John Bisbee has spent nearly 30 years welding and forging 12-inch nails into amazing works of sculptural work. He hammered, bent, welded or fastened those nails together and create geometric sculptures, organic installations, and unwieldy objects. When asked why choose nails as medium, Bisbee shared with American Craft “Only nails, always different. A nail, like a line, can and will do almost anything. What can’t you draw with a line? The nail is just my line.” To check more of his work, check johnbisbee.com.
Want see something mind blowing? Take a look at the incredible painting made by Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves who have a fun way of twisting your perception and causing you to question what in his paintings, if anything, is real. The most obvious feature of Gonsalves’s painting is there is no clear boundary between the multiple stories Gonsalves tries to tell, which forces the viewer to jump back and forth and give a kind of optical illusion.

Shot by Brussels-based photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte for the creative agency Norvell Jefferson in order to market Netherlands-based powdered milk producer Friesland Campina Kievit’s new creamers, this amazing photo set freezes extraordinary instants of an acrobatic dancer leaping and twirling amid dynamic clouds of powder. To acheive the marketing goal “Friesland Campina Kievit’s new sensational creamers are about to take over the world.”, a fully integrated marketing campaign was created by Norvell Jefferson. Individual particles of powder form incredible shapes around the dancer’s body as she pulls off impressive feats of balance and nimbleness. Suspended in midair, frozen in motion, the model appears as graceful and elegant as a bird spreading its wings and taking flight. Even though I am not quite sure how to those shots help to connect with the creamer powder, the photos are stunning by itself.
