Benedict Radcliffe’s Turbo Lambos

At first glance at London-based Benedict Radcliffe’s work, I thought, “Oh, a computer generated drawing of a car…okay.” Then I immediately realize it is not as boring as I had first assumed! No! These are, full scale, actual wire-frame representations of a Lamborghini, Subaru, etc.

Adam Simpson Is Trapped in an elevator for 41 hours

I believe I just took in my daily needed intake of design, color, typography, and humor in Adam Simpson’s wonderful collection of illustrations. My favorite has to be Trapped in an elevator for 41 hours. I’m sure you all remember that video. Terrible, terrible situation turned into a charming, funny illustration. My giggles are echoing around the B/D office as we speak.

Robbie Conal: The Missing Link

I first met Robbie Conal back in 2001 when B/D was just a part time hobby run out of my bedroom. He was one of the first LA artists that I met, and we immediately hit it off. Fast forward a decade, now Robbie is a great friend of mine, and a loyal Cult Of Decay supporter. He is the type of artist that gives his time, energy, and sharp wit to anyone and everyone without thinking about what they can do for him. Over the years we’ve featured Robbie on our cover (you can get a copy here), included him in shows we’ve curated, released videos about his work, and had him write an amazing article about his painting mentor and hero Leon Golub (You can get a copy of that issue here). Needless to say we back him 200%.

Robbie is having a much deserved show opening this week in LA at Country Club. If you’re a fan of what we do at Beautiful/Decay then you must go to this show to support the original King of Postering, and the ultimate Mad Man of Paint. If you’ve only seen his work on the street then this show will be a true eye opener, as all of Robbie’s posters are actually prints of paintings with hundreds of layers of rich paint.  So join me, the rest of the B/D team, and help celebrate one of LA’s great artistic treasures.

November 20th-December 22nd 2010
Opening Reception: November 20th 6-9pm

Ted Gahl’s Paired Down

Ted Gahl is making some beautifully paired down paintings.  They are amazingly suggestive for the minuscule amount of information they present.  The painting above feels, to me, like portraits in profile, but is it really?  I’ve never seen a face like these pink hieroglyphs.  It’s interesting what a painting can make you think you see, and with just a few clues.  Gahl is in a bunch of upcoming shows: The Power Of Selection 3, curated by Ryan Travis Christian at Western Exhibitions, in Chicago; 2020 at the Above Second Gallery, in Hong Kong; and Color Me Bad(d): Joshua Abelow, Ted Gahl, and Hugh Scott Douglas at Nudashank in Baltimore.
