Mosaics, portraits and abstract art is what you will find while walking on the most colorful stairs in the world. Some artists around the world sometimes, express their creativity in the most amazing places. Street art has always skillfully managed to beautify the cities, so it should never be too much in any form, as long as it is set in the correct places. Thus, these scales displayed in the gallery below, not only represent an ideal spot through which artists express perfectly their creativity and imagination, but also they are real refreshment areas in the city where they are located.
The most interesting thing is that in order to see the effect of some of these scales, it is necessary to observe from a particular perspective. Small and fast conversion idea can give a completely new look to old and damaged asphalt, just like what happened to these scales worldwide. Street artists have managed the right way to beautify the urban monotony and dullness and to raise a smile at passers-by.

CARVING PAPER: THE SURPRISING SCULPTURE OF LI HONGBO

The “block” from which each sculpture is carved is composed of thousands of sheets of paper, each glued (one at a time!) in a precise and delicate pattern of stripes. When lifted or manipulated by gallery staff, the pattern relieves itself, effortlessly expanding like a delicate accordion or alien honeycomb.

The smooth surface is not painted or coated in any way. Hongbo lightly sands the finished sculptures to create a fuzzed edge that visually dissolves into its neighbor under pressure of gravity. The yellowish interior is a result of the filtered light.

If you can’t make it to the gallery in person, I encourage you to search the internet or numerous iPhone videos of these in action. The movement is insane. My favorite video however is below. It’s an incredible peek at the process itself, from the meticulous gluing to the final sanding.

ECO Friendly Printer Does Not Use Ink….

Printing With A Pencil Stub

So you don’t want to join  pencil stubs and make a long pencil. No worries, there is  another alternative, how about using them to print on paper. Yes, like a printer that uses pencil to print your documents. Traditional don’t you think? I feel the concept gets even more radical because it proposes the use of eraser to erase off mistakes! Do I hear chronic printer addicts  scream in delight; no more cartridge woes!
