Artist Julie Gonce Creates Stunning Organic Glass Sculptures

French artist Julie Gonce combines natural elements with sculpted glass forms to create unique pieces.

Gonce was raised around artists who ignited her creativity and influenced her to create unique work.

“I grew up surrounded by artisans and artists, and I quickly discovered that I wanted a hands-on profession,” Gonce tells Colossal. “I chose glass by chance, but when I did a glassblowing training course I was immediately drawn to it.”

Taiwanese Artist Lives Large Dreams In Miniature Models

A Taiwanese artist, Hank Cheng has been creating remarkably realistic miniature models influenced by his life, gaining popularity on social media.

Cheng’s first miniature model, created over three years ago, was based on a restaurant he used to visit while studying in Japan. Cheng, an interior designer by profession, is since trying to push his boundaries by creating tinier models. He has participated in several international competitions with his creations but he feels the most important reward for him is the process of making and appreciating his artworks.

“Insider Outsider”: Artist Saks Afridi Creates Fantastic Traditional Hand-Made Rugs Covered With UFO Patterns

Saks Afridi is an art-based Creative Director and multi-disciplinary artist with 17 years of both US and global experience. He’s the proud recipient of 2 Gold Cannes Lions, 3 D&AD, 2 One Show pencils and a UN award for peace and understanding, in 2015.

“Pakistan, the country of my birth is a somewhat unfamiliar place to me today. It has changed so much, I sometimes feel like an alien there. The difference in ideology is so vast, it’s easy to feel like an outsider. Meanwhile in my adopted home of New York City, I feel completely at home, but at times, I’m an alien here too. And so like many others I maintain the status of a temporary yet permanent, Insider Outsider. And sometimes vice versa.

I was born in Peshawar, Pakistan and originate from a village nearby called Babri Banda. This is the heartland of the Pashtun people. Over the years, the culture in the region has shifted drastically. Like in Iran, we all grew up hearing stories of Pakistan’s happier, more open-minded times. And while Pakistan was never supremely moderate, the radicalization of our age refuses to cease. Personally, while I speak Urdu and Pashto, and visit Pakistan often, I still feel like an alien sometimes. Truth is, people living there feel like aliens. In fact, I find it’s a universal feeling. In my work, the UFO represents the outsider. The patterns surrounding it represents the insider. I find the combination of Eastern traditional craftsmanship and Western contemporary sensibilities, has led me to this work and a category I refer to as Sub- Continental Futurism.”

The Japanese Mini Truck Garden Contest Is A Whole New Genre In Landscaping

The Kei Truck, or kei-tora for short, is a tiny but practical vehicle that originated in Japan. Although these days it’s widely used throughout Asia and other parts of the world, in Japan you’ll often see them used in the construction and agriculture industries as they can maneuver through small side streets and easily park. And in a more recent turn of events, apparently they’re also used as a canvas for gardening contests.

The Kei Truck Garden Contest is an annual event sponsored by the Japan Federation of Landscape Contractors. Numerous landscaping contractors from around Japan participate by arriving on site with their mini trucks and then spending several hours transforming the cargo bed into a garden

Artist Leaves His Paintings For People To Find After Getting Rejected By Art Galleries

My Dog Sighs, a talented street artist from England, made his first drawing when he was 7 years old. Since then everyone knew him as a child who can draw, and this was enough to set him on a journey to become an artist. Later, he left his job at a primary school where he worked as a teacher, decided to become a professional and started painting everything he thought the galleries would like.

But the reality was not that easy – after visiting every gallery within a 200 mile radius and receiving “no” from all of them, he lost his dream for a while. Until one day Banksy‘s stencilled Rat, sprayed on a wall in London, inspired him to try this again, but with a different approach. This is when he started to drop his paintings in the streets for someone to find, and not giving up led him to becoming one of the most respected street artists in the UK.

Since the canvases aren‘t that cheap, My Dog Sighs started using old, already useless objects to create his art. He then painted an old can, turning it into something worth to find, and it all began. It was a reflection of his own journey – lost, then found, given a new lease of life and let go travel its own journey.
