LEGO Luigi Looks Bad-Ass

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Luigi fan creates a 70-cm-tall replica of his favorite video-game character.

So Luigi isn’t quite as popular as his brother, Super Mario, so he usually does all the work while Mario shines in the spotlight, does that mean he doesn’t deserve some attention? “Absolutely not!” said one of his fans and decided to build an awesome LEGO model of Luigi.

LEGO Luigi is 70-cm-tall and is composed of over 80 layers of LEGO bricks. Believe me, it might look like child’s play, but building such LEGO models could definitely be called art. I bet Mario is eating his heart out right now…

The Zipper Pond of Taiwan

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

An artistically designed pond that looks like it could be zipped up at any time.

Designed by renowned Taiwanese sculptor Ju Chun, the Zipper Pond has become one of the most popular attractions at the Juming Museum, outside Taipei.  It does look absolutely amazing…I mean I’ve seen some beautiful ponds in my time, but a zipper pond? That’s special.

Artist Uses Old Toys to Create Amazing Sculptures

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

What do you do when your kids leave you with entire boxes of old toys they don’t like anymore? Well, you can donate them, throw them away or, do something creative with them.

Robert Bradford, a part-time psychotherapist from Cornwall, UK, opted for the third option when his two kids left him with a bunch of discarded toys. Luckily, one day, while he was staring at them, he came up with the wonderful idea of using them to create artistic sculptures.

His first artwork was an Alsatian dog that he doesn’t much like these days. But this was the experiment that started his career as an artist. That was four years ago. Since then, Robert Bradford has used thousands of toys to make truly incredible toy sculptures, like the soldier and angel you see in the photos below.

The artist uses up to 3,000 used toys for each of his toy sculptures and sells them for prices that go as high as 12,000 British pounds. That’s pretty expensive, but hey, it’s art, right?

Make sure you check Robert Bradford’s official site for more photos and info about his beautiful works of art.

Naked Obama and Unicorns

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

What does a naked Barack Obama have in common with a white unicorn? Apparently they’re best of friends.

At least that’s how Dan Lacey, known as The Painter of Pancakes,  portrays the president of the United States in a series of funny paintings. Some of his works show celebrities like John McCain and Sarah Palin and Obama with pancakes on their heads or covering their intimate areas. Lacey’s art-works are quite unique and, if you want, you can order any of them as an art poster. Just head over to Dan Lacey’s blog and check his portfolio.

The Human Printer

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Some people feel images printed by machines have no soul, so they decided to print them themselves, by hand.

That’s right, a group of people called The Human Printer, uses markers to emulate the printing process. This way you no longer have just a soulless copy of a photo, but a new, unique image designed by human hand. You have to hand it to these guys, they have a lot of patience. Members of The Human Printer use computer-created CMYK tones and Black&White to create their works of art.

Pennies Make Great Floor Tiles

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Some people are literally throwing money on the floor

Like the people that came up with the idea of paving the floor of the Standard Grill, in the Standard Hotel, New York, with thousands of pennies. It looks pretty cool, no doubt about it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if, one day, people got on their knees and tried to steal the coins. After all, this is an economic crisis and every penny counts.

Fish-Head Art Smells Fishy

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

After the photos I’ve seen so far, I can truly say there’s art in everything, even fish heads.

Anne-Catherine Becker-Echivard loves is a very original Berlin-based artist who uses fish heads to create regular works of art. It might be bizarre or funny, but it certainly isn’t easy. The artists uses negative-film cameras and photographs to create the photos you see below, and each of them can take up to three months to complete.

World’s Most Amazing Paper Craft Castle

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Wataru Itou, a talented art student from Tokyo, spent 4 years of his life building this trully incredible paper castle.

Named Umi no Ue no Oshiro (A Castle on the Ocean), this paper craft castle features electric lights and even a moving train, made of paper. It is set on exhibit at Uminohotaru, a service area between Tokyo and Chiba Prefecture and you can check it out with Google Earth.

Whether you’re a fan of paper craft or not, you must admit this paper castle is wonderful work of art. The Japanese like to take their time (see the LEGO Yamato Warship), but at least they deliver.

