NoLoveLost, aka Gareth Rice, is an artist, designer, and illustrator based out of New Zealand. His work has been used and featured in print advertising, editorial design, and campaigns for K-Swiss, Oakley, and Redken. His graphics are energetic, and I like how his illustrations organically meld with the photographs they are incorporated with.  The above artwork is part of a new series intended to “give human based subjects a flawed final resolve, rather than a perfect one, which is so common in our industry.” Whether his illustrations are for a shoe company or for himself, you’ll find yourself doing a double take, just to grasp everything going on.

Interiority (2007), 35.75 x 47.75

Artist Brian Cooper‘s paintings explore the idea of landscape and space through abstract representation. His work features surreal situations that appear to explode from their ‘real’ counterparts. Check out the way he uses depth by contrasting the ” tension between flat and far” to create eerie and fantastical environments. I love how, as the viewer, I get sucked into the padded rooms and sharp angles of his creative, dali-esque compositions. The structures and strange shapes become more enticing through Cooper’s use of rich colors. There’s a cool tangible quality to the visual textures of the abstract surfaces, especially in Bulge, posted after the jump.

B/D Movie Time this Wed: “Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?”

urban_jacksonpollock

We continue our month long series of free outdoor screenings at Space 15Twenty this Wednesday, May 20th, with “Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?”

 

The screenings are projected on the large outdoor screen located next to the Snack Bar. Seating is limited so arrive early to secure a chair, but if you get there late, no worries you can always sit on the floor or bring your own chair!

 

“Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?” takes a more tongue-in-cheek look at the inner workings of the stuffy art elite than last week’s screening, “Basquiat.” “Who the…” is seen through the eyes of a beer-drinking, sailor-mouthed woman who may have accidentally purchased a Pollock from a thrift store- and the ridiculous rigamarole she must go through to have it verified.

 

Drinks, snacks and popcorn as usual are available at Snack Bar!

 

“Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?”- Wed, May 20
8:00pm
Space 15twenty
1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd

Why I will never get tired of Second Life


Export to World (Linda Kostowski and Sascha Pohflepp) seeks to comment ironically on the design and production of merchandise in virtual worlds. At Ars Electronica in Linz, retail space on Marienstrasse was temporarily converted into a shop like those found in Second Life. Large scale display ads showed what’s for sale: custom-made or purchased virtual objects that shoppers could buy at a price determined daily by the current Linden dollar/euro exchange rate. Instead of the acquired object suddenly appearing in the purchaser’s inventory, though, the proud owner received a a two-dimensional paper representation of it which he/she could manually fit together into a three-dimensional object on site. The final results are paper representations of digital representations of real objects, including all the flaws that copying entails.

Anvil

Okay Documentary lovers I just saw this doc last night and I loved it. Imagine Spinal Tap meets Forest Gump! It’s still in select theaters so if you can go see it on the big screen.

 

 

In the early 1980s, the Canadian metal band Anvil wrote the thrash blueprint for followers like Anthrax, Metallica, and Slayer. While those bands went on to become metal titans, Anvil faded into obscurity–so much that decades later, the band’s core members–guitarist Steve “Lips” Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner–work menial day-jobs even as they continue to churn out little-heard records and dream of rock-star success. Director Sacha Gervasi (who was once a roadie for the band) chronicles the duo’s efforts to regain their ’80s glory in the funny and touching documentary ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL.

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.
