Mind-melting sculptures by artist Yoshitoshi Kanemaki, from Chiba, Japan. More images below.
Los Angeles-based artist Sarah Sitkin recently made the most amazing iPhone case I’ve ever seen. It’s a synthetic ear that moves and feels like a real human ear! Have a look at the rest of her work below, it’s like something out of a Chris Cunningham music video (and I mean that as the highest compliment).
There’s just something about this ear, ahhh I can’t stop looking at it. I poked around Instagram, and it looks like the ear found a home in Australia. Okay, more below!
When I look at the incredible work of artist Toshihiko Mitsuya I can’t help but be reminded of that kid with no money who made action figures out of twist ties. Mitsuya’s sculptures are created out of aluminum foil, not twist ties, but there’s the same sense of child-like wonder in his work. Lots of images below.
These ceramic sculptures by San Francisco-based artist Erika Sanada strike an interesting balance between creepy and cute. There’s a real tension in these works that the artist says is a struggle between joy and sorrow. More images below.
These plant/animal sculptures by Vancouver Island-based artist Ellen Jewett are wondrous! More images below.
In honour of the imminent release of The Force Awakens aka the movie that has already taken over the Internet, here are some digitally created faux-marble sculptures by a French artist who goes by the name Travis Durden (a reference to two of his favourite movies). The heads are, of course, those of iconic Star Wars characters while the bodies have been repurposed from various masterpieces at the Louvre. Check out more of Durden’s unique mash-ups below!
