It’s lots of fun to simply take things apart, but Oakland-based artist Jeremy Mayer takes things apart and then transforms them into entirely new things. That’s not just fun, that’s awesome. Jeremy disassembles old typewriters and reassembles their parts to create full-scale, anatomically correct sculptures of humans and animals. Jeremy uses a process known as “cold assembly”, which means no soldering, welding, or glueing is done to attach the various typewriter parts to each other.

Visit Jeremy Mayer’s website to check out more of his awesome sculptures.

Strange and Unusual Tombstones

Everyone has a different view of death. Some fear it. Others count down the days. Regardless of your particular view on the matter, you probably have an opinion on how you would like to be remembered. Whether is was the people lying below these tombstones or their beloved family members, someone had to make the decision on the above tombstones. It’s hard not to imagine what some of them must have been thinking.

Amazing Digital Art

Born in Poland in 1972, digital artist Adam Martinakis currently lives and works in in Cannock, United Kingdom. His computer-generated artworks employ aspects of photorealism and surrealism to explore the human condition which he says results in a “mixture of post-fantasy futurism and abstract symbolism”.
