Oliver Kosta-Théfaine is a Parisian artist who works in a number of media. But my favorite works of his are those that involve the absurdly simple technique of standing on a ladder with a disposable cigarette lighter and burning patterns onto a ceiling. [via Dude Craft]

    My friends who painted dorms for the summer came across something similar, except it said “Schaefer: The one beer to have when you’re having more than one.”

    Art is subjective, I suppose.
