Get Social:

Hanna Von Goeler

The economy is down the pipes. Experts say its only going to get worse. But seriously, isn’t it innovative art like this we need to get this country out of this fiscal toilet? During the height of the great depression money was so valueless in Europe that people were burning it to keep warm: uncreative! 

Hanna Von Goelers work incorporates paint, collage, and money to explain cash as a cultural artifact vs. cash as a mass produced item.

A sandwich chewed in the shape of a gun; genius!

New Beautiful/Decay wallets!

"Satellite" by Sentimental Soycheese


"Throw Up" by Skwak

Beautiful/Decay recently teamed up with Poketo to create custom wallets! The first is the  interstellar design “Satellite” by anonymous art collective Sentimental Soycheese, featuring a B/D spaceship in a gradient lit space-scape. Second is “Throw Up” by Skwak, whose main character is a multi-eyed blue behemoth barfing a macrocosmic selection of minute monsters. 

 

The wallet contains 3 slots for credit cards, a bill slot, and a change purse. It’s 8.5″ x 3.75″ open, but folds perfectly to fit in your pocket (4.25″ x 3.75″). All wallets are limited edition and all online orders come with a matching badge/pin too!

 

Sold on our online shop!

Peter Schuyff

Peter Schuyff’s favorite terms to describe himself are “irreverent,” “obsessive, ” and “spiritual. ” By irreverence, he means his confidence in what he is doing, his casual acceptance of an abstract vocabulary. The obsessiveness is in his technique. And through this process, his work becomes imbued with a kind of spirituality an apparition seems to build up within the layers of paint, and the light emanating from the canvas is, perhaps, a hint of its presence…he began painting one patterned surface over another, and then began to add semi translucent white grids to the two layers, further confusing the relationship between the patterns. Slightly claustrophobic, these paintings have been described as padded cells, albeit ones through which light mysteriously penetrates.

Harm van den Dorpel

I feel like if Harm van den Dorpel’s gave a seminar about his work that he would be completely deadpanned and really matter-of-fact about it. Even though some of them look like 20-minute photoshop exercises, I can’t help but be mystified.

Also, definitely watch the clips with the guys lying around the hallway of an apartment building. There is definitely some magic to the mediocrity.

Sarah Emerson

“In my paintings I use the violence and romantic sadness of the natural landscape to provoke a sense of fragility and melancholic instability beneath the surface of the image. I like to use a variety of images that are beautiful and sad with natural elements that can also be seen to parallel the worst parts of our human animalistic behaviors.” -Sarah Emerson

 

There is a sense in Sarah’s work of sadness and impending doom that i really enjoy.

They sort of look like if you put them on you’d suddenly be able to fly.The nice thing is, all profits from shoes purchased wholesale at the upcoming Live Stock event on February 19th in Vancouver will be donated to the Global Fund. (Flyer after the jump). Look rad, give back. Win-win.
