Artistic Toasts: 20 Pictures of Creatively Made Toast-art
art-to-please-and-tease RALEIGH — For now, Wake County's new parking deck in downtown Raleigh is a cinderblock facade - a stark reminder of an ambitious plan thwarted by recession. But over the next two weeks an enormous piece of artwork composed of 15 fantasy-themed banners will color the walls that now face Davie and McDowell streets. The gray will be transformed into a scene of roaring oceans, violet clouds, a polar bear, a dragon and a slew of characters chasing each other through the sky. The original plan from developer Greg Hatem's Empire Properties was for an L-shaped building with ground-level retail and office space to shield the parking deck. art-to-please-and-tease

Dalton Ghetti creates amazing art on the tips of used pencils

Dalton Ghetti creates amazing art on the tips of used pencils Most of us will agree with the age-old saying that “patience is a virtue.” How many of you, however, would actually hang on for two years and a half to bring a piece of art into existence? Dalton Ghetti, 49, a Bridgeport artist, has spent 25 good years working with a razor blade, a sewing needle and a sculpting knife for carving his unique art on the graphite of pencil. The artist says: I don’t make money from it but I would love a gallery owner in England to fly me over and put on a show.

Won Park – The Master of Origami Paper Folding

Won Park – The Master of Origami Paper Folding Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper. Won Park is the master of Origami. He is also called the “money folder”, a practitioner of origami whose canvas is the United States One Dollar Bill. Bending, twisting, and folding, Won Park creates life-like shapes inspired by objects living and not– both in stunning detail.
