Amazing Gutter Art

Most of us would never think that a gutter could be a piece of art. Here in Brazil, some people are using these parts of urban scenery to bring a little bit of color to the commomly grey sidewalks. They are Anderson Augusto and Leonardo Delafuente from 6emeia. The 6emeia project was created and developed by the artists Anderson Augusto, also known as SÃO, and Leonardo Delafuente, also known as Delafuente. The duo live in the Barra Funda neighborhood of São Paulo where they began the project with the purpose of changing and transforming daily life. The duo's objective is to modify the means within which we all live, proposing a new way to view things by reflecting upon themes generated through creative and unusual works. Such modifications are made by painting storm drains, light posts, manhole covers and any other object which makes up the urban scenario. And it's fantastic that they don't just paint anything, random faces and all, but they even make some pieces inspired by classic paintings and movies. And of course, they're like ninjas... they adapt to any gutter situation. Hope you all enjoy these! Cheers. ;) For more information and images visit their website at http://www.6emeia.com/ Text Ad: Sign up with a+ braindumps for getting incredible online HP0-S26 courses.

Mid Century Modern Art Inspiration

Vintage stuff is always a good source of inspiration. Posters, ads, stamps... but how about matchboxes? While surfing on Flickr, I found these on a group called: "the Mid Century Modern - Sticker, Label + Stamp Club group icon", and I loved it. There are Russian , Hungarian, and other countries' matchboxes from the WW II period. Cool look, sweet design. Man, they sure knew how to design crazy matchboxes. I guess this are pretty good. "Kill a couple enemies, have a smoke." I SO need fire while I'm taking a shower. I guess it reads "Freakish Experimental War Pets" or something close to it. Have a smoke, get cancer, lose weight. Reminds me of Franz Ferdinand. Don't ask me why. Now i'm just getting confused. A kid having a shake? Oh, c'mom. Be creative. That's too obvious. Haha. I don't think these matches are supposed to light regular cigarettes. "Trippin' far far away". Althought my favorite one is a sticker, if it was a matchbox, it would say: "Use these matches... or DIE". You may visit the complete set clicking here.
