Yusuke Asai is the artist behind this extraordinary mural painted right into the walls of a classroom in India. Yusuke is part of the team of artists sent by The Wall Art Project to Niranjana, a school located in Bahir (East India). The Wall Art Project is a Tokyo-based non-profit organization whose goal is to bring art into schools in far flung areas like Tibet and India. Yusuke is best known for making absurdly beautiful works of art with pretty much anything he can get his hands on. A trait which came in handy in East India. The extraordinary wall painting you see up there was made with seven different types of local soil, cow dung (don’t ask why), straw, and water. The wall art disintegrated after several months but I bet it’s beauty lasted in the minds of those children long after it completely washed away.
These vertigo-inducing installations were created by Heike Weber using nothing more than her imagination and a felt-tipped marker. The process, which can only be described as a labor-intensive, transforms an ordinary room into a three-dimensional work of art flooded with flowing, patterns and lines. Viewers can’t help but interact with Heike’s work in a cafe in Prague where she recently completed a project she calls “Bodenlos”. Bodenlos is a German word which literally translates into “loosing the ground under your feet”. Heike is currently based in Cologne, Germany.
Au Vieux Panier is a French hotel that annually sets aside five rooms to be re-conceptualized by artists and designers. One of the artists they commissioned is the internationally acclaimed graffiti artist Tilt. Entitled “Panic Room” half the hotel room is clean, white, and spotless while the other half is crammed full of layers of loud graffiti. The demarcation between the pristine and the painted is so sharp, you’d think it was Photoshopped. For this work of art, Tilt asked two of his friends Tober, Grizz, and Don Cho. Tilt travels the world spreading the gospel of art through graffiti. He’s been to the U.K., Singapore, and the Philippines.
