PFFR-LEGACY IIX

Brooklyn based production company/art collective/band/enigma PFFR are known for their outrageous humor and lo-fi production.  They have collaborated on shows such as Wonder Showzen, Xavier: Renegade Angel, and the sadly short-lived Doggy Fizzle Televizzle.

If you are lucky enough to be in Los Angeles you can catch their antics next month at “Legacy IIX”. The mysterious show opens April 3rd at Synchronicity Space and runs until May 1st. Your guess is as good as mine what might happen.  Flyer for the show and other works after the cut.

Esteve paint

Bizarre and beautiful describes the work of Barcelona based artist Esteve. Each art piece was created with much attention to detail and personal touch. Esteve’s work is almost like a puzzle which makes your wonder what message he is trying to send. Curiosity is what I feel when I see Esteve’s portrayal of humans and animals, but also excitement, because they are truly unique to see.

Jason Vivona is a California based artist whose colorful work brightens your day. His abstract work follows a unique technique which combines different mediums to create one image. His work is intriguing, mysterious, and alluring which draws me to it. You can also find his work in a in a line of skateboards he designed for WE RIDE AT NIGHT….

Peat Duggins

Watercolor, gouache and ink paintings by once Austin, TX now Cambridge, MA artist Peat Duggins.  The detail images are telling of a cartoon-apocalypse and I have to say I’m not a morbid or pessimistic person, however I enjoy dooms-day movies and I’m growing fond on such themes in artwork where humans are gone and nature takes over.  This is different though, it’s sweet.

It’s possible this is the most intriguing food-as-art I’ve seen yet!  San Francisco artist Liz Hickok sculpts, molds and casts scale models of urban city landscapes using Jell-O.

Digital photo collages and a pencil sketch by artist Jelle Martens.  These remind me of much cooler versions of landscape prints my grandma has in her house above a couch.

Linn Olofsdotter

Strange, surreal illustrations by Swedish artist, Linn Olofsdotter.  They’re sweet and scary – simultaneously mechanical and pliable like they’re sculpted out of soft clay over kinked wires.

She was educated in Europe and the US in advertising and design, lived in Brazil and currently calls Portland home  – such of mix of cultures!
