Artists Around The World React To H&M’s Controversial Ad

The famous clothing brand H&M has recently published an ad for its new hoodie that reads “Coolest monkey in the jungle.” Sounds innocent, but the reason behind all the anger it caused was a black boy modelling for that ad, which was not well received all around the world.

Some people claimed that while the ad was probably an oversight, it was also quite deaf and insensitive. In South Africa it even resulted in burning, trashing and stealing clothes from H&M’s stores. Artists around the world, however, reacted in a way they know best – they turned the offensive hoodie into something positive by creating beautiful works of art.

Artist Created These Funny Comics After The Sun Blocked His Beautiful Sunset

Nixon Siow is a Malaysian webcomic artist. His comic reflects Malaysia’s true stories and modern culture.

“It all started when I went for a long-awaited vacation by the beach. When sunset came, I looked towards the horizon and a “wild cloud” drifted across the sky, successfully blocking my view. This incident, although annoying, has inspired me to create a comic series, that is now known as ‘Hey Cloud!’,” Nixon Siow told Bored Panda.

The Best Signs From The 2018 Women’s March

A year on from Donald Trump’s inauguration women have taken to the streets once again, as a follow up to last year’s Women’s March. Apparently this movement here to stay – thousands of women turned out to voice their displeasure with the current administration in Washington D.C. and just like last year, they have made some hilariously creative and clever signs.

“Shadow Of The Colossus”: The Epic Fantasy Artworks By Ömer Tunç

Ömer Tunç is a freelance artist and illustrator from Izmir, Turkey, and almost a complete mystery to me. From his Deviant profile, I learned that his favorite movie is The Big Lebowski, that he loves Game of Thrones, and that his favorite book is The Lord of the Rings. Nothing about his art or the projects he’s working on currently.

So, we have only his art and the subjects he paints and that will have to do for purposes of this post. I did discover he won the 2015 GIO Award for Best Illustrator of the Year, for a painting based on The Lord of the Rings.

Ömer is immensely talented. The tone and atmosphere captured in his paintings enthrall you. You have mystery and darkness, and also something else, something I can’t quite put my finger on. Almost like energy teeming below the surface. Or maybe it’s just the composition. Ömer is one of those artists who creates the illusion of intricate detail through his use of texture and composition.

Norwegian Artist Nikolai Lockertsen Creates Amazing Concept Art By Using iPad As A Canvas

I love the format and flexibility the iPad offers and the pro level artwork you can create in Procreate,” he said.

Here’s What’s Happening Outside Of Famous Music Album Covers

Russian artist Igor Lipchanskiy has created a hilarious series of photos that show what’s really happening outside of the frames of iconic album covers:

“I live in cold Russia. In between dismantling of an AK-47 assault rifle and training of the home bear, I like to listen to music and when I peer into the cover of the album I find a place for myself there.”
