Kay Sekimachi, a Japanese American artist, made some impressive bowls using tree leaves. She used Japanese paper, Krylon coating, and watercolor, to reinforce a structure based on the skeleton of leaves.

Annabel de Vetten’s cake certainly don’t look like the kind of dessert you’d like for a wedding or any kind of festive event, yet they are probably the most beautiful I’ve even seen. Too creepy for most, the cakes look incredibly realistic and always somewhat related to death and misery. At the Conjurer’s Kitchen, de […]
I’m a big fan of paper cutting art, and I tend to have a soft spot for collage art when it’s done right. You can imagine how happy to discover art that combines both techniques in complex artworks. To discover more pieces like the ones featured here, just head to Myriam Dion’s portfolio site and […]
Some say that the medium is the message. I don’t know if it’s entirely true, but this street art made with tape surely shows that the way the message is conveyed is very strongly influenced by the medium. An Australian street artist who goes by the name Buff uses tape to avoid any problem with […]
There are many artists who work with old books and do amazing things with it. Some cut them, other draw in the books, and there are many other ways to create art from book. So far I haven’t seen anything like Jacqueline Rush Lee’s art. She takes old books and turn them into amazing sculptures, […]

We all have been drawing with a blue ballpoint pen at some point in our life. It may be at school or on the phone, but blue ballpoint pens have been an escape for bored people to let their mind wander for decades already. French illustrator Kevin Lucbert is either very bored or very talented. I’d […]
Cinta Vidal Agullo is a Spanish artist and illustrator. She recently got a lot of exposure on art, illustration, and design blogs for her series of multi-dimensional artworks. The Barcelona-based artist clearly found some inspiration in M. C. Escher’s work for this project. It would be unfair to limit her to this, a quick look […]
Matt W. Moore has made himself a name as a graphic artist with his bold geometric prints. Inspired by type, Rorschach test or cities, his artworks are easily recognizable with his use of bright colors and intricated geometric compositions. He took his art to blankets, and in my opinion it works even better. His colorful […]
There is nothing about Tian Haisu’s paintings that reveals that they were created in such an unconventional way. The California-based artist enjoys painting this way, as the process involves the whole body and make her feel part of the artwork. You can see more of the artist’s work on her page at CCC Gallery page. […]
