Illustrator Elizabeth Sherry likes to make classical-style art based on videogame characters. No, not 8-bit. She went way more old school than that. Her digital paintings even have cracks and creases on them to make them look really old.
I grew up with the Star Wars action figures so I’m a sucker for anything related to these characters. And this piece of amazing art should be hanging on my wall. It is the Boba Fett action figure, in all it’s plastic glory, painted life-sized and looking very authentic indeed.
What good is a portrait of a chair when your legs are weary and are in need of rest? Tons of good, apparently, if it happens to be one of the portraits by YOY. That’s because aside from being a striking piece of art, each painted seat doubles as an actual piece of furniture.
I love a good art exhibit as much as the next guy, but sometimes it can get a little boring just staring at all the static paintings on the walls – never mind the humiliation of getting chastised by the museum security for standing to close to them, like what happened to me a MoMA a couple of months back.
Some people relieve their stress by popping bubble wrap. Others exercise their creativity and showcase their talent by creating portraits using bubble wrap. And by ‘others’, we mean artist Bradley Hart.
He probably had to buy rolls and rolls of the stuff and he clearly spent a lot of time working on his project.
Graffiti can be cool, at least when its done with artful purpose. With robots all over the place, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to make a robot that drew graffiti. The original Senseless Drawing Bot was great, but this one is even better.
Need some classy geek art to decorate your place with? Try this awesome Darth Vader riding a Tauntaun painting. It’s like the Dark Lord is in the Imperial cavalry, mounted on his noble Tauntaun steed. In the desert.
Aside from shows like iam8bit, galleries and museums are rarely places to find cool gamer art. But it doesn’t take long over on Etsy to turn up a wide variety of impressive artworks for fans of all sorts of video games.
Light painting can be a pretty awesome technique, which involves the capture of a moving light source, using long-exposure photography. Photographers have created some pretty amazing images using the medium, but it can be complicated to pull off unless you know exactly what you’re doing, and have a camera with full manual exposure controls.
While much of the world knows the game with a round black and white ball as “football,” here in the U.S., we call the game “soccer.” So this picture of multiple Spocks dressed up in soccer uniforms probably only makes sense here, in Canada and maybe Australia.
OK, I’ll admit it. I’m sort of obsessed with Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night. I just can’t get enough of the sweeping wind patterns that are prevalent in this piece of incredible art. This is one of the reasons why I’m always happy to find recreations, tributes, and reinterpretations of one of Van Gogh’s most beautiful pieces.
I don’t remember exactly when I started obsessing about The Starry Night, but needless to say that this is one painting that I find unforgettable, especially when it comes to the swirling wind patterns in the sky.
Some people like graffiti, some people hate it. Any artform that puts droids on the streets is fine by me. No matter how you feel about graffiti, you have to love this secret door that is hidden within a graffiti R2-D2.
We’re always talking about stuff made out of LEGO around here, and while I’ve even seen furniture and vehicles made from LEGO bricks, I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve seen a load-bearing bridge that uses LEGO.
Jeffrey Stephenson’s latest computer is a work of art based on a work of art. The Mondrian mini-ITX case is of course named after Reginald Mini-ITX Case, who invented the – wait. Wrong timeline. In this universe Stephenson appropriated the style of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, known for his minimalist and abstract works.
