Abandoned Manhole Covers Converted into Secret Rooms

Briancoshock1

Milan-based artist Briancoshock turns abandoned manhole covers into fully decorated miniature rooms.

shawn-huckins08

Paintings by Denver, Colorado-based artist Shawn Huckins, whose solo show “Everything Is Hilarious And Nothing Is Real” opens May 5th at Modernism Inc gallery in San Francisco. The exhibition will debut new works in an on-going series in which Huckins meticulously re-creates 19th-century American paintings, and combines them with the language of our mobile-messaging, social media-obsessed, times.

The works are not digitally generated or Photoshopped, everything is hand-painted, even the text. More images below.

Moxhay6

Gorgeous yet subtly distorted tableaus by London-based artist Suzanne Moxhay. Created using a combination of photographed and painted interiors, strange light casts shadows in unexpected directions and natural elements confuse the distinction between inside and out. See more images below.
