Ever wondered what happened to all those floppy disks, VCR and cassette tapes from the 80s and 90s? It seems they all ended up in the studio of British artist Nick Gentry, who uses them as a canvas for his art. Nick first got the idea after using 3.5″ floppy discs to create a face, later on deciding to incorporate other videos and cassettes from outdated technology. According to Nick, his work reflects how information used to be personal to the format it was stored on rather than shared online like today…

Deconstructing Ways by Isidro Blasco is an art installation which creates an amazing 3D optical illusion of a vortex. Absolutely amazing, no? Located on the corner of Mullins Street & Market Row in Sydney (near the QVB), this installation is part of the annual public arts festival Art & About Sydney.
You have until October 23rd to go see this FREE installation alongside many others, such as Janet Echelman’s stunning Tsunami project on George Street in front of Town Hall. Check out my dodgy iPhone photo of the installation here. It’s way, way better in real life. Promise. (You may recall a fantastic guest post on the blog in April about Jane’s amazing work during the time I was gallivanting around Europe.)
Yes. This is such an exciting time in Sydney when clever Australian and international artists use their creative powers to re-imagine …
Blow me down with a feather, why don’t you?! German street artist EVOL is famous for building stencils in the most unlikely places – this time he created an underground city in a shape of an “X”. This installation is located in a field outside of Hamburg as part of the upcoming MS Dockville music and art festival.
Check out this series of photos showing the eight-day process of installation. Brilliant! I would just love to have a little walk through, even if it does feel slightly claustrophobic in there. Although all the people in the last photo look like they are having a great time. But then again that’s probably due to the fact they are all clutching an alcoholic beverage of choice.
Oh man. Some people are really clever, aren’t they? You may recall me blogging about Art with Tools not that long ago. In a similar vain, I wanted to share with you Art created with Fire. Yes, you heard me. Fire.
Above are a few images of impressive portraits of fallen Russian WWII soldiers created by t-radya. These faces were created using bandages and wooden boards, which were then burned to reveal amazing works of art. The portraits were afterwards displayed on the walls of an abandoned WWII hospital in Yekaterinburg, Russia. Incredible, no?
But wait, there’s more! American artist Paul Chojnowski crates drawings with fire and water on paper and wood. Paul burns, chars and scorches paper creating almost photo realistic images.
