Leaf-cutting Artist Omid Asadi was born in Iran and now lives in Sale, Greater Manchester, England where he gathers fallen leaves and uses a craft knife and needle to transform them into exquisitely beautiful and expressive works of art. He even recreated The Scream by Edvard Munch on a leaf.
"Art for me is the way of looking differently to this world and around myself.I started to think why nobody paid attention to these beautiful leaves and trod on them, because of their name - if they were called flowers we wouldn’t tread on them at all! I wanted to give the leaves another Life and make art from them."
We’ve just learned about another talented artist who uses the humble disposable coffee cup as their canvas. Jimmy T. enhances his morning coffee cups with striking pop culture-inspired drawings and then leaves them behind for other people to discover. Brightening the days of random strangers with unexpected and thoroughly marvelous artwork is awesome.
The Pallas´s Cat, also called Manul, is a small wildcat living in the grasslands and steppe of central asia. It is named after the german naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776.
THIS IS ME AS A CAT
You’re gonna say “It is named after the german naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776,” but not tell us how he described it?? Probably went something like this:
"Imagine the fattest cat you can, basically all fur covered tum and torso. Then imagine… hmmm. Goofy faces? Like, if the cat were your fun uncle meeting a baby for the first time and trying to get the baby to crack up laughing. So yeah, a tubby, goofy, uncle cat. That is brownish. Name it after me, I’m awesome."
