Among the new technologies artists use to experiment with, 3D printing is in my opinion the most interesting. If you can take the experiments one step further than just playing with consumer 3D printers, it becomes amazing for the artist. At the time of writing this article, the DX | design exchange in Toronto is holding […]
Filipino artist June Digan has great talent for at least two artistic skills: lettering and watercolor painting. She combines the two by creating spectacular paintings of quotes, with gorgeous lettering of course. She mixes typographic styles with wonderful taste, using subtle color schemes that can only be made with watercolor. Most of her work is […]
Many sand castle builders are pretty amazing artists when it comes to patience and skills. On the other hand, sand castles are too often a bit kitschy for my taste. Artist Calvin Seibert gives an architectural twist to his sand castles. His monumental castles would look great as a big city’s opera house or a villain’s […]
The best part about watercolor paintings is the unpredictable effects you will get from it. The paint solves into subtle shades and creates beautiful edges that are hard to control. Serbian artist Endre Penovac is a true master of watercolor who can create cat paintings with just a few brush strokes. You can see all […]
When spilling coffee, most people clean it up right away with an occasional curse word. Stefan Kuhnigk, an artist from Germany, prefers to let it dry for a few hours, so he can create some little illustrated monsters with the spills.

When in design school, I remember one teacher explaining us that trying to imitate the style of famous designers or artists as an exercise was one of the best ways to progress. In fact, when doint this, you have to try to put yourself in the person’s shoes and learn how to thing like that […]
When I was a kid, we would travel to Serbia every summer to meet with the family there. One of the highlights for me was to see my great-aunts who would check out the bottom of my mother’s coffee cup and predict the future. I suspect Giulia Bernardelli, who shares amazing art made with spilled […]
Turkish artist Hasan Kale, previously featured on Designer Daily for his tiny paintings of Istanbul, is back with even more amazing and smaller artworks. At a size of a fingernail, or even smaller, the artist re-creates some famous paintings or creates his own. Kale would probably have been an excellent surgeous, when you see the […]
Korean artist Beomsik Won likes to play with architecture. He likes to imagine impossible building structures in what he calls Archisculpture. Thanks to digital manipulations, architectural structures get to enter in a new dimension and mess with our minds.

The new shapes given to the leaves combined with the fragile and natural textures make it look just perfect. If you’ve ever try to fold an old leaf or just try to do anything with it, you […]
We already featured Guy Laramée on Designer Daily, and we could probably feature him every day. The artist recently published a new gorgeous series of carved books on the theme of birds and their natural habitat. The big books were carved into sculptures that look like the natural habitat of birds, with nice paintings of […]
There has been some talk recently about whether the golden ratio was really relevant or not. In April, Fast co.design published a popular article that claimed that the golden ratio was one of the top design myths. I honestly have no clear idea about the golden ratio, but I think it can be a good […]
On his website, Bertrand Flachot labels himself a drawer and a photographer. Unlike most of the people who practice these two crafts, the French artist combines the two in impressive artworks that often confuse the viewers. Based in Paris, Flachot likes to work in large formats with photos, installations, or line-based drawings.
