Strolling around the interweb on this Saturday morning, we came across this fantastic photo shoot by Danish photographer Mads for music label/club, Fabric. According to the Mads' bio, "Today He works with a wide range of commercial, style, fashion, editorial and music clients. Mads photography encompasses clean, crisp, fresh and beautifully understated portraiture to more vivid imagery imbued with 'vibrancy, attitude and a healthy dose of colour'." And he smashes glass well.

Carl has also developed a technique using a tube wrapped in paper to create his drawings in a moving car! Watch a video after the jump...

Three striking portraits grace the side of this orphanage in Denmark courtesy of the Los Angeles-based artist, El Mac.

Last week we posted an incredible sculpture by James Dive of the Glue Society where he compressed an entire mobile amusement park, rides, games, and prizes, into a 4m x 4m cube. This week we take a look through some of the other sculptures on view at Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark. The event features sculptural works from 64 artists from 22 countries. We are hoping that it's success means more sculpture festivals around the world!

Our good friend and contributor Henrik Haven just sent some teaser shots of Nychos's new works in Denmark for the Viborg International Billboard Painting Festival. Nychos, Horfee, Blade and John Howard were all doing new works this past week in the small Danish town, and it looks like a school got a touch of the Weird. Summer is here, and the European continent is getting new public works!

James Dive of The Glue Society recently squished, crammed, and compacted an entire amusement park including rides and prizes into a 4-meter cube. Entitled Once, the piece is on show at Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark. Up until July 1st, "The project is about the finality of a missed moment," says Dive. "Creating [it] was undoubtedly the most violent process I've ever embarked upon."
