Geometric Street Art Made From Wool Yarn

On his website, the street artist Spidertag describes his work simply by writing “It´s all about nails + pure wool + geometry + abstraction + streets + abandoned”.  It can hardly be described more accurately.  Using nails and wool yarn, Spidertag installs geometric abstractions in beautifully lonely locations.  The work, as pure abstraction, doesn’t appear to reference any figurative object (except perhaps spiderwebs).  Though maybe burgeoning trend within street art, this type abstraction and material sets Spidertag’s work apart as understated and unique.

I love these playful photos that escalate the idea of hand puppets to new and surprising heights. If you’re not familiar, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vanoodh Matadin are a photography duo from the Netherlands known for their high fashion photography and artworks. This series is coquettish/seductive, masked/revealing all at the same time.

Norihiro Sekintani

Japanese artist Sekintani takes all the dirty thoughts you’ve had whirling in the cesspools of your mind and makes them into these crazy horror-movie collages. He’s definitely gone there and further: melting childrens’ faces, mutated breasts with Murakami-esque googley eyes and a hide-and-seek Pikachu peeking out of female genitalia. Yup, he’s definitely gone there.

This artist was brought to my attention via MAFIA-HUNT.

Hybrid Creatures Take Over the Streets In The Perplexing Work Of Alexis Diaz

Alexis Diaz - Painted Mural

Erupting skulls and beautifully powerful hybrid animals take over the streets in the work of Puerto Rican artist Alexis Diaz. His work looks more like illustrations at first glance, due to their brilliant line work and convincing detail. However, each bizarre creature is much larger than life, climbing up each wall and towering over the viewer. Mixing a concoction of different animals to form entirely new species is one of the more recognizable trademarks in Diaz’s artwork, along with the repeating, iconic skull. Normally a mark of death, Diaz’s skull often spring forth life, as many of them hold birds that sprout from the cranium. Vivid colors and expressive detail show off this street artist’s skill.

The imagination seen in Alexis Diaz’s work is both incredible and intriguing, as combinations of animals come to life on the walls of the streets. In one mural, an elephant sports tentacles like that of an octopus, while in another, a bear and a buffalo become one creature. In one of Diaz’s most immense and striking murals, a hybrid snake and eagle circle around their prey of a skull with vessels of a heart. The animals rendered in Diaz’s work create a whole new space in which to live, as well as a whole new kind of animal. His handiwork can be seen sprawled all over the walls of the world in places such as Arizona, Puerto Rico, Slovakia, France, Austria, and Mexico.

Bang! Bang! Studio and the Weather

Bang! Bang! Studio, based in Russia, collaborated with IT company Yandex to create an interactive weather application for the iPad. Utilizing the studio’s rich variety of illustrations, 70 works are animated to keep your daily check of the weather fresh. Best part? App is totally FREE and available in Russian and English. Reviews suggest the size of the app makes it a bit slow, but the pictures are still nice to look at, and I like the idea of adding some art to a daily activity without losing functionality.
