Created by photographer Kyle Low, Sama-Sama is a set of photographs that will resonate to Malaysians, telling them that they do not need any political schemes, or religious sanctity to be united, when we already are united by the things we do and enjoy together.
Using the flower petals and other natural materials such as shells, seeds, pine cones, rocks and vegetation, Arizona-based artist Kathy Klein creates eye-catching mandalas in outdoor locations near her home. Klein called the pieces Danmalas – a portmanteau of the Vedic Sanskrit words mean “the giver” and “garland of flowers.” Each piece boasts a brilliant sense of geometric symmetry and energetic life which is both awakening and relaxing. You can find more of those beautiful flower mandalas on her site. And if you want to have those healing piece at home, you can buy prints on her site as well.
After her Creativity with Food Art of Plate, Malaysian artist Hong Yi came up another fun project that made bird illustrations out of flower pedals. Following Hong’s tradition of making something from unconventional materials, she started this series when she realized that flower petals – especially gerbera petals – look similar to feathers especially when they are arranged on top of one another, layer by layer. These beautiful flower birds evolved from Dodo to Peacock. Right now, she has created nine birds and she plans on making 5 five more.
These lovely flower girls were created by Elsa Mora and gave them names like Celina, Amore, Lolita, Lizette and so on.
