Ukrainian artist Oleg Shuplyak creates awesome paintings in which objects, figures, and often the surrounding landscape have been skillfully arranged to form human faces. Or, in the case of the bottom painting, a few carefully positioned leaves and branches form the shape of a little bird.

Once you’ve spotted the illusory faces, it’s almost impossible not to see them. Our favourite piece might be the top image, in which Vincent van Gogh’s face is suggested by a painting done in his own unmistakable style.

Visit Oleg Shuplyak’s website to check out more of his mesmerizing paintings.

This beautiful LEGO bonsai tree is the work of Japanese botanical artist Makoto Azuma. Anyone who has ever played with LEGO bricks will recognize what an impressive feat it is to create such convincing organic shapes and textures, the rough, variegated bark, and uneven, pillowy moss. It’s an awesome little tree.

Visit Makoto Azuma’s website to view more detailed images.

Korean sculptor Yong Ho Ji has mastered a medium most artists wouldn’t even dare think about using….tires. The exquisite level of anatomical detail he can achieve by gluing and screwing all types of tires onto his resin-cast skeletons is, in and of itself, a true feat of engineering. Every muscle and facial expression you see on these animals was created with a surgeon’s-like precision.
