China-born, Kansas-based artist Hong Chun Zhang has a fascination with hair, whether large format charcoal drawings of hair that extend to the floors of a gallery, or her Hairy Object series that puts hair in absurd situations, the work is both well-rendered and fascinating. Some people feel repulsed by a clump of hair, and Zhang embraces it.

You write famous novels on typewriters, not make portraits. Oh wait, you make portraits now, too? Like some sort of analog ASCII art, London-based Keira Rathbone has figured out a way to manipulate a typewriter to create these very well-constructed portaits and "drawings." Super Impressive.

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 shown you the body art of Chooo-San before on the site, but we love some of the "back" work the artist has created. Although we are a little weirded out by the dude that lives in the girl's back, we appreciate some of the simpler works like you see here.

Detroit, Motor City, The “D”, whatever you want to call it. Artists for sometime now have been taking advantage of the post-apocalyptic landscape and making new, positive things happen there. Here is a trailer for a new film by Christian Fischer that follows various members of The Weird crew as they explore and paint the decay.

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.

New York-based artist Bradley Hard injects each individual bubble of a piece of bubble wrap with acrylic paint to create these portraits. As the paint is injected into the bubbles, excess paint will drip down the back. He surgically removes these from the backside of the plastic to reveal an impression of the work.
Erotica // Monday, February 25, 2013
Can we please just give it up for the Internet one time?? If it wasn't for this infinitely vast void of knowledge, bad photo-shopping, bizarre trending jokes and some of the strangest imagery I've ever seen, life would be, well, exactly as it was before. Thank you for allowing me to witness things that may not have been possible if you didn't exist. Thank you Internet. Thanks for the weird erotica too.

Entertain your Super Bowl party/Academy Awards guests (or guest, maybe you keep it low key) with something a little more arty this year. We suggest going LEGO, as in LEGO ice cube blocks in yer whiskey and... er, in your Coke or ice water. Make 10 at a time, build yourself a good evening.
