As Sony’s Venom starring Tom Hardy slowly approaches theaters this coming October, fans are already creating artwork, and in this case, sculptures dedicated to the host/symbiote. In the footage after the jump, we see YouTuber Steven Richter begin the process of creating the bust, first building Hardy’s Eddie Brock before adding Venom’s details on one side of his face.

Straker is an Australian street artist who paints unique murals that appear to light up the streets. His pieces look just like real neon signs, but they are actually 2D and created using only spray paint and a special technique that makes them pop off the wall.

Graffiti truly is a global visual language that knows no barriers – style can’t be lost in translation or misinterpreted.

The sell-off coincided with his 54th birthday and the anniversary of his wedding to actor Danielle Spencer in 2003. The couple separated in 2012 and they finalised their divorce last year.

If the most impressive thing you’ve ever sculpted from Play-Doh was a snake that people still misidentified, watching a talented sculptor like Steve Richter turn clay into an incredibly lifelike bust of the Hulk isn’t going to make you feel any better about your lack of artistic prowess. Take it from me.

As one of the artists in this film states, you might get angry as seeing something they have painted, yet you don’t get angry when you see a big billboard advertising something in the same spot. Whether they are right or wrong to do it, they are having fun and using their art and creativity to break the law.

Nothing says f**k the law more than dressing up as the law while breaking the law. This guy obviously isn’t very scared of the NYPD, and even gives them a decent shoutout while painting walls.

A talented 12-year-old boy has taken his first steps as a tattoo artist—and has already completed 20 designs on those willing to trust his skills. @eztheshark first tried his hand at the tattoo gun while his mother was getting a red flower inked onto her skin. He wished out loud he could do the same thing, and tattoo artist Ali Garcia offered to have him fill in some of the lines. Since then, Garcia has become Ezrah’s mentor, and the young apprentice is still growing his skills at Honolulu, her tattoo parlour. Awesome stuff.

‘Über Freaks’ takes place deep in the heart of Berlin, and chronicles what it’s like to be part of a close knit group, who get their kicks by roping down buildings with the barest of safety precautions, climbing buildings by way of their exteriors, and lock-picking their way through the whole of the city and its Metro stations. The film can be considered a joyride for the viewer, as they are finally granted a backstage pass to the exclusive and hectic lifestyle of the Berlin Kidz, being privy to a whole world of adrenaline and thrill seeking that occurs just outside their apartment windows.
