Chinese painter, illustrator and street artist Cheng Yingjie (a.k.a. Hua Tunan) has created an extraordinary painting called “Night Owl” that makes perfect use of his signature colorful and chaotic style.

Artist Paula Strawn has turned her paintbrush and talent to an unexpected but charming art form – baby helmets. Her decorative paint jobs turn these medical devices into playful accessories. The baby helmets Strawn paints on are actually used to shape babies’ developing skulls. The idea to paint on baby helmets came to Strawn when a friend of hers complained about the looks she would get in public when people saw their child wearing a baby helmet.

Johannes Stoetter, the talented artist whom we previously wrote about on Bored Panda, is back at it again with more incredible body art. This time, his colorful and detail-oriented paintbrush has transformed a patient model into a beautiful and bright macaw parrot. In the images below, Stoetter’s beautiful optical illusion gradually unravels. We see how the model was painstakingly painted to obscure the lines of her body and to melt them together into those of the beautiful parrot she becomes.

Imagine biting into an eggplant and feeling raw egg run from your teeth through its brittle shell… Talented Japanese artist Hikaru Cho has made such a bizarre experience possible by misleadingly painting these food items to look like totally different food products. Cho’s artwork is playful but well-done – her work with acrylic paint is hyper-realistic and convincing. Which makes things all the more amusing when she cuts or opens the actual food product underneath.

In what looks like a fun play on Salvador Dali’s melting clocks, Londom-based Chilean artist Livia Marin has created interesting classic porcelain China pieces that seem to have melted and pooled on a hot summer day. The melting porcelain pieces are unsettling because what’s left of the pots, kettles and cups looks like the solid objects we’re used to, while the puddle of “melted” porcelain look like vanilla ice-cream that has been left out in the sun too long.

In the hands of British artist Benjamin Shine, a piece of tulle isn’t just for making fancy dresses and curtains – it becomes a great material for creating amazing realistic “paintings.” Using an iron, Shine sculpts, presses and pleats the huge single piece of tulle, whose transparent qualities give the portrait more texture and depth.

By • Dec 3rd, 2013 • Category: Art, Digital Art, Latest Posts, Painting

Believe it or not, that picture of Morgan Freeman is not a photo – it’s a finger painting. UK-based artist Kyle Lambert finger-paints (or finger-draws, if you’re a purist) extraordinarily photo-realistic portraits of famous Hollywood stars on his iPad. Although the brief time-lapse video makes it look like a breeze, it actually took Lambert more than 200 hours and 285,000 brush strokes to complete.

Singaporean artist Keng Lye has combined beauty and illusion in a masterful way in this amazing work depicting a small octopus in a bowl. The photos look incredibly life-like, as if it’s a real, squirming, writhing octopus. Keng Lye achieves this beautiful effect by painting delicate paintings onto layer upon layer of crystal-clear resin. As the layers, and the painting, grow, the octopus gains depth and appears to be partially submerged.
