Mark Jenkins as been putting a lot of fun stuff in the streets over the years. His street installations are some of the best and truly bring a smile of curiosity to most on lookers. The one pictured above is my personal favorite, but make sure to check out the other fun installations coming from the wacky mind of Mark.
This is one of the most visually pleasing videos I have seen in a long time. Creator Makoto Yabuki did a wonderful job making this beautifully psychedelic film.
Spanish illustrator Fede Yankelevich has been creating some pretty awesome work. Although I can’t seem to find much information on him, he is quite the talented guy and the work speaks for itself.
Well rounded photographer Laura Austin is starting to make an impact in the extreme sports world. Originally from Vermont, Laura is now living in Newport, California, where she has been working on a few fun projects. This girl is rad. She is always willing to go the next mile to get the shot. Whether she is freezing in a tree in the middle of the backcountry or banged up on the front row fence at a concert, Laura will roll home with some pretty awesome photos.
No this image was not computer generated. The rainbow was manually made with 5,000 Pantone color chips glued onto wood boards. The project focused on promoting Pantone color guide books to art college students and faculty, and to convince them that Pantone has the most color selection for their printing guidance. To grab their attention, they re-created a rainbow (8 meter in length and height of 4.5 meters) consisting of Pantone color chips in the middle of college’s park. Pretty rad.
Henrijs Preiss was born in Latvia, and has lived in Riga, Berlin and London. His Russian Icon and Italian Renaissance influenced paintings are pretty sweet. Preiss translates archetypal symbols from Islam, Judaism and Christianity into textured paintings composed of gold, silver and red. His abstract paintings are constructed in a process that recalls the practice of alchemy. Keep the medieval paintings coming!
Meatwater, a line of 60 plus meat-inspired beverages and photographic prints, is currently showing at 303 Grand in Williamsburg but its depth may be best explored at Dinnerinabottle.com. Varieties like Italian Sausage, Tandoori Chicken and Wiener Schnitzel have received raves from beverage trade magazines (none of which found a press release with quotes from a “Governor Rose Selavy” suspect) and a writer for the LA Times described it as “the most disturbing thing I have seen on the internet in a month.”
Queries about the cost of an actual bottle are met with a winking “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it,” but for a lucky few who make it to the closing party Aug. 22nd at 303 Grand @ 7pm, tall glasses of Pork Dumpling may be on offer.
Krautkrämer in his own words on what Meatwater is, and what Meatwater can never be.
