Pixel Sorting Is The Trending New Visual Effect

Jessica Andersdotter is a 24 year old artist from Sweden who was bored with regular photography and started pixel sorting to create surreal and new worlds within her art.

Pixel sorting is a visual effect created by taking the rows, columns, or other sets of pixels in an image and ordering them according to some value of those pixels… like how much red is in each pixel, their luminosity, hue, etc.

Street Artist Trolls City Workers Into Painting An Old Ugly Building

This street artist perfectly trolled his city into painting and old ugly building.

He started out by tagging the spot a few times…

Pretty soon he noticed a trend. The city workers just covered up each tag with red paint.

Eventually the city got tired of the street artist/comedian and they just painted the entire building.

Someone Paid $13 Million For Jeff Koons’ “Coloring Book” Sculpture


Artist Jeff Koons sold another one of his gigantic sculptures over the weekend. This time, he auctioned off his 18-foot “Coloring Book” sculpture at a charity event in Cannes. The translucent structure ended up selling for over $13 Million. Before anyone gets upset at someone spending that much money on a piece of art, all of the proceeds from the event were donated to AIDS research.

Take a closer look at the sculpture below:
