Picture of the Week- Abstract Street Fighter Art

I love minimalist art and did a few posts in the past but this Street Fighter rendition takes it to a different level.   This is made by Infinite Continues check out their Flickr for more cool minimalist art.  He also did a Turbo Street Fighter version and Mortal Kombat. They are also available as t-shirts here.  It’s even better if you recognize them all

Miniature Art Installations

“Wet n’ Wild”

These are the latest miniature street art installations by Slinkachu.  Thumbelina instantly came to mind! Check out Slinkachu website to see more of his art and information.

Slinkachu’s Bio via his website:

“My ‘Little People Project’ started in 2006. It involves the remodelling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place and leave on the street. It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. The street-based side of my work plays with the notion of surprise and I aim to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography, and the titles I give these scenes aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humour. I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works.”

The funniest responses from his FAQ page:

“Q: Where did you get the idea for little people?

A: Many of the little people live under my bed where I force them into hard labour cleaning crumbs off my floor…

Q: Can I commission you for an unforgettable night of passion?

A: You can’t handle me, baby.”

The first 8 photos are from his new installation, they are also the only ones I titled.  The others are more of his work.

MMORPA ART: Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Art


This was made by Jason Baalman aka EclecticAsylum on YouTube.  He does some unique and cool art videos on Youtube.  Check out his channel and you can buy his art on ebay.  He also submitted this video for the Guggenheim Museums YouTube Play. A Biennial of Creative Video.  He used the website iScribble.net to do this online drawing.

“An evolving painting created by four artists working simultaneously on the same digital canvas. The paintings metamorphic process was unplanned and free form. The artists took cues from each others actions and interpretation of various shapes/colors. Communication was made possible by text chat. The total elapsed time was 4 hours.”

I think it would be pretty fun to do this with a bunch of friends.  Who’s down?
