Crazy but good artist

Thanks Ev! I will take a look at that newspaper dress...

I just found this artists website, with all hie works on it. They are all really weird, but they are creative so I thought I would share them. He has some great ideas, though some are a little scary. He has done a painting out of blood for example.
I thought this particular piece was really cool. The artist, Phil Hansen doesn't just make his art on canvas with paint, he in this work did Jimi Hendrix out of match heads, and in the end he lit it on fire. Which looks like a massive waste of his time as it would have taken ages to create, but this artist isn't doing art for money, he is genuinly fasinated by art and ways in which he can create new and different peices that havnt been created before.
All of the artwork seen on this website are completley differnet peices from different points of view. If you look closely at one peice, you can tell the whole picture has been made out of tiny words, or bible references, and when you step back and look at the whole work, you can see that all those words together make a giant picture. Its really clever and detailed.
If you want to see more of his work heres the website :
Make sure you read what he has written about how he makes the work!
