Artist Uses Her Sink As A Canvas And Lets The Water Destroy Her Paintings 24 Hours Later (26 Pics)

During quarantine, a lot of professionals were left without a job or something to do. Many of them decided to use their skills and talent in something else so that they wouldn’t lose their touch. But what if you run out of supplies and can’t go to a shop for more?

Creative director Marta Grossi is an Italian painter who lives in Milan and has worked with a lot of famous companies like Vogue, Disney, and many others. She decided she would use those hard-acquired drawing skills on an unusual canvas—her sink.

Stuck in Italy and unable to see her family, she wanted to keep herself busy and sane during these hard times of self-isolation. Which is why she started a creative project.

She named the project “Wash Your Hands and Keep Creative.” Marta painted flowers, waves, animals, and many other things on the porcelain surface, which was perfect for a reusable canvas. Colorful and happy images paired with practicing her skills made for a good way to spend those long days in quarantine. The beautiful images gave her hope and helped her find beauty in unexpected places.

She painted a picture almost every day and after 24 hours, she let the water wash it down. She filmed some of the art washing away and it’s quite satisfying to watch.

What do you think of these paintings? Maybe you can try and use your sink as a canvas and see what you come up with? After all, if you don’t like it, you can just wash it away.

Artist Creates 16 Types Of Designer Packaging For Food Products To Show The Absurdity Of Brands

We’re all familiar with brands like Prada, Apple and Chanel. To most people, those brands carry a sense of luxury, quality, and refinement. There are also those who believe that such companies stand for decadence, mindless spending, and overpriced items. Perhaps driven by these conflicting opinions Israeli artist Peddy Mergui created a series of works where he imagined how would certain food products look like if they were packaged by famous brands.

The project is called Wheat is Wheat is Wheat and explores the idea of how brand packaging changes our perception. After all, the food inside is still the same. “The exhibition explores the dynamic and often blurred ethical boundaries of design within consumer culture”. That’s how the artist himself describes the idea.
