Calculator Art 21 Examples

I think the people who first attempted to create some of these must have been bored out of their wits. Can this actually be considered art? I imagine some of the people who made these think that they created a masterpiece. I could probably recreate the last one pictured here, but I don’t think that would qualify me as an artist. Check out these 21 examples of calculator art and see what you think and be sure to let us know.

Carved Watermelons A Fruitful Art

The fruitful art of watermelon carving.  It’s like the first person that ever ate an oyster; what made them think that slimy blob would taste good?  What made people think to carve a watermelon up into anything other than slices to eat?  There are even contests for the best carved fruits.  Some of these are so very intricate, it makes me wonder how someone could spend so much time on something when it’s just going to end up going to waste and rotting.  I guess though a photograph can keep it perpetually fresh.  Take a look at these examples and let us know what you think about this fruitful art.

This first piece is by Italian Valeriano Fatica of the Game of Thrones “White Walker”.  The others I had no luck in finding the artist’s names, but if anyone happens to know or has created any of these, please let us know and I’ll be happy to update and credit.

I’m lucky to carve a turkey at Thanksgiving so I can’t really comment on the talent it takes to create something like this, but I think the flowers are the best and most intricate. What do you think? Leave us a comment and let us know.

The Beautiful Artwork of Margaret Keane

I was looking for some inspiration today and it has come from my almost 17-year-old daughter Sinead. Sinead loves art and is doing it as a major for her final year of school. She started to talk to me about Margaret Keane and how much she loves her work. So today I bring you the beautiful work of Margaret, all the while sitting here getting some quality downtime with my eldest. Enjoy, her work is truly beautiful.

Margaret’s work drew little accolades from art critics but was loved and admired by the world.  Andy Warhol said, “I think what Keane has done is terrific!  If it were bad, so many people wouldn’t like it.”   Margaret went on to become one of the most successful living artists in the early 60s.

Margaret’s art gained wide favor and started a big-eyed movement in the early 60s, influencing a large crop of big-eyed artists such as Lee, Gig, Maio, Ozz Franca, Igor Pantuhoff, and Eve.  Margaret has created a legacy of Big Eyes influencing many toy designs and cartoons, such as Little Miss No Name Dolls, Blythe dolls the cartoon Powerpuff Girls, created by Craig McCracken.  And more recently numerous illustrators, New Contemporary and Pop Surrealism artists such as Yoshitomo Nara, Mark Ryden, and Tim Burton.

The Art of Wood Turning

I titled this piece, the art of wood turning because it is an art,  although perhaps not conventional, and creates some absolutely beautiful pieces. Wood turning is different than most types of wood working as instead of moving a tool over the wood to shape it the wood is moving while the tool (a lathe), is stationary.

When I was in Alaska a few years ago I visited a shop in Fairbanks that turned salad bowl sets, among other things, The Great Alaskan Bowl Company, and while utilitarian, they also are a piece of art in their own right, each being different from the other as they are cut from separate pieces of Alaskan Birch.

I think these are some absolutely stunning examples of the art of wood turning.  I would love to have one or two of these pieces, but as is usually the case with art, they come dearly.  What do you think of these?  We’d love to know.
