While the great Arcimboldo painted his compositions, the clever Pras uses photography and lithography, and is considered to be one of the most uncommon assemblage artists in the world today.
By anamorphosis, he creates a portrait in relief by piecing together randomly accumulated common objects and photographing it at just the right angle to capture the portrait subject. In the end the photograph is the only remaining trace of this clever collage.
Weird art - it's JUST COOL!
It's always good to have an exercising buddy...
Picasso painted cubist abstracts on canvas. Andy Saunders paints his cars into Picassos. An example? This wild and wonderful 1938 Citroen 2CV that he transformed into a work of art on wheels, naming it "Picasso's Citroën."
"Regarded as the UKs top custom car builder, Saunders has been at the forefront of wild car creations for almost 30 years, having built over 40 individual customs and restored a number of classics. It is, however, his unique, off the wall designs and drivable car sculptures that have earned him the most critical acclaim and attracted global media attention. One journalist described Saunders as an automotive alchemist for he turned base cars into gold. In addition to participation in various European Concours dElegance events and recently completing a pair of special commissions for Hyundai, most recently, Saunders claimed his third Guinness Book of World Records title, this time for the worlds lowest camper van. Created onstage in just three days and before an audience of over 34,000 car enthusiasts, the diminutive 1980 VW Camper stands at just 3.3 feet tall."

Made entirely of vegetables, meat, dairy and fish, Warner's foodscapes look so real you really have to take a second look to descern what edibles you are actually looking at!
"Foodscapes started out as personal project where I wanted to highlight the idea of implied design within the natural world, the qualities within organic forms,' said the Kent UK based 44-year-old. 'For me, the forms, shapes, patterns and structures of everything from DNA molecules to fingerprints, from tornadoes to spiral galaxies all point to a much bigger picture."

"I chose the potato to portray human faces because of the many striking parallels. Not only is their skin porous like ours, but their skin texture and color is very similar, and like us, they come in different sizes, shapes and forms. Potatoes grow, live, and then decay, mirroring the ephemeral existence and fragility of our own human nature."
So I wonder what these faces turn into when they start to rot? For now they look JUST COOL to me!
It's a noble concept. But try riding a bike pushing a lawnmower through uncut grass. It just doesn't work.
A JUST COOL idea though!
