    Would love to have that first one in my living room..

  • These remind me of this house I saw once in an architecture book that was designed to look as if it was exploding. I can’t find a picture though :/

    These remind me a lot of this guy’s stuff:

    destruction from a tornado on a sunny day.

  • shaneen

    i just love these. the technical ability is there & mastered but not flaunted. each is a surprise/intriguing. i wish i could paint like this.

  • destruction… very cool

  • emily

  • Makes me feel like these are the spaces our homes would be in if they still existed in 200 million years.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs


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!
