Discovering art in unusual places

As an artist of course I'm very visual in my life. I often think about how I can create art that people can be astounded and surprised by just as they are walking down the street.

It would be awesome to cheer someone up or make someone laugh just by creating a piece of art to be seen during the course of an average day without them even knowing what is in store for them that very day.

I have found several creatives who have done just that and I am thrilled to include them for you to see here.
 Elevator Mural in the Tropics
This is me painting the inside of a residential home elevator in Captiva, FL. 
This was the most fun I have ever had painting on the walls!

 
Water Rafting

Julian Beever is an English chalk artist who has been creating trompe-l’œil chalk drawings on pavement surfaces since the mid-1990s. His works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle. 



 Front Door Building

In Seoul Korea a building that has a facade made completely from recycled front doors. To some it may be an eyesore, but in fact it’s materials show a deeper meaning for only the intellectuals to see. Choi Jeong-Hwa worked his magic for this creation in South Korea. He is known for his the artistic statements he makes with recycled materials, check out his other works: http://choijeonghwa.com


Bicycles in a Circle!

The imagination can go very far, especially on a circular group of bicycles
Art is not always painted on a canvas with acrylics. It can be an idea that keeps going and going. Using unexpected materials can create a piece of artwork that instills whimsy and inspiration.
What fun!!

What could be more exclusive than dinner in your own secluded treehouse in the bushveld? Guests staying at any of the lodges in the Lion Sands Private Game Reserve (Sabi Sand Reserve) in Mpumalanga, South Africa have the unique opportunity of a romantic evening in a luxury treehouse.
Chalkley Treehouse is built around a magnificent 300-year-old Leadwood Tree, and guests who have booked in for the night can enjoy a delicious picnic feast while listening to the sounds of nature and admiring the bushveld views that extend for miles. The Lion Sands chefs will create a delectable feast from the menu of the day – or according to guest’s needs – using local produce accompanied by fine wines (or anything else that guests would like to drink). The sunsets from the treehouse are goosebump-inducing, and this luxury bush attraction is certainly something to write home about.
