Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa-1 Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa-2

The Great Sleeping Bear” was originally created in 2007  by Eiko Ishizawa. Now it’s finally available for purchase.

“Because the sleeping bags will be made entirely from hand – including the fake nose and teeth – availability is going to be extremely limited. In 2014 Eiko only plans to make seven of them, but each one will be numbered so they can be cherished as pieces of art”.

$2,350 for the adult version, or just $2,050 for the kid’s sized model…
If this is a must-have, buy one here.

Glittery Portraits by Georgia Theologou

Georgia Theologou – known as Georgia Th - is a self-taught Greek artist who paints hauntingly beautiful portraiture. Created by combining traditional and digital media, Theologou’s intentionally limited palate and trademark visual rendering gives both a soft lushness and a harsh reality to her subjects.

Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit

I have to say, that this completely gross me out! And yet I find it interesting. And odd. And  disgusting. And, like, trying too hard to stand out. I seriously get sick to my stomach just looking at it.

Performance artist Millie Brown uses her body in an uncomfortable way in order to create bright splashes of color on canvas – and sometimes clothes and people. She mixes colors into soy milk before regurgitating the milk onto her preferred canvas, akin to the drip-color style of Jackson Pollock.

Responses to her work have varied, ranging from laughing to crying, declarations of love, and even death threats, but Brown maintains that art is supposed to inspire powerful emotions in people.

“I have an inherent desire to push my own boundaries within my art… By creating art from the very depths of my own physical being I am able to challenge people’s perception of beauty, expressing raw elements of human nature and in turn challenging myself both physically and mentally”, Millie Brown says.

The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage

The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage 1 The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage 2 The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage 3 The Longest Way by Christoph Rehage 4

This video by  is actually 4 years old.

Christoph writes: “In 2008, I walked through China – one year, more than 4500km. All the while, I let my hair and my beard grow. This is the resulting video.

I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany. Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the Gobi desert, and then decided to stop walking for now.

All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi was completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.

I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful.

Obtaining the necessary visa for a trip like this was not very easy, hence I had to go back to Beijing a few times to resolve some issues.

This is not a strict “1 pic a day” video, because I wanted to make it a bit more alive by adding some additional movement. Sometimes during the film you would follow me turn around, or something would happen in the background. I tried to capture these moments to make the video more interesting.”

Big thanks to my friend Lis for finding this.

These are pieces by artist Brett Kern. They are detailed ceramic objects that at first appear almost indistinguishable from inexpensive inflatable toys. Kern mimics the tell-tale wrinkles and forms of air-filled toys like dinosaurs and astronauts – all made from clay.

Bare Bears by Deborah Simon

These bears are so awesome!

Artist Deborah Simon‘s series of Flayed Bear Sculptures combine taxidermy, science and embroidery. Her three unusual bear sculptures have faux fur partially pulled back to reveal the anatomy underneath.

Deborah created the project both prior to and during her residency at New York’s Sculpture Space and describes the process as follows:

“The bears play with ideas around stuffed toys, taxidermy and classification. They especially interest me as bears are the ultimate stuffed animals; both the iconic plush toy and the prized taxidermy specimen for hunters. Most of all the sculptures deal with vulnerability; the vulnerability that the animals face from environmental degradation, conflicts with people, suburban sprawl and poaching. I particularly find the dichotomy between the defanged, declawed childhood toy and the fierce reality of a top predator fascinating.

The bears – polar, grizzly, black, and panda – are about toy size and seated like a plush toy bear. Their fur is removed on the body, leaving a linen skin, as if they’d been flayed or like undressed porcelain dolls, with the hard sculpted fur covered head and paws connected to the soft linen body. At Sculpture Space I started the black bear, creating the foam body, sewed the linen and fur, sculpted the head and mapped out the embroidery of the spine and nervous system.”

Such beautiful and intense black and white mono prints – made by Romanian artist Mark Francis Williams. They almost look like portraits of ghost.

“My work explores states of impermanence and the resulting aesthetic. It is a response to the experience of living in Bucharest – a city of disparities and contrasts”Williams says.
