ROBBBB-01

Artist ROBBBB’s beautiful works caught my eye partly due to their whimsical and playful nature, and partly due the locations he has selected to paint them in around Beijing. The artist, who considers French street artist Blek le Rat as one of his main influences, has left his art open to interpretation by the viewer.

Personally speaking, I never attempted to tie artworks down with any definitive meanings, maybe ten people look at my works and will have ten kinds of different ideas,"The benevolent see benevolence and the wise see wisdom", so, my purpose is achieved, because you thought process is equal to the communication with my artworks, so the works itself will be more meaningful.

hystérie-petit

These dark and surreal illustrations were created by Cédric De Smedt, a 19 year old student artist based in Brussels, Belgium. Working under the nom de plume, Chute De Strings (or CDS), Cédric is also the creator and writer of a musical/artistic blog [slightly NSFW].

Cédric says,

Drawing as well as writing, I’m evolving into a very dark and bitter universe, where emptiness is almost oppressive and where time seems to have stopped. Each of my pieces tells a story, certainly disconcerting but always including a certain form of truth. I like playing with the onlooker in the meanings of my work. Death, love, God or even madness are the main themes of my illustrations. Even if those themes are quite frequent, I will always try to surprise the one looking at my works while offering new perceptions on these.

You can check out more of his artworks on Flickr [NSFW].

Tal-Avitzur-Robots-Small

Artist Tal Avitzur makes robots. Specifically robots made of junk that no one else wants. And while his robots may not be able to clean your house, wash you car, or play minion to your evil genius, they can, however, light up.

Tal says,

I pay cash for junk that nobody else wants…old tools, scientific equipment, vintage kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners, floor polishers, marine and auto salvage, etc… and turn them into robot night lights.

Visit his site to see more of his fantastic creations.
