I love origami, the results look so delicate and beautiful. Although Japan is considered to be the home of origami, Spain has its very own origami master - Gonzalo Garcia Calvo. Some of his designs are so intricate and beautiful that it's hard to believe that they're folded out of

A slightly strange art material this – bacteria! Yet scientists show that they can even recreate Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” with it. They can create various other shapes of surprising sophistication. From depictions of neurons to a map of Manhattan to detailed jellyfish, nothing is impossible if you’re willing to

In 2012, Rachel Dein showed the owners of a flower-shop a plaster-cast tile she had made from a bouquet. They were impressed, and soon the UK artist began receiving commissions to make more of these modern “fossils.” It is an interesting process that Dein uses: she presses flowers into wet

I love these classic movie posters that are composed of the words from their transcripts. Created by Glasgow-based artist Robotic Ewe, from afar, they looked like the pixelated versions of the original movie posters, but on a closer look, it reveals the thousands of words that were individually coloured to

I find these images somewhat disturbing but also fascinating. These are body-painting subjects created by Chilean artist Jeampiere Dinamarca Poque. Topless models are the usual prey of such artistic savagery, and he paints the women as if they were ripping themselves apart. The image is made more realistic by the

I can’t believe the detail and skill that has gone into creating these amazing paper portraits. Using an X-acto knife and tweezers, Korean artist Yoo Hyun hand carves intricate cut-paper portraits that feature the likes of movie stars, world leaders, and musicians. Up close, Hyun’s pieces look like abstract designs,

I’m a bit of a neat freak; I like things clean, organised and tidy. So I totally get these photographs of everyday objects unified in theme and colour. These perfectly neat colour gradient arrangements are created by Emily Blincoe, from Austin, Texas. While her brother had tried to teach her

Apparently these are paintings – absolutely no way, its definitely a photo, I do not believe it is an actual painting, nope… … But amazingly it is. These are incredibly hyper realistic depictions of exotic cacti blooming across enormous canvases. Created by Korean artist Kwang-Ho Lee, the paintings measure up
