  • ALEX

    is it just me or most of this looks like concept art…..still very good none the less, the 1 with astro boy made me LOL ^^,

    • yea it’s because ashley wood is a concept artist – i don’t normally like work in this style but i like ashley’s work

  • MP

    That first painting is really quite scary & dark, fab !

  • The second one looks like the robot from the studio Ghibli film ‘Laputa’. But I am really liking these.

    • steven

      its not called laputa. it’s castle in the sky my friend.

      • bill batz

        check your facts bro. you be wrong in the face of 1986 ghibli movie. disney re named for usa

  • This is my favourite thing I’ve seen on booooooom.

  • his big heavy brush marks and muted colours really work for the scene’s, really glad you posted ashleys work:) it had wandered off to a forgotten part of my mind! his sketches and drawings in his metal gear solid book are so inspiring when looking for character studies 🙂

  • Oh wow, I have the Metal Gear comic and didn’t realise that that was him.

  • Z0NU5

    Long time fan of this guy. My favorite works of his are in the Hellspawn comic book series, but I love his robot works, too.

  • So reminiscent of WWII but yet so futuristic at the core. Dark, cold and just lovely.

  • so

    . THE BEAR heheheh

  • Darkness consumes the whole
    with only fragments of
    what seem to be real
    gleaming through the cloud of
    unknowing

  • Ugh! Ashley’s work is disgustingly amazing! I have one of his “Swallow” art books.

  • Mattattaque

    Definitely has that WWII Eastern front feel. The cat (or whatever it is) is priceless! It’s clearly not a bear though, I mean, look at the tail.

    • Nikola

      It’s a lion. It was a poster Ashley did for the Cannes Future Lions competition (for young creatives working in the advertising industry).

  • Ashley Wood’s work will always be gangster.

  • Davey

    If you like these check out his graphic novel Robots Vs Zombies.

Artist Draws on Pieces of Trash and Leaves Them for People to Find

Wenyi13Wenyi15

Wenyi traverses the streets of Dali, Yunnan Province in China, picking up discarded scraps and drawing on them as part of a personal mission to get people to see art in everyday life. After each sketch is completed he leaves it somewhere more visible but still in the exact spot where the original piece of garbage was collected. See more images below.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
