I imagine these graphic designs, by Hong Kong artist Jerry Luk, in tranquility chambers in the near future.
Colorful acrylic paintings by artist Ryan Pierce – surreal, possibly telling of an impending doom, the absence of man leaves animals to wander through our remains. I wonder, can you eat birds like this?
Tim Sullivan has created a sensory experience at the Steve Turner Contemporary not to be missed if you’re in the LA area this weekend. Large, 4-ft polycarbonate plastic discs will play modified versions of songs like “Hotel California” from the gallery walls in addition to playing from a large record player all created by Sullivan.
The artist’s work “continues to be inspired by various subcultures of California|Hollywood, hippies, death cults, sun worship, surf culture and Heavy Metal|and how they entered pop culture..”
This is awesome…
In the ongoing iPhone/Blackberry feud I must admit I sit comfortably in the Blackberry camp. Nevertheless, I like iPhone – especially when I see it’s full, non-game potential come shining through the front lines. That being said, Joey Reyes, a photographer in NYC, has taken some particularly spectacular images, shooting and editing them on his iPhone in a collection called LOMOSNAPS.
Okay, I like word art. Also, I like cookies. Nothing like a fresh batch of warm cookies. Now imagine Helvetica font speeding down the street, crashing head-on into unsuspecting Sugar Cookie – Beverly Hsu knows the result. You can find out after the jump!
Artist/illustrator Jason Asato of Honolulu, took a break from digital media to sketch up these grim pencil drawings. Their vacant and focused, eerie stairs feel calm and sincere – they’re sad but hey, it’s alright…they’re okay with that.
At quick glance, these manga illustrations by Japanese artist, Shohei Otomo appear to be traditional – black, white, red. Not quite though: tough Geisha playing table tennis, far from. Such a violent spin with these renderings, you really sense the impending impacts. Fun.
Dido Fontana‘s photography-vérité, is candid, relaxed, naturalistic (okay, not natural for everyone) and funny. Using film and developer, acid and dark rooms he discovers his girls and their midnight romps are beautiful, it just might be their off day and that’s okay.
