Want to see what kind of music video a bit of creativity and $200,a two car garage, soldering iron, handmade clay molds, christmas lights, and no CGI can produce? If so watch this great promo video for Reds by Houses directed by LAMAR+NIK after the jump!
Michael Caine’s current work situates American political figures, both past and present, in altered 18th century paintings and Christian religious kitsch, referencing scenes from Alice in Wonderland, Bambi, and the Wizard of Oz. Drawing on the lineage of political cartooning in these pictures, Caines treats Richard Nixon, JFK, and Carl Rove, among others, with surprising tenderness and humor.
Gottfried Helnwein’s watercolors from the 1970′s tell a frightening story of pain, abuse, and brutal crimes.
Hannu Karjalainen’s photos of paint covered figures are absolutely amazing. I love how the paint takes on the texture and detail of the fabric and brings out every single stitch.
Painter of demons and all around good guy (and goofball) Skinner recently relaunched his website with literally hundreds of delicious and frighteningly good drawings, paintings, and illustrations. To celebrate the site launch Skinner also decided to make some hilarious videos talking smack, crossing out wack taggers, and telling ya’ll why he is the illest graffiti legend out there. Once you watch the full video after the jump you’ll be asking yourself “how come this guys not included in the Art In The Streets show at MOCA ?”
What the inside of my brain looks like after a long day of art making about Beautiful/Decay working!
Yuko Oda’s installations are bizarre colorful pieces full of epic narrative. Her drawings provide an interesting shift going for a more ornate, pattern oriented look.
There’s nothing like having a ladies touch when it comes to street art. Case in point, the work of paris based Juliana Santacruz Herrera. Juliana fills in potholes and cracks in the cities streets with yarn and knitted piles of colorful material. It’s as if the ground has cracked open to reveal an alternative psychedelic world full of color and wonder.
