There is something so wonderful about destructing for the sake of creating. Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto, also known as Vhils, has created these amazing large scale portraits for a series entitled ‘Scratching the Surface’ by chipping away at the surfaces of abandoned buildings.
Be sure to check out the video below to see Alexandre in action.
Artist Jim Dingilian‘s works optically befuddling artwork made from smoke and a glass bottle. Dingilian says, “The miniature scenes I depict are of locations on the edge of suburbia which seem mysterious or even slightly menacing despite their commonplace nature. The bottles add to the implied narratives of transgression. When found by the sides of roads or in the weeds near the edges of parking lots, empty liquor bottles are artifacts of consumption, delight, or dread. As art objects, they become hourglasses of sorts, their drained interiors now inhabited by dim memories.”
