On his ArtStation profile, the Russian artist describes himself soberly as someone who “draws from time to time”. His works, however, are not sober. They ask questions as much as they fascinate: what did this character do to deserve a murderous gift? Why is another one participating in a pig race? It is difficult not to detect a hint of absurdity in these paintings, such as the one entitled A Spy, where the obese spy has many difficulties hiding behind this fine tree. Continue reading »
The Victorians had a much more macabre approach to the festive season!
Christmas cards today usually feature a jolly Santa, fluffy woodland animal or green glittery tree, but Victorian versions had a much more terrifying tone.
The first Christmas card was commercially produced by Sir Henry Cole in 1843 but it was not until the 1870s, and the introduction of the halfpenny stamp, that sending cards was affordable for almost everyone. Victorians then leapt upon the idea with alacrity. Continue reading »
In 1978 Coach House Press published Marcia Resnick’s book, Re-visions, with minimal text and promotional blurbs by an impressive array of artists and writers including Allen Ginsberg, Andy Warhol, and William S.

One of the most mysterious objects in the Royal Armouries’ collection is the ‘Horned Helmet’, made for Henry VIII.

Bizarre Paintings Of Mecha Robots And Werewolves Attacking East European Peasants Of The Early 20th Century
The Polish artist Jakub Rozalski, who goes by the sobriquet “Mr. Werewolf,” has produced an amusing series of steampunk-ish canvases in which serene and idyllic rustic landscapes of what seem to be Eastern Europe (Rozalski’s very back yard, you might say) in the early decades of the 20th century feature the prominent and inexplicable existence of completely fictitious giant mecha robots.

What did we do before GoPro? When it comes to capturing speed, back in the day, photogs tied themselves to the back of cars, hung off of trucks and then when that wasn’t enough, they jury-rigged point-of-view (POV) cameras on racer’s their helmets with metal brackets, cordes and special made contraptions.

The United Nude Lo Res Car is part of the United Nude Lo Res Project, which started several years ago and has become an important signature of the brand. The Lo Res design method is based on the principle of re-designing the same object in a series, each time lowering the 3D resolution, resulting in a more fragmented and abstract design each step of the way.

Years before the project Miradors became reality, photographer Erwan Fichou saw a man standing in a tree that looked like a UFO. This image stuck with him and he eventually turned his memory into a reality, working with gardeners to design topiaries of varying shapes and sizes.
Afterwards, he invited people off the street to climb those trees and photographed them at the top.This strange and light-hearted series illustrates the interesting progression of what happens when we have a memory. Often times we see things as we walk down the street, file them in our brain, and move on. So, it’s refreshing to see that Fichou returned to this moment and developed something completely new from it. Continue reading »
The Standard Hotel chain made use of their 2013 customer evaluations in a creative way. Under the direction of Erik Kessels and photograph Thomas Mailaender, the hotel rolled out a quirky calendar that references twelve of the strangest letters, suggestions and complaints collected from their guests. As part of the visual documentation, hotel staff were invited to re-enact the scenes, which include a man completely wrapped in toilet paper and a Daschund puppy sandwiched between a hot-dog bun.
Flipping through the monthly themes, you will find a hallway full of water cups from a guest thanking the hotel for curing his epic hangover. Good thing there is a small explanation on each page, or else it would be impossible to understand what is happening in the photo. Nonetheless, the Amsterdam-based creative agency KesselsKarmer did a great job in creating something that is unique to the hotel. So if you have ever left a comment card at The Standard, be prepared because your idea might be one of 12 peculiar calendar ideas for the new year. Continue reading »
The six-legged lamb was born in a small village called Velistikhe in the republic of Georgia. The baby lamb has four legs in the front and two legs in the back.
