9 Great Classics Recreated With Ripped Paper
Vik Muniz has the unique talent of ripping up printed matter (i.e. magazines, comic books, print ads, etc.). He also likes to recompose the paper into collages. Those collages just happen to be classic masterpieces that are perfectly re-created.

The Brazilian artist uses thousands of torn pieces of paper for his work, but it's their rough, jagged quality that brings Muniz' pieces to life. From afar, the original classics and Muniz' versions are impressively similar. Upon closer inspection, the thousands of pieces that compose the copied art is what allows Muniz to differentiate himself from past artists and shine as an artist of this generation.

This Artist Will Inspire You To Play With Your Food
Instagrammer Ida Skivenes does what the majority of insta-addicts do; take pictures of her uneaten food.

This Is An Actual Hotel Room In France
Entitled 'Panic Room' this piece of art work would be a great place to stay in for most people, but perhaps break-down worthy for a few serious cases of OCD. Graffiti artist Tilt and two friends are the masterminds behind this cooky hotel room; yes it is a real hotel you can stay in. With the help of paint tape, the trio were able to achieve a crisp line between the loud contrast. From entire walls to the smallest pen, these guys were meticulous to say the least, but their split-personality room is one that most of us would like to get to know.

Amazing Portraits Made From Thousands of Hammered Nails by David Foster
Pointillism has been around for dozens of decades, though artist David Foster is the first to nail it. Literally. His artworks begin with a photograph that he then translates into a sketch; proceeding to hammer nails into place to create the incredible effect. Some of his work, like the award winning piece "Lashes and Nails: is composed of an estimated 16,000 nails. Talk about talent, and patience.

The Incredible Wood-Chip Sculptures of Sergei Bobkov
Russian sculptor Sergei Bobkov's specialty is creating wood work like nobody else's. He claims, "It's not too interesting to do what others can. To create something out of nothing in a completely new way is far more inspiring." As you may suspect, the team at Marvelous agrees.

He starts his work by doing hours of research to better understand the animals he sculpts before beginning his accurate wooden imitations. Later, when he starts the physical work of the pieces, he soaks the chipped cedar into water. He then proceeds to spend up to 12 hours a day on a single sculpture, some taking months of rigorous work to finish. All in all, Bobkov has completed 15 incredible life-sized sculptures.

Art Made From Pouring Molten Aluminum Into A Fire Ant Colony
Anthill Art is the 'artsy' way to kill your ants. By casting a fire ant colony in molten aluminum, the guys at Anthill Art were able to showcase the intricate tunnels and exterminate the pests at the same time. Not to be mistaken with native fire ants, these ants are not indigenous to the area and thus do not have any natural predators. This same type of ant is being exterminated by the millions in the U.S., Anthill Art only found a more unique way of exterminating them.

So what do you think? Cool or cruel? Share and comment below!
