It’s been awhile since we’ve seen anything new from Beats by Dre so I was excited when I heard their latest collaboration. This time, Beats has hooked up with street artist Futura to create this limited edition pair of Solo HD Headphones. The Headphones feature artwork inspired by Futura’s “Atom” series with blue accents on the interior. White premium leather ear pads ensure that these will always be comfortable.
This is quite the use for lottery tickets that were losers. Two artists, Adam Eckstrom & Lauren Was, worked together to create these sculptures. They used 1000s of tickets for each of these pieces. Pretty dope.
Yes, you read that right, these are paintings….. Paintings. Artist, Keng Lye, creates these like-life sculptures using just paint, resin, and a whole lot of talent. He slowly fills bowls, buckets, etc. with layers of resin and acrylic paint until he has what resembles a real, live aquatic animal. Unreal.
Artist JR just launched his first ever iPad App. The app allows you to view all of JR’s work with beautiful Retina display-optimized photos, videos and interactive features. The JR app is available now on iTunes for free.
It’s Monday morning, and something a lot of us have in common is a cup of coffee. Anyways, meet Mike Breach, barista extraordinaire.
Photorealistic paintings are the most unreal thing. All of these paintings look like photographs. Major props to Nathan Walsh.
If you’re not familiar with Alberto Seveso, you should check these out. Alberto takes photographs of ink being dropped into water, and man, it turns out dope. These are some never before seen pics from his previous projects.
I’m sure these are not very easy to do. An artist by the name of Makaon puts these together out of recycled aluminum cans. These were a few of my favorite.
This is the kind of stuff that I like to collect. It would be so dope to own one or two of these. Check out a ton of other works on their Facebook page.
This is a recent installation at Nike Stadium on Bowery. Artist Jenny Sabin was the one who built it. The Flyknit Collective will be in 6 cities total, and this is the first on display called the myThread Pavilion.
Here’s a timelapse video of Patrick Vale drawing the view of Lower Manhattan from the Empire State Building. I wish I could draw half as good as this.
You guys may have seen a post we did quite a while ago by Slinkachu. This is a very similar assortment of art from Kurt Moses titled, Un Petit Monde, which is French for “A Small World”.
Normally, I would save these pics for myself to use in random dopeness posts here & there. I’m feeling pretty generous today, and you guys deserve it anyways. All these photos were taken by Alexander Tikhomirov, and I like his taste a lot.
Here is some more “hyperreal” art, this time from Pedro Campos. I swear all of these look like straight up photographs. I can’t fathom the amount of skill and patience it must take to hand-paint these. Pedro is based out of Madrid.
