Michael Caine’s Political Fairytales

Michael Caine’s current work situates American political figures, both past and present, in altered 18th century paintings and Christian religious kitsch, referencing scenes from Alice in Wonderland, Bambi, and the Wizard of Oz. Drawing on the lineage of political cartooning in these pictures, Caines treats Richard Nixon, JFK, and Carl Rove, among others, with surprising tenderness and humor.

Artist Of The Day: Hannu Karjalainen

Hannu Karjalainen’s photos of paint covered figures are absolutely amazing. I love how the paint takes on the texture and detail of the fabric and brings out every single stitch.

Skinner, A Graffiti Legend?

 

Painter of demons and all around good guy (and goofball) Skinner recently relaunched his website with literally hundreds of delicious and frighteningly good drawings, paintings, and illustrations. To celebrate the site launch Skinner also decided to make some hilarious videos talking smack, crossing out wack taggers, and telling ya’ll why he is the illest graffiti legend out there. Once you watch the full video after the jump you’ll be asking yourself “how come this guys not included in the Art In The Streets show at MOCA ?”

Yuko Oda

Yuko Oda’s installations are bizarre colorful pieces full of epic narrative. Her drawings provide an interesting shift going for a more ornate, pattern oriented look.

Knitted Street Interventions

There’s nothing like having a ladies touch when it comes to street art. Case in point, the work of paris based  Juliana Santacruz Herrera. Juliana fills in potholes and cracks in the cities streets with yarn and knitted piles of colorful material. It’s as if the ground has cracked open to reveal an alternative psychedelic world full of color and wonder.

J Dilla x Steve Smith

Yesterday on our Twitter we got some nice podcast suggestions, most of which were Hip-Hop oriented — shout out to all the heads out there that support B/D. To extend on the topic, I thought it would be nice to highlight the talented Steve Smith (an illustrator, animator, and all around video guy). Steve recently put together a short animated flick for the Stones Throw video contest, more specifically for the late great, J Dilla.  Smith’s video for the classic Donuts cut “Geekdown”  has been getting an insane amount of rotation since last weeks release, so if you haven’t checked it out yet do yourself a favor.
