Thomas Turner Uses Walls As His Canvas For Painting

Thomas Turner is a gallery artist and freelance designer based in Atlanta, GA. In the last few years he has evolved and began to explore the art of mural painting. His work mostly depicts birds and animals in a scenario which would only exist in one's imagination. For example: a barn owl carrying a colorful tree, a flying pig, and an otter family perched on a turtle are some of his whimsical paintings. He has created murals for many local businesses including a brewery, a real estate company, and major league sports teams such as Atlanta United.

The barn owl mural shown at the top titled “Passage Over the Horizon” was painted for MiscFit Studio in Atlanta. "This piece is dedicated to all those seeking a better life for themselves and their families. Whether on a mental voyage towards peace of mind or physically traversing the globe in search of refuge, every human deserves the chance at happiness and a healthy life." via

Artist Draws Incredible Portraits With Tiny Strips of Colored Paper


Rebekah Jenkins is a UK based artist who creates stunning portraits using paper, scissors and adhesive. She doesn't sketch before she starts to create a piece, she simply arranges the tiny strips of paper onto a surface. She uses thousand pieces of colored paper strips and creates amazingly detailed animals that almost look real and expressive.

Before she began her career as a paper artist she worked with paint, embroidery and other forms of art but it was paper that resonated with her and gave medium through which she could express herself.

“When I discovered quilling, it seemed to to be a lovely way of creating hair, fur, and feathers so I began a series of British wildlife pictures with some success. The portraits and quilling seem to marry very naturally and the pet portraits began. I love the texture of the paper and how the image seems to change as the light shifts throughout the day.”
