Faig Ahmed graduated from the Sculpture faculty at the Azerbaijan State Academy of Fine Art in Baku in 2004. Since 2003, he has been working with various media, including painting, video and installation. Currently, he is study¬ing the artistic qualities of Azerbaijani traditional rugs – he disassembles their conventional structure and randomly rearranges the resulting components of the traditional composition then combines these
fragments with contemporary sculptural forms.

AJ Fosik is an American artist best known for his carefully crafted and vividly colored wooden sculptures. Fosik’s feral creations take the shape of fantastic beings that communicate a subversive, anti-religious commentary through the depiction of hyperbolized fictional gods.

He was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. In 2003, he received a BFA in Illustration from Parsons School of Design in New York City. In the years since, Fosik has lived in various cities across the country including Denver, Brooklyn and Philadelphia.

The animals in my work are strictly metaphorical. There are several reasons I use carnivores in my work (I often don’t try to represent any specific species although that’s not true a %100 of the time)  not the least of which is that the open maw of a predator is a great metaphor for the nature of existence and the inevitable end we all face.  I often use the predator imagery as a metaphor for the physical self- the predator being the very embodiment of evolutionary pressures and the natural world-  in contrast to the symbolic self – represented by the belief systems and the various immortality schemata that I utilize in my work.

Cephalopods + Anamorphic Art = Super Awesome!

This amazing anamorphic octopus mural was created at the SAMO space for contemporary art in Turin, Italy by Marco ‘Mach505’ Cimberle of the Italian art collective Truly Design. The tentacular green giant looks downright cozy tucked into the corner of its concrete cave.

UK-based 3D artist Chris Malec created an awesome series of 3D renderings of Adventure Time characters as LEGO minifig series. From Finn and Jake (including Farmworld Finn) to Lemongrab, Magic Man, a Banana Guard and Grob Gob Glob Grod, words cannot express how much we wish these little figures were real. Malec is currently working on renderings of more of our favorite characters from the Land of Ooo, including Marceline, Princess Bubblegum, Flame Princess, Ice King, BMO, The Lich, and Hunson Abadeer.

Malec has also created some fantastic Adventure Time/Batman crossover figures such as Finn as Batman (featuring Jake as a bomb), Princess Bubblegum as Batgirl, the Ice King as Mr. Freeze, Gunter as The Penguin, and BMO as Alfred.

Head over to Chris Malec’s Behance portfolio to check out more of marvelous creations.
