Today’s unusual post features Japanese artist Baku Maeda and his killer moustache. Based in Sapporo, an illustrator by trade, Baku Maeda expresses tremendous energy and power with his work, showing us what’s possible to achieve with humble, unassuming materials like ice and ribbon. Maeda is a classic doodler – but be sure to look between the lines here so you don’t miss a thing.

Jeppe Hein is a Danish artist based in Berlin and Copenhagen. His work sits “at the junction where art, architecture, and technical inventions intersect.” It’s playful, interactive and experimental, and only when the audience is present do Hein’s sculptures truly come to life. Seriously, boxes vibrate and clatter when approached, walls of water appear and his various mirror works only do their thing when people move around them.
Italian photographer Chiara Goia travelled to Dong Cheng, a small village in China where artists are responsible for producing imitations of renowned classical sculptures. I ache for the irony, the beauty and the bizarre nature of these images.
