The underwater painter
In Ukraine, a group of painters dives into water to create paintings. Artists can stay underwater with the help of scuba gear for up to 40 minutes. They use to apply colors to canvases inside the water under difficult conditions.

Feather art is a nature based art by Washington based artist Christ Maynard. He used to create his artwork from the feather of birds by collecting different bird’s feather from the zoo. Maynard cuts the feather carefully to give it a form and puts his effort to preserve the original color and shape of the feather so that it could add to uniqueness of the breed of bird.
Painting with dead ants
Artist Chris Trueman used around 200,000 dead ants to paint a piece he calls “Self Portrait with Gun”. It is the most unusual way of painting. He painted a portrait of his little brother holding a gun by using dead ants. You would be thinking Chris really hates these creatures but the truth is completely opposite. As he mentioned, the hardest part was killing ants. He waited for one year because he did not want to kill those insects but later he pushed himself to complete the project.
Singing, Ringing Tree

It is located at Crown Point near Burnley in England. Numerous pipes have been tuned to emit different sounds depending upon the direction and intensity of winds.
