As human houses have gotten more modern and sleek, why is that most birdhouses are still so old fashioned? This bird feeder in Norway defies the traditional style, as it was modeled to look like a hip cafe. Photographer Magne Klann and model maker Lars Autrtade combined forces to create this project which they call Piipshow, featuring a constant live stream of a birdie bar that occasionally gets robbed by some handsome squirrels. It’s hard to imagine anything cuter than the scenes in this avian restaurant. [Read more...]

1 Noe Pauporte

Emerging from swirls and splatters, and vibrantly colored geometric patterns, come realistic portraits. Born in 1985, Noé Pauporté has been drawing since he could hold a pencil, but he didn’t hone his overlapping character graffiti on canvas until 1998. The self-taught artist studied at the foundation for Fine Art in Brussels paints both realistic and imaginary characters using varying techniques such as acrylic, ink, bomb, Posca, pencil, and oil paint. He focuses mostly on living creatures in his artworks, humans especially. He also composes electronic music under the name KhromaSoma. [Read more...]

Gerald Bear Unconventional Heroes 1

If Marty McFly tried speeding back to the future in an old Fiat 500 instead of a DeLorean, would he even make it to 88.8 miles per hour? It’s questionable. Graphic Designer/Illustrator Gerald Bear’s great new series, Unconventional Heroes, imagines a world where the cars in our favorite cult films and television are a lot less super… and far, far smaller.

Hiki Komori photographs 9

Just a glance at Hiki Komori’s exquisite double exposure portraits, and I can’t help but wonder what is going on inside each subject’s mind. Komori’s images seamlessly merge the naked branches of trees in winter or the stark iron architecture of industrial sites into the faces of each individual. The resulting images have a somber, introspective appearance, as if the thoughts of each person have been made visible. [Read more...]

If the Movie ‘Labyrinth’ had an Affair with M.C. Escher, This Would be the Baby

Mathew Borrett Rooms 1

Artist Mathew Borrett spent his childhood building forts out of hay in an ancient barn, but when his allergies got the best of him, he’d go inside to build elaborate things out of Lego. When he built something he especially liked, he’d draw instructions on graph paper detailing how to build it again. That sounds about right for the child that would later draw these magnificently complex labyrinths of rooms. [Read more...]
