Ayumi Shibata is an artist from Japan, whose specialty is the traditional Japanese paper cutting. Through her work, she wishes to draw attention on the relationship between humans and the environment, and on the way we care about nature and, more precisely, the world. She thus produces paper sculptures representing cities and natural landscapes with many details, which she sometimes places in glass containers or in books. She uses white paper to express yang and light, and the shadow cast by the shapes of her cuts represents yin, the part of shadow.They dwell in the sky, in the ground, in the wind as well as in various objects such as old trees, big rocks, and man-made creations.

A series of nostalgic summery scenes from retro summers. Pictures from the 50’s or the 60’s, when the summers were great. But were they? Was the world really better back then? Or we just tend to forget the problems of the past?
Summery scenes created from parts of vintage ads and ephemera. This is the image that we have from the past. An image always brighter, always distorted from the advertising, the cinema, the nostalgia.
This is an ongoing self initiated project.
2 or 3 layers of mosaics made out of pieces from ads and other printed ephemera from the distant past. Mainly imagery from the 30s till the late 70s have been used here. They are mounted in 2 or 3 separated layers of plexiglass. Ideal to decorate the walls of motels and summer houses. Those who are waiting for our future summers.

Colored, invasive, sticky … With his little monsters, Andrew Rae sees the smartphone as a portal between the virtual and the real world, from which unknowns forms of life escape. To achieve his series “Phone Buddies”, the London-based illustrator associated his talent to the one of photographer Ruskin Kyle to fix his creations in the real world. The photographer  immortalized people in London streets who kept their eyes on their smartphone’s screen, before Andrew Rae added his monsters on the images. Pop and colored, their collaboration invites us to reflect on the link we have with our screens.

When Pumpkin Carving Becomes an Art By The Pumpkin Geek

Pumpkin carving is one of the exciting things to do for Halloween. If most of the people are happy to succeed to carve spooky face, Alex Wer (known under the name of The Pumpkin Geek), mastered it and made it his art. The difference between people and him, is that his pieces last forever as it is made on a “faux” pumpkins. A perfect way to use it all over again for years, each Halloween. On it, Wer represents movie hero/villain, sports legend, musician, actor/actress or even child’s portrait. His “Orange Empire” as he calls it, started in 2009 “quite by accident”, as he explains.

My wife asked me to carve a pumpkin for her office Open House […]  Since it was a few weeks until Halloween, my options were to carve a real pumpkin and have it died within a week, or try my hand at craft pumpkins which would last.  It was a simple logo and script and was a big hit at the Open House.  Soon I had about 35 orders for business logos and even children’s portraits!  Not even knowing what I was doing, The Pumpkin Geek was born ». A perfect treat for Halloween.

If cakes are already awesome themselves, an incredible Italian pastry chef made them look bluffing. We have already shown his work previously, it is today with new creations that Matteo Stucchi is highlighted. Owner of the Instagram account I dolci di Gulliver, he creates and presents miniature worlds with his pastries. This way, you can enjoy the visual aspect just as much as the taste. Among the different scenes he presents, we can see tiny Lilliputians (from the “Gulliver’s Travels” book), in action. The last creation posted in his Instagram, is showing them blowing away leaves on an orange colored pie, to remind autumn.

Color Light Prism Installations in Washington, DC By Hou de Sousa

Color Light Prism Installations in Washington, DC By Hou de Sousa

Prismatic is the engaging sculptural installation by architecture and design studio Hou de Sousa, which is currently at the Senator Charles H Percy Plaza in Washington DC. Described as a “kaleidoscopic experience of light, color and space”, the project features nine geometric forms in black steel frames, wrapped in fluorescent cords that create wavy and repetitive patterns. Moving through the sculptures gives the effect of a surface in motion. The work is lightweight enough to be transported easily (the installation was assembled in Brooklyn) but sturdy enough to withstand any weather changes it encounter along the way.

Through his art, Trevor Smith proves with his talent and his creativity that crochet can be a modern way to do pieces of art. Based in Australia, the contemporary artist uses woolen yarns and a clever composition of colors to bring his ideas into life. To do so, he uses a base made with foam, rubber or polystyrene and then covers it. Thus, the public can admire, among others, his crocheted meals such as a lobster, a cheese plate, or a strawberry cake. Smith also recreates retro objects like a cassette player, a mantle clock.
