Art Round Up

From top left to right:

  • Foxy lady: Photographer Valeria Trasatti and illustrator Manuel Fazzini combined to create unique painting-photography portraits [first seen at I Need a Guide]
  • What a statement these painted brushes make! San Fransiscan Rebecca Szeto makes sculptural portraits from paintbrush handles. She says: ‘These works play with notions of re-forming beauty and value, offering a critique on consumerism, women’s work, and a curious entanglement of class dynamics in Leisure & Labor – Trash & Treasure.’ Learn more at Yellowtrace. The one pictured is: The World Is Your Oyster, 2013 / Oil on carved paintbrush.
  • Always love a bit of Banksy graffiti. Here, Serbian artist ABVH turns some of Banksy’s NY works into short animated gifs. See them in action at Buzzfeed.
  • It’s the perfect temperature in here – come and join me #monkeybusiness. Japan’s snow monkeys are cheeky, wise and adorable. This photo from Dutch wildlife photographer Marsel van Oosten, won the People’s Choice Award in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award 2014 at the Museum of Natural History in London. Ogle other winners at Fubiz.
  • Just before Christmas prop designer and animation model maker, Josephine Hague, fashioned birds out of Japanese and vintage floral fabrics for London-based luxe-leather designer Bill Amberg’s window display.

Which one’s your favourite?

  1. I like the pearl earring paintbrush handle. I’m flat-out attracted to paintbrushes, I like the reuse concept, and the reference to the earlier painting resonates. I also love the title.
