The Incredible Street Art of DALeast (15 Photos)

DALeast (featured previously) was born in 1984 in Wuhan, China and is currently based in Cape Town, South Africa with his wife, Faith47, who is also a prominent artist. After studying sculpture at the Institute of Fine Arts, DALeast dropped out after four years and began making art in public spaces in 2004.

His murals can be found in cities around the world including the U.S., Switzerland, Namibia, France, Israel, Australia and China. The artist, who also does more traditional paintings on canvas, has had several solo exhibitions where his works have all sold out. To learn more, you can read a great interview with the artist by Arrested Motion here.

A SEE-THROUGH STEEL CHURCH BY GIJS VAN VAERENBERGH

Standard

Located in Borgloon, Belgium, ‘Reading Between The Lines’ is a nearly transparent steel church designed by Belgian architect studio Gijs Van Vaerenbergh. The 10-meter high structure consists of 100 evenly spaced steel layers stacked in the form of a steeple and seems to dissolve into the landscape when viewed at certain angles. Created as a public art piece, the church is part of a project that aims to spark conversations on how to use the increasing number of abandoned church buildings in the Flemish region.

Extraordinary Stunning Paintings Of A Girl With Her Dog by Jeong Woojae

 Korea based artist Jeong Woojae was born in 1983. He completed his BA in Fine Art at Chugye University and MA in Fine Art from Hong-Ik University. In these paintings, Jeong showing the strong bond of a girl with her dog. At first look, the objects might seems straight forward like a girl is having fun with her dog, but the works go beyond mere realism. Jeong is keen to shatter with the playful reversal in the size of his figures. The dog seems beautifully bigger than the girl as you will see in his remarkable work for the delicacy of his colors and the mastery of his brushstrokes.

Stunning Home Embedded in Cliff Overlooking the Aegean Sea

Stunning Home Embedded in Cliff Overlooking the Aegean Sea

Set flush against a cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea is Casa Brutale, a home concept that’ll literally have you living life on the edge. The project was created by OPA (Open Platform for Architecture), and its sleek, modern design conceals nearly the entire unit within rock. As a result, there’s relatively little impact to the surrounding environment.

Few areas of Casa Brutale are visible from the outside, two of which are its surface swimming pool and a set of steps. A short descent brings you into the main living space, which has an enormous glass facade and provides unforgettable views throughout the entire residence—even from bed. To avoid detracting from the natural beauty of the scenic environment, decor is minimal and features cool concrete surfaces offset by gorgeous aged wood.

By Day Its a Unique Sculpture While At Night It Comes Alive

Meet Przemek Krawczynski from Lodz, Poland. He started creating gourd lamps back in 2009 when he discovered the gourd fruit, the first lamp he ever made was for his own room and from that point on it became his passion. Przemek was a building engineering student and worked in an architectural studio, but in 2010 he decided to quit school and job and devote all of his time to his passion!

Floor lamp I - Florescence - D1 (1)

Most of his lamps are made out of the raw material called calabashes that can be found in Senegal, Africa. Przemek is a self-taught artist and he aims for constant progress in his skills and creativity and he says ” Self-fulfillment and satisfaction from my work are more important for me than the number of lamps I can create within a certain time span ” Creating one lamp can take between 2 -4 months and in some lamps each hole has been designed and marked before the work actually started. Every lamp is unique, you won’t find two that are the same, the artist never repeats his patterns on his lamps and he draws his inspiration from geometry, complex and complicated patterns.

Floor lamp I - Florescence - D2 (1)

” By day my lamp is a unique sculpture while at night it comes alive by the light seeping through intricate carved wood and passing through thousands of holes. Flowing shadow fills the space and casts the patterns on the surrounding walls, making it possible to enjoy the light not only in just pragmatic terms” Please visit these social links for more info and work: Website | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Tumblr

Using nothing but wire, sculptor Clive Madison creates tangled trees that grow from wooden bases into dense clusters of leaves and branches. Each piece is made by hand without glue or solder, using single strands of wire that start at the base and terminate at the top. You can see many more pieces on his website, and several are available through Lee Champman Gallery. (via Ghost in the Machine)

Artist Intricately Hand-Carves Photorealistic Portraits out of Paper

Standard

 

Using an X-acto knife and tweezers, Korean artist Yoo Hyun hand carves intricate cut-paper portraits that feature the likes of movie stars, world leaders, and musicians. Up close, Hyun’s pieces look like abstract designs, but from afar they read as photo-realistic depictions of his subjects. He achieves this by incorporating a zig-zag pattern into his compositions, where each line is specially cut to build a three dimensional-looking form.

