Picasso - Beyonce

Kanye meets Monet in this mashup series by artists Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano. For their Fly Art Tumblr page, the duo create clever images pairing popular hip hop lyrics with famous paintings.

Clive Cooper Watermelon carvings 1

There’s nothing quite like eating a juicy watermelon on a hot summer day (and one slice is never enough), but artist Clive Cooper is doing far more than savoring the flavor. He’s carving impressive creatures and characters into the sizable green and pink melons – from creepy goblins and ferocious dinosaurs, to the bears native to his home in Vancouver, BC.

The Supper

If you gave these images just a passing glance, it would be easy to think they were painted by a Dutch master of the Golden Age… but with a little more time, modern details start to emerge. Photographer Zdenek Sindelar is channeling the spirit of old masters, creating a series of still lifes and portraits that exude the moody aesthetic of the past while bringing it gracefully into the future.

Thunderstorms are fun to watch, but not necessarily the safest thing to do. Designer Richard Clarkson takes all of the awesomeness of storm watching without the danger with his latest creation: an interactive cloud for the home. You can get the nightlight version which only lights up or splurge for the interactive RC version that uses motion sensors to simulate the thunderstorm’s light and sound. Within each RC cloud is a lamp and bluetooth compatible speaker system. When paired with music, the cloud “lightnings” to the beat of each song. [Read more...]

Happy 4th of July! American Flags from 1767 to the Present

P-Flags

Happy 4th of July America! In a celebratory visual fashion we think you’ll enjoy this fascinating look at the history of the old Stars and Stripes through history… in fact, back to before it was even the Stars and Stripes at all.

This patriotic print from Pop Chart Labs traces the flag through 48 versions, beginning with the star-less “Rebellious Stripes” of 1767 and finishing with the 50-star flag we’ve flown since 1960 (too bad for people who bought the 49-star version of 1959). You’ll definitely want to check out the zoomable view of this poster here. [Read more...]

Personal Mythologies Explore the Banal & Bizarre

Thursday 07.03.2014 , Posted by
Ben Smith Paintings 1

Ben Smith’s paintings take the ordinary, even the banal, and transforms it into something curious and unique. Many of his works are portraits, but far from recording reality, they touch on the surreal by adding multiples of the subject, other strangely placed characters, or even conjoined creatures that are obliquely interacted with. In short, his subjects are experiencing something pretty far out. [Read more...]

River Tables Look Like the World From Above

Greg Klassen River Tables 1

Greg Klassen’s hand-crafted tables have rivers flowing through them. Inspired by the natural beauty of his home in the Pacific Northwest and the tall trees that grow there, he uses the wood’s innately sinuous form to trace the path of water-like glass that cuts a path through the table’s center. His tastefully balanced design choices create furniture with a blend of free spirited organic form and geometric perfection. [Read more...]
