As well as the terrifying baby cake and lifesize hound dog-shaped sugar sculpture (above), below are some more of Michelle Wibowo’s amazing sugary creations. I particularly like the cupcake big enough for 2,000!
Cute yet powerful art installation from Sam3 – entitled Ugly Duckling.
This is fundamentally wrong on so many levels I am not sure where to start but I’ll give it a go…
An artist has used over 200,000 dead ants to make a ‘painting’ of his brother. The portraits from artist Chris Trueman are designed to look like an old-timey yellowed photograph, except with hundreds of thousands of harvester ants instead of photographic film.
“They’d die in a couple of minutes and then I’d sprinkle them onto a flat piece of Plexiglass,” Trueman said. “Some ants would break apart because they were dried out, and others would be in their full form.”
Sole Heaven and Zero Cool Gallery recently teamed up to create art on a bunch of trainers. The idea was simple; give a bunch of infamous graffiti artists a pair of plain white Nikes, and a conventional canvas, and let them crack on. In terms of creativity it’s an idea as over-exposed as Jordon, but the results are brilliant and speak for themselves (source).
We’re gearing up for the Vauxhall Art Car Boot at the moment, its on the 6th June at Truman Brewery and as you know I have done it before (but this time it’s all about the monsters and will be soooooooo much better). Oh & Pete Fowler is also painting a Vauxhall car live on the day. What I love about this event is that it makes art accessible to all, and I honestly rock the £30 prints from Peter Blake I have collected over the years from this event.
Here is a sneak preview of the prints which will be sold from the Monsterism Island car boot or to be specific my Triumph Herald.
You would have read about the Leinz “Personalities not Policies” election campaign on this blog before but the results are now in and – of course – have been delivered via art. Find out more about one of my favorite artists at the moment here (and one who has given Billbored much loving for which I thank him).
