Friday Roundup: Mind-Blowing Art

Another week, another Friday roundup. If you don't know what that is, three Fridays ago I started a series where at the end of each week I will pick a theme and then post a selection of Internet finds related to that theme. Pat yourself on the back for making it through the whole week, relax and enjoy this week's roundup.

Today's theme is mind-blowing art. The level of creativity and skill of some artists is oftentimes nothing short of astounding. I don't even consider myself an art-lover, but this is something else. See what I'm talking about:

1. This super inspirational artist from New Orleans creates art just by using one piece of charcoal and gliding and stretching her body on a huge canvas. You can see the whole story here.



























2. Daniel Dancer creates large scale art on the ground, to be seen from the sky. He created an exhibition called "Art Of The Sky", where he displays incredible pieces that are many yards long, but look incredibly natural seen from above, such as these two:

























3. Using the body as a canvas is nothing new. However, Chadwick Gray and Laura Spector have completely taken it to the next level: they recreate famous paintings on Chadwick's body. Jaw-dropping is an understatement in this case:



























4. This next artist creates skylines out of wood. Don't let that fool you though, they are not nearly as simple as they sound:


























5. Ron Mueck creates these gigantic human sculptures. The realism is totally mind-blowing (aaaand that's why this features on this round-up. Bet you wouldn't have figured that one out!)



No, this is NOT my grandpa...






















































I hope you enjoyed this week's roundup. This is enough proof that there are really no limits to what the human race can do. Why not make an effort today to let go of some of the limits and barriers we create upon ourselves? Discover your potential and use it to create your own version of mind-blowing!
