#16. Lisa Hoke’s multicolored upcycled mural

Hoke-vimeo-blues-longshotI had to re-blog this post by Global Art Junkie as it is so beautiful. Call it recycling, upcycling, repurposing, trash-art, what-have-you, but this brilliant (pun intended) sculptural installation by Lisa Hoke is something to wonder at. I love color. I recently did a “look/see” post about Rhode Island artist Tom Deininger‘s work, including his incredible trash-art sculpture… These artists both share a passion and vision for turning discarded, reused materials into works of color and beauty. Lucky for us. Simply amazing. Enjoy!

nunes-popcornWhat fun.  The made-with-food art of 65-year-old Victor Nunes from São Paulo is capturing attention on the web.  He doodles and draws around everyday items like popcorn, nuts and cookies.  See his Facebook, here.
