Unconventional Art Spaces: Do They Work?

Cheeming Boey's Styrofoam Cups

Cheeming Boey's Styrofoam Cups

Every day you see art plastered everywhere from city parks to the lobbies of public buildings to public bathroom stalls. And so it should come as no surprise that Heathrow  is rolling up its sleeves and lending the wall space as well.

The UK government is planning to turn Heathrow’s Terminal 5 into a leading venue showcasing masterpieces from the national collections, together with contemporary art works. The National Gallery, the Tate galleries, and the Hayward Gallery in London are interested in the project. Currently the National Gallery shows works from its collection at the Eurostar Terminal at London’s St. Pancras Station, and the Rijksmuseum has an exhibition space in Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport.

In the mood for some unconventional art? Cheeming Boey draws on styrofoam coffee cups with a sharpie pen. (http://www.linesandcolors.com/)


  1. Calvin, that’s pretty cool. Cooler than the lame pic I found of Boey’s styrofoam cups, which were MUCH cooler in his marking pics (but they were copyrighted).

    Looking at those pics at your link, it does seem like another world. I think we need to be transported at least several times a day. 🙂
