This is unusual it’s works of art that have been created inside used toilet rolls.

The tiny scenes such as this one pictured are made by artist Anastassia Elias by cutting into the inside of the cardboard tube whilst leaving the outside still intact.

They must take ages to create, I’m not sure I would have the patience.

This is unusual it’s an artist who creates his pictures using gummy bears. Johannes Cordes takes between 100
and 240 hours to complete each picture and has recreated many famous works of art using the sweets.
Due to the limited amount of colours available he has developed a technique of dying them the required colours before use.
They certainly look impressive.

A Turkish artist has used hundreds
of toilet rolls to create his
latest exhibition.
Artist Sakir Gökçebağ created the
pieces after being inspired by
everyday objects that we often
overlook.
They certainly look impressive.

This is interesting
it’s an artist
who makes
pictures out of jelly beans.
The pictures
take artist
Kristen Cumings
around 50
hours to
create and
use up to
12,000 of
the sweets.

This painting is one of many created by an artist who uses beer to create her pictures. Karen Eland started created pictures using coffee but has recently started making beer pictures. She uses mainly stouts and porters to create the painting and sometimes uses lagers to create the lighter areas. She does admit to sometimes drinking the painting material whilst creating the pictures.

This is interesting it’s some of the pieces created at the first ever European vegetable carving competition which recently took place in Leipzig in Germany. This eagle (left) was created by Russian vegetable carver Vadim Nefedjev from various fruits. The frogs on the right were created using cucumber,s with their tongues and eyes made from pieces of carrot.

If your painting ability is questionable then there could still be hope.
Perhaps you might not make a major exhibit but you may someday
produce something that could go on display in the Museum of Bad Art.
Masterpieces on display there include this reproduction of the Mona Lisa
and are mainly rescued from bins or donated by art critics.
The works must be original, sincere and interesting and they must try to
communicate something, even if we are not sure what that something is.
The museum based in Boston Massachusetts was opened by Scott Wilson
and now has three separate galleries attracting 8,000 visitors a year.
I feel a masterpiece coming on.

This is interesting its an artist who uses pencil sharpenings to create portraits. Kyle Bean saves all his pencil shavings to create the pictures. The shavings are put into place using a set of tweezers with each shaving being positioned individually. It just goes to show you make art of practically anything.
