Bjorn Copeland

Bjorn Copeland

Bjorn Copeland mashes up neon colors, geometric patterns, and disparate collaged elements into one big distorted reality. This Brooklyn based artist also makes up one third of the experimental rock group Black Dice, and creates all the bands posters, artwork and t-shirts. Sound a little bit like to me like a similar path that this other guy Raymond Pettibon took all the way to the top. Keep up the good work Bjorn!

Amy Gartrell

Amy Gartrell

Radical ceramics, paintings and drawings by the talented Amy Gartrell. Do these images make anyone else think of 80′s super fresh flavor, complete with the crazy squiggly lines? Her show “Whatever and Ever” is on view at Daniel Reich Gallery in NYC until June 26th, so go check it out!

Scott Campbell

Scott Campbell

Scott Campbell is quickly becoming a popular name in the downtown NYC art scene. Already a world-renowned tattoo artist, Campbell also dabbles in the world of fine arts, making a variety of works including his signature stacks of laser-cut currency. His recent show “If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long” at OH WOW gallery in NYC had its detractors, but that didn’t stop it from being a huge success. Following in the footsteps of Mike Giant, Dr. Lakra, and Sailor Jerry, Campbell might just be on his way towards a bright and productive career.

Phillip Fivel Nessen

Based in Brooklyn, Phillip Fivel Nessen is the major creative force behind Sparrow V. Swallow design studio, as well as a prominent contributer to our very own B/D Flickr pool! An homage to construction paper, Nessen’s clean line work and often muted color palette suggest a simpler time: a time when men were men. Carmelized onions? No thank you, I’ll be having rattlesnake on my hotdog.

Andrea Berretta

Andrea Berretta’s design work is just so happy. Even the weird serpent/monster creatures look like something I would want to play charades with. His energetic, hand-drawn type gives his work an inviting atmosphere. Like, after seeing this, I’m totally ready for happy hour.
