The statue you can chew of Maurizio Savini

Maurizio Savini makes me think of Hansel & Gretel… This Italian sculptor does statues made of chewing gum… So you can almost eat or chew them… His statues are at actual size… That’s big to chew! He creates amazingly detailed and slightly weird scuptures… fun to see:

Vladimir Kush or a Journey in the Metaphorical Realism

I’m always fascinated by Artist who can make you see what we can’t see at first. I  like Vladimir Kush for that. This Russian Artist describes himself as a metaphorical realism. When youl look at his paints… look at twice to get it! there is a second level to see…

The Romantic Gothic of Anne-Julie Aubry

Maybe “Romantic Gothic” is invented, but I find that those words do match pretty well with the illustrations of the French artist Anne-Julie Aubry. Melancolia, Sadness, Tales, Princess, flowers, White & darkness, Dream… All of this is a strange mix… but it’s a very eyes catching work…! Look:

The out-of-this-world hyperrealist scuptures of Ron Mueck

Have you ever dream of meeting Giants or Lilliputians in their everyday life? The work of Ron Mueck makes your dream become true. This Autralian artist is doing amazing hyperrealist scuptures. He is playing with the proportion to make basic people becoming huge… or small. It can be scary… I find this awesome. Have a look here and don’t miss his next exibition if you have the chance to be around when it happens.

Alexa Meade or painting in 2D on 3D

What’s doing Alexa Maede can look quite normal at the first sight… but you need to look at twice and you’ll discover that her technic is quite unusual. That’s why it’s fantastic. She is painting directly on real people and the final results looks like a paint on a 2d surface. When you see the painted people in real situation, they look like kind of Zombie. Have a look:

Glennz is drawing more than T-shirts

This new-zelander illustrator gots an ironic different point of view on images we can have in memory. Every illustration Glennz is doing gots a very creative idea. That makes the difference. His illustration’s style stays very simple in color and shape, it’s the best way to make people focus on your idea. We can guess he is a big fan of Starwars, Mac Gyver, Lego, Transformers, Batman, Vampire, Robocop… Make sure you find the idea behind each illustration:

Laura Bifano paints pixels

That was a good surprise when I saw for the first time the work of Laura Bifano. She is a Canadian illustrator and did a serie of 10 illustrations where she paint animals in “pixel’s style”. Simply clever. She says she did this serie because of her love of Nature and video games. I love it too. Hope she will go one step higher if she’s on a new serie.

Imaginative univers of Jacek Yerka

I’ve always like people who push the limit to new territories. Yacek Yerka is one of them. He is considered as a Surealist painter. For me, he is more simply a talented imaginative painter. He creates crasy landscapes/views with multi dimentions, proportions & perspectives… that push your logic to a different level. As he is painting a lot of details… you almost think that what he is creating exist! Have a look and take your time to observe every cm2.

Charaben キャラ弁 the Japanese Food Art

What a creative way to make your lunch box (Bentō べんとう) looks much more fun! This Japanese Food Art is to eat for real. Bentō (べんとう) is the name given to the simple  prêt-a-manger takeout portion. When the Bento is presented in a cute way (a cartoon, icons…) they call it Charaben (キャラ弁, kyaraben).   Was it invented to make the kids eat their lunch box much more easier? I guess so. Actually, some people spend so much time and energy to make those lunch boxes look so appealing that you want to keep them and not eat! Have a look at those examples and try to recognize the different cartoons.
