These toothy oxfords, made with a pair of British dress shoes and over 1,000 dentures, are just an art project at this point, but let’s hope they don’t become a trend. I have a hard enough time remembering to floss the teeth in my mouth–I’m not sure I could handle the extra responsibility of flossing my shoes. [Fantich & Young]

Start Saving Up, Hipsters: This Bike Costs $70,000

Classic Schwinn not doing it for you anymore? Yearning for a ride that will really get you noticed? How about this one-of-a-kind beech wood bike? Inspired by a famous 19th century chair designed by Michael Thonet (side note: who are the people who are keeping track of famous chairs? Should I know about famous chairs?), it will cost you $70,000, but hey, it’s a small price to pay for total exclusivity. Careful though: that 5-figure price tag doesn’t include brakes.

Costco, the big box retailer, sells virtually everything — engagement rings, meats, coffins — and now they’re extending their empire to the art market.

Apparently Costco used to sell fine art, but stopped after the authenticity of a couple of Picasso paintings it sold was questioned. The store began relisting art a couple of weeks ago, and have already sold eight of the 10 pieces listed on the company’s website, including two framed lithographs by Henri Matisse and a framed screen print by Andy Warhol. The store is also selling works by living artists, many of whom could never have imagined their work being sold in such a mass market way. “It’s a really great way to get exposure for my work in a way I wouldn’t be able to get on my own,” said artist Heather Robinson. “I know their customers are really important to them, and they have a really loyal following.” Keep reading »

Artist Leanie van der Vyver created these insanely high leather heels, aptly titled “Scary Beautiful,” to draw attention to the strange and intense ways humans alter themselves to achieve “perfection.” The front heel requires the wearer to lean forward onto their shins in order to stand and walk upright(ish). Extreme? Yes, but if you had no context at all for modern day beauty standards, would these seem any more ridiculous than a 6-inch studded Louboutin stiletto? Or a syringe full of Botulinum we use to voluntarily paralyze the muscles in our faces? Food for thought. Check out a scary, beautiful video of the shoes in action, after the jump… [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »

The Art Of Penile Painting
His penis is his paintbrush

Like Tim Patch aka Pricasso, I also get all my best ideas when I’m in the bathroom. Unlike him, it’s never occurred to me to make a smiley face with my pee. Lucky for Pricasso, this idea led him to start experimenting with using his penis (and sometimes his balls and/or bum) as a paintbrush. His penile painting career has proved to be a fruitful idea (aside from the potential gangrene he’s susceptible to from all the paint-to-penis contact), and now, Pricasso makes all of his masterpieces wearing nothing but a top hat and a bow tie. And because I know you were wondering, yes, he did find penile painting erotic and get raging boners when he first started his career, but now he’s gotten past that and he has great control of his tool. OMG, I kind of need that picture of Gordon Ramsey painted by his dick. [VICE]

We Want To Go To There: Dublin’s Urban Playground

For a project called “The City Is A Playground,” artist and self-described “urban hacktivist” Florian Rivière used hot pink duct tape to create playground games around the city of Dublin. He improvised mazes and hopscotch squares and race tracks in all kinds of unexpected places, but unfortunately for those of us who would love to get some quality playtime in, the works are not exactly user-friendly: a maze leads into an office building, race lanes stop abruptly at a brick wall, and as you can see, anyone hoping to partake in this game of hopscotch would be stopped by an imposing metal fence. Is it a powerful commentary on the rigidity of adult life in the city? Yes. Does it also have me itching to buy a bucket of sidewalk chalk and play some fucking hopscotch? Definitely. [Neatorama]
