The Art of Darkness

Seedy Birdhouses

September 23rd, 2010 by Cobwebs

BirdhouseThese are brilliant. Artists Luke Bartels and Jeff Canham hand-craft birdhouses from “the wrong side of the tracks,” including strip clubs, head shops, liquor stores, and more.

The one-of-a-kind birdhouses are for sale at The Curiosity Shoppe, and you can see additional photos on Canham’s site. I love how much character and silly charm is added with a clever paint job.

Obviously, the artists’ birdhouses are handmade and completely unique, but if you don’t happen to have $675 to blow on a birdhouse* and do happen to be a little bit crafty you could get an unpainted wooden birdhouse (frequently available at hardware or craft stores) and paint it yourself. The bad-area-of-town theme is hilarious, but you could also do a haunted house, a medieval apothecary, or any other design that amuses you. The birds won’t mind.
