If you liked the work of Sheffield, England-based artist Craww (aka Shaun Friend) we featured here last month, you’ll want to check out his kickstarter! “Vessel” is a proposed collection featuring five years of sketching and insight into his creative process. More information and images below!

Banksy’s latest exhibition, Dismaland, is certainly his most ambitious to date. The elusive artist has turned a dilapidated 2.5 acre seaside resort in Weston-super-Mare, England, into his version of a Disney theme park. And by his version I mean a provocative, sarcastic, wasteland created to be a scathing critique of consumerism and the depressing state of what we consider to be entertainment.
The park features 10 new works by the artist, including a sculpture that features Cinderella and her carriage post-accident, surrounded by paparazzi.

Environmental artist Steve Messam has built a bridge from 22,000 pieces of paper. Nestled in the English countryside, the structure operates like a freestanding arch and is held together solely by compression (i.e. chunks of 1,000 pieces of paper grouped tightly together).
Of course, while the bridge is fully functional, has already supported over 7,000 visitors, and only gets stronger when wet, it will eventually be torn down. Like all of Messam’s installations, the bridge is meant to draw people’s attention to their surroundings rather than alter the natural landscape in any permanent way. Check out more images of the paperbridge below.
