Trapped on the inside

Alexandr Milov created a beautiful sculpture of two adults that are mad at each other, or at least not speaking to each other, out of metal cage like structures.  But then on the inside he put two white marble figures that are to represent the inner child in all of us.  You know, that innocent being that just wants to be friends with everyone, and who doesn't want anyone to be sad or mad at anyone else.

So what are your thoughts?  What are your feeling of this piece?  Would you have changed anything about it?  What is your favorite part, or what part upsets you?

Caption this?

Sometime you come across art that you are not sure what to think of, or what you should call it, and that is okay.

Art is whatever the artist was inspired to create at any time.  As long as their craftsmanship is decent, then the art is a way to get people talking.

So I have some questions about what you think of this piece that I found?

So what do you think?  What would you call this if you had to give it a title?  What does it tell you about the artist?  Can you give any thoughts to his/her feelings or thoughts?

Oldies become goodies

So I know that most of you are too young to have seen advertising from the 50s and 60s, but maybe a few of you have seen some from an old magazine lying around at a grandparents house.  Anyways,  I couldn't find the artist that created these, but I thought they were very interesting and even a little comical. 

Someone has taken old advertisements, some for products that we think nothing of today, and has mixed them with natural items to create works of art.  But you be the judge.

So what do you think?  Can you figure out what products they were originally selling?  Did they do a good job?  What would you have done differently?

Animals and painty days

The artist Philipp Grein is a watercolor artist who mixes paintings of animals and paint splatters.  In a whimsical way he is giving life and interest to a variety of animals.  He paints the animals in either normal colors or in black and white schemes.  He then adds fun paint splatters of colors into the overall image.

What do you think of his work?  Which work do you like the best?  What animal would you paint if you could create this work of art?

4 Ply or 2 Ply?

I am pretty sure most of us don't think what else can we do with toilet paper? Maybe you have thought of how you could turn toilet paper into art, but for those those that haven't artist Sakr Gokcebag has helped us figure out how toilet paper can become art.

So I must ask, what are your thoughts on this design idea?  Do you think it is interesting or a wste of good toilet paper?  What do you love and what do you think he should have done different?  Do you think there is another medium out there that would work better?

Plaster Master pieces

Today I came across these incredible plaster works of art.  Unfortunately I couldn't find the artist, but I was very intrigued by both them and their title.  They are called Morbid Plaster Creations.  I will let you be the judge of them.

So what are your thoughts on these pieces?  Is this a project that you would be interested in doing?  What amazes you about them the most?  Is it the subject matter or the details or something else?  What images would you combine?

Just relax and draw

Do you ever find yourself so stressed that you need to find a way to release that energy?  Maybe not, but if you do, can I recommend drawing.  It can be so soothing to just sit down and doodle, draw and color an image or design.  That's why adult coloring books have made such a comeback.

If you actually read this all the way to the bottom, you don't need to comment on this one, just draw something and show  me your drawing instead of writing me a message.  Because in a way, drawing is just writing in pictures.  Just on a side note,  I am making this post in July so you might need to remind me when you turn it in.
