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. ”

Art made from Cutting Wire Mesh

Ephemeral Portraits Cut from Layers of Wire Mesh by Seung Mo Park

source:  http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1ikp5m/:1KMMlKwsV:blC0PgpH/www.thisiscolossal.com/2012/04/ephemeral-portraits-cut-from-layers-of-wire-mesh-by-seung-mo-park/

Using a process that could be the new definition of meticulous, Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park creates giant ephemeral portraits by cutting layer after layer of wire mesh. Each work begins with a photograph which is superimposed over layers of wire with a projector, then using a subtractive technique Park slowly snips away areas of mesh. Each piece is several inches thick as each plane that forms the final image is spaced a few finger widths apart, giving the portraits a certain depth and dimensionality that’s hard to convey in a photograph, but this video on YouTube shows it pretty well. Park just exhibited this month at Blank Space Gallery in New York as part of his latest series Maya (meaning “illusion” in Sanskrit). You can see much more at West Collects.

Stormtrooper Helmet Art

Star Wars fans are familiar with the standard TK series of plasti-steel white blaster armor with com helmet and HUD vision slits used by the Emperor’s Imperial Stormtroopers.  However, you may not have seen the alternative art for these helmets…  Enjoy!
