Miniature Paintings for Ants by Lorraine Loots

These superb miniature paintings “for Ants” were expertly crafted by artist, Lorraine Loots of Cape Town. She has been working on these little marvels since early 2013, too, working with a variety of mediums including pencils and paint brushes. I think these are truly unique, with each piece roughly the size of a British Pound Coin! Further down the post, you can see a selection of her work in frames…

I bet the last time you stood on someone else’s chewing gum, you didn’t admire it as art. Well, English ‘urban-graffiti’ street artist Ben Wilson has spent many hours painting the sticky stuff on the pavements (sidewalks) of London. This aptly named “Chewing Gum Art” is pretty unique. As you can see in the following images, Ben certainly likes to get in the thick of it:

Visual designers Craig and Karl have have painted a carpark in dazzling color as part of a creative Mural. It was created for the underground car park of a private residence in the city of Sydney, Australia. My first thoughts on these images was “Wow!, it’s like a Kindergarten Car Park”, but it’s much more than that. Drenched in color, this is simply amazing! They’ve managed to transform something mundane and grey into an attractive place to park.

Clever Car Atlas Rainbow

These clever car atlas rainbow photos are by artist David T.Waller. He used 2500 toy cars to create this stunning circular rainbow. They are arranged by colour to form a really clever piece of art. I don’t know where all the cars came from, but someone’s had quite a collection going on!
