Trash Monsters by Nomerz

Painting architecture with graffiti and decorating it with discarded items, Nomerz has imbued life into cold stone and commanded them to consume any helpless photogs or curious bystanders. A closer detail on his top creation: “Glutton” reveals a car bumper, plastic bottles, and even an old shoe for the toofs:

Gilded Beasts by Jessica Joslin

Sometimes I wish I could recreate my childhood pets, all the cats and gerbils I ever owned, the Chupacabra I lovingly named Mortimer and the Manticore with the face of Sean Connery. Jessica must have felt the same yearnings as me, prompting her to assemble these fantastical hybrid creatures from spare junk parts and findings. You can check out her gallery with tons more over at her website: jessicajoslin.

Stemapunk Metal Dragon by Kreatworks

Dragons are badass. Science proves this. But you know what else is badass? Metal. Preferably the scrap variety that’s all jagged and filthy and possibly teeming with viruses… kind of like a dragon! Level up your dragon-slaying subset by purchasing this badass at etsy for only $11,500 USD. Hey, you’ve been looting dungeons right? That’s pocket change once you sell everything off at the nearby village.

Uncanny Wood Sculptures by Randall Rosenthal

Yes, you are reading that sequence of words correctly: every single picture is of a single block of wood, hand-carved and painted in hyper-realistic fashion. Randall adds amazingly intricate nuance to each piece: his dollar bills look weathered and wrinkled while his wooden legal pad looked creased from frequent discarded ideas. His carvings look so realistic, you could probably take some of his wooden $100 bills and go use it to purchase that hovercraft you’ve always been wanting.

Diminutive Horrors by Adam Makarenko

We’re most afraid of things we cannot see, but what about the things that are just really tiny? Adam hand-crafts each piece down to the most intricate detail, before arranging them for their extreme close-ups. The result are fascinating glimpses into horrific scenes with no context but left to the machinations of your own mind to explain.

The Ginormous Marionettes of Royal de Luxe

Street theater company Royal de Luxe realized that regular-sized lifelike marionette dolls were creepy enough, why not make hugenormous ones they could make traverse the countryside, inciting terror in the local citizens? Or just call it art, whichever colloquialism you prefer.
