My Kid Could Paint That

Another riveting documentary from my files. If any of you hope to have a genius artist baby in the future you’ll want to watch this doc.

 

 

 

 

My Kid Could Paint That is a 2007 documentary film by director Amir Bar-Lev (who also directed 2000′s Fighter). The movie follows the early artistic career of Marla Olmstead, a young girl from Binghamton, NY who gains fame first as a child prodigy painter of abstract art, and then becomes the subject of controversy concerning whether she truly completed the paintings herself or did so with her parents’ assistance and/or direction. The film was bought by Sony Pictures Classics in 2007 after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. Marla’s father, an amateur painter, describes how Marla watches him paint, wants to help, and is given her own canvas and supplies.

Minimal With A Dash Of Pop

 

 

Stas Volovik  paints some nice minimal abstract paintings that have just a hint of pop to them. There’s a few good collages on his portfolio site as well but the paintings take the cake.

Beautiful/Decay Issue: 1 update

Hi Everyone,

A few weeks back we announced the new format of Beautiful/Decay. It’s been great getting all the positive feedback and support from all of you. Within the first week we received over 300 new and renewed subscriptions!

We have 2 months until or first issue comes out and I wanted to urge all of those who want to get a copy of the magazine to subscribe as it’s looking like we will sell out of subscriptions within the next month. This means that issues will not be available on newsstands and only a handful of stores internationally will have copies.

If you aren’t familiar with our new direction you can read about it HERE

And to subscribe you can go HERE

The new issue is by far our best, especially the cover which will be adorned by hand drawn art by Kyle Thomas. Yes that means every single copy of Beautiful/Decay issue: 1 will be a one of a kind, unique item!

Hey Slugger

 

 

Japanese American artist Hiro Kurata makes some great paintings depicting baseball players in various situations. The paintings remind me of a mix between Gary Taxali meets Chris Johanson.
