Monster art

30 Apr

I’ve seen crafters with a sense of humour incorporate a touch of whimsy in their pieces before; I’m thinking Dave Devries’ bizarre if not slightly grotesque artworks with his Monster Engine project.
This repurposing project by Chris McMahon & Thyrza Segal is slightly more lighthearted and a stroke of genius. I’ve always wondered who buys the icky old paintings that hang about in thrift stores. Now I know there’s another life waiting to escape from these apparently dull wall decorations. I’ll keep this in mind next time I feel like incorporating a touch of humour into a room. Inspired!
