Converted water tower from 1938, Wow…

So there was a water tower in a small Belgian village that no one paid much attention to. That is, until a businessman decided to convert it into the dream home I had no idea I wanted. The entire exterior was restored to its original state and the inside, well… the photos speak for themselves.

This place is incredible. Not only visually but the high tech features and, most of all, that awesome view.

This is true love of art!

It’s possible you’ve never heard of Simon Beck, but after today, you won’t be able to forget him or his wintry works of art. Simon is an artist and is most well-known for making incredibly delicate and detailed art in the snow, just by walking over a fresh snowfall. Heliterally walks miles in the snow to create these pieces. And the part that blows our minds? He could spend hours upon hours creating one design, just to have it be covered by snowfall or blown away by the next day. But he still makes them.

If you’d like to see more of Simon’s art (which is genius bordering on insanity), visit thisFacebook page dedicated to it.

Shockingly beautiful way to bring new life to old tales

Guy Laramée, a Canadian artist from Montreal, is doing something seemingly shocking with books: he is destroying them. Don’t worry, though, it’s all in the name of art. Some might protest using this medium in such a way, but when you see the final outcome of his pieces you’ll stop questioning why he chose to carve books. He creates incredibly detailed landscapes and caverns by whittling a book down or carving through the interior pages.

The 56 year-old artist has dabbled in music composition, directing, writing, painting, singing and many other art forms. When you see his carved books, though, you’ll think he was born to do it.

Simply incredible. If you want to see more of Guy’s outstanding work, visit his website. It’s hard not to be in awe of his skill.

He stated, “I carve landscapes out of books and I paint romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening.”
