Kotama Bouabane’s melting word series says everything you’re thinking in you’re head but are afraid to say out loud with the help of some water and a bit of cold air.
It seems like everyone is into collage these days and Geoff J. Kim is no exception. His playful and surreal collages place figures in distant yet familiar situations and lands where everything is not what it seems.
Great animation for Flogging Molly‘s Float. Can’t find much about the directors other than they are Kami & Saul. If anyone has a site for them please post it.
In applying vibrant colors to discarded containers, Tony Feher’s objects become transformed into beautiful and arresting pieces of sculpture. Evoking lanterns or hummingbird feeders, these majestic works have a meditative mood, and, although constructed from manmade materials, present a relationship with nature.

For years Mark Dean Veca has been painstakingly painting ornate and intricate patterns on canvases as well as walls across the US. Using a mix of references that run the gamut from 60’s psychedelic art to 90’s graffiti, Veca has managed to create an alternate world where his signature technique takes 2-D graphics and breathes new life into them.
Primarily known as a painter, Veca doesn’t hold himself to only paint and brush. For over a decade he has collaborated with some of the best brands in the world creating iconic apparel and product illustrations for the likes of Nike, Lucasfilms and Burton; so it should come as no surprise that he recently teamed up with curated online marketplace RARE to create a new signature line of apparel featuring the imagery that he has become known for.
Veca’s first collection of apparel with RARE includes bold color ways and patterns covering every square inch of the garments. You can get patriotic with the Godsmith , Flag II, and Merica II tees. If bending your mind is your thing you can toss on Veca’s The Duke shirt which takes inspiration from Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas. Last but not least lets not forget everyones favorite theme, Money! Ladies can look fresh in the Red Leg$ leggings while the guys can spread the wealth with the Monopoly inspired Penny Bag backpack that has room for all your cash as well as your laptop!
Check out the complete collection on Mark’s RARE shop and learn more about Mark Dean Veca’s artwork and clothing by watching the above video.
British artist Nancy Fouts creates amazing juxtrapositions that combine unexpected objects, materials, and ideas to create playful and surreal images. Her site doesn’t say whether these objects are shown as sculptures or photographs but either would work in my opinion. (via collater.al)

These explosive images are penned using a wide variety of applications and painting techniques that build a surface that can only be truly appreciated in person. Jump.
