The melting ice cream truck is a sculpture titled Hot With The Chance of Late Storm that was unveiled at the 2006 Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney.
Built for the Festival of the Five Seasons in Chaudfontaine Park, which lies on the outskirts of Liege, Belgium, a giant clothespin sculpture appears to be holding on to a mound of dirt and grass.
Designed by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal, a professor of art at the Middle East Technical University, the giant sculpture is just one piece in a string of Uysal works that rely on flawless illusion.
how cool is this. dutch artist iepe rubingh along with the anonymous crew has transformed a major intersection near berlin's rosenthaler platz into a colourful, oversized street canvas. 'painting reality' is a guerrilla-style art project that involved 500 litres of paint to be strategically spilled on to the road. official german railway bicycles were rented and rigged with hinged buckets that allowed for quick and easy unloading of the environmentally-friendly, water-based paint. red, yellow, blue, and purple, the colours were then organically spread by moving vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians to result in a dynamic, visual piece that mapped the life and motion of the intersection.
Kurt Perschke is an artist who works in sculpture, video, collage and public space. His most acclaimed work, RedBall Project, is a traveling public art project that has taken place in Abu Dhabi, Taipei, Perth, England, Barcelona, St. Louis, Korea, Portland, Sydney, Arizona, Chicago and Toronto, and received a National Award from Americans for the Arts Public Art Network.
