Cool Art Of The Day

Thomas Allen’s Book Art Photography on Paintalicious.

American photographer Thomas Allen constructs witty and clever dioramas using figures cut from the covers of old pulp paperbacks. Using salacious pulp art drawing’s of the ’40s and ’50s that covered books such as ” I Married a Dead Man” and ” Marihuana Girl’, Allen constructs one set of pictures up close while obscuring another, and in the process creates a different context. Each piece is given a brand new storyline, though never quite strays from their cheeky origins.

This is some pretty creative stuff.  It’s like magazines turned into 3D images.  But Paintalicious also has lighter fare, like The Secret History Of Kiss.

There Be Monsters. And Art.

Joseph Carnevale, a Raleigh, NC artist, was recently arrested for his art.  Well, to be precise, he got arrested because he made his art out of stolen traffic barrels.  Illegal, yes, but so fracking cool!  So cool, in fact, that the construction company was willing to forgive him and not press charges, but the police didn’t have the same appreciation for the arts that they did.

He’res MSNBC’s take on itThis post at Sub5Zero has more pictures.

Random Artstuffs

Most of these are from the Some Random Dude, MakeUseOf, and Vandelay Web Design websites/mailing lists, but some were scooped up from the entropy.

16 Of The Internet’s Weirdest Meat Creations

From Digg: 16 of the Internet’s Weirdest Meat Creations. “From meat hats to bacon bras, giant burgers and outrageous barbeques, find out what the latest obsession really means.”

Usually I’m not into the whole food as a dare thing, let alone food as art or food as clothing, but as a collection, this one is interesting.  Maybe, like these meat creations, seeing a big pile of them isn’t quite as scary as seeing them one by one.

And because I like contrast, we have this.

Really Cool Art Projects

I found ARTMARCOVICI from the oddly-name But Does It Float, which I found from the Some Random Dude mailing list and blog.  There is, of course, regular interesting art there. But he also has some interesting concept pieces I found fascinating.  Some are futuristic designs, some are more sociopsychological in nature.  I love the high-tech futuristic stuff, but what kept me on the site is the creativity and diversity.

As an example of the creativity is the project Hell.  The artist notes that Hell in German also means “bright”.  So he designed a display with insanely bright LEDs that form the word “HELL”.
