THE BEST Art

Two-Handed Drawing

Two-Handed Drawing

In tribute to The Shawshank Redemption, portrait artist Xiaonan Sun draws both Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins simultaneously, with both left and right hands. Sped up for time, it’s still impressive.

Protéigon

Protéigon

Animator Steven Briand (aka BURAYAN) created this trippy stop-motion short while doing a two-month internship at Partizan. We only wish all internships were this creative and productive.

PVC Pipe Sculptures

Korean artist Kang Duck-Bong creates these sculptures which look like they got hit with Photoshop’s “Wind” filter, using only pieces of PVC pipe, painted with urethane paint.

Nicolas Cage Adventure Set

Nicolas Cage Adventure Set

For the person who thinks he has everything. This hilarious playset comes with reusable vinyl stickers of Nic and two glossy backdrops. Declaration of Independence not included.

Billboard Chair-o-Plane

Billboard Chair-o-Plane

You know those theme parks rides where you sit in a swing and spin around? This isn’t one of those. It’s just a turning billboard, and some crazy “artists” who decided to make their own amusement park.

Anamorphic Drawings

Hungarian artist István Orosz takes anamorphic drawing to another level by hiding images that can only be seen with the help of a special reflective object in seemingly ordinary drawings.

Located at the Seaham Hall Spa outside of Newcastle, UK, this awe-inspiring fountain by William Pye has a continuously spinning vortex in the middle of it, which can be viewed from the side or above.

Tribute to Drive

Tribute to Drive

(Spoilers) An animated fan tribute to Nicolas Winding Refn’s already awesome Drive. If animators Tom Haugomat and Bruno Mangyoku want to make a feature-length version, we’ll buy a ticket for sure.

The Beauty of One Second

The Beauty of One Second

An assemblage of one second clips, capturing the wonders of the world and life in general. Part of a short-film competition to promote Montblanc’s chronographs. We love it when advertising is art.

The Arctic Circle

The Arctic Circle

A year-long labor of love for Kevin Parry, this stop-motion animation tells the tale of a lonely man who gives up his simple life for the easy way out. Even Tim Burton approves.

Curator Tape

Instantly turn a plain white wall and some cheap prints into “real art” with this 2″ wide gilded frame border made from tape. Each roll provides 25 meters (appx. 82 feet) of frame for your gallery.

Googly Eye Street Art

Googly Eye Street Art

Perhaps inspired by Mr. Walken, artist Timm Schneider goes around streets looking for things to slap eyeballs onto, humanizing otherwise inanimate objects, and putting a smile on our faces.

Guido Daniele: Hand Art

Guido Daniele: Hand Art

Guido Daniele specializes in hand and body painting. Here are some of his trompe-l’Å“il animal hand art. They’re so good even when you’ve broken the illusion you’ll still appreciate the painting.

Sand Vibration Art

Sand Vibration Art

Watch as musician Kenichi Kanazawa turns vibrations on a table covered with colored sand into an interactive work of art as it hits its resonant frequency. See more patterns emerge here.

Legendary Tiger Hero

The most epic art you’ll ever find on Etsy. Choose from scenes like “Van Damme Screaming his F–king Face Off,” “Cthulhu Awakens and Totally Shreds a Sweet Ass Guitar Solo.” and “Shark vs. Narwhal.”

Bike Wheel Zoetrope

Bike Wheel Zoetrope

Katy Beveridge wanted to know if it was possible to create a zoetrope-style animation effect and capture it on a rotating bicycle wheel as the bike is in motion. The answer: a resounding yes.

Address is Approximate

A lonely toy takes a journey through the great outdoors, thanks to a little help from his friends, his owner’s iMac, Google Street View, and a sense of imagination from The Theory.

Fleet Foxes Animated Video

Fleet Foxes Animated Video

Sean Pecknold’s animated clip for The Shrine/An Argument off of Fleet Foxes’ Helplessness Blues is beautifully done. Are we the only ones who secretly wish animals really looked like this?

XXIT

XXIT

With impressive visuals like these, it starts out looking like a Blade Runner clone, but Stargate Studios short film eventually turns into an action-packed thriller on the streets of San Francisco.

Paper People

Paper People

Artist Nick Georgiou uses discarded newspapers and books to create humanoid sculptures and paintings, each with a personality all its own. Each one is sort of a memento to the gradual death of paper.

Poly

Poly

There’s not a bezier curve to be found in this iPad app by Jean-Christophe Naour, which helps you make polygonal artwork using only your fingertips by tracing and color sampling underlying images.

Keep Drawing

Keep Drawing

Doodling is one of mankind’s ultimate forms of personal expression. Korea’s Studio Shelter reminds us in their short film that no matter what might come your way, Keep Drawing.

ROSA

ROSA

After a long wait, Jesús Orellana’s animated science-fiction short ROSA can now be seen in its entirety. A visually stunning short film, especially given its budget of… zero dollars. A true labor of love.

Anthropomorphic Animals

Anthropomorphic Animals

Berkley Illustration is the same team that gave us Strelka the Space Dog’s portrait. Their other portraits are not based on real animals, but they’re awesome nonetheless. Badass cheetah is badass.
