From surrealism in everyday objects to staying in a painting, today my four finds test the imagination …
From top left to right:
Russian artist Asya Kozina’s fascination with historical wigs has turned into a festival of Baroque hairstyles all made from paper. See more at Lost at E Minor and read about the artist here. Her work is extraordinary!
Want to know what it feels like to stay in a painting of a great master? Airbnb is letting you do just that having recreated Van Gogh’s iconic painting The Bedroom for Airbnb guests to stay in. The installation coincides with an exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago featuring three versions of Van Gogh’s bedroom at his home in Arles, France. Check it out here.
See Istanbul as a drone does (with a bit of tweaking involved)! Turkish photographer Aydın Büyüktaş has used a drone to produce a series of digital artworks called ‘Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions’. After months of technical problems (i.e birds), bad weather and issues with permissions, his persistence has paid off. See more photos here and on his Facebook page.
Oh how I love a bit of surrealism and what better way to re-imagine blocks of cheese, a slice of lemon, a football than in an unconventional way. Mexico-based graphic designer and photographer Paul Fuentes has a lot of fun with this concept. See more on Instagram.
