Wang Yue, a senior at Dalian Industry University, uses her paintbrush to turn ugly tree holes into lovely views in Shijiazhuang, capital city of Hebei Province.
Wang Yue calls the tree-hole paintings “meitu” which means “beautiful journey.” The paintings on the trees have brightened the city during the dull, grey winter.
If you’re having a rough day, just remember that we live in a world where yarn-bombing exists.
There’s a telephone pole near my house that got yarn-bombed. Nothing fancy like these, though.
In Olsztyn, Poland.
Great job - ingenious method and a perfect likeness!

Captured Lightening by Ben Hickman
About the work:
Captured Lightning sculptures are branching patterns of internal fractures that have been permanently captured deep inside various shapes of crystal-clear acrylic. Technically known as Lichtenberg Figures, they were created by carefully trapping and discharging millions of volts of electrical charge inside pieces of clear acrylic using a high-energy particle accelerator. These complex, permanent figures are formed when the trapped charges suddenly escape in a brief, lightning-like discharge. The intensely hot sparks leave behind permanent “fossilized” tree-like chains of microscopic fractures and tubes that reflect light like microscopic mirrors. Captured Lightning sculptures are fully discharged and are completely safe. They combine the technologies of particle beams and polymer physics with the natural beauty of fractals to create unique creations of scientific art.
Saw some of these at WorldCon. So very very cool.
Scott Wade paints on dusty cars and he did a stunning job with painting Hylas and the Nymphs by John William Waterhouse.
instead of using actual spray cans…some artist are just cleaning dirt off of certain areas to make their masterpieces. and they are calling it reverse graffiti. kind of brilliant.
I like this.
