Most Unique or Unusual Art Mediums

Vehicle Vinyl Wraps:

In this day and age, many have turned to vehicle vinyl wraps to showcase their individuality and unique visions. Bringing those visions to life requires the skills of an artist, but not any artist a vehicle wrap artist. SS Customs was recognized and given an award for being the best vehicle enhancement studio on the West Coast.

They literally transform your vehicle into a driving piece of artwork to be showcased and admired wherever you may go. Available in different finches and textures as well as color change options, vehicle vinyl wrap artists truly have a unique medium and artistic gift.

Dryer Lint Art:

Believe it or not, dryer lint is responsible for making some pretty unique and amazing portraits and art. Dryer Lint artist Heidi Hooper creates portraits with dryer lint that include pop culture scenes as well as animals and vibrant colors. Her art is so amazing that many java called her the “Andy Warhol of dryer lint!”

Etch-A-Sketch Art: 

We had to include etch-a-sketch art because what other art medium is as constricting as creating a masterpiece with one connected line? One etch-a-sketch artist can create portraits on a pocket etch-a-sketch within minutes, while bigger pieces like The Mona Lisa can take upwards of 10+ hours. And if the artist makes a mistake too big to be incorporated into the sketch she has to erase and start completely over! Talk about patience and staying true to your art form.

Sand Sculptures: 

One of the pieces of unique art that truly amaze me. Standing next to the ocean and feeling the ocean breeze smelling that fresh, salty ocean air while observing a beautiful and intricate sand sculpture may be one of life’s greatest pleasures. We are talking intricate and chiseled sculptures depicting anything and everything your imagination can think up. In fact, this type of art has gained so many spectators that on Tybee Island they actually hold a Sand Arts Festival.  

As we mentioned before the great thing about art is that it has few if any limitations and barriers. Well except when it comes to that constricting Etch-A-Sketch art. But really, your imagination, skill, and dedication may just help you bring art to life in unique and different ways, which only adds to the overall finished masterpiece in the end!
