25 Unconventional Canvases

From Foliage Canvases to Skin Conditions as Art

— August 22, 2009 — Art & Design
There are many types of canvases that artists choose to use. This cluster explores 25 different and unusual canvases that creative minds have used, from studded body canvases to agriculture artistry. It’s amazing to see what these artists have come up with!

Implications - The average person has a lot of opportunities to foster their creativity, with blogs and post-production technology encouraging expression. Thus, artists have to work harder than ever before to stand out, causing innovation in everything from materials to mediums. The most creative art directors and creative minds are thus turning to things as odd as human bodies or writing utensils as a canvas, proving that true art has no limits.