Once a portrait is done, its negative space is see-through. That means Hyun can layer his handiwork onto any surface or pattern, making the same piece look radically different, depending on its backdrop. A black ink-splattered background is a popular choice, but sometimes Hyun goes for bold colors and illuminates the portraits in blue and red.

You can find Hyun’s cut outs, works in progress, and inspirations on his Instagram, @yoo.hyun. If you want to see close-up detail shots of his pieces, check out his @yoohyun_artist account. There, his artwork is blown up and tiled, one piece over many photos, allowing you to examine each section of his work.

Stunning Underwater Restaurant Lets Guests Dine next to Ocean Life

At the Subsix restaurant, located in the #PER AQUUM Niyama resort in the Maldives, guests can dine with the fishes. The subterranean locale descends six meters below the waterline, and it was recently transformed by #Poole Associates from a nightclub into a trendy dining spot. Its updated decor draws inspiration from its aquatic surroundings and infuses the marine aesthetic into every facet of the design.

To reach Subsix, diners must take a speedboat to its 500-meter offshore location. Upon arrival, guests descend a dramatic three-tier staircase into the space. It’s lit with abstract chandeliers that mimic white stars sparkling through the sea’s surface, and they reside among thousands of strands of capiz shells that drape from the…

Incredibly Steep Bridge in Japan Looks Like a Thrilling Roller Coaster for Drivers

The Eshima Ohashi bridge is the largest rigid-frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world, but its uniqueness does not stop there. This incredible structure appears to have an extraordinarily steep incline on both sides, making it look more like a roller coaster that you can enjoy from the seat of your car.The astounding bridge connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato, which rises above Lake Nakaumi. Since many boats utilize the lake for transportation, the architects decided to make it lofty enough for ships to easily pass underneath. The bridge reaches a tremendous height of 44 meters, with a 5.1% and 6.1% incline on each side. …

Floating #Villas Designed with Underwater Bedrooms to Sleep Among Fishes

Standard

For those wanting to live comfortably on the sea, BMT Asia Pacific has conceptualized a series of villas that will float like pontoons. Known as SeaScape, this project offers an alternative in luxury housing on the sea, to compete with the yachts that dominate the current market. The standalone structures are designed to have a variety of add-ons for residents to customize the ship to their exact specifications.

Each SeaScape villa can include a sun deck or a covered pool, which would make the triangular boat as large as 1,800 square feet in size. If that seems too big, there are smaller, 700 square-foot units also available. Regardless of dimensions, all homes will boast a deck and an open room design that allows for unobstructed views of the surrounding sea. There’s also a proposed…

Drawings I produced in the 1980s and 90s were done around, next to, and among the household cats, in tight proximity. There will be more about that in my upcoming cat book, described at  http://catwoodsporchparty.wordpress.com/2012/10/17/announcing-my-cat-book-meowyall-a-feline-centric-memoir/.

These were highly experimental works. Materials are inks, color pencils, graphite, and regular drawing pencils. Sometimes I felt a work in progress needed colors or textures that just hadn’t happened in the drawing process. I had made some drawings for the purpose of having a wide range of effects on hand. I’d hunt for what I needed, cut out sections, and collage the parts together.

Incredible 3D colour images from 1850s Japan

In 1851, when Scotsman Sir David Brewster invented a photographic device called the Lenticular Stereoscope, the way people saw the world changed forever. After presenting it to Queen Victoria at the Great Exhibition in London, Victorians went crazy for the new machine. Photographers were sent far and wide to record famous sights and events in stereo. “See the world from your parlour!” was just one of the many advertising slogans used to promote the fabulous new medium to knowledge thirsty Victorians. These incredible 3D images are just a fraction of the tens of thousands produced.

‘Chunky Knits’ by Anna Mo Incorporate Enormous Stitches to Comfortably Engulf the Body

mo_06

Anna Mo‘s chunky knits are not shy about their pattern, the soft form of her objects forcing the wearer to observe the pieces in all of their magnified glory. To knit these mammoth material works the Ukraine-based Mo not only uses extremely thick sections of wool, but also XXL needles to produce her three-inch-thick stitches. In addition to her wearable works, Mo also sells the yarn that she uses to produce the pieces (100% Australian merino wool) as well as oversized knitting needles so you can produce your own chunky sweaters and blankets.

Mo learned to knit at an early age, continuing the hobby into adulthood as a side project in addition to her work as a designer. Mo uses the tactile nature of knitting to balance her hours in front of the computer, allowing her hands to get as much exercise as her brain. For more images of Mo’s snuggly knits visit her Instagram. (via Beautiful/Decay and ĪGNANT)
