"Even if a brand is trying hard to express his core values and identity through a logo , there will be always another side that we see, as a customer, based on our experiences and visions. I tried to 'undress' some famous brands in this personal project made just for fun. I hope you will appreciate not only my Photoshop skills..."

It is always nice to see sense of humor in the art world, and the sculptures of Polish-born, American-based Adam Niklewicz, where he takes everyday household objects and furnishings and transforms them into sculptures, is some of the more playful work we have seen around in quite some time. As curator Steve Holmes writes, "His work evokes not homeland, but rather the absurdity of nostalgia, the futility of trying to be in any place other than the liminal space of the prefixed-American."

What we especially like about the gigantic Rubber Duckie that floats around the world, the creation of Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, is that there is no political message or grand scheme behind it. It was just made to make people feel better. As the artist states, "The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them." We don't know whether to cry or call shenanigans.

We love it when we find kindered spirits of pop-culture debauchery and current affairs humor. Riding sharks, Obama on corgis, Olympic crashes, old WWF matches with Hulk Hogan, Conrad Ruiz jumps around cultural icons with watercolors on large format paper. He even created a San Francisco-themed "disasterpiece" that could be the world's biggest watercolor painting. Great works all around.

As you probably know, or forgot about 15 minutes ago, but today is the infamous 4-20, a full-court press of weed jokes and eating fast food you don't really want. To celebrate the occasion, we turn to witticisms of Ron English, who not only is featured in our May 2012 Public Art Issue, but is also an artist who can create a clever weed advertisement. Enjoy.

We can't believe this hasn't been done before, and at least to our knowledge, it hasn't been done better than UK-artist Kyle Bean's egg shell sculpture that makes an incredibly detailed chicken. Very good work indeed.

This is almost too ridiculous to even comment on, but because it is a Friday, and somehow this look quite comforting, we wanted to feature the creation of Ms. Kayla Kromer. It is called TheHamburger Bed. If you like to sleep on circular shapes, and fake lettuce and cheese, then this may be for you.

We had this image sent to us this morning from a colleague, and we thought it was a good idea to brighten up your property or the neighborhood. Somebody thought it a good idea to add a little color pencil fence to their ordinary fence, and the result is a surprising bit of street art.

Every so often, we like to check in with French street artist, OaKoAk, to see what little gems he has made out of everyday urban objects and city infrastructure. Of course, his work is full of wit and humor, and he has a few highlights that he has completed over the past few months.
