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!
