Barboncino Sculpture

From the D’Alvia site:

D’Alvia works in a sculptural idiom that is decidedly hyper-visual, artisanal and history laden. He has developed proprietary sculptural processes that co-opt existing means of traditional and industrial production. Drawing on sources that include megalithic monuments, toy design and the Baroque, the work encapsulates seemingly antithetical motifs such as minimal/ornate, industrial/handmade, comic/tragic, progress/destruction and attraction/repulsion… [read more]

Felt Art by Lauren O. Venell

sliced bacon

This felt art by Lauren O. Venell uses fleece, felt, thread, stuffing and wool yarn. The work was commissioned by the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, PA (USA) for an exhibition they were holding. This exhibition, named “DIY: a Revolution in Handicrafts” was originally set up at an “EAT Space”. Their unique installation includes four large soft sculpture meats to be hung from the ceiling behind a deli case, amongst other things.


You’d normally associate materials like felt and stuffing to be used in teddy bears—this is what has captivated me most with this felt art style work. This whole exhibition turns ‘everything on its head’. Near the end of this post, check out the menu items. I think you’ll be surprised at the interesting facts about meat on there…

bottom me attrays

From Lauren’s site:

This project exposes the true cost of factory farmed meat through the price tags on each tray. The price of each pork and beef product includes both the average supermarket price per pound, plus the cost to taxpayers in public health, environmental damage and government subsidies. These costs were calculated from data found in various government, industry and scientific reports, and are broken out in the “Today’s Specials” menu board… [read more]

Realistic Paintings by Janet Ternoff

realistic painting of wall street

These realistic paintings were produced by talented Janet Ternoff. She is a self-taught artist living and working in New York, who creates cityscapes in oil paints. The majority of her work are scenes from New York City:

gawanus painting

Janet’s site reads:

Something that I love so much about your pieces is how they take you directly to a place or a time. I’ve lived in New York my whole life (until recently) and feel that I know every one of your paintings. It’s as if that place is a memory pulled right out of my life. I love when you can look at a painting and feel right at home. It takes unfathomable talent to make that magic and I can never help reaching out to an artist on those rare occasions!  [read more].

Starwars of the Victorian Era

Starwars of the Victorian Era. Who doesn’t like Starwars? Well, to satisfy most of us, here are some amazing digital paintings of four infamous characters. They have been spruced up in Victorian attire by talented illustrator and animator, Greg Peltz. I recently went to see the new Star Wars film with my son at the IMAX near where I live, and I must say, it was great to see C3-P0 and R2D2 on a huge screen again!

5 Fantastic Artworks by Federico Uribe

Here are 5 stunning pieces of artwork by Federico Uribe. As can be seen, the artworks are made from everyday objects, such as jigsaw pieces, pencils and coins. I can remember back in the days of art class, where there wasn’t a computer in sight. All we had to work with were pencils, coloured pastels, vaious paints, and of course – pencils! The ends of these were either thrown away or simply put back into the art trays. No-one ever used used them, so it’s good to see an artist like Uribe find such a fantastic use for the old pencil-ends and suchlike…
