Hailing from Ghent, Belgium, Wim Delvoye
is one of those nutty artists who literally creates everything in every medium. Literally. Sculptures, photography, installations, paintings, tattooing sedated pigs without PETA hunting for his head (from what we know), everything. Not to mention, his personal website is like SimCity meets Roller Coaster Tycoon...nutty.

Beauty is in the eye of...Vermibus
. A Spanish artist who is currently based out of Berlin, Germany, Vermibus "kidnapps" actual ads near bus stops, subway stations, and other public spaces, and uses gasoline, thinner, acetone, and what have you to transform them into his very own creations. Vermibus replaces the original ads with something more beautiful, reclaiming the public space one ad display at a time.
