A Gigantic 3D-Printed Zoetrope Based on Ruben’s Gruesome Painting, ‘Massacre of the Innocents’

British artist Mat Collishaw (previously) has built a huge 3D-printed zeotrope called All Things Fall. The highly detailed circular sculpture is populated by 350 different figures, environmental elements and architectural pieces which animate when the carousel is spun in front of a synchronised strobe light. In motion, a shockingly grisly scene is revealed.

Artist Uses Scientific Methods to Capture Paint in Motion

Swiss artist Fabian Oefner uses paint to show us the world—in the most unconventional ways. He creates colorful psychadelics pieces using scientific methods in an effort to shed light on the wonderful natural world. Utilizing high-speed photography, Oefner captures vibrant paints as they are distorted by forces of nature, such as wind, sound, magnetism, and centripetal forces.

Jim Bachor Fills the World’s Potholes with Very Sweet Mosaics

We’ve seen attention brought to potholes by filing them with surprises like an ice bucket of beer or a wild Barbie pool party – but what about actually fixing the problem? Chicago artist Jim Bachor has been doing that in a highly unusual and clever way, filling the tire-popping road craters with beautiful and surprising mosaics made from glass and marble. See? Create art, save the world (or at least a few tires).

17 Year Old Artist Turns Mundane Objects Into Playful Interactive Illustrations

Things aren’t always what they seem! Especially not in the creative mind of 17 year old Kristián Mensa. This young artist from the Czech Republic brings playful energy to typically mundane objects. He has been seeing the world from this point of view since he was a little kid and now he brings the thoughts to life with interactive illustrations. He shares his musings on Instagram and invites you to see the ordinary in the happy, fun world of his imagination.

Artist Captures Panoramic City Scenes on His Coffee Cup

While most of Tokyo is moving quickly in the hustle and bustle of the work flow, illustrator Adrian Hogan is slowing down and taking it all in. In this amusing series of doodles, he chose a panoramic segment of the streets and sidewalks to re-create. But rather than using paper, he illustrated the images onto his coffee cup. He presents the finished pieces by slowly twirling the cup in Instagram videos among the backgrounds that inspired each scene. You can see all of the attention Hogan paid to minor details and how perfectly he replicates each city perspective.

Wonderfully Illustrative Fine-Line Tattoos by Istanbul’s Bicem Sinik

Istanbul-based tattoo artist Bicen Sinik has an impressive talent for creating intricate, fine-line illustrations on skin. Like the Los Angeles-based Dr. Woo (who we featured just last week), she has a knack for creating high-contrast linear and stippled pieces with a minimal amount of shading.

Makeup Artists Turn Eyelids Into Eyeballs To Make Humans Look Like Dolls

Women are contantly bombarded with altered images and given unrealistic toys in their younger years, that make them think that their eyes should be larger or their noses should be smaller. Some people go under the knife to achieve these impossible standards and turn themselves into a walking Barbie Doll and some do it less permanently with makeup. Photographer Laurie Simmons wanted to understand the “Doll Girls” community the best way she knows how- through the lens of her camera. In her latest series, “How We See”, Simmons captures models who have had their eyelids painted to look like big doll eyes. The images are quite creepy, much like the messages women are given that beauty is the most important thing to strive for.

The World’s First Throw-and-Shoot Video Camera is All I Ever Wanted

Meet Lily, the world’s first throw-and-shoot camera. This highly innovative drone is a new way we take video and stills of our activities. Just throw it up in the air, and it tracks you in cinematic video, no matter if you’re riding a wave, kayaking down raging rapids or just off on a peaceful walk with the kids. This device is going to change the way we take selfies, and by that, I mean they’ll actually be good.

This Picasso Just Became the Most Expensive Painting Ever Sold

The most expensive painting in the world is no longer Francis Bacon’s Three Studies of Lucian Freud, which Christie’s sold for $142.4 million in 2013. An anonymous buyer has just paid an astounding $179.36 million for Pablo Picasso’s 1955 painting Les femmes d’Alger (Version “O”), putting it in top position in the world of very expensive artworks. The painting last sold in 1997 for a paltry $31.9 million.

You’ve Seen Body Painting Before. But Has It Moved?

The distinctive chameleon is known for its ability to change colors, but the lizard featured here is even more changeable than that – this one can become human.

Bodypainting legend Johannes Stötter (previously) has created an incredible moving illusion, using two dextrous models laying atop each other to create the form of a chameleon. Then, in coordinated movements, they slowly walk along a branch – or so it seems.
