The World Turned To Pixels. Sick Glass. Chain Sculptures by Seo Young Deok. You’ve probably sculptures made from bicycle chains , but I bet they’re nothing like the ones created by South Korean artist, Seo Young Deok. The incredible ‘works of Seo Young Deok are clearly inspired by the shapes of the human body, but artists have been sculpting masterpieces based on our natural curves for hundreds of years. What makes this Korean designer special is the material he uses for his unique creations – bicycle chains.

Miles of metal chains, to be exact, welded in such a way that they recreate the human body to the finest details. Deok says he finds inspiration for his art in crowded markets, and metro or bus stations, but also in Buddhist sculptures and paintings, which he has alway admired. “I like Asia Beauty” he says, “so most features of my work seem to take an Asiatic pose”. Water and ink. Art & Design The Italian artist Alberto Seveso takes pictures of ink in different colours blending into water.

It might be something that is done a hundreds times before, but this is done better than we've seen saw. Three-Dimensional Goldfish Painting. First: watch the video.

Three-Dimensional Goldfish Painting

Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it’s such an odd process that results in something that’s both a painting and sculptural. Wonderful.
