Tired of people getting all worked up over the so-called brilliance of some nonsense quote a wannabe Banksy slapped onto the side of a junior high gymnasium? Well, British street artist Mobstr is too. To voice their criticism, they also took to the walls. Using the same popular styles and techniques, Mobstr cuts out the corny and replaces it with funny. If these works don’t inspire other street artists to step their game up, nothing will. Check out the art critique art! 1.) Mobstr 2.) Mobstr 3.) Mobstr 4.) Mobstr 5.) ...
Everyone Has Watched Dominoes Fall Before… But This? I’m Totally Mesmerized.

Everyone Has Watched Dominoes Fall Before… But This? I’m Totally Mesmerized.

Culture
I used to love the "idea" of dominoes. I'd set up a handful, and watch them magically knock each other down, succumbing the gravity. I even liked to do little tricks, whether trying to go down some stairs, or land one on my sleeping dog ;) But I lacked the patience to make them bigger, and better. And I especially couldn't convince my parents to buy hundreds of them. So when I saw what this guy did with not hundreds, but tens of thousands of dominoes, you can imagine how I felt. "He lived my dream!" Oh well, he truly is "king of the dominoes!" A YouTuber named Hevesh5, a professional domino artist and aspiring filmmaker, designs and builds intricate domino setups and chain reactions for your entertainment and for commercial projects. ...

You've seen amazing works of art before on the Internet. Magnificent paintings, incredible photography, even a few more cat videos than you care to admit. (That's art, right?) Well you've never seen anything like this. Tumblr artist Iaam-g has created some of the most fascinating and intricate landscapes that you'll ever see - ALL from the smallest of our favorite foods. From frescos painted on M&M's, to gothic scenes shaved into almonds, I don't know whether that rumbling in my stomach is awe or hunger ;) Tumblr Tumblr Tumblr Tumblr ...
This Kitchen And Backyard Took Five Years To Create. Wait Until You See Why.

This Kitchen And Backyard Took Five Years To Create. Wait Until You See Why.

Culture
Artist Liza Lou spent five years creating a life-size kitchen and backyard out of tiny glass beads. Everything in the two spaces is made of brightly colored glass beads known as "seed beads" and often used for making jewelry. The food, the water in the sink, the furniture and fixtures, and all 250,000 blades of grass in the backyard are made from seed beads. Lou used millions of beads to create these scenes, and used nothing but her hands and a pair of tweezers to place each one in the right place. She started working on the kitchen in 1991 and completed in 1996, and the backyard began in 1999.  Liza Lou The kitchen, complete with newspaper, food, drinks, and a sink full of dishes. ...

This Artist Took His Childhood Doodles And Recreated Them In Spectacular Fashion. It’s Pretty Trippy.

Culture
Children are like very small adults with over-active imaginations and under-developed motor skills, so it's not uncommon to find them scribbling out their ideas on construction paper. Most of the time, what kids want to draw never ends up looking like what is actually drawn... OR DOES IT? Most adults assume that the messy images that end up on the paper aren't what kids meant to draw. Dutch artist Telmo Pieper proved that sometimes childish doodles look more like finalized (and terrifying) works than we might originally think. He revisited some of the drawings he made as a child and "finished" them with his adult skills. The final result is borderline nightmarish. Originally, Telmo drew these years ago. Telmo Pieper ...

When You See What They’re Using To Make Art, Your Skin Will Crawl

Funny
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); The makers of Raid roach spray just did something artistic, and it's quite possibly the weirdest project of all time. Walking into an art gallery, you never know what you're going to see. Just ask these unsuspecting patrons. Instead of pencils or paint, the creators who made these works used hundreds of dead cockroaches to create a stunning series. That's kind of morbid, isn't it? Poor little guys. That being said, it's kind of beautiful when you take a step back and just look at these pieces for what they are. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/bug-spray-ads/

Marc Da Cunha Lopes is a French artist who loves biology and science fiction. In his series of photographs entitled, 'Vertebrata' the artist explores both in the coolest fashion. These skeletons, which appear to be creatures from some unexplored moon in the Guardians of The Galaxy universe, are actually just blown up skeletons of birds, monkeys, cats and other critters. He set them in abandoned households and other locations so that in Da Cunha's mind it appears as though "they are looking for those who made them." This is way creepier than I thought it'd be... ...

These Scenes Are Completely Edible, But Way Too Cute To Actually Eat.

Here at ViralNova, we have a thing for people who make art out of food, probably because it combines two things we enjoy: cool-looking things and eating. We've covered some artists working with food before, and now we're bringing you more. (You're welcome.)  Stay-at-home mom Samantha Lee knew from firsthand experience that getting kids to eat can be tricky. She wanted to encourage her older daughter to eat independently while Lee tended to her younger child. To do this, she created little scenes out of food to make the meals more appealing. Because it's the Internet era, she began posting pictures of her creations online. The result was more than 300,000 Instagram followers, as well as features in various publications and advertising contracts. Lee's creations featur...
