It was inevitable for 3D printing to develop into this, a pen that draws in the air. The 3Doodler was invented by Pete and Max out of a desire to have their drawings manifest in 3D, right in front of them. 3Doodler uses ABS plastic, the material used in many 3D printers, and is compact, easy to use and requires absolutely no software.
In Darvishabad, Pouya Khazaeli Parsa, an architect and his artist wife collaborated to design and build a house that takes it’s concept of space from the neither Persian traditional nor Modernism. It is a combination of both.
The house is in the Northern part of Iran, near the Caspian Sea and about 3 hours away from the capital Tehran were the weather is more humid and the landscape greener. The house features a glass lantern on the first floor that makes light explode in the space available.

In an artistic collaboration between Judith van den Boom and Sharon Geschiere, a series of playful designs was developed. The two artists were experimenting with the fluidity of rubber tubes by creating large and small forms. This all took place in Jingdezhen, China (porcelain capital of the world) where their prototypes could quickly be transferred into porcelain. The rubber and porcelain knotted vases, are simply called Knotted, and have the fluidity of rubber but the rigidity and delicacy of porcelain.
After my post on Stephen Wiltshire, I’ve been looking out for artists that create amazing art. Whether it be with pens and an amazing power of recall, or these next artists that create pencil drawings that look like black and white photographs. The level of reality in these drawings is enough to give me a complex. The attention to detail and the way the play of light falls on the different textures makes them look like photographs. Thank God I don’t earn a living drawing, ‘cos these guys would put me out of business. Which are your favourites?
It’s so great to find a place that sells handmade, craft accessories for humans as well as our pet friends. And that is what Arty Dog has, they have handcrafted products made by a wide variety of artists and crafters located around Canada and the USA. Started by Sheila Bredin, the site also donates a portion of the sales to Kiva and The Farley Foundation. All the products are sold in Canadian Dollars and shipping depends on the seller.
Ever walked down a street and stopped in amazement at a piece of street art of graffiti?
I’ve done it a few times & I have been totally blown away. The intricate art the street artists manage to produce are just out of this world. They seem to have a life of their own, some even seem to change every time you seem them. With that in mind I thought I’d pay homage to the unsung heroes & artists of the world, those that aren’t able to exhibit their work in museums or high class art galleries. These street artists do however manage to reach more people than can be packed into a 5th Avenue art gallery.
