44 Unconventional Art Canvases

From Hairy Body Art to Papercup Artistry

— May 25, 2010 — Art & Design
This cluster of unconventional art canvases is proof that paper just may be passé when it comes to creating art. Today, artists are using just about anything they can get their hands on to display their work. Coffee cups, bananas and leaves are being covered in ink and paint and becoming masterpieces. Tattooed supercars, bald heads, fingers and pregnant bellies are all being transformed into moving art installations. Have fun taking in all of these unconventional art canvases, from hairy body art to papercup artistry.
