John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893) was a Victorian-era painter, notable for his moonlit scenes and landscapes.
By Aki Inomata, quite literally taking the hermit crabs ability for carrying their home on their back, the Japanese artist crafts architecturally inspired shells from plastic for the crabs, with miniature cities on them. I think another fantastic aspect is the transparency, how you can see the anatomy of the crab even when they withdraw is just fascinating.This is the COOLEST THING EVER OMFG
A group of street artists have created murals in East London telling the stories of various young homeless people as part of a campaign for charity Depaul UK, created by Publicis in London.
Each artwork in the campaign focuses on the individual story of a young homeless person, with text giving an insight into the factors that led up to their situation included as part of the murals, which are on display in Dalston and Shoreditch.
The artists involved are Ben Slow, David Shillinglaw, Best Ever (mural shown above), Josh Jeavons, and Jim McElvaney, all of whom gave their time for free.
The artworks all feature a url – streetstories.org.uk – which leads viewers to a website where they can find out more information about the homeless people whose stories appear in the murals, as well as the artists. Visitors to the site can also buy limited edition prints of the artworks, signed by the artists, for £80, with 100% of the money raised going to Depaul UK. As each print is sold, a section of the digital wall featuring the artwork is ‘cleaned’.

Sleep Paralysis is a strange phenomenon in which a person, either while falling asleep or waking up, experiences temporary paralysis. This is usually accompanied by bizarre and unexplainable visions.
Photographer Nicholas Bruno has suffered from Sleep Paralysis since 15-years-old, and has attempted to photograph many of his experiences, finding his art to be a therapeutic outlet.

Lets just take a moment to appreciate the way New Zealand sells beer.
I feel like this basically summarises our culture.
