Artist of the Day: Kevin Van Aelst

"Apple Globe"

Don’t you just love it when art is found in something unexpected? I know I do, which is why Kevin Van Aelst is today’s artist. Van Aelst uses everyday objects to create art that portrays things from a completely new and different perspective. He usually utilizes everyday objects and arranges them in seemingly impossible ways to create one-of-a-kind photos that are magical and sometimes even odd.


What I find so amazing about this guy is that he didn’t even start out his art career as an artist! He was a Psychology major whom ended up teaching photography classes and I suppose he just began to hone his own aesthetic. It’s a good thing he did because his stuff is really cool and really gives new meaning to “stepping out of the box”
