Cutting-edge Art is on Trend, According to Daniel Levine
The noted trends expert sees unusual art flourishing across several continents
NEW YORK, NY, October 23, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Trends expert and renowned keynote speaker Daniel Levine is tracking an unusual trend that has been appearing around the world over the last few months. Levine is referring to this trend as "Art in Unusual Places", and it features works that significantly vary from traditional sculpture, painting, and design.
"As artists try to push boundaries and explore new mediums, incredible ideas are surging forward," says Levine, who follows trends as editor of WikiTrend.org. "The result is a diverse mix of images on display in unexpected places."
The art in unusual places trend has no unifying features, aside from unexpected locations. The functions, appearances, and forms vary between projects. For example, a functioning ear sculpture in Seoul, South Korea serves as an outlet for citizen complaints. The top of a submarine cutting through a city street in Milan, Italy is an advertisement for car insurance. Trash transformed into sculpture in Berlin serves as an artistic experiment and a fake beached whale along the Thames River in London serve as a reminder of the plethora of non-human life that populates the planet.
Each of these projects fits within existing city infrastructure and makes no effort to cause traffic problems or other congestion. The work is simply not limited to traditional spaces like parks or galleries.
"All around the world, we're seeing artists trying to push the envelope, try bigger things," says Levine. "Some of this art reflects a calling for more environmental consciousness, while some is a manipulation of new technology or ideas. This unusual art indicates a desire to develop new ideas and to continue pushing art forward."
