Fin DAC is not your typical graffiti artist. He doesn’t freestyle it with paint cans and you won’t find him in the middle of the night wearing a backpack and a hoody. The London-based artist incorporates a paint/stencil style into making murals of, you guessed it, fierce, tatted-up women.

Dalton M. Ghetti puts a whole new meaning in the term “labor of love” with the painstaking work of carving objects out of the mundane pencil.

Just as the Taj Mahal was built out of love for a woman, Sebastian Errazuriz created one of a kind high heels for each of the great loves of his life. With “12 Shoes for 12 Great Lovers”, the New York-based artist accompanies each creation with a title significant to the look of each shoe.
Step into the world of Javier Perez and you’ll find that the often-overlooked items we use everyday take a life of their own in a whole new light. With paper and pencil in hand, what comes out of the creative mind of the Ecuadorian artist is a clever transformation of otherwise ubiquitous items.
