Using postcards that he obtains from restaurants and culture houses in Denmark, artist Amir Zainorin creates collaged postcard murals of famed leaders that currently reside on the face of major currency. George Washington, Queen Elizabeth, and Mao Zedong get the treatment in a very odd, but rather creative series of portraits from the Malaysian-born artist.

If you ever find yourself traveling around Denmark, and get yourself to the island of Zealand, you will be surprised to see a mural by Spanish muralist, ARYZ, freshly painted on a brick building. As photographer Henrik Haven told us, "Before his piece for the Galore festival, the Spanish street artist traveled an hour away from Copenhagen to Næstved.. the piece is part of Næstved Youth School of Art and decoration project Næstved Art City."

Aryz is currently in the process of adding color to some bare brick in Copenhagen, Denmark. The artist is participating in one of the many street art festivals going on around the globe, this one being the Galore Festival. From here, it looks like an image of a man getting choked by a woman, although it could be a passionate hug from behind? Completed mural coming soon!

We love how this video starts, and how 17 minutes later, we love LEGO even more than we do everyday. You have probably seen this before, a LEGO brick, but the story of the now 80-year old brand is something we should all know. Especially when animated and made by the good people of LEGO themselves.

We have covered the work of Denmark's Huskmitnavn on the site and in the magazine before, and he is always busy with numerous projects and exhibitions going on at once. Currently, there is a large exhibition of Huskmitnavn's work at the Kos Museum in Denmark, spanning the many styles and mediums that the Copenhagen artist is known for. Nothing makes you smile like a good Husk sculpture. Remember, Huskmitnavn = RememberMyName.
