Dan Bilzerian has been followed by a large percentage of people who see him as an icon for the American Lifestyle. Whether he is partying on a boat, in his multi-million dollar homes, or in Las Vegas with a cache of women, this venture capitalist seeks out the best of the best to surround himself with.
A few months ago, Dan posted a picture of a Buck Glass fish he found online and purchased for his home. He uploaded a picture of the piece using the caption, “Ate Ambien and went shopping. A few days later this stupid $6500 fish shows up…”. It appears that the “stupid fish” that Mr. Bilzerian was referring too was actually a favorite of the wild partier.
Today he uploaded a new picture of a gorgeous hand worked glass chandelier that is equipped with blazing colors and recreated skulls of a goat head. This time Dan Bilzerian chose his words a bit differently when showing the world his new piece from Legendary Artist, Buck Glass: “Remember that $6500 Buck Glass fish… Well I got him to hand blow this monster custom Goat skull chandelier for me”.
Yulia Brodskaya, an artist and illustrator born in Moscow, creates stunning works of art using the quilled paper technique. This art is created by rolling or bending strips of paper and gluing their side to the surface. This makes them essentially lines, but the paper’s width gives these “lines” a depth that 2d art can lack.
Haroshi is a skateboarder and self-taught woodworker, known for his large sculptures made from skateboard decks. To make each sculpture, Haroshi carefully selects and stacks the skateboards, then hand carves, paints, and polishes them into a veneered finish. Because skateboard decks are made of layers of processed wood, the final sculptures appear to have striped surfaces. Haroshi favors popular and recognizable forms for his subjects; in addition to skateboard sculptures, he has created teddy bears, cartoon characters, sneakers, and fire hydrants. During the construction of each sculpture, Haroshi puts a broken skateboard piece into the core of the piece—or gives each piece a “soul”. This practice is inspired by Unkei, a 12th-century Buddhist sculptor who would place a crystal ball inside each of his Buddha sculptures.
