Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of the most well-represented movies in pop culture art. The reason being it's such a vibrant, wide-ranging movie, it offers almost innumerable visual interpretations. One such example is this new one by Tom Whalen, which is chock-full of detail and eye-popping brightness.

There's a lot of things to love about Wonder Woman — but the movie's climactic battle between Diana and Ares is one of the weaker aspects of the film, with many ridiculing the God of War's mustachioed visage popping out from under his spiky helmet. It turns out that Ares could've looked a lot meaner.
Sure, we didn't get to see the Avengers: Infinity War footage that wowed Hall H in San Diego this weekend — but we do get a tiny glimpse at the movie in the form of this truly spectacular three-part poster Marvel had at the convention, giving us our first look at Earth's mightiest heroes, the sinister threat they will face, and his glove with glowy lights.
From a purely technical standpoint, typewriters have long outlived their usefulness. Unless you plan on driving into a ravine and getting stuck in a cabin for weeks on end, with nothing to do but crank out the next great novel, a computer (or even a tablet) is the superior option. So, what to do with all the typewriters? Transform them into amazing works of art of course.
Decades after his death in 1989, painter Salvador Dalí is continuing to make art, or at the very least, something surreal. Last month, a Spanish judge ordered the artist's body to be exhumed for a paternity suit filed by a television psychic. The fortune teller, Pilar Abel, claims she is Dalí's daughter and has been fighting to get the artist's DNA since at least 2007. Now that Dalí's corpse has finally been exhumed, his embalmer is happy to report the artist's signature moustache has remained perfectly coiffed.
Scott Park's art is always notable for its careful indexing of everything you could ever want to see of a given subject. Want to see pop culture's most famous cars in Mad Max's world? The badarse women of film? How about every Star Wars vehicle, to scale? Well now, Park has illustrated all the moments that make RoboCop.
Video: Scientists trying to unlock the secrets of our universe's origin need to look no further than the photography studio of Thomas Blanchard and Oilhack. By mixing nothing more than paints, oil and soap, the artists manage to create colourful miniature universes full of strange, tiny alien worlds.
Like Jackson Pollock, Piet Mondrian, and other abstract artists before her, Crystal Ma creates colourful masterpieces that are as much about the creative process as they are about the finished product. As you watch Ma pour rainbow after flowing rainbow onto a canvas, it becomes hard to care what the final result even looks like.
Mondo is home to some of our favourite nerdy art, and responsible for making a certain members of our staff spend a lot of time pondering just where the hell to put their latest purchase. But if you've run out of wall space or missed out on the oodles of limited posters the company's done, good news — a new book is collecting some of its best.
Video: Using strong magnetic fields and radio waves, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines let us peer inside the human body as if it were sliced into thousands of layers. The same effect has been achieved here, letting you fly through the massive Sofa Hotel in Istanbul. But do they make MRI machines that big?
Video: YouTube's Draw with Jazza, also known as Josiah Brooks, is a talented artist who occasionally challenges himself to only work with random office supplies. For his latest piece he worked exclusively with Liquid Paper, a white, fast-drying paint once used to correct mistakes on an ancient device known as a typewriter.
Nearly eight decades since its release, The Wizard of Oz is still a movie that delights audiences of every age. And we do mean every age. Sure, it works for adults who grew up with it and kids who are just being introduced to it, but it also has qualities that make it work in those combative middle years too.
