Plasticine Portraits by Mondongo

Argentinian art collective Mondongo (which is the name of a traditional Argentinian tripe stew) creates incredibly detailed portraits by using dripped and molded Plasticine.

Mondongo which consists of the trio Juliana Laffitte, Manuel Mendanha and Agustina Picasso was founded in 1999 and has created subversive works out of a multitude of ingredients.

In their 2008 manifesto, they claim, "We are like three witches stirring it up in a cauldron… attempting to alchemize, to distill, and to ooze all the chaos and the all possible “all-ness” in it…"

Push Pin Art by Eric Daigh

California artist Eric Daigh creates portraits by putting ordinary push pins in posterboard.

He uses blue, red, white, yellow and black push pins (he sprays green pushpins black since there are no black pushpins) to create his masterpieces.




Each portrait requires about between 25,000 and 100,000 pushpins which he applies one at a time.

The technique is much like pointillism, however Morris uses Numbers instead of dots. There are absolutely no lines and no smudging in these drawings.

Sienna’s Math and Science series is drawn with scientific and mathematical data relevant to the subject matter.
