Just how charming is this? A delightful new stop-motion video has just been released called The Joy of Books that brings books to beautiful life. It's by the same creative couple who showed us how they "organized" their bookcase.
This new video answers that age old question, "What happens inside a bookstore late…Continue
I came across Korean artist Kimsooja's installation called Lotus: Zone of Zero and was immediately struck by its beauty. Composed of approximately 2,000 lotus flower-shaped paper lanterns, it hung back in 2008 at the Rotunda of the Raverstein Gallery in Brussels. First exhibited at the Palais Rameau in Lille, France back in 2003, the installation was brought to life again to ask its…
Think you're looking at digital artwork created in Photoshop or Illustrator? Think again. What you're actually looking at are drops of cooking oil floating in a bowl filled with water. The concentric circles are sherbet colored because of (who would have guessed it?) construction paper.
Two years ago, Michael Krutzenbichler came across…Continue

Of course, let's start it all off with some sick street art (as seen above). Now…
As true fans of the miniature movement, we were happy to come across these beautifully executed works by Audrey Heller. Working under a strict scale of 1:87, she creates these fantastical worlds that make you want to sit back and stare. I particularly love how she incorporates common, everyday items like old books, tea cups and wine…Continue

Melbourne-based Jeremy Blincoe has just released a new strikingly beautiful and stunningly surreal series called Ephemeral Memory that focuses on Indigenous Australians. About 18 month ago, while he was boxing at the Melbourne Aboriginal Youth and Recreation Centre, he met and established friendships with this often forgotten group of people. "Conversation led to further…

I first came across British artist Christopher Bucklow's beautiful work while at Pulse Miami this past December. Danziger Gallery in New York exhibited one of his pieces that seemed to be glowing. Delving more deeply into it, I found out that Bucklow is able to create these radiant artworks, under the series name Guests, by a unique multi-step process that the…Continue
Artist David Kracov was commissioned to create an award to be given in honor of, and named for, the late director of Chabad's Children of Chernobyl.
Called the "Book Of Life," it was inspired by the extraordinary life of Rabbi Yossi Raichik, a man who saved thousands of children's lives from the devastating effects of the Chernobyl disaster. The metal sculpture has pages…Continue

Using only natural materials gathered near where his sculptures are made, artist Richard Shilling creates some of the loveliest land art we've ever seen. Due to the uncontrollable weather, Shilling sometimes only has a few minutes to capture his creations before they're swept away by the wind. It's within this short period of time…Continue

According to Legoland Florida Master Builder Jason Miller, two of the biggest construction projects at the park were a brontosaurus…Continue

Somewhat frightening but incredibly cool is this new airbrush painting by artist Chris Ellman. Called Two Faces, it's a diptych or two works that, side by side, form one single artistic statement. Taking him three months to complete, this 100% airbrush on canvas is filled with hundreds of characters living in a strange and detailed world. Surreal cities come alive in a woman and…

Out of all of the projects we've posted on this year, there are ten that stood out for the creators' originality and their ability to inspire us to no end. These made us stand back in awe, almost in disbelief that someone could not only think of such a creative idea but execute on it so flawlessly. While in some cases it was a collaborative effort involving many…Continue
