Hyperreal Paintings by Diego Gravinese. When “real” just isn’t sufficient for describing the real, Hyperreal.

Hyperreal Paintings by Diego Gravinese

Diego Gravinese lends much to the genre with his modern twist of super real surrealist oil and acrylic paintings on canvas – hand tweaked replicas of photographs curiously mundane and randomly curious all at once. Taking photo realism to an extreme, the Argentinian artist combines pop art elements with great technical skill to recreate imagery that boggles the mind. Don't Make Me Over.

Netflix Envelope Doodles

You've taken a Sharpie to a Netflix envelope and doodled the heck out of it. Not just once, but a multitude of times. You've then imagined the expression of the postal worker as the envelope passed through their hands, all with a wide grin on your face. Here are some fun examples of people who publicly admit to doing just that. Above drawn by jovino.

Intricately Patterned Animal Illustrations. It would be hard to tell from these strikingly detailed animals but artist Iain Macarthur got his start drawing cartoon characters. Now he carries his sketchbook on the bus, to the cafe and everywhere else as he includes more realism and in this case pattern in his illustrations. See more of his animals (and even some cartoons) at See Also INCREDIBLE 3D ILLUSTRATIONS JUMP OUT OF THE SKETCHBOOK Via: Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea.

His densely composited pen and ink illustrations contain thousands of whimsical characters that are drawn almost completely improvised. I am dumbstruck looking at these and love the wacky juxtaposition of fine art and notebook doodles. See more of his work here, and be sure to click the images above for more detail.

Modern Art Made From Pigeon Feathers.

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. Designers Spin Spidey-Worthy Webs From Packing Tape. Packing tape has gotten MacGyver out of many a jam, but he never managed to make an entire home out of the stuff.

Designers Spin Spidey-Worthy Webs From Packing Tape

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. At the last installation inside Odeon, a former stock exchange building in Vienna, the group used nearly 117,000 feet and 100 pounds of tape. Traders ready to changehange your trading.
