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.

PJ Richardson from Laundrymat: KDU X Diesel “Only The Brave”

Laundrymat

 

We have images of PJ Richardson‘s submission for the Diesel x Keystone Design Union (KDU) “Only The Brave” Exhibition, which opened on April 30th in NYC. I love how he juxtaposes gentle greens, salmon pinks, and loud reds with equally vibrant, downright playful monsters and type. All of these visual elements make this piece particularly mesmerizing!

You’re sure to find a little cynicism and humor in his mixed media projects, wherever they may be viewed, in editorials, on skateboards, or in sculpture. check out how he uses illustration and collage…
