This video featuring Athens-based graffiti writer iNO perfectly captures his ability to turn quick gestures with a spray can into something that almost looks as if it was produced with aid of a camera. Many of the artist’s interior and exterior works incorporate the idea of two faces or figures merging, either morphing into each other or growing outwardly. Watch the video above to see it all come together. (via colossal submissions)

Korean sculptor Young-Deok Seo has been busy since first appearing here back in 2011. The artist has continued working almost exclusively with welded chains reclaimed from bicycles and elsewhere. Seo most recently exhibited at SODA Gallery in Istanbul. A statement from that show:

Seo Young Deok’s work aims to reflect the disease-like contamination we experience caused by materials in our society, he hopes to reveal the amount of suffering it places on the modern-day human. To express this, he utilized metal chains to create the modern man. Chains were made by our civilization and created through mass production, yet it is also just one accessory, one part in a massive piece of machinery. He considered each part of the chain a human cell and used the chains to create a human figure. Thus, this being’s form has been created in contamination by materials in our current world.

You can follow more of his work over on Facebook. (via my modern met)

New York artist Jason Hackenwerth, known for his organic and biological forms made from latex balloons, just unveiled his latest work at the Edinburgh International Science Festival in the Grand Gallery of the National Museum of Scotland. Titled Pisces the sculpture is the artist’s interpretation of the legend of Aphrodite and Eros: in Greek mythology, Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and her son, Eros, escaped the fearsome monster Typhon by transforming into a tightly woven spiral of two fish, a figure which later became a constellation called Pisces. The spiraling form is made from 10,000 balloons which took three staff members nearly six days to blow up, after which Hackenwerth and his assistant Leah Blair wove carefully into this three dimensional structure. Pisces will be up through April 14th, 2013 and you can see much more of it on Flickr.

GoodBye Horses is a 2009 installation by artist Sandrine Pelletier at galerie Rosa Turetsky. The three galloping horses were created using suspended wool coated in black latex and tar, resulting in a stark contrast between the chaotic lines of the figures against the white gallery walls. From some angles the horses are unrecognizable, but even when brought into focus appear to be haphazard, almost violent illustrations. See much more on her website.

Kinetic sculptor Bob Potts creates beautiful kinetic sculptures that mimic the motions of flight and the oars of boats. Despite their intricacy the pieces are surprisingly minimal, Potts seems to use only the essential components needed to convey each motion without much ornamentation or flourish. There is very little information online about the artist, however blogger Daniel Busby managed to get a brief interview with the 70-year-old artist last year. If you liked this, also check the work of Dukno Yoon . (via devid sketchbook)

Although we just covered the work of Federico Uribe a few days ago in this space, the artist also shared with me this additional work which I thought warranted its own post. Titled Tapete (Carpet) the work is a large carpet made from thousands of perfectly placed computer components: fans, cables, keyboard keys, motherboards, mice, and other parts. I recommend not wiping your feet here. Photography by Pipe Yanguas.
