ice cream paintings othman toma 4 600x784 Ice Cream Paitings by Othman Toma

Othman Toma believes that desserts should delicious and pretty. Not content with the usual medium of oil paints, charcoal and watercolor, he set about creating awesome paintings with his favorite frozen treats. In the hands of an amateur, I’d have called it a waste of perfectly good ice cream, but seeing how good Othman’s artwork turned out, sacrificing a couple of chocolate pops is perfectly justifiable. Othma is currently melting more ice cream to paint with in Baghdad, Iraq.

Nikita Sergyshkin is the artist and photographer from Minks, Belarus who is responsible for these beautifully serene photographs. I love the skewed geometry of her photographs. She can take the most boring and ordinary building or landscape and turn it into a compelling piece of art.  The black and white photographs somehow give off a dreamy feel to the whole series. I can’t wait to see more of her work.

Beneath Your Feet – Underground Photography by Jaromír Chalabala

photography jaromir chalabala 08 538x1000 Beneath Your Feet – Underground Photography by Jaromír Chalabala

Jaromír Chalabala braved the complex and danger-filled underground sewage system of Prague in the Czech Republic. I must say, for a sewage system, it’s surprisingly well-lighted. A fact that helps Jaromír take some of the most dramatic pictures of a sewage system ever. The surprising well-kept tunnels does have mud and silt (at least I hope it was just silt), but thanks to the excellent lighting system (and Jaromír photographic talents), they’re not too creepy. Nevertheless, it’s not exactly a place you’d want to visit and thanks to Jaromír’s, you won’t have to.

Hattie Newman has a lifelong obsession with structures. As a child, she would draw towns and villages and make civilizations out of LEGOs. Her desire to create and design led her to dream of being an architect. Her affair with paper towns started while she was studying at the University of West England in Bristolfor her degree in Illustration. She wanted to bring 2D illustrations to life and found that paper and cardboard was the cheapest medium to work with.

Chase Jarvis is a visionary American photographer who recently went on a jaunt to Dubai and the images he came back with are epic. According to him, he has made it his life’s goal to be as creative as possible towards everything he endeavors. He describes himself as a lover of photography, film, music, and crows – for some reason. Chase is thankful for the boatload of awards he has won for his work but he can’t help but wonder if the jury was rigged. He said: “I was transparent long before it was hip to be so, and I believe deeply in teamwork, community, and collaboration.”. Also, he has a hankering to swim the English Channel.

Chloe Giordano’s miniature embroidered animals have been making the round in the internet lately. Their size as well as the level of detail that Chloe has put into them has impressed even the most jaded internet skeptic. Also, she does it all freehand. She creates her own patterns and works out for herself the best way to make the tiny animals come alive. According to her, it’s the planning stage that takes up the most time. The actual sewing takes between two to three days. Chloe is currently based in Oxford where she’s available for projects and commissions.

For What It’s Worth – Images by Dillon Marsh

forwhatitsworth037 For What It’s Worth – Images by Dillon Marsh

Mining is tedious, hard, and dangerous. Most people go through life unaware of the the environmental impact of this necessary activity. Photographer Dillon Marsh sought to quantify mining as an industry “that has shaped the history and economy of a country so radically” by putting together his “For What It’s Worth” series. The series features a sphere of the metal prominently placed in the crater left behind from the mining process. He also made a couple of images of diamond mines where the size of the diamond mind is laughably small compared to the scar the mining process has inflicted on the landscape. You actually have to zoom in to get a good look at the diamond.