Painting with Fireworks

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Rosemarie Fiore is a very special artist who paints her masterpieces using fireworks.

Armed with gloves and a gas-mask, Rosemarie lights the fireworks and releases them on a smooth concrete surface, creating abstract paintings over 2 meters wide. Of course she wouldn’t be a true artist if she just watched them rolling around and just take credit for whatever traces they left.

Miss Fiore uses several techniques to control the fireworks, including covering them up with a bucket, to contain them, tying them to the end of  a pole and restraining them with rails. The different sizes and colors of the fireworks-circles are the result of different chemical compounds.

An Entire House Made From Cloth

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

The most amazing thing about this house is, you guessed it, that it’s made entirely out of cloth. You’ve got cloth walls, cloth kitchen-wear, cloth light switches, even a cloth toilet. The down-side is, you guessed again, nothing is usable. I mean, imagine using that cloth crapper…You’d have to burn that sucker down, and sew yourself a new one, not very practical.

Useless as it may be, this cloth house is pretty cool to look at, and that’s what art is all about…I think.

Swedish Church Watched-Over by LEGO Jesus

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

A church in Vasteras, Sweden has a 6-foot LEGO statue representing Jesus, watching over the parishioners.

The all-white LEGO Jesus took 30,000 LEGO bricks and roughly 18 months to complete. 40 volunteers worked on the statue, a replica of Bertel Thordvadsen’s “Resurrected Christ” sculpture. This amazing LEGO masterpiece was unveiled on Easter day and many of the children just had to touch it and make sure it’s real.

Although LEGO Jesus is all-white on the outside, many colored bricks are placed on the statue’s inside. Another incredible thing about this thing is that it is not hollow on the inside.

Knitted Replica of the Sistine Chapel

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Canadian needle-worker, Joanna Lopianowski-Roberts, spent eight years making what could be considered the most amazing replica of the Sistine Chapel paintings.

Inspired by a magazine cut-out of the Sistine Chapel, stuck-up on her bathroom wall, Joana spent eight years knitting Michelangelo’s masterpiece. She says starting was the hardest part, because she just didn’t know where to begin.

To make sure her knitted work-of-art follows every detail of the original painting, Joanna made close-ups of every section of the artwork and even bought some books from Rome. After a total of 3,572 hours of work, Joana Lopianowski-Roberts created a perfect 40 inches by 80 inches replica of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.

Her knitted masterpiece now sits safely in Joana’s home, but the artist says she would consider selling it for the right price. I’m sure she already has plenty of offers. The old-ladies who knitted their village managed to sell their creations, so finding a buyer for this should be a breeze.

Gundam Meets Hello Kitty

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

With the unveiling of the real-life RX78 Gundam in Tokyo, people have been going crazy over this Japanese icon, but some of them have really lost their minds.

Like the guy who made this girly, pink Gundam action-figure. All I can hope for is that a girl is behind this, maybe she was inspired by a trip to the Hello Kitty Castle…But if it’s a guy, the only thing I can say is WTF DUDE?!?

Life-Size Formula 1 Car Made Out of Styrofoam

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

From Michael Salter, the styrofoam master who also created the famous Styrobot, comes the styrofoam Formula 1 race-car.

Definitely the best styrofoam work of art I’ve ever seen, this race-car replica looks just like the real thing, without the engine. But hell, if I had these baby in my yard, I’d just place a speaker under it and just record the sound of a Formula 1 race-car.

The brilliant Michael Salter presented his styrofoam Formula 1 race-car and a few other styrofoam creations at the Portland John Ross Plaza Studio, so be sure to check them out if you’re in the neighborhood.

Kick-ass Log Computer Case

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I’m a big fan of crazy pc-case mods, and this log computer case has to be one of the most original I’ve ever seen.

Though it may not be the most environment-friendly pc case out there, the log case is still bad-ass. A crazy modder hollowed a log, made some slots for the pc components and thus created one of the weirdest computers I’ve ever seen.

The Log Computer is fully functional, although it does present some danger in case something overheats. But then again, who gives a damn about safety when you have something as cool as that in your home. It may not be as polished as the Wall-e pc case or the organic pc, but it’s definitely just as interesting.
