140-year-old Tree Reproduction

Recently unveiled at the MadArt space in Seattle, Middle Fork is the lastest sculptural work by artist John Grade who worked with countless volunteers to realize this enormous scale mold of a 140-year-old tree. The process began a year ago when Grade and a crew of assistants scaled a Western Hemlock tree in North Bend, […]

Wallwave Vibrations

Loris Cecchini has created a “tattoo in relief” which appears as a part of the very fabric, or skin, of the wall. Architecture relies on the logic of geometry—primarily linear and planar elements—yet here the artist utilizes the geometry of the sphere in a roughly circular composition. As a result, the sculpture seems to pulsate or […]

San Francisco, 1 Man and 3000 Toothpicks

Thirty five years ago Scott Weaver  had already begun work on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay, that he continues to modify and expand even today.

Sculptures Full of Cities

Psychogeography is the act of exploring an urban environment with an emphasis on curiosity and drifting.

A Japanese Landscape Miniature by Takahiro Iwasaki

He turns trash into sculpture by creating impressive miniature landscapes that often feature factories, ferris wheels and other iconic structures. And now, the artist’s first solo […]

Incredible Sand Sculpures

While Ray Villafane is best known for his expertise in the art of food carving, he is also recognized for his magnificent, remarkably realistic sand sculptures.

This is How James Corbett Gives New Life to Old Cars

Sometimes art is just that thing we have a need to make, whether it makes any sense or not. “I create my sculptures not only because I am able to, but because I am unable not to. My sculptures are by nature a solved puzzle, and it’s the challenge of solving the puzzle that gives me […]

The City Series | Vision of a post-apocalyptic world

Lori Nix isn’t your typical photographer. Actually, she’s more of a sculptor. These emotional scenes show her vision of life after the apocalypse, but that’s not the only thing that makes these photographs amazing — it’s how they are created: Most of the tiny elements are made by hand and assembled on a tabletop, with […]

Tire art | Rubber animal and hybrid

“My concept is mutation—mutants,” the artist, Oh JiYoung, explains.  “The product is from nature,” from the white sap of latex trees, “But here it’s changed. The color is black. The look is scary. Rubber is very flexible, like skin, like muscles.” He chooses animals that are often seen as “monsters,” then obsesses over every detail—each muscle, […]

Most Beautiful Book Sculptures

Old and heavy books always seem like a mysterious and infinite well of wisdom and imagination. That moment, when you pick up an old book from a shelf and wipe away thick layer of dust from it‘s cover, is full of magic. However, book is so much more than pages full of words. I’ve always thought […]

The Nature’s Colors

Land art is about the doing, not the viewing of the end result. If you have any sort of love for nature then I encourage you to make your own. A few hours spent somewhere studying the materials you find and the place you are in can be magical, calming and peaceful. Richard Shilling Richard […]
