Not all the photos are real, especially with the popularity of those photo editing software like Photoshop. However, some fake-looking photos might actually real, like the ones below. Some of them are the creation of our magic mother nature, some of them are the product of unexpect coincidence and some of them are works intentionally designed by artists. In any way, these photos are 100% real and even they looks like quite photoshoped.
Welding, you probably will never connect it with art anyway, becomes an unexpected art form in Engineer Richard Lauth’s hand. Using his imaginative expertise and amount of other skills, Lauth created psychedelic works that display various animals, insects, and even pop culture characters. His portfolio boasts characters like Star Wars’ Yoda, the grinning Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, and an adorable minion from Despicable Me, amongst many others. It is not easy to create a figure like these, especially to achieve a rainbow-like effect on these metal, welders must maintain proper heat control and pressure. If you like this welded artwork, don’t miss Lauth’s Instagram. And if you REALLY like them, you can go to his Etsy shop where Lauth has some of his work for sale.
Two years ago, we have featured the works of U.S. artist Susan Beatrice, who created steampunk animal sculptures from old watch parts, and today we will bring more spectacular works from her. With the environment in mind, the New Jersey-based artist Sue Beatrice, aka All Natural Arts, made those lovely little creatures entirely out of discarded and found objects (gears, sprockets, vintage pocket watches, etc.) You probably will be amazed how many animals can be created from those discarded materials, dragon, cat, mouse, rabbit, crab and so on. All those effort is made to encourage reusing instead of disposing and thereby accumulating waste on a planet that has limited resources. See more of Susan’s work on her facebook page.
Titled “Bottom Feeders”, this amazing series by Mary O’Malley series depicts cups, teapots, plates, saucers and bowls that appear to have been recovered from the sea-bottom, covered by flora and fauna over the years and wholly consumed by coral, seaweed, crustaceans, and tentacles. However, these remarkable pieces were actually created by O’Malley by hands, the teapots and other dishes are thrown and hand-built porcelain, to which she adds sculpted wildlife coated with red iron oxide. Here are part of the series, and you can discover more on O’Malley’s site.
