7 Fish Lamps by Frank Gehry

If you’ve studied architecture then you’ve undoubtedly been inundated with the unique designs of Frank Gehry, but it’s not just buildings that this man of many talents has used to express his creative mind. His idea for these fish lamps came from a project for Formica over 25 years ago, quite by accident. When a sheet of ColorCore laminate was shattered, Gehry’s clever mind went into overdrive and he envisioned the broken shards of plastic as fish scales. Using a metal frame work he applied the ColorCore fragments to create beautiful, glowing fish lamps, which have traveled the world from museum to gallery. [Read more...]

Keng Lye 3D Fish Paintings 1

When I first saw these pieces, I assumed they were new work from Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori. His fantastic paintings, if you can call them that, have been making an arrested splash in the art world for a few years now. These examples, created by Singapore based Keng Lye, were inspired by his work and use the same incredible technique of painting with acrylic on increasingly deep layers of clear resin.

Aquatic Graffiti with Old World Charm

Friday 06.22.2012 , Posted by

On the streets and rivers of far western europe, incredible aquatically themed art is appearing on almost a weekly basis. Who is this mysterious artist? A Sheffield UK based guy going by the name Phlegm, we don’t know much about his back story, but we do know this: his art is exceedingly unique and beautiful. Creating huge, sprawling pieces which cover the sides of old decrepit buildings and the walls of brick lined river ways, his art is decidedly aquatic in nature. [Read more...]

Intricate Animals Made From Lost Hubcaps

Thursday 02.09.2012 , Posted by

If you drive at all, and I mean AT ALL, you’ve probably seen hundreds of hubcaps laying on the sides of roads and highways. These round disks serve no other purpose than providing a little clean aesthetics to low-cost wheels, and they seem to find any excuse to jump off their spinning counterparts. Because they’re of little value as a single disk, hubcaps are intrinsically worthless as soon as they stop their escapist roll under some roadside bush. [Read more...]
