Coastal Blueprint Posters

These coastal blueprint posters measure 12″ x 12″ and depict both nautical animals and structures.

The first shows a lighthouse, sailboat, and anchor, and the second an octopus, seahorse, and crab.

True, they’re more map-like than blueprint-like, but, either way, if I had a beach house, this art would be on the walls.

Now You See It…

This mysterious “Lucid Stead” house is an art piece by Phillip K. Smith III, nestled in the stark California desert, near Joshua Tree.

A study in reflected and projected light, it feels like a dessert mirage.

Imaginary Architecture: the Artwork of Filip Dujardin

The Belgian artist Filip Dujardin specializes in something he calls “imaginary architecture.”

It’s fascinating:  he takes an image that would otherwise be nondescript and something at which we might not otherwise take a second glance, and he changes it into something spectacular and unique and fantastical.

His artwork is fun to look at.

It gives you something to ponder.

And as a prior student of architecture, it sparks fire within my imagination.

Street Art in the Sahara

The Spanish street artist Mesa traveled to the Sahara for an event called Artifariti 2011.  He participated in this art project while living with Saharawi families in refugee camps.

His artwork is amazing, full of emotion, and striking against the stark desert background.

Architects are Artists, Too

LIKEarchitects is a design studio that reinterprets everyday objects to create art.  And architecture.

At the same time.

It was formed in 2008 in Portugal by Diogo Aguiar, João Jesus, and Teresa Otto.  Their first project was a temporary bar constructed of illuminated IKEA storage boxes.  Glowing boxes…..  It’s architecture, but it’s art, too.  Not just easy on the eyes, this type of architecture enlivens all the senses.

And it looks cool, too.

Check out some of their awesome work:
