Artist Andrew Lewicki wants to raise the hackles of incredibly sue happy Louis Vuitton make you an incredibly overpriced breakfast. He’s created the Louis Vuitton Waffle Maker. Featuring, as you might imagine, the classic Vuitton pattern, the waffle maker is teflon coated and is perhaps just what you need for a designer breakfast. Magnifique!
I thoroughly enjoy a solid cup of coffee. Given the sad state of my stomach and it’s intolerance for acidity, I have to go through some lengths to have a cuppa. I’d be more willing to go through the effort if I could drink out of The Cookie Cup. Created by Enrique Luis Sardi for Italian coffee company Lavazza – it’s a sugar icing lined cookie shaped into a sweet drinking vessel. Nice!
Artist Sayaka Ganz was deeply impacted as a child by Japanese Shinto beliefs that all objects and organisms have spirits, and was also taught that objects discarded before the end of their usefulness “weep at night inside the trash bin” (how awesome is that?). As her artistic side developed, she infused her artwork with these beliefs, using discarded and reclaimed household objects as a medium for her sculptures. Ganz says:
I only select objects that have been used and discarded. My goal is for each object to transcend its origin by being integrated into an animal/ organic forms that are alive and in motion. This process of reclamation and regeneration is liberating to me as an artist.
Building these sculptures helps me understand the situations that surround me. It reminds me that even if there is a conflict right now, there is also a solution in which all the pieces can coexist peacefully. Though there are wide gaps in some areas and small holes in others, when seen from the distance there is great beauty and harmony in our community. Through my sculptures I transmit a message of hope.
These pictures are only a small representation of her work. Check out the link below for a better idea what she’s capable of.
If you’re at all into reading, Fictitious Dishes should provide an interesting twist on some classic novels. It’s a photo series by graphic artist Dinah Fried, which recreates meals from a few books almost everyone should know. Check out some of the photos from the characters point of view.
Last time we visited upon Artist Ron English he had released his Fat Tony The Tiger vinyl
figure. He’s been working in his shit-stirring lab again and come up with something else fun. It’s a Fat Captain Crunch. He’s officially titled him Cap’n Cornstarch, and just like
Tony The Tiger it’s another vinyl figure. One wonders if that peg-leg is a Diabeetus related injury. Only Wilford Brimley really knows…
Do you need to smile today? Even if you didn’t need to, artist My Dog Sighs will most likely ensure that you do.
My Dog Sighs uses crushed cans he finds on the street as canvases for his Canman series. The first in the transformation from can to canman is a fresh coat of stony grey paint – which serves as skin tone. The artist uses each cans individual quirks and blemishes to reveal their own unique personalities. Some cans are happy, some look quite sad, some are human, and some are animal.
Once completed, the cans are placed prominently back on the street where they wait to be discovered by passersby.
