Liquid Bricks

June 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This wonderful video arrived in my inbox from Benjamin Boré who created this perfectly executed liquid brick installation as part of a collaboration at Raum à La Box in France. Meant to “question the harshness of the city” the idea is really quite simple, to embed a water-filled pouch beneath the city streets, and the effect is pretty charming, especially for the kids clamoring all over the thing. Music by Mansfield Tya. Thanks Benjamin!

Ridiculously detailed spray-paint and stencil portraits by Kris Trappeniers

June 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I just discovered the work of Belgium-based Kris Trappeniers who describes himself as a “paper sculptor”. His delicately cut stencils are among the most complex I’ve ever seen, the twisting, curving line work creating these amazing portraits that are unbelievably finished with spraypaint.

(click thumbnail for full panorama)

This wonderful 200 foot (63 meter) mixed-media mural reading “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will always save me” was recently installed in Adelaide, Australia by street artist ABOVE who fell while working on the installation, breaking his scapula in two places and suffering a concussion that required two hospital visits. Luckily he wasn’t working alone and a number of other talented artists helped to complete the project including illustrator and wood-carver Chris Edser, designer Tristan Kerr, public artist ANKLES, and Joshua Fanning. A big thanks to photographer Jonathan VDK for providing his images for the post. Definitely click the panorama thumbnail above to see the completed piece. (via unurth)

Spotted this on Wooster this morning, though unfortunately it’s uncredited. Hilarious nonetheless.
