Vienna-based designer Andreas Scheiger created this fun series of faux taxidermy heads using a bunch of found bicycle seats and handlebars. The pieces can serve as fun art objects, or as functional hooks for holding bags, coats, and even other bicycles. Several of them are for sale over on his website, or you can see how he did it and maybe attempt your own. (via Fubiz)

Update: Several of you have mentioned that these are pieces appear to be a modern interpretation of Picasso’s Tête de taureau.

As a way to temporarily break free from a routine of personal and commercial projects, photographer Romain Laurent (previously) challenged himself to create a looped animated portrait each week since last September. He says the bizarre and often laugh-out-loud experiments are a low-pressure way to experiment and be creative without expectations. “As far as the intention of the series, it’s a way for me to explore a hybrid medium, experiment and being spontaneous while still sticking to a short weekly deadline. There isn’t a common concept between each loop, I just ‘go with the flow’ and see what comes to my mind each week.” You can see many more loops from the series over on his Tumblr.

For over two decades street artist SpY has been creating humorous and thought-provoking interventions in urban spaces. Already established as a graffiti artist in the 1980s, SpY next turned his attention to the endless palette of objects and materials available in public places to create clever, non-destructive installations. From his website:

SpY’s pieces want to be a parenthesis in the automated inertia of the urban dweller. They are pinches of intention, hidden in a corner for whoever wants to let himself be surprised. Filled with equal parts of irony and positive humor, they appear to raise a smile, incite reflection, and to favor an enlightened conscience.

The artist was extremely active this year with new works popping up in his native Spain, Switzerland, France, Italy and Germany. Above is just a quick glimpse of his well-documented interventions, you can see much more on his website. (via Lustik)
