    Trash Riot: Artist Specializes in SciFi Collages (Pics)

    It’s Friday, which means you’re probably itching to get away from work. But until you’re able to escape the office, the unique scifi collages of the artist known as Trash Riot may be just what the doctor ordered for your workplace frame of mind. Trash Riot’s work is spacey but also cut-up-catalog-y, if I can use […]

    If someone walked up to you and said they knew a guy who could roll blunts like works of art, you probably wouldn’t take this person literally – you’d be safe in assuming they just mean the blunts are especially tight or round or sleek or whatever. But there’s a user on Instagram who takes […]

    Print Wikipedia: Art Exhibition Features Printed Volumes of Wikipedia

    One of the saddest (at least to me) losses from the last century is the extinction of print encyclopedias. And even though it would probably take a major calamity on a societal level for them to make a widescale comeback, artist Michael Mandiberg is doing his part with Print Wikipedia, an artistic exhibition that involves […]

    Artist Bruce Shapiro has taken a process normally reserved for industrial purposes and used it to make a work of art.

    People have debated for centuries what separates artists from regular people. I don’t have an answer, but it might have something to do with the impulse to do something other than throw away those cardboard beverage sleeves from Starbucks – and turn them into art instead. That’s the premise of Sleevebucks, a new art form from […]

    “In The Upside Down World” Show Animals on Top of the Food Chain (Pics)

    If you think about it, animals have it pretty rough in this world. They’re always getting hunted, poached, and chased out of their homes by humans, sometimes for food but other times just for fun. Of course, maybe you’ve actively avoided thinking about it, in which case the cartoons recently posted online under the heading […]

    You might remember FILFURY as the artist who converted Nike Air Max sneakers into guns for an art project. And he’s back again, but it’s not as specific as turning Air Max into guns – instead, he’s digitally manipulating sneakers of all kinds into many different shapes and forms. FILFURY, whose real name is Phil Robson, […]

    You might remember being a kid, sitting in a classroom and being very, very bored. You probably even played with a pencil or two in your time, but it’s pretty much guaranteed that you didn’t come close to artist Salavat Fidai in the “playing with pencils” arena. That’s because Salavat Fidai’s specialty is tiny sculptures made […]
