Studio Visit: Sherin Guirguis

Sherin Guirguis

I first met Sherin Guirguis at USC while giving a talk about B/D. Sherin teaches in the design department so I assumed that she was primarily a graphic designer. Over the years we’ve run into each other here and there but never really visited each others studio. A few months back Sherin stopped by my studio to check out some work. When I went to return the favor I didn’t find stacks of design work but a studio full of both paintings and sculpture that were at once precise and technical while organic and fluid.  Here are some shots from the studio visit.

Oakland based painter Jake Watling creates paintings that are both festive and frightening at the same time. For some reason they remind me of a circus gone mad!

Guerrilla Girls

Interesting presentation at the MOMA about the infamous Guerilla Girls. If you’re not familiar with them here’s a blurb from their website.

“We’re a bunch of anonymous females who take the names of dead women artists as pseudonyms and appear in public wearing gorilla masks. We have produced posters, stickers, books, printed projects, and actions that expose sexism and racism in politics, the art world, film and the culture at large. We use humor to convey information, provoke discussion, and show that feminists can be funny. We wear gorilla masks to focus on the issues rather than our personalities. Dubbing ourselves the conscience of culture, we declare ourselves feminist counterparts to the mostly male tradition of anonymous do-gooders like Robin Hood, Batman, and the Lone Ranger. “

Awesome Video Of The Day Part 2: Malice In Wonderland

 

Sex and drugs go hand in hand so it’s no surprise that this trippy animation by Vince Collins has equal parts sex and acid flashback induced morphing. Ps. it was made in 1983 which makes it even better!

Awesome Video Of The Day: Nuit Blanche

 

I’m a few days late but I should have posted this video by Spy Films for Valentines day. It explores a fleeting moment between two strangers, revealing their brief connection in a hyper real fantasy. Kind of romantical if you ask me. You can also watch the making of the video after the jump!
