Matthew and Roxanne Ortiz (Vers Hawaii)

vers-hawaii-mural-01

Matt and Roxy Ortiz are a husband and wife artist duo, based in Honolulu, making work under the name Vers Hawaii. The couple are becoming known for their paintings of fantastical tree top villages that feature half-pipes and bowls.

I’m sure their work will remind most people of the Lost Boys hideout in Peter Pan but it actually reminds me of something a lot more obscure. Has anyone read Babar Visits Another Planet? I’m probably alone on this one but the floating houses on different levels, and the slides, totally make me think of it.

Take a look at more of their work below!

The Invisible Bike Helmet by Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin

The Invisible Bike Helmet by Anna Haupt, Terese Alstin
Believe it or not Anna Haupt is wearing an invisible helmet in the above image. I know what you’re thinking and the answer is no, it’s not hidden in that touque she’s wearing. What started as an exam project turned into 10 million dollars of venture capital and 7 years of research for Anna and Terese Alstin. They were told it couldn’t be done. The end of this video gave me chills.
