While I agree that the oversexualization of female bodies is tedious and obnoxious, I cannot see why it's such a particularly big deal when it's about Disney princesses. It's not like they are especially kick-ass female characters to begin with, and the term "heroine" barely even applies because they are mostly pining for some guy they have fallen in love with at first sight, their ultimate goal is marriage, and they are mostly helpless and vulnerable, rendered so by the male, Romantic, burgeoise point of view with which literary fairy tales were first written, and then Disney came and extra-candified them.

By Tabi , on June 26, 2010 This wonderful work has done by a very talented Belgian painter, illustrator, portraitist, caricaturist and photographer Ben Heine . This creative artist was born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. He Studied graphic arts and sculpture and I also have a degree in journalism. Lets take a look at some of his awesome works that he calls “Drawing Vs Photography” or “Imagination Vs Reality”.
Who would have thought that you could use feather to create something so amazing? It looks like water running out of pipes and walls, but it is actually a bunch of single feathers from pigeons. Artist Kate Mccgwire from London is the brain behind this work, and she is not only making “feather water”, but also other sculptures that I would say are abstract, but that gives the art pieces a modern look. They also look so incredibly soft because of the feathers, and I bet a lot of you would like to touch it if you had the chance. Maybe you can buy tickets to her next exhibition?
Packing tape has gotten MacGyver out of many a jam, but he never managed to make an entire home out of the stuff. So he could probably learn something from Viennese/Croatian design collective For Use/Numen. The team uses nothing but packing tape to create huge, self-supporting cocoons that visitors could climb inside and explore. Installed three times in the past year, the next deployment will be next week from June 9–13 at DMY Berlin's International Design Fair , which is now in its 8th year. The installations, which look like the work of horrifyingly large arachnids, grew in scale and scope as the year progressed, first deployed inside a small Croatian gallery, then an abandoned attic during October’s Vienna Design Week.

Lassen Sie mich Ihre Fantasie durch Graffiti-Kunst beflügeln. Graffito ist ein anderes Wort für eingeritzte, aufgekritztelte, gemalte, gesprühte oder in irgend einer Form an Gebäuden angebrachten Schriftzeichen oder Bildern. Diese Kunstform wird gelegentlich als frei und unverkrampft bezeichnet. Jedenfalls ist es eine sehr alte Kunst, die bis auf die Römerzeit zurückgeht (mal ganz abgesehen von Höhlenmalereien – Anmerkung der Redaktion).

(hack line – couldn’t help it) Artist Jason de Caires Taylor creates life-size cement sculptures of people and submerges them into the waters of South America.
Mail-Order Bride Artist Terry Border is one of those people who has a secret gift. He can take boring, everyday objects and make them come alive! In fact, his art can be appreciated for the clever thought behind it. What I love most about his work, though, is that it can be enjoyed by everyone.
