We all have many old and unused items lying around in our homes or garages waiting to be thrown away. However, before you start cleaning your home, we want to show you 20 incredibly creative Do It Yourself projects that may change your mind. You’ll learn that a lot of useless items can be transformed into wonderful creations. You can turn an old glove into a cute chipmunk toy, toilet paper rolls into a beautiful floral wall art, plastic bottle into a broom and many more.
London-based designer Percy Lau creates tiny lifelike human body parts that can be worn as jewelry. Her weirdly awesome accessories include little third ear, mouth, nose and even a tiny male genitalia. You can wear them as earrings, necklaces, and rings. All of them are fun, but I’d pick the Little Third Ear earrings as they look incredibly cool when put in our big ears. What about you? Would you wear them?
“Attraction/Aversion” is Kerry Howley’s award winning graduate collection, winning the Museum of Domestic Architecture’s Arthur Silver Award for graduate innovation and excellence. It is a material exploration of how people can feel seemingly opposing emotional responses simultaneously. The necklaces are made of human hair, a familiar material that we take pride in. However once off of the body hair becomes an innate source of aversion. Kerry wanted to see if she could make discarded hair attractive again.
As strange as it sounds, New York-based artist Judith Braun creates all these wonderful landscapes and abstract patterns using nothing but her fingers dipped in charcoal dust. Braun says that she often uses her both hands simultaneously to the extent of arms’ reach as this allows the inherent symmetry of the body to generate a gestural vocabulary of mark making.
Every year, in the month of January, thousands of visitors flock to Bikaner, India for the Camel festival. Desert region’s folk dances and music, add on to what is otherwise an exclusive camel affair. Camels fascinate tourists from all over the world with their movements, charm and grace. The festival starts with the procession of beautifully decorated camels, a competition for best decorated camel, fur cutting design, camel milking and the best camel hair cut.
If you follow our Facebook page, you may have noticed that we’ve been sharing a lot of new works of Brock Davis lately. Seeing his great interest in food, I’ve decided that his creative food art is worth a separate entry. Brock Davis is a Minneapolis-based artist and creative director with a knack for creating ground-breaking work. Brock has worked in advertising for the past 17 years. When he isn’t busy making ads he’s busy making other things, like one piece of art every day for a year in his “Make Something Cool Every Day” project.
Photographer Nick Stern has recreated the work of the world’s most famous graffiti artist Banksy in real life. British-born Nick Stern, who is now based in Los Angeles, spent months meticulously gathering and making props for this thought-provoking series of images in order to capture Banksy’s controversial art through film. The images recreate eight of Banksy’s iconic images, including the gay kissing cops, Jesus with shopping bags and the Mona Lisa with an RPG.
When viewed from a distance, the works of Sagaki Keita may look like another attempt to recreate classical paintings and sculptures, but when you come closer, you start to notice that his drawings are all made of thousands of cartoon doodles. Tokyo-based artist draws in ink, usually with a 0.38mm pen, and, amazingly, all of his works are completely improvised without being drafted first.
French artist Sandrine Estrade Boulet takes pictures of everyday objects on the streets of Paris and then draws over them to give new meaning to ordinary things like street posts, puddles or even a broken umbrella. Her works remind me of Creative Street Art Ideas from OakoAk that we’ve featured earlier and I had to check them twice to make sure they’re not OakoAk’s works.
