Artists Chris McMahon and Thryza Segal decided to inject a little fun into these discarded works and give them a second life by adding monsters to the scenic landscapes.
At just 22 years old, Italian artist Diego Fazo has developed the skill to create photo-realistic drawings using a simple charcoal pencil. His latest creation, pictured below, has drawn hundreds of positive comments on his Deviant Art profile. Don’t tell me you can tell the image below is a drawing and not a high-definition photograph, because I don’t buy it. In fact people were so skeptical this incredible piece of art was drawn by hand that young Diego Fazo had to put up some photos of the work in progress just to lay doubts to rest.

Paper artist Joel Cooper folds these astounding masks and tessellations from single pieces of paper. Given the right conditions I might be expected to fold a piece of paper in half, and on a good day even into fourths, but I simply can’t fathom the patience and understanding required to transform paper into three-dimensional objects like this. You can see more of his work here and some of the pieces seen here are available on Etsy .

This email was sent to me a few months ago. Recently I have been contacted (twice) by people suggesting this is a HOAX (see comments below).

The evidence that he created these sculptures is however sketchy.

I can’t imagine the painful he undergo, but these sprawling salt painting looks like a best way to heal his sadness.
Presenting our 2011 Holiday Windows The BG Holiday Windows are a most welcome institution — they give a lot of pleasure to us while others do the hard work. We have the easy part—we show up marvel and take pictures. David Hoey and the visual team have the hard part: planning, building, perfecting, and collecting antiques for more than two years. Well the work is over and the windows are here: The Carnival of the Animals have arrived. Each window features a specific material that depicts animals you’ll find from icebergs to the tropics—but rarely on Fifth Avenue.
