When it comes to fibre art, Nathan Vincent doesn’t mess around. Or he does, but in a very tenacious manner. He uses yarn to create remarkable works that challenge our expectations of the materials, as well as the imagery he depicts. He does this through a cunning combination of processes, and subject matter. The processes he uses are traditionally considered feminine activities, such as: knitting, crocheting, sewing and embroidering. The subjects he chooses are traditionally masculine objects, like: slingshots, video game controllers, and super hero capes. This juxtaposition of the familiar in an unfamiliar context is what makes Vincent’s work so striking — via MAKE:

The US Department of Veterans Affairs commissioned artist Ray King to bring life to an otherwise average looking parking facility, located at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California.

The installation, named Horizon, is made from laminated holographic glass elements attached to the parking structure. But the attached elements, are laid out in very specific patterns, in fact they’re Morse code dots and dashes — via CONTEMPORIST

A good notebook in your pocket inspires you to jot down your thoughts. It summons forth the inner workings of your mind that otherwise might be lost in the moment. It can thus be a precious possession.

For José Naranja, a Moleskine notebook isn’t just a handy tool for everyday carry, but a work of art. He crafts elegant notebooks with hand-penned words and illustrations around other pieces of paper that he pastes in — via Neatorama

Strands of discarded yarn from a textile manufacturer become the sky, water, sand, bark and moss in realistic large-scale landscapes by Alexandra Kehayoglou in project intersecting fine art and carpet making. The artist retrieves scraps and unwanted materials from her family’s Buenos Aires factory, El Espartano, and painstakingly manipulates the threads into a point-by-point weft to create layer after layer of each composition — via Dornob

The Glass Sculptor / Signal Multimedia

Jack Storms is a rarity in the art world: truly unique.

He sculpts glass art using a cold process — something very few artists do — and some of his methods are exclusive only to him.

Storms has made one-of-a-kind works for athletes, heads of state and celebrities — all from his studio right here in Valencia. Signal Multimedia visited him in his element to see how he combines math, mechanics and muscle to create his glass marvels — via Youtube

Leafy sea dragons are in the same family as the sea horse. They are delicate and whimsical creatures. Sea dragons are some of the most ornately camouflaged creatures on the planet. Hiding in meadows of seagrass. This sculpture is a free standing sculpture, allowing it to be displayed almost anywhere. Creating this sculpture was a challenge for sure, and required a complex system of moulds to capture my sculpture — via Etsy

Please be patient, the image of a traditional Azerbaijani rug pattern is still loading beneath your feet. The often centuries-old conventional motifs from an ancient centre of carpet weaving stretch, pixelate and otherwise glitch out in unexpected ways in a tactile series by artist Faig Ahmed, enhancing practical textiles with unexpected modern details inspired by the advent of computer technology — via Dornob

Quite a departure from Josh Agle — aka Shag — who has left the 1960s and dropped into the ‘70s for this wonderful Summer of ’76 limited edition print.

Of course, the stars of this particular show are The Ramones and (we are guessing) the CBGB club. Although we’re not sure if there were so many posters on the wall of the club back in 1976! Either way, it’s an iconic band in a cool club setting.

It is a 13-colour hand pulled serigraph print, sized at 32.5 x 17 inches (82.5cm x 43cm) and sold in an edition of 150. Each print is also signed and numbered by Shag and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The initial price is $450 — via Retro To Go

Germen Crew just completed what could be one of the world’s largest murals in a small Mexican pueblo. The colourful mural was Commissioned by the Las Palmitas, Pachuca District municipality in the state of Sinaloa, long known for its role as the Drug Capital of Mexico. The Nuevo Muralisimos of Mexico spent five hard months working with the community to realise this ambitious urban revitalisation program. A massive public art project comprising 209 homes and over 215,000 square feet, the Macro Mural reveals a hybrid style that leans heavily on the group’s graffiti background, deftly coaxing the country’s most recognisable art form into the 21st century — via Inhabitat
