London artist Louis Masai has created some astounding street art depicting dying bees and strong messages such as “When we go, we’re taking you all with us!” and “No more bees. No more pollen. No more plants. No more animals. No more humans.”

These images are truly beautiful and I’m happy to share these images and raise awareness about the importance of bees and their direct impact on our existence.

Aganetha Dyck has been creating artwork with tens of thousands of tiny helpers for years. Dyck – a Canadian artist – has collaborated with live honeybees to help her create some of the most stunning and fascinating sculptures using various materials and natural beeswax, provided by the bees.

The above video shows an exhibit called Guest Workers, which features live honeybees in action. Some of Dyck’s previous work includes figurines and other objects that have been covered with beeswax comb, directly from within the hive.

For more information, and plenty more photos, visit Dyck’s web site.

Keeping calm while keeping bees. A small play on words. I thought I’d whip up this poster as a spin off the original Keep Calm and Carry On poster. Feel free to share it if you’d like. I’ve provided the full size image on Flickr.

My friend sent me an awesome beekeeping video this morning, so thought I’d share it here. Made by Hand creates films featuring things we collect, consume, use and share. Their latest video, called No 3 The Beekeeper features a backyard farmer and rooftop beekeeper named Megan Paska from Brooklyn, NY.
