William Lamson is the new American beauty

Remember how you felt the first time you saw that shopping bag flying around in American Beauty?  Well, Brooklyn-based artist William Lamson pushes those same buttons with strikingly beautiful and at times humorous photographs and moving images. Lay off the double mocha for a hot minute and enjoy the finer things in life, like blowing up balloons.

Garden Artists

UK artists Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey are smoking some serious grass with their organic manipulation of light sensitivity, which debuted at this year’s Wimbledon. The process: black and white negatives are projected onto the grass, twelve hours per day, for over a week as the grass grows in a dark room. Different blades get different exposure and the results are mind-blowing photographs like the ones below.

Evan Melnyk: The carbonated artist

Even Melnyk admits his favorite movies are your favorite movies. The part-time carbonated drink drinker and full-time graphic designer has morphed into an extraordinary artist. Things are looking up for the now London-based awake dreamer. Have a portfolio look here.
