Not only is Scott Campbell a renowned tattoo artist but he also creates amazing pieces of art. Scott's laser cut sculptures depicting skulls are carved out of US dollars.  The skulls are metaphors for the relationship between money and art and how they are entwined into today's contemporary art scene. I can definitely see that connection but I also see a metaphor for how money corrupts people and society in general. I wonder how much Scott is asking for these pieces. Interesting question, don't you think? Regardless, the pieces are stunning. 

Check out Scott Campbell's website to view more of his creations.

    You've seen Cleon Peterson's Balance of Power before, but not like this. Case Studyo have collaborated with the artist to create a 3D version of the painting rendered in glossy, white porcelain.

    I had to do a double-take when I saw this email in my inbox this morning. Cult film director, comic book author, and Twitter philosopher Alejandro Jodorowsky is being immortalized in resin by Unbox Industries.

    These glass sculptures are far more interesting than that shitty Crystal Skulls movie.
