After getting a new and bigger apartment a while back, Thomas Krahn needed something to hang on the large, white walls. Being a student he didn’t have the money to buy the art he liked. Instead, he bought a canvas, paint and tried painting something himself.
The doodles from his elementary school notebooks featuring huge, flying fruit, astronauts and weird orbs quickly found their way back into his art alongside his love for the Danish countryside.

As you can see from these pictures, Cristoforo Scorpiniti is an artist who believes that good art should be visible at every time of the day. Far from making traditional glow-in-the-dark pictures however, Cristoforo (otherwise known as Crisco) adds a unique element to his artwork by making them transform with the changing of the light. It’s a simple yet highly effective technique that allows him to get the most out of his canvas.

64-year-old artist Stan Herd transformed a field on the Eagan, Minnesota, Thomson Reuters campus into Van Gogh’s 1889 Painting “Olive Trees.” Herd’s first ‘earthwork’ was created in 1981; this latest project took six months, covers 1.2-acres, and involved weeks of mowing, digging, and planting. It was sponsored by the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and can be seen from the air near the Minneapolis airport.

Coffee Leaf Paintings Created With Morning Coffee Leftovers

Coffee painting is becoming more and more common, but Indonesian artist Ghidaq al-Nizar has taken a new approach by painting his coffee watercolors on leaves and by using coffee grounds in his compositions. Al-Nizar calls his art #zerowastecoffee because he usually paints it with what’s left of his morning coffee, making sure that none of it, not even the coffee grinds, goes to waste. He also creates latte foam art.

Shadows And Mist: I Draw Mystical Creatures With Graphite

For its way to reveal the texture of the paper, as well as the material on itself, the graphite is the ideal medium to achieve the atmosphere I want to bring out in my artworks. It allows a full and obvious light and shadows play. It’s a restless backward and forward movement between light and shadows, one existing only in relation to the other. The merging blacks and grays offer countless landscapes, discreet but real, awaiting for one’s imagination to get into. My inspirations find their...

The oral traditions of myth had perpetuated through the ages because at the core of these stories are vital bits of humanity. They are pieces that resonate with me, and they inspire me to try to create visual reflections that I can hopefully share and create resonance with my viewers.”

The album tells the story of an unknown heroine who grows up with the wights (mythical creatures), protecting the land from harm.

25 Mind-Twisting Optical Illusion Paintings By Rob Gonsalves

The beautiful and mind-bending illusions in Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves’ paintings have a fun way of twisting your perception and causing you to question what in his paintings, if anything, is real. Most of his stunning paintings have an unclear boundary between the multiple stories they tell, which forces the viewer to jump back and forth between them – like an optical illusion that changes every time you look at it. Gonsalves’ interest in art began at an early age, which is why he...

If embroidery makes you think of samplers full of minute flowers and sweet sayings, think again. (Not that there's anything wrong with those--I love embroidery samplers.) But embroidery, that traditionally tame craft of proper ladies, gets an intense, artistic update thanks to artist Cayce Zavaglia. Trained as a painter, she developed a way to use embroidery to create portraits of her friends, family and fellow artists that have surprising depth and detail, and are incredibly lifelike.
