Brandon Wilson’s Scanography

I’m loving this scanographic imagery by Portland based artist, Brandon F. Wilson. While Wilson does not explain his specific process on his website, I like to imagine the artist running through vast landscapes in Oregon, with a large scanner, to create these distorted images. More after the jump!

Skwak joins the Mr. Chiizu crew

If you’ve followed Beautiful/Decay you know that Skwak has collaborated with us dozens of times creating apparel, posters, gallery exhibitions and most importantly his wildly popular cover story in Beautiful/Decay Issue J .  One of his most exciting new projects is his collaboration with our friends over at Mr. Chiizu, an artist’s photo decoration iphone app. He signed on with Mr. Chiizu earlier this year to create a theme that lets his fans get inside his always funny and sometimes grotesque illustrious world. Skwak’s signature style lent themselves well to the photo frames and stickers he created for his theme. We caught up with Skwak to see what he has been up to.

Stephen Silk

Stephen Silk began practicing gyotaku in 2008. Gyotaku is a Japanese printing method that uses actual fish to make art. Ink or paint is rubbed on the fish allowing an incredibly textured print directly onto the paper. The lumped paint and palette match the New Hampshire coastal seascapes in oil fusing a really cohesive collection completely reflective of the area and its subjects.

Dimitri Karakostas

Dimitri Karakostas is a hard working photographer from Toronto, Canada. He’s made a whole pile of new work since we last checked in. His sometimes beautiful, sometimes beautifully garish images are the result of his dedication to the analog medium. Rejecting common digital editing has opened his work to a whole world of great tactile manipulations and experimentation, techniques often overlooked by other young photographers.

And hey, Dimitri also co-founded Blood of the Young Zine in ’08. Its a great project aimed at promoting and publishing new photographers, creatives, and troublemakers. If you’re in Toronto until Dec. 10th make sure to check out his work in the Dying Breed group exhibition at 285 Dundas W. This Canadian doesn’t quit!

Fashion and Animals Collide With Fashimals

Fashimals is a mysterious group of photoshop wizards who combine our friends from the animal kingdom with the hippest fashion statements from the streets of Williamsburgh, NY to the runways in Milan, Italy. How about a Terry Richardson weasel like creature (pictured above) or slick looking lizard in a three piece suit (pictured after the jump?) Fashimals brings all these looks to you and more with a great sense of humor and impeccable style. What else can we ask for?

Zero Cents- Casual Carnality

 

Zero Cents is a Tel Aviv-based artist  with a furious repertoire of grotesque, figurative imagery. Found both in galleries and on walls, these works go beyond  the average “get-under-your-skin” fare, as they are rendered in a seemingly care-free, playful fashion. Taking us right to the point where we may be too overwhelmed by subject matter to connect, Zero Cents redeems everything with light dustings of spray paint, undeniably human brushstrokes, and sardonic installations.
