I can’t really say I’m the artistic type; I couldn’t draw a person to save my life. Hell, I couldn’t draw a tree, but I do appreciate the people who, with their God given talent and patience improve our world and upon our days with their projects. Which is why I decided to go down this list of 15 unique artistic expressions around the world – sculptures, paintings, and some new things I really can’t define. There’s some talent, right there!
15. Expansion by Paige Bradley
Somewhere in New York, and I’m guessing you can easily find it, is located this interesting piece of art. I just can’t put my finger on it, is it lit from the interior or was this picture just taken at the right moment? I’m thinking the latter, and I have to say this is absolutely amazing. I totally get what the artist was trying to tell me and I’ll try to keep that in mind.
14. Wire Fairy by Fantasy Wire
I guess you just can’t capture imagination, or at least that’s what I understand from this. UK residents must be proud of this artistic expression, since it’s absolutely beautiful; I just can’t get over how vivid is some people’s imagination. Incredible, isn’t it?
13. Politicians Discussing Global Warming
They didn’t admit it at first, but politicians are now discussing global warming; That’s all they’re doing, and as this weird but realistic piece of art is suggesting, they’re gonna keep at it until there’s no breath left for shouting. Sad, isn’t it?
12. Break Through From Your Mold By Zenos Frudakis
A friend of mine, who works in Radio, always said: “tomorrow be kinder, better than today by at least one second”. I guess his words were interestingly transposed into this wall-art, so to speak. Keep on breaking your limits and stand out proud, at least that’s what people in Philadelphia, USA, are saying.
11. Giant Clothespin by Mehmet Ali Uysal
I’m guessing the Earth didn’t have a very good day when this happened. I don’t quite get the message here, so I’m hoping you’re gonna help me out; I suspect this is the artist’s way of saying that our planet was left hanging out to dry. Do you know the expression?
10. Diminish and Ascend by David McCracken
I can’t help but think of Led Zeppelin and their Stairway to Heaven. Superb song, and so is this; I think the people in Bondi, Australia, have something to think and dream about. There’s always a difficult task, achieving your goals and climbing the ladder, but these stairs should help.
9. Les Voyageurs
I dare you to tell me what do you think about this one. I know what I’m thinking, but it’s best kept for myself, for the time being; I promise to tell you about it later, after I’d had the chance to explore your imagination for a while. If you don’t get it, feel free to ask someone in Marseille, France.
8. De Vaartkapoen
I have to confess I don’t know what the name means, but this piece of art in Brussels, Belgium really makes me smile. I’ve heard of Justice being blind, but I’ve never head of the Police tripping. Or have I? Well, either way way this is a true story.
7. Sinking Building
Is it a coincidence that the building sinking is a library? I think not; just earlier today I heard on the news that some libraries have decided to close their doors to the open public, for a simple an obvious reason: no one reads anymore. There’s TV and the Internet, and books are becoming obsolete. Sure, cutting down on cutting trees is a good thing, but not to read in the 21 century? Where has the world come to? I guess we know how the people in Melbourne, Australia, stand.
6. A Scene From The World War With Real-Size Statues
This one is actually a piece of history located in Turkey. This sad sight gives everyone a tiny part of the World War and its incredible horrific experience. I just hope society has come a long way since then, and that we will do anything in our power to avoid such military conflicts to ever start again.
5. The Unknown Official
I guess all officials carry with them an immense burden, and since we can’t really know all their names, this sculpture is welcomed to remind us that they’ve had it tough; and always will. I guess all is well that ends well, when everyone plays their part. Have you playing yours, like the people in Iceland have?
4. Bliss Project by Marco Cochrane
I guess the supreme artistic way of expression is the woman, and she was created by God – the ultimate artist and supreme creator. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t praise her and admire her inner beauty in unique ways, such as this one.
3. Glass Sculptures of Viruses by Luke Jerram
I’m not sure why would anyone create sculptures of viruses, but I guess informing the masses is a good excuse as any. Aside from the topic of the artist, these glass pieces are quite impressive to be honest. I dare you to gift someone something similar and find out for yourself if they get it, if they know what it is!
2. The Vanishing Sculpture
I love optical illusions, and this one is pretty sweet. The artist managed to create a 3D optical illusion, that recreates a sculpture – if you look at it from the right angle, that is. I guess that’s the point – anything is beautiful and every problem has a solution, if you look at it from the right perspective.
1. Disassemblage by Damian Ortega
Now, this is more like LEGO to me – which I love, by the way. Have you wondered passed an object and think how it works or how it was created? I guess this artist managed to answer that with a single image; I guess pictures are worth a thousand words, anyway. Right?
