Cao Hui Gutsy sculpture, Resin sculpture with human/animal innards oozing out at seams

Cao Hui: Gutsy Sculpture

I can’t really say that I ‘like’ these sculptures by Chinese artist Cao Hui, but they certainly are hard to ignore and impressively executed. Cao Hui, based in Beijing, is known for his shockingly realistic sculptures of half-flayed animals. More recently he has applied this technique to the unexpected: furniture and objects. These resin and…

Italian artist Giuseppe Colarusso, aka Mister Solo, redesigns ordinary objects as playful, nonsensical items in his series titled Improbabilitá, translated as Unlikely. Clearly inspired by Fluxus, Dada, and the works of Marcel Duchamp, the artist presents a whimsical array of everyday objects whose core components have been substituted with opposing elements.

Surrealism. I love the idea of bringing up together the technology and how it has affected nature.I think this is what the author was trying to convey by putting a sad and dark tree inside the light bulb.

Juliette Bates is a French photographer who lives and works in Paris. In this haunting series of photographs, she captures the beauty of the dark arts in a way that combines little pieces of life and death in each frame. There’s something simply eerie yet bright, delicate, and uplifting going on here and I love the duality of it all. The images have a certain Hitchcock quality to them, which are not only foreboding in its references to death... "Shoes Are Made of Skin"

Kyle Platts: Keith Haring for Computer Arts

Illustration: Kyle Platts' portraits of artists and designers for Computer Arts

"It's about time a transvestite won the Turner Prize" is what Kyle Platts imagined Grayson Perry uttered when he clasped the prestigious prize money in his masculine grip. Yeah, Kyle Platts imagines a lot of things, which is perhaps why Computer Arts (now "www.creativebloq.com":http://www.creativebloq.com) commissioned him to illustrate the careers of famous artists and designers for their site. What's so great about Kyle's method of attacking this brief, aside from his wry humour, is the…

Lezley Saar: Madwoman In the Attic - The Female Gothic in 19th Century Literature: this image immediately reminded me of Jane Eyre; her experience is interlaced with the real and the supernatural. Unexplainable events drive the story forward as much as does the steadfast nature of Jane's character.

This fantastic contraption, called the ‘Routefinder’, showed 1920s drivers in the UK the roads they were travelling down, gave them the mileage covered and told them to stop when they came at journey’s end.    The technology – a curious cross between the space age and the stone age – consisted of a little map scroll inside a watch, to be ‘scrolled’ (hence the word) as the driver moved along on the map. A multitude of scrolls could be fitted in the watch to suit the particular trip the…
