Top 20 Trends of the Day

From Incredibly Weird Art to High Fashion Athletic Equipment

— July 9, 2013 — Autos
Today's top trends on the site feature a wide variety of photography series, drawings and sculptures that can be categorized as truly weird art pieces. Artists today are flexing their originality muscles and churning out some truly unbelievable artworks -- some that may even make you scratch your head.

The street art series by Herr Nilsson called 'Dark Princesses' features iconic characters, like Snow White and Cinderella, hiding behind the corners of buildings with guns in their hands.

Jason Borders has dedicated serious amounts of time to create his intricately painted skull sculptures. The skulls adopt an extra element of weird due to the fact that the skulls belong to animals with long mouths.

Sculptor Igor Mitoraj created a giant statue that appears to be crumbling right before its viewer's eyes.

For more insight into today's top art and design trends, you'll want to check out the 2013 Trend Reports.
