Emil Nystrom Impossible Daughter Portraits 6

Kids can be both a blessing and a burden… and when it comes to these impossible images, those facts are taken to the extreme. Up and coming photographer Emil Nystrom has only been working in the field for about a year… but you wouldn’t know it from these brilliant Photoshopped compositions featuring his lovely baby daughter. On the helpful side, we see her climbing under the hood to fix the car and lending a hand painting the walls of the house. Probably less helpful, she also seems to love doing cannon balls into the bathtub and hitching rides behind airplanes. Trouble! [Read more...]

Artists from around the world have come to create the 23rd ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden. Organized by the ICEHOTEL art & design group, the only building material used is 1,000 tons of pure ice and 30,000 cubic meters of snow extrapolated from the frozen water of a river. In addition there was some support from thin metal frames that helped with some of the weight of the ice. While it is a place for guests to come, wine, dine and stay, it also serves as a large scale art exhibition. [Read more...]

What To Do On Your Lunch Hour? Have a Dance Party!

Tuesday 04.03.2012 , Posted by

People go to work, bring their lunches with them or eat out, and after a while it becomes… well, normal. It can be easy to get into the routine of work, eat, work, go home and it feels like the days weren’t as exciting as you wish they would be.

Meet LunchBeat, a lunch hour dance party that started a little over a year ago in Sweden. With the objective to re-energize oneself and brighten up the routine workday, a group of Swedes organized the first dance party in an underground parking lot during their one hour lunch break. The rules? If you go, you have to dance. What’s the point in going if you’re not going to shake it? [Read more...]

Mattias Adolfsson is a freelance illustrator living in Sigtuna, just outside of Stockholm, Sweden. When you first happen upon his phenomenal illustrations your eyeballs practically explode with wonderment and excitement — everything else of his is awesome too. This astoundingly detailed cockpit illustration reminds us of what it was like to be a kid, playing with our Star Wars action figures while pretending to know what it’s like to man the controls of the Millennium Falcon and have a Wookie as our best friend.

The Stockholm Subway Takes Art Underground

Saturday 02.12.2011 , Posted by


Considered one of the most beautiful metro’s in Europe, the Stockholm subway system is filled with eye popping art and bright colors… a perfect cure for the proverbial Stockholm Syndrome. Each stop presents riders with a different visual feast as if they have been transported to a new magical underworld.

The metro has 100 stations of which 47 are underground. Construction of the large system began in 1941 with the last station opening in 1994. Some of the cavernous interiors where left with crude bedrock exposed, others have been tiled or even embedded with Romanesque statues. If you’ve ever visited this colorful underground land, the envious crew here at Visual News would love to hear about it!

Tuesday 01.25.2011 , Posted by


These two stop motion videos are so incredibly clever. Using paper isn’t too unusual, but tearing off pieces of the paper and then running the film backwards definataly got our attention. The effect makes objects take shape as if by magic, each torn piece appearing to glue itself back together to create a seamless object once again.
