Beautiful/Decay has collaborated with a fresh crop of explosive new talents from the art and design world to create this Summer ’09 season. As usual, the t-shirt graphics range from bold, iconic graphics to playfully eclectic….but all share B/D’s signature aesthetic of bright, creative imagery that pushes the envelope of t-shirt design. Some talents from our roster include Sakke Soini, Kittozutto, Christopher Gray, Dekore, Oliver Hibert, Clara Terne and beyond. Pick up the latest styles on our online shop!

It’s not taxidermy, it’s feltidermy! Girl Savage sells handmade plush creatures mounted on busts. These little guys are so whimsical and best of all, no animals were harmed in the making!
Martin Hugo’s sketchbooks détourné the commercial imagery he encountered while designing corporate fashion in the “Empire State.” These books read as Hugo’s coping mechanism for trafficking in cultures he actively disdains. Using styles from esoteric hardcore music and quotidian visual culture, Hugo degrades and problematizes “high-brow” mainstays like the fashion industry, the contemporary art world, and our global plutocracy. But these minimal collages would be a bore if they were just well-designed, on-the-nose crits of capitalism’s look and effect; whether it’s through his deft rebranding of The Whitney (it rhymes), or by imploring us to “Support Our Predator Drones,” it’s Hugo’s gallows humor that makes them shine. He is able to look into the abyss of American culture and find the ha-has we need to get through the (last) day(s).
Two collections of Hugo’s artwork are available: Drug Topics Zine AKA Whole Hog Zine and 6 Months of Shit, which he co-authored with Shawn Khemsurov. Another publication, Marlito’s Way Zine, will come out this June. Until then, check out more of his artwork after the jump.
Yes this is a tad cheesy but I have a soft spot for anything LEGO related, especially if it’s a life size, actually working cello!
Will Bryant is a designer who excels at following design trends. His use of triangles is both ironic and non-ironic. He also has an illustration style that is very reminiscent of a lot of other illustrators working today. Overall, Mr. Bryant is fantastic at creating work following the lead of a select few trendsetters.
Fantastic works by Hell’o Monsters.
Some of Los Angeles based photographer Michael Flores’ awesome work.
