Awesome Artists

Painting on water, a mesmerising art form!

Painting on water... How is painting on water even possible?? I had seen a few videos of this process but this particular video really had me glued to my screen for a few minutes (it's not very long!)... This painting on water is created by Turkish artist Garip Ay who...

Vivid Festival of Lights in Sydney

As you all know by now, I am addicted to bright colours... coming from anywhere! And that's why I love the incredible Vivid festival of lights in Sydney that happens every year, just as we are about to enter winter. There are amazing sculptures and displays, light...

Iris Grace: master painter and she’s only 5!

Well, hem, that kinds of put me to shame... 😉 Iris Grace is her name... This talented little girl is only 5 and is already famous for her paintings. It's quite incredible as she has only just started to talk because she suffers from autism but is expressing herself...

Graffiti street art: love it or hate it?

While I have not seen a lot of graffiti street art around Sydney (probably because I don't know where the good ones are!), I always love the surprise it gives me when I turn around a corner and bam, in my face, a big wall is painted with amazing graphics that make me...

A Sharpie Lamborghini?

What...?? Did someone REALLY use Sharpie markers to draw on a very expensive car?? Well... yes, they did and, it looks pretty cool actually!!! I believe the artist's name is Brett David. But wait, it doesn't stop...

The Quirky World of Justin Miller

Chicago-based artist Justin Miller says his goal is "to create a scene based on realism with hints of the unexpected and wonder''. I have to agree that he has achieved that through his colourful quirky paintings which have unexpected elements that often remind me of...

Miracle frozen bubbles

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved blowing soap bubbles... There is something so magical about seeing those extremely delicate baubles float away in the wind and with colourful rainbows shining on the surface! If I ever see children play with soap and...

The Charcoal Dance

By now you  may have realised that I love discovering new artists and new art forms... and I just found both! Heather Hansen is a dancer, painter and sculptor in New Orleans, USA, with a very unusual and holistic way to create art: her body is her paintbrush, in a...

Painting without brushes

I stumbled upon the art of Greg Minah while wandering around YouTube - you know what it's like, right? You look at one video, then at the end they suggest more videos... being curious, you click on of them, watch it, then more suggestions and... before you know, it...

Sushi art, wow!

Holly Molly! I have never found food to be boring but some people have certainly taken some of it to a whole new level! It seems you can be creative with just about anything and everything and it's amazing what people come up with... from dusty cars, to art made of...

The Art of Marilyn Manson

Marilyn Manson is certainly an artist with many facets! He is of course best known for his music and songwriting, as well as his controversial appearances in public (and many lawsuits!). I find his physical appearance a little disturbing (and that's obviously...

Creating art with tiny paper dots…

Just the thought of imagining myself doing what Nikki Douthwaite does (and how LONG it would take!) really makes me feel dizzy. Imagine yourself collecting tens of thousands of those tiny paper dots that come out of hole punches, then sorting them out by colour and...

Art out of breakfast cereals… and bacon?

Continuing on my discovery of very quirky art indeed, here is an artist who stands out from the crowds, as he uses food to make art! Jason Mecier created the Big Bird piece below exclusively out of cereals (Fruit Loops, Cheerios, Cocoa Puffs, etc) glued on canvas. But...

Can you believe your eyes?

This girl, Alexa Meade, is a genius and you won't believe your eyes anymore after seeing what she does! She paints the models themselves, places them in a hand painted setting and takes photos of them in a such a way that they end up looking like a real painting! You...

Turning dusty cars into works of art

I was amazed when I came across this article of a parking attendant who found his calling by creating art from the dust stuck on cars! He has been working there for 10 years and he's so good at what he does that some people bring their car dirty on purpose 😉 Read...

The Sand Man

Joe Mangrum is quite an amazing artist who creates ephemeral art in one day... His medium is sand, in a huge range of colours. He creates beautiful patterns on the ground, spends all day working and if it's windy, it is all gone in a flash! It's hard to appreciate all...
