"Renegade Rhombus"

"Renegade Rhombus"

Aaron K is a comic book artist/musician/taxi driver living in San Francisco who keeps shunga alive. I’ve been longtime LiveJournal buds with him but never really got to see his work fully. Last week though, I received a zine he’d sent (preview of a 60 page book he hopes to complete in the future) and it’s awesome! With the way he writes and weaves the awkwardness of the scenarios in each story into the page and ink, you allllmost don’t get the catch line until you’ve already turned the page and then turn back to make sure it was there. After the jump are some pages from various zines as well as from “I Forgot What I Wanted.”

Eugenio Merinos

Hilarious sculptures from Eugenio Merinos, infused with a large dose of biting political and art-world satire. Think Ron Mueck with a large ax to grind. With appearances at Artefiera 2010 in Bologna, and ARCO 2010 in Madrid, 2010 promises to be a big year for this up and coming Spaniard. More at ADN Galeria.

Dictaphone Parcel

Dictaphone Parcel is an animation based on a sound recorded with a dictaphone travelling secretly inside a parcel. As the hidden recorder travels through the global mail system, from London to Helsinki, it captures the unexpected. We hear a mixture of abstract sounds, various types of transport and even discussions between the mail workers. The animation visualizes this journey by creating an imaginary documentary.

Chris Burnett

CalArts seems to always churn out great designers. Chris Burnett is no exception. His portfolio is full of work that lives and dies by the grid but doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Italian artist Mimmo Rubino, also known as Rub Kandy, plays with the city.  His art’s relationship with the city and its citizens is interactive, even fun.  His newest project is simple but imaginative.  Rubino uses an urban mainstay as a canvas for his spray paint work: a cement truck.  While the mixer spins, Rubino keeps a spraying can of paint steady.  Repeating the process with various colors eventually covers the mixer in near perfect stripes.  Appropriately, the piece is titled Revolver.

Adrienne Allebe’s Morphing Enviornment


Adrienne Allebe’s exquisite drawings are a visual manifestation of the events happing in our enviornment. Renderings of microscopic organisms morph, blend, and sit atop imagery of man-made objects. Endangered and threatened animals and environments are drawn and painted so that they appear to transform, disappear and reappear in order to reinforce the tenuous condition of their existence. And forms appear to float in and out of focus, sometimes peacefully, sometimes violently, evoking the uneasy merging of human industry and technology with natural ecosystems.
