Artsy Fartsy~~~The Art of Sang Sik Hong

Did you ever do this?

                         source                          


     I don't think I ever did, but the image is so sweet and it always reminds me of old 50's movies where teens actually went on dates and hung out at the soda shop.  The straws (I think) were made of paper ...not plastic....do any of you remember that? 


Recently while I was looking for an interesting subject for an artsy fartsy post...I came across an artist who creates incredible art, amazing art...


Amazed....I was amazed.  

                   How someone took something as ordinary as this...
                                                       
                                                 Straws
                                
                                                   source





                            And made this...
                    
                                         Source










     The artist's name is Sang Sik Hong and he takes thousands of ordinary drinking straws and makes masterpieces





                                                          
                                                             source                                                              




          
                                           source












                Here is the Artist making some small adjustments
I wonder how many straws were used here!!!!

  5. Wow! That is amazing! Who thinks of those kinds of things! While I was in ND visiting my sister-in-law we went to the Art Museum at the University and saw an exhibit with art made from actual dead preserved bugs and it was beautiful and presented in unique ways.I love mixed media art but some people go way beyond my imagination.

  8. Amazing! If you share straw, make sure the other person doesn't slurp up the drink all in one gulp. That is my advice for the day.

  10. I like to annoy people I'm sitting with, or nearby, by slurping obnoxiously loud when trying to get the last drops of my milkshake or whatever it is. Nothing should go to waste, and people act like straws aren't made for slurping. The nerve of them! This post reminded me of a childhood song, "Sipping cider through a straw." Do you know that one, Joanne? "First cheek to cheek, then lip to lip..." It didn't get more heated than that. It's a cute one.

    Have a great weekend.
