Zadok Ben-David

There truly are days when I feel like I can’t find anything I really want to post here. Or I find one thing I’m kind of excited about and spend the next hour trying to find the artist’s full name. then there are days like today, when I look up and an hour has evaporated, and I realize I’ve pinned about a hundred new images. Then I have to decide which one is the one for today. It’s tough being me.

This is a phenomenal artist named Zadok Ben-David, who does these distinctive metal sculptures that range from intricately miniature to soaring larger-than-life. I love them all. His depiction of nature and especially the human form is so delicate and yet so inevitable in it’s execution. As always, I’m just posting this one image, but you really should check out his website because everything he’s done is worth seeing.

Tom Fruin

I am a huge fan of public artworks. I think they are an essential piece of the texture of a city, and I’m so lucky to live in Minneapolis where you can throw a rock and hit three murals. This link should take you to an album of public art I have on Facebook. I love adding to this album, and how it helps me see art everywhere I go.

Today, I give you Tom Fruin, who made this phenomenal piece of public artwork in Brooklyn.


I love how this piece changes the whole landscape it appears in. Just imagine if it was a plain white concrete water tower, and how much beauty would be lost. If I ever make it back to New York City, I’m going to make sure I get to stand on the Brooklyn Bridge and see this piece for myself.
