Installation Artist Chiharu Shiota’s Tangled Web of Keys at the 2015 Venice Art Biennale!

It’s been a while since I’ve come across an installation art piece that’s moved me to posting. But, Artist Chiharu Shiota‘s “The Key In The Hand,” is just such an installation artwork. I thank writer Kate Sierzputowski and the website Colossal for introducing me to this piece. Here is an excerpt from her post… “The […]

Revisit: Love Me Some FIRE! Molotov Art of Russian Artist Radya Timofey!

Working on “Eternal Fire” 2. A series of portraits of heroic WW2 fighters celebrating Russia’s victory over Nazi Germany. Art by Radya Timofey.

Fire! Fire! Fire!! Being a slight pyromaniac myself, I couldn’t resist posting about this artist. The 23 year old Russian artist Radya Timofey has quite a collection of street art credited to his name already, but “Eternal Fire” has to be one of his best! Since doing this installation, he’s already created 2 more but […]

Bicycle Chain as Art? I Can Die Happy! The Work of Artist Seo Young Deok!

Artist Seo Young Deok I’ve always been fascinated by chain. It’s solid yet flexible. Smooth but unforgiving. It has a certain rugged beauty to it. Well, aparently, Korean artist Seo Young Deok has the same fascination. Actually, his fascination is one of obsession. Deok creates beautiful human body sculptures with chain (not just bicycle chain, but the bicycle […]

Revisit: The Stunning Glasswork of Judith Schaechter!

The Unbelievable Work of Judith Schaechter! Stained Glass Artist Judith Schaechter may make the some of the most compelling stained glass work I’ve ever seen. I’m reposting this because it is still, to this day, one of my favorite finds since I started this blog. This is another instance where I’ll not bother waxing poetic. […]

Commuter Slide at Dutch Railway’s Overvecht Station!

Odd and quirky. That’s how I define this art installation at Dutch railway station Overvecht Station. It’s a slide. It’s a slide for commuters. It’s a slide for adults. It’s a fun addition to an area that’s so business and professionally oriented. Though it’s weak as “art” it’s makes up for it in spirit. It’s […]
