Telmo Miel Kiddie Art Series 1

If you’ve got a young kid, your refrigerator is probably covered with drawings of bears, butterflies, cars and princesses. Let’s face it though: while the little rascals are filled with imagination, their creations aren’t exactly life-like. I mean, when was the last time you saw a whale with a kinked tail? Dutch muralist/painter duo Telmo Miel (Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann) have recreated a series of drawings by kid’s, retaining their youthfully drawn shape while applying an adult artist’s level of detail. The results are truly weird and sometimes creepy. [Read more...]

Patrice Laternec Head Walk 1

French photographer and art director Patrice Letarnec takes to the streets of Paris, flipping the bodies of each subject, but bizarrely, not the clothes. Here in a mind-bending fashion, legs become arms and hands become feet – and the head is altogether missing. Each impressive handstand takes place in a city devoid of other people, creating a surreal scene that makes one wonder how the rest of the populous appears. [Read more...]

Monday 11.04.2013 , Posted by

Just the two of us, Klaus Pichler, 2013

“Who hasn’t had the desire just to be someone else for a while?” That’s the question Austrian photographer Klaus Pichler is asking with his newest photo series, Just the Two of Us. The collection of photographs explores the way people use costumes to create alter egos or a second skin – which can then be used to modify their behavior. The best part? He’s been tracking down owners of elaborate costumes and photographing them in their own homes. Thus, both the subject and their home becomes the star of this work – at once capturing wildly creative costumes and also the often mundane location where their owners live. [Read more...]

Herbert Baglione shadows 2

Just when you thought that an abandoned psychiatric hospital couldn’t get any creepier, Brazilian street artist Herbert Baglione comes along to give us the ultimate waking nightmare. Part of his ongoing 1000 Shadows project, he’s been painting black silhouettes on the weathered walls, floors and ceilings of long deserted buildings in São Paulo and Paris… but by far the creepiest location to date is this abandoned hospital in Parma, Italy.

Four-Eyed Cats are Creepy… Like Real Cats

Casey Weldon 4 Eyed Cats 3

Without even trying, cats can be really creepy at times. Well actually, maybe they are trying. They run maniacally around the house for seemingly no reason; they hide in boxes for us to find them; and most disconcertingly, they stare at us with those big, glowing, curious eyes. Artist Casey Weldon knows this so he’s lately been creating cat paintings with double the creepiness – cats with four eyes. [Read more...]

Bizarre Portraits from a Patterned Dream

If you combined the work of Salvador Dali with those Magic Eye books, you might have something close to the paintings of Canadian artist Sascha Braunig. Her works embody the unique duality of at once being highly beautiful and highly disturbing. They aren’t the type of things you want to see in your next dream or drug trip. [Read more...]

What remains of these often decades-old stuffed animals is just a rough and often creepy vision of their former cuddly selves.
