by-Nanette-Lepore

For its spring 2015 campaign, Bloomingdale’s worked with six popular fashion designers to create exclusive pieces saturated in a bright, spring-ready hue—matched to an official Crayola color.

Artist Turns A Ford Falcon Into A Tank-Shaped Traveling Library

1

In celebration of world book day on 5th march, 7UP has teamed up with Buenos Aires-based artist Raul Lemesoff in the creation of ‘weapons of mass instruction’, a traveling library that tours Argentina in the shape of a tank. The ongoing project, which Lemesoff has built upon throughout the last few years, sees a 1979 Ford Falcon transform into a military-style vehicle, with a rotating upper chamber and pseudo-barrel. Although the tank may look militant, it has a very serious function of peace — Lemesoff tours through Argentina’s urban centers and rural communities, offering free books to anyone interested. Around 900 books fit on the car’s built-in shelves, with a varied collection of poetry, novels and biographies.

Created by artist Agnė Kišonaitė, ‘Giant Lipstick’ is made of 5000+ used lipstick tubes, measuring a height of 2.5 meters with an overall weight of 200kg.

Incredibly Realistic Wood Sculptures Of People Hand-Carved By Peter Demetz

1
Italian artist Peter Demetz has a gift for breathing life into wood, a material that seems hard and lifeless to most of us. His wooden sculptures of people are flawlessly life-like. Demetz’s precise and perfect mastery of human anatomy makes his sculptures look like paintings or sketches, and his wonderful compositions and sense of perspective help perpetuate this illusion. The grain of the wood and its warm colors, however, give them a tactile appearance that would be difficult to fake with paint.

Abstract Portraits by Han Xiao

Han Xiao was born in LiaoNing, a province of China located in the northeast of the country. Her work is intense trying to identify the loneliness and the anxiety each person feels in some periods of life. She told a parabola about the bamboo tree that grows in Eastern China, “Even if a farmer takes care of the bamboo plant, it will only grow three cm in four years after the seeds germinate. However, five years later, the growth rate of bamboo can be 30 cm per day. It can grow up to 15 meters!”. This is true and applies to any discipline, to any person. Enjoy.
