B/D Intern Alumni and all around cool gal Alexis Kaneshiro has curated a great exhibition at Gallery Nucleus celebrating the almighty hand drawn typography. Long before we had computers, adobe software, and other mass printing services we used our own two hands to create beautiful typography for everything from signs to packaging for products. The show opens May 14th until June 6th so head on over to the gallery, give Alexis a high five and check out some killer experimental type.
It’s almost dinner time in LA and I’m thinking about skipping the main course and going straight to dessert. It’s going to be one hell of a feast folks. It will most likely look something like this video by Castrovalva.
I love it when you rediscover an artist for the second time! You may remember our post last year about Shary Boyle’s beautiful and grotesque ceramic work. Well I happened to run into her site again today and was surprised that I had completely missed her fantastic paintings and drawings. It’s like finding an extra cookie in a bag that you thought was empty!
Balint Zsako’s drawings work speaks to our contemporary anxieties about sexuality and human intimacy. His works are described as quirky, disturbing, otherworldly, and a little bit dirty. See Balint’s work in a group show at The Proposition in NYC until june 26th.
Steven Tabbutt’s rich paintings of refined hairy ladies, robot beasts, and spotted monsters are absolutely amazing. I can get lost in his works for hours and get transplanted to a mysterious world where nothing is what it seems.
