Today’s street artists are pushing boundaries like never before, creating artwork that’s zany, political and larger than life—and we have the pictures to prove it!

For over five years, snow drawings have popped up all over Colorado, transforming the pristine white landscape into a swirling series of crop circle-like patterns. No, these drawings aren’t the work of…
Armed with little more than a bandsaw, Pennsylvania-based artist James McNabb sculpts incredible wooden cities as complex and limitless as real-life urban areas. Constructed in bizarre shapes (often as spheres or wheels), these geometric towns represent a woodworker’s journey from the suburbs to the city. Each completed sculpture in McNabb’s City Series is built from repurposed scrap wood, allowing him to use various textures and colors to build structures that wow urban loft-dwellers and farmhands alike.
Hannah Rothstein is a Jill of all trades—she writes, sculpts, makes jewelry and paints. For her latest project, Rothstein chose to create 10 variations of the same Thanksgiving dinner, each based on the style and work of a specific artist. The artists she chose to feature represent all corners of art, from contemporary artists like Cindy Sherman to abstract artists like Pablo Picasso (above). Since the project is centered around food and Thanksgiving, Rothstein will be donating all print proceeds to her local food bank. Here are the ten Thanksgiving food art arrangements, paired with real artwork from the artist.
