a team building exercise. According to Andres, it only takes a couple of hours once the tide is low enough to create the designs. Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
You should definitely Like Andres On Facebook and Visit His Web Site where you can buy prints of his designs if you want.
Share his work. It’s truly awesome.

Paintings made with Buttons

Mind Blowing Paintings made by miscellaneous objects.

An outstanding artist Jane Elizabeth Perkins in her Plastic Classics art series, used many miscellaneous objects she found, like buttons, pins, clips, pen cap, plastic toys, LEGO pieces, key chain, keys, etc. She have re-created paintings like DaVinci’s Mona Lisa, and made portraits of famous Albert Einstein, Queen of Britain, and Nelson Mandela.

When you inspect closely, it will be revealed that many minor forgotten objects she have used to make these beautiful and impressionist painting. She have used many objects in its original form, not even the colour have been used for most of the objects. Her skills are unmatched and her work is so impressive and astonishing that we couldn’t stop ourselves from sharing it with you guys. Please check the very innovative work done by an artist from UK. Observe and watch closely and you will be amazed to find the objects she have used for her impressive paintings. I loved it.
