Everyday

This is the social networking era where you are constantly updated on what someone is doing, who they’re with, where they are and why they’re  there – whether boring or not, whether you want to or not. But the creators of Tumblr blog, Every Day Posters Every Day, aka EDPED, feel that no activity in your life is too boring or mundane. […]

Bodies in Urban Spaces

On the weekends, the suits of New York City’s Financial District are done with the daily grind for a few days, so the streets are mostly populated with tourists exploring Wall Street.

Type of Art

Click-click-click-click-click-ding! The sound of a typewriter. A pretty uncommon sound these days, unless you’re Keira Rathbone. Rathbone uses her vintage 1960’s typewriter and types letters, numbers, and punctuation on the keyboard repetitively onto a piece of paper to create some pretty impressive art. The letters and symbols that are used in place of brushstrokes become unrecognizable and only beautiful enigmatic images are […]

Along with paintings, Lister creates mini-masks, shields and swords, which are all for sale at The Standard shop, each as individual pieces of art, acrylic on […]

Cut it Out

No, these are not stenciled. This is the art of leaf cutting from Nature’s Art in China.

The process of carving is performed by artists using tools to carefully remove the surface without cutting or removing the […]
