What would you do if you had a chance to design your very own 2015 Ferrari California T?

Most people would probably have it painted with a matte black finish or maybe put vinyl wrap on it. One artist, however, decided to take a more creative approach when he was commissioned by Ferrari to put finishing touches on one of its new $200,000 convertibles.

In a recent video uploaded to Vimeo by Ferrari, artist Fabian Oefner decided to venture off to Maranello, Italy, where Ferrari is headquartered, to put a Ferrari California in a wind tunnel and spray it with vibrant, neon UV paint.

The results? Just as luxurious as they sound.

Check out the video below for a closer look.


Here’s a peek behind the scenes.

After the 5 Pointz area was whitewashed last year, graffiti artists were in an uproar. This act of protest calls attention to what artists see as the further gentrification of New York City.

1. A giant banner bearing a resemblance to oversize police tape, reading “Gentrification In Progress,” was put up around the historic 5 Pointz area in Queens, N.Y. last night.

2. It was allegedly put up by the street artist GILF (who’s done similar projects) and BAMN, a civil rights advocacy organization.

One man’s snack food is another man’s art.

Instagram user cheesecurlsofinstagram captures Cheetos that have been uniquely gnarled to look like distinctive people and objects. The untrained eye may see a common cheese curl, but at just the right angle, you’ll find a work of art.

The photographer began his delicious journey when he found a “Sasquatch” in a bag of cheese curls. The rest is history.

The cheese curls he finds span all subjects from pop culture, such as the Cheeto Great Gonzo, to current events, such as the Cheeto Pope Francis. Every photo is given a clever caption for followers who don’t quite see the resemblance at first glance.

In a world where people see images of Jesus in their toast, it’s not that far-fetched to imagine seeing people in your Cheetos bags too.
