In a creative approach towards celebrating Octopus Festival 2013, artist Natsuko Kogure makes the sea critters shine with his homage of 600 octopi.

Often overlooked for their more fearsome brethren during events like shark week, these tentacled vertebrates are actually fascinating creatures by their own rights. Kogure utilizes his creativity, imagination and a dash of humor in his vast collection of crafty octopus designs, creating everything from eight-legged donuts to grumpy tentacled cacti.

Each piece is made using recycled newspaper and coated with bright and funky paint colors to add emphasis to the various silly characters. Gathered together on the beach as part of an art exhibit, the octopi make for an impressive seaside sight that is hard to forget.
