Artists Gilles Cenazandotti and Thierry Lede recently created a new group, Clear Art Planet, whose main mission is to go around the world cleaning up beaches. The awesome pieces above were made with the items they cleaned off of the beach in Cap Corse Corsica. I adore these pieces, they are so beautiful! It’s amazing though that those are just the items from a beach in Corsica! Probably not even close to all of them, in fact… It gets me thinking of all the stuff on the beaches of the world…
You can visit Clear Art Planet’s site, but be warned it’s in French!

These beautiful drawings are by Hanna Müller, who has a really cute story on her blog about how she started drawing: When I grew up I did some serious attempts to write my feelings in a diary, it started off good until my brother ferret out where it was hidden. It didn’t matter how much I tried to hide it, he always found it and spread my most private thoughts to everyone who cared to listen. So I stopped writing my feelings down and started drawing what I felt instead. My pictures became my diary and still are. It feels nice to draw them away. So sweet…

I just spent way too long looking at every painting on Josh Keyes’ site, and after I post this I’ll probably go back to look some more! I can’t put my finger on what I like so much about his work, but I really really do! His acrylic paintings are strangely beautiful, and I love the subject matter and message. If you check out his paintings, try starting at the bottom! His older work is at the bottom and it’s cool to see the work develop.
This interesting building is, rather fittingly, the offices of Spanish Selgas Cano Architecture. Naturally, they designed it themselves. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I kind of like it, I like that you can see the scenery around it anyway, but it seems maybe small and narrow… What do you think?
Either way, an interesting concept!
I can’t stop admiring these rather surreal pieces by Tyson Skross. After moving to rural Switzerland from Texas at the age of nine, he became intrigued with the odd natural phenomena that he often witnessed. This sort of altered reality and intangibility is what he tries to bring to his work. So strangely beautiful! See more here and here.
