Art That Makes You Go Oohh and Aahh

Art That Makes You Go Oohh and Aahh

What better way to round out this month's handmade inspiration than with some truly unique artists that take re-purposed and renewable resources to a truly imaginative level? From feathers exploding from your stove to psychedelic paper art, these artists' visions are anything but ordinary. Proceed with caution, though; these are not one size fits all, so you may want to check with your housemates before you install a massive feather sculpture in the kitchen.

Shown above the jump, from left to right:

1 Kate MccGwire: Kate's art explodes onto the scene with re-used and layered materials to create out of the box pieces. Her work is truly one of a kind and can take years to build with the variety of materials and shapes she chooses to create out of abstract ideas.

2 Jen Stark: Get entranced in paper art with Jen's mesmerizing patterns. She creates three-dimensional paper sculptures with bright colors that literally jump off of the wall.

3 Susanna Shap: Gorgeous palette knife art that deserves a center spot in any home, Susanna's take on palette knife art mixed with impressionism somehow moves while on the wall. She is a self-taught artist with an Etsy shop, Modern House Art, showcasing some of her unique pieces.

4 George Peterson: For the Skaters out there, let this re-use artist adorn your walls with his re-purposed skateboards. He creates unique, almost tribal art out of ridden and discarded skateboards that have a depth of color and individuality.

Hope that tops off your art-thirst for the homemade home month!
