How is it made?

Alright,  I am going to give out a blog post challenge that is going to be worth 3 blogs to the first person that figures out everything I want to know.

 I want to know how the pictures below were made.  What mediums are being used and how the technique is being used.  I also want to know who the artist is.

If you can be the first to find all of that info, I will give you credit for 3 blogs.  Good Luck.


Have you ever just wanted to create something out of nothing?  Have you ever been so bored you decided to build something out of staples?  What?? You haven't thought of building a city out of staples like this guy?

Peter Root decided to just create his own city, out of office staples.

So what do you think of this city?  Is it creative, crazy, or just plain cool?  Would you have the patience or be willing to put in the effort?  What would it take to get you to create something like this?

Photo or Drawing???

I recently came across the art by Dirk Dzimirsky from Germany.  He takes very emotional photgraphs of people and turns them into large scale very emotional photorealism drawings and paintings.

I want to know what you think of his artwork.  Do you think it is a photo or a drawing?

Does this intimidate you or inspire you?

New look to leaves

Do you ever stop and really look at leaves?  Do you ever imagine different images you could put on leaves?  Did you ever think about turning an leaf into a piece of art?  Well one artist has.

Would you have the patience to do this to a leaf?  Will you now stop and look at leaves in a new way?

Peaked interest

South of Wales you will find a place where they have transformed a strip-mining area into a beautiful new park and attraction.  After strip-mining the area for years one local artist came in and shaped this beautiful horse and planted the grasses to make it seen from the air.  It is now becoming a popular tourist attraction.

Do you think this is an attraction you would be willing to see?  Do you think this was a smart idea or would you have created a different shape?

Leap of Art Faith

Earlier this year the Met in New York had an artist put in an installation that is basically a leap of faith.

SO I am wondering if you think this is art?  Would you be able to stand under it while people are bouncing above?  Would you want to be one of the people who tries to walk across it?
