The histories that Paco Pomet paints are absurd, bizarre, surreal, and humorous. Just when you think you are looking at a simple realistic painting, you notice that the man in the background has a woman's legs and is posed a little too sexy for his early 1900's facial hair. The Grenadian artist just posted a bunch of new works that were painted in 2012, and we got a kick out of each one.

Do you like to color coordinate your clothes, shoes, art supplies, or pantry? Well what if you color coordinated your meals? Eating just green or purple colored food sounds weird, almost repulsive. Yet Fabienne Plangger twists minds immediately with the collaborative project of color composed meals in Monochrome Breakfast...

Christina Hess is an illustrator whose work focuses on nature, animals and people, most outstandingly this series of portraits depicting famous historical figures reimagined as dogs, cats and other furry replacements. This series was designed and released in the fall of 2013 on Amazon and iTunes.

Vilnius, Lithuania photographer Tadao Cern brought participants into his studio, blew a gale force wind right into the center of their face, and then took pictures of them as they looked like mutants. Seriously, that had to be the most fun you could ever have with other helpless humans.

We have been quite obsessed with the paintings of Nathan James on the site over the past few months, probably because he has a whole new batch of pop surreal paintings that just opened at KK Outlet in London entitled Punchlines. Jake Chapman of the famed Chapman Brothers notes of James' work,"Like all the best art, Nathan James’ new paintings challenge the idea that beauty is a universal term."

We are always looking for fun stuff to post on the site, to explore the random possibilites of art. Well, we have seen really amazing things done with food art in the past, but sometimes if you have some fruit, bread, and some cheese, you can be like Norwegian photographer Ida Skivenes and take that to a whole new level by making classic painting and pop-culture icons with your breakfast snack. Magritte with apples? Nice.

Maybe this is because we are super excited about the new Arrested Development season, but anything with a banana right now is on our radar. Cleon Daniel has created this hybrid of pool and miniature golf with the Banana Pool Table, complete with yellow felt and 4 holes instead of 6. We say there is a new beer pongish game to be had here....

From German design agency, Jung von Matt: "We designed special bowling balls together with famous spraygun artist Oliver Paass that look like cut-off heads. For more than three weeks he made detailed 360° layouts that were sprayed on standard bowling balls. In several German bowling alleys we swapped the standard balls for these special ones."

Well, we should have known. We, or I should say I because I am speaking only for myself, used to think maybe I shoudn't tell the masses that I own a cat, but seeing that Dali, Warhol, Matisse, O'Keefe, Picasso, Kahlo, Weiwei, Klimt, Klee, Gorey and others all loved their cats, I no longer feel ashamed. Its a cat union party up in here. Thank you Flavorwire for grabbing this collection.
