Paul Loubet’s illustrations remind me of brightly colored Pinatas full of small treats, fun, mouth watering surprises. The above illustration is my favorite out of the bunch. Would make a nice addition to my collection of artist postcards and prints.
Collaborative artist group L017 uses waste materials and discarded objects to create their work. My favorite pieces are these record jesus works.
Wow the cinematography, costumes, animals, and effects in Woodkid’s Iron video is epic! Watch the full video after the jump!
Folkert De Jong is hands down one of my absolute sculptors working today. So much so that in 2008 we did an exclusive interview with him and put him on the cover of Beautiful/Decay Issue: V. Since then Folkert has gone on to create an impressive body of work, each one outdoing the next. Opening April 1st Fokert is back at it again with a solo show at James Cohan Gallery in NYC showing a completely new body of work. His work is refined, grotesque, experimental and takes risks. In other words it’s amazing. This is one of the rare times that I wish I lived in NY so if you’re anywhere near the big apple head down to Folkert’s opening and report back to me. More images below from the centerpiece of the show titled Operation Harmony after the jump.
Markus Oehlen’s saturated paintings go back and forth between figuration and abstraction to show us a view into an apocalyptic,black light lit, radioactive future.
Immediacy and quick brush work are the main ingredients in Benjamin King’s loose landscapes.
I’ve said it a million times but I’m always blown away by the talented artists we have in the Beautiful/Decay community. I discovered Alnya’s work while going through the B/D Creative Pic Pool on Flickr and fell in love with the rich textures and shadow Alnya creates with hatching and stippling. This work is serious!!!
