Hello again friends! Wow, it feels like I been gone forever ! Sorry for skipping so many days. I felt myself going a little crazy. I’m happy to report that I am finally doing better.
I just came across this amazing artist Hong Yi from Malasia over on Designboom and simply had to share it. “31 days of creativity with food project”. She developed a food art piece all days during the month of march, posting her resulting works on instagram. Hope you like it as much as I did, to see more photos pop over to her facebook.
Wishing you a great weekend !
Today I stumbled upon this innovating art in a post by Design Taxi . I always have a special appreciation for originality and this is something I´d never seen before!
Poland-born, US-based mixed media artist Adam Niklewicz has created a stunning water mural on a red brick wall of a historical building in Hartford, Connecticut.
Only appearing when rain falls on it or if water is sprayed on it, this public art project features an image of Charles DeWolf Brownell’s “The Charter Oak”, a reference to American freedom and independence.
When rainy season is in residents should be able to view this 30 x 45-foot piece of beautiful street art quite often.
I’m always excited to see when someone turns something from discarded material into an object of beauty. So tody I want to share with you some of the work of Cris Jordan an amazing photographer and activist. He´s been feature in all kind of publications. But I thought it was worth talking about anyway, his work is so unique, striking and beautiful.The way he captures people expression is one of a kind. So as much as I am in love with his photography, I am completely impress by his projects and blown away with his photographs of mass consumption. An Amazing way to create green awareness.
FIrst time I came across Cris Jordan was a couple of years ago,when I stumbled with his Midway film a painful but powerful visual proyect of birds killed by ingesting plastic trash from the Great pacific Patch. Midway project definitely was one of the first to open my eyes to the environmental movement and pushed me to become more aware of consumption. Although these has been around for a bit, in case you have not seen it , it is certainly worth seeing it. http://www.midwayjourney.com.
As I mention above I am smitten by any environmentally aware and socially conscious art piece but Cris Jordan ones are more than just a master piece of art. In his Running numbers collection he does large mural-size compositions, colorful versions of well-known paintings. But instead of paint, the colors are composed of million pieces of plastic retrieved from the pacific, estimating the number of pounds of plastic damaging the world. He turns stats into art.http://www.chrisjordan.com/gallery. Make sure to see the rest of his entire collection . He already has some 2013 espectacular new murals.
Happy Monday! I hope you´ve had a good firts week of the new year.

Undoubtedly, many of you have already seen her beautiful work. I could not resist posting some of my lately favorites. In case you hadn’t seen her work you should hop on over right now to check her wonderful blog and Etsy shop.
