The Beady Eyed Craftster is our (mostly) weekly round-up of shiny (mostly) art, design, craft and illus­tra­tion related links from across the inter­nets.

This week we’re very heav­ily on the art side with: painted sculp­ture, paper sculp­ture, ran­dom object sculp­ture, WiFi sculp­ture, lino-print and spoil­ers. 


• Should I kick off with a paint­ing, or with a sculp­ture? Well, these works by artist Shintaro Ohata are both, and really cool look­ing to boot. The artist paints gor­geous back­grounds and sculpts three dimen­sion­al fig­ures to stand in the fore­ground. Close-up it all looks like an oil paint­ing, but from fur­ther away it looks more like the parts of the part­ing have escaped into the real world. Awesome stuff. [Via Colossal]

• Staying with three dimen­sion­al­ity, these amaz­ing paper-cut sculp­tures by Eric Standley  have been get­ting a lot of atten­tion on the inter­net recently – and with good reas­on. Formed of hun­dreds of over­lay­ing laser-cut sheets of paper they’re ridicu­lously intric­ate and very pretty. [Via Make]

• Not quite as intric­ate; these cubes by artist Michael Johansson are, well, basic­ally cubes. The neat thing is that they’re made up of dis­par­ate ran­dom objects stacked and arranged with incred­ible pre­ci­sion; excel­lent stuff. (Also, I bet he’s great at pack­ing for hol­i­days).

• If that’s still a little too busy for you, this next piece has a beauty that arises from its sim­pli­city. The centrepiece of artist Peter Jellitsch’s “Bleecker Street Documents” install­a­tion is a sculp­ture based on the meas­ure­ment of WiFi sig­nal strength across a num­ber of days; the end res­ult being a very cool look­ing 3D graph, like a moun­tain in a video game.

• Right, that’s enough three dimen­sion­al­ity; for some amaz­ing 2D work, check out these linocut prints from John C Thurbin. Having dabbled with linocut myself, it’s very inter­est­ing to see the amaz­ing res­ults that a mas­ter can get out of this medi­um.

• And finally, take a look at these ‘Shortology’ movie posters from cre­at­ive stu­dio “H‑57”, which con­dense the plots down to a simple pico­gram flow­chart. Considering how much of the movie the trail­ers give away nowadays, it can only be a mat­ter of time before real-life posters start to include pic­to­gram spoil­ers! [Via My Modern Met]
