While “woodworking” isn’t always an art form, Pei-San Ng sure makes it one. And it’s at LEAST as impressive as those bears carved out of stumps or whatever. He’s doing a bit more than just playing with matches.

4. Egg Sculptures, Sam Taylor-Johnson

“Upcycling” is the practice of reusing what might’ve been trash and turning it into either useful things or pieces of art. The latter is where Yuken Teruya shines, turning even old toilet paper rolls into an awesome wall decoration.

7. Oboe: Jack Cozen Harel

8. Green sculpture/topiary, Pearl Fryer

An art form as old as the Romans, Pearl Fryer has spent years perfecting his form and now has his own park honoring it.
