An Artist Spray-Paint Animals On Plastic Wrap In The Forest With Amazing Results

A few years ago Ches, a Russian street artist, discovered a form of graffiti called cellograffiti where artist paint on industrial strength plastic film fixed between two columns or trees. Intrigued by the medium, Ches started using it in his own work.

“Hi, my name is Evgeny Ches, I’m a graffiti and contemporary artist from Moscow, Russia. I call the technique that I use Cellograffiti, it’s basically painting on the plastic wrap instead of walls or other places. Here are some paintings that I did of the animals in the forest, I hope you’ll like them!,” he told Bored Panda.

Tokyo Lights Up At Night In New Glow-In-The-Dark Furoshiki Scarf

Featuring a special soft touch glow-in-the-dark paint, the design by Hannah Waldron captures the Japanese megalopolis’s towering architecture in a contemporary, slightly abstracted design. Mount Fuji and a star-spangled sky watch over the city on a background of cerulean blue, accented with red and white. Throughout the day, the glow-in-the-dark paint absorbs ambient light, and at night the city’s windows light up.

Incredible-Looking Bookshelf Created By A Couple From Australia

We all lived through a Pinterest phase at some point. No wonder – the page can easily get you hooked with all sorts of inspiring pictures, starting from design to fashion and photography. In some cases those pictures can’t be just pinned and forgotten, they need to be made in real life, and that was the case with the picture of a bookshelf Jessica and Sinclair Breen found online.

“When I showed [the picture to] Sinclair he almost had a heart attack,” Jessica told The Daily Mail. “We knew we had to try it.” That’s when the ball started rolling.

Jessica measured the wall space, took the inspiring picture with her, and went to the graphic arts teacher that worked at the same school as her. With his help they soon knew what size panels to order and after spending $900, they had everything they needed to start building.

They used an MDF wall to help arrange and attach the boxes to the wall. The construction started at 8 AM and finished only at midnight. “It was a huge process but it was so worth it,” exclaimed Jessica, who now hopes that this project will help her and her husband qualify for an Australian reality TV show (The Block) that focuses on house renovations.

Russian Artist Sinks To New Low By Making Animal Sculptures Out Of Manure

Mikhail Bopposov, who is farmer, gets his inspiration to create his poo sculptures from the Chinese calendar.

An artist has made a massive chicken out of frozen poo to celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Rooster. Mikhail Bopposov is the farmer behind the unusual creation in the village of Uolba in north-eastern Russia’s Sakha Republic.

His giant rooster measures 11.5 feet tall is nearly 14 feet long.

The sculptor claims that it is sturdy enough to support the weight of an adult man. Residents of the isolated village have been taking selfies of themselves with the new addition to their community.

This Japanese Artist Turns Childhood Toys Into Amazing Post-Apocalyptic Nightmares

There’s no feeling in the world quite like the one a little kid experiences when they wake up on Christmas morning to find Santa Claus has fulfilled their dreams and left them a bevy of amazing toys. However, we’re pretty sure only the strangest children would be thrilled if they unwrapped their presents to find their playthings had been transformed into nightmarish post-apocalyptic pieces of art. That’s too bad, because these creations are way more fascinating than normal action figures.

Japanese artist Y. Nakajima has somehow managed to take the unhealthy obsession of Toy Story‘s Sid for ruining his sister’s toys by turning them into disturbed demonic figures and made them into haunting works of art. Because Thomas the Tank Engine might be fun for kids, but he’s a lot more visually interesting when it looks like he mated with the giant spider from Wild, Wild West.

“The Belly Tank”: A Military Drop Tank Is Transformed Into An Αerodynamic Pommel Horse

Like many creative endeavors, the Belly Tank Project took shape over a bottle of red wine when product designer Axel Kleinschmidt explained to his friend, economist Hartmut H. Hölter, his fascination with belly tanks — an aviation term that describes expendable fuel tanks, also known as drop tanks, externally carried by combat aircraft— which he had found on sale on the internet, and his wish to cleanse such a war object from its military connotations and use it in a positive way. The Belly-Tank Project was thus launched aiming to transform a piece of warfare into a symbol of peace.

In 2013, this sculpture made its way into the Guinness World Records as the longest wooden sculpture. Chinese artist Zheng Chunhui transformed the trunk of a dead tree into a sculpture measuring 12 meters (40 feet) long, 3 meters (10 feet) high, and 2.5 meters (8 feet) wide.

The carving is based on the famous painting Along the River During the Qingming Festival (1085-1145), which portrays the daily life of people and the landscape of the city of Bianjing (today’s Kaifeng). The sculptor converted it all into wood to the finest detail. Check it out for yourselves:

“Women To Look Up To”: Stunning Christmas Tree Toppers Of Female Role Models

The Christmas Angel, Fairy, Tree Topper, by whatever name you call her, is a woman from a bygone era; a woman made of no more than plastic and glitter. No wonder, when the Victorians invented her!

The old dame was due a modern makeover, so we thought why not venerate the real women inspiring us in 2017. Women leading politics, culture, business, who are worthy of wings – the likes of Hillary Clinton, Serena Williams, Beyoncé, and a woman voted for by you.

3D sculpted and printed from the highest grade 3D plaster in a range of sizes to suit your tree. These hand finished Angelic Women know how to steal the show in your home, at the Christmas Party, or in grand public spaces.

Savannah Power, one of the founders speaking about what inspired the idea and how social
media has helped raise awareness for Women To Look Up To:

“Last Christmas, whilst decorating the house, my sister Chelsea, her boyfriend, and I got chatting about the frumpy, old Angel that barely hangs off the top of our annual Xmas tree. We just felt uninspired by her, like she was a bit of a forgotten figure, even as a Catholic family, we didn't really understand why it was such a tradition in the first place to have this outdated representation of a woman on top of your tree. So, we, with the help of Chelsea’s boyfriend Dom and our incredible design team Duzi Studio all came together and thought, there’s something in this, this can be a vehicle for change, to start a conversation. A Christmas campaign to educate and make a difference.”
