Artists Makes Real People Look Like Paintings – And the Effect Is Way Eerie [PICTURES]

How would you react if a painting suddenly came to life? Alexa Meade's painted people look like works of art but move like humans -- making for an eerie sight.

Whereas most artists would just paint their subjects on a canvas, Meade actually turns her subjects INTO the canvas. She creates life-size installations that are shockingly exact in their similarity to actual acrylic paintings. Upon first glance it's almost impossible to tell that there are real people under all that paint.

Kilhorn paints their remains in a rainbow of bright colors, turning a dried-up tree skeleton into a technicolor conversation piece, and will install his creations in customers' backyards. He says the intention of the installations is to remind people "of the splendor of the world around us" but we think it's a righteous way to recycle. Mother Nature would be proud.

Creepy Andy Warhol Sculpture Imagines the Artist at 83 [VIDEO]

If Andy Warhol were alive today, how would he react to modern culture? The iconic artist, who died in 1987 at age 58, would probably flip for internet microcelebrities on sites like YouTube, which affirms his "15 minutes of fame" theory.

To commemorate Warhol's 83rd birthday this past Saturday, artist Edgar Askelovic created a sculpture that imagines what he would have looked like had he lived to see 2011.

Our friends at PopCrush assembled an epic list of the worst album covers released in the top half of 2011, including atrocities from Lady Gaga, Limp Bizkit and 311. We must say, there's something about the digital age that makes artists release pretty awful cover art -- could it be that in the age of Spotify and iTunes, they think these'll never actually get seen any larger than thumbnail-size?

Trees Grown to Look Like People Are Way Creepy [PICTURES]

Depending on their surroundings, some trees grow abnormally, with their trunk and branches conforming to nearby debris or blockages.

Former jeweler Peter "Pook" Cook has perfected a process to replicate this himself and actually "sculpt" growing trees into specific formations. Cook began doing this in the late 80s, inspired by fig trees growing on a cliff face. It took him years to refine the method, but the Australian now turns trees into unnatural but indeniably cool shapes, including eerie, human-like figures.
