Really Cute, Disturbing Art - Luke Chueh

The Soundtrack



Luke Chueh's pieces are really cute in an eerily disturbing way - and that's exactly why they're so great. Featuring sad and/or tortured characters, Chueh's work stems from the intolerance he suffered as child growing up as a Chinese-American.



Luke was born in Philadelphia, but raised in Fresno. In 2003, Chueh moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in…

Super Mario Poker Chip Art (5 pics)

I've been playing with my poker chips all wrong! Cody van Tol of Canada must have come up with this idea when he had a large chip-stack playing Texas Hold 'Em. Recreating scenes from our favorite old school video game, he uses different colored poker chips to create Mario and his fiendish enemies. Totally inspires me to create something better than my boring ole'…

The Haunted Mansion - Nathan Schroder



With dark, elaborate schemes lit up by antique chandeliers and candlelight, Nathan Schroder whisks us away to a far and distant land. It's natural to feel a bit disturbed in his haunted mansion; a place that is home to wild animals that we cannot tell are real or fake, and mischievous characters that look to be straight out of murder mystery novels.

Now here's a cool concept. Why not add a new "green" element to soccer matches by putting a 10-meter high magnolia tree in the center? It would add a new element to the game as players could hide behind the tree for sneak attacks.



Chilean artist Sebastian Errazuriz planted the tree in the center of Chile’s National Stadium where dictator Pinochet…

One Pixel at a Time - Chris Dorosz (13 sculptures)



San Francisco-based artist Chris Dorosz must have a mad amount of patience. You can only imagine how many tedious hours it must take to create these intricate sculptures that are made up of tiny paint drops on a grid of acrylic rods. Using this style, his installations create a wicked 3D effect.

Psychedelic Dreamscapes - Allison Torneros (10 paintings)



Perhaps the most interesting thing about Allison Torneros' paintings is the thought process behind her pieces. Letting the paint do the 'talking', she throws around paint and other materials onto the canvas in an unpredictable manner and leaves it to dry overnight. Later, she begins drawing…
