Chalking has been growing in popularity for years, in part due to the increased visibility of incredible artists like Dana Tanamachi (here) and others (here and here). There seems to be a mini movement in Japan right now involving blackboards and chalk (more here). As the saying goes, “everything old is new again”, blackboards, which are now being replaced with whiteboards, possess a sort of novelty these days. Hirotaka Hamasaki, aka Hamacream, is a Japanese art teacher with incredible skills and thousands of Instagram followers. His ability to recreate intricate familiar works of art (on a chalkboard, no less) is just stunning. Though the impermanence of this medium is a bit unnerving to us (we’d want to preserve these works for a long time), they are no less brilliantly executed for having been created with chalk. Truly inspiring.

London-based installation artist Rebecca Louise Law turns floral arrangements on their head, quite literally. Law’s stunning work often consists of thousands of individual flowers suspended overhead by copper wire, which is not only visually arresting, but also expresses her personal exploration of the relationship between humans and the intrinsic impermanence of flowers. It’s very clear that Law’s work really flourishes on a grand scale, and she is often commissioned by high profile clients, including Hermes, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany & Co, Royal Shakespeare Company, Max Mara, and others, to transform spaces in dramatic and beautiful ways.
