LALA ALBERT

Lala Albert has consistently drawn the most beautiful multi-eyed freaks for years now. I’ve never seen theme and variation work this well before, and I don’t believe I will get tired of her work any time soon. Catch her sprawling comics at Vice , in Chameleon and Gang Bang Bong, and on Arthur Mag. She tumbles, flicks, textiles, and twits. Sassy. Oozy. Gals.

Manny G

Manny G - F.A.C.T.

Although we aren’t hiring here at Beautiful/Decay, we wanted to share Manny G‘s portfolio with you all. Navigating through media seamlessly, this recent CalArts graduate pretty much does it all. Whether it’s transforming a found book inside and out, illustrating Chewbacca with only one intense image-making technique, or revealing the cuter (?!) side of sex, Manny G delivers visual feasts.

Anton Vill’s Grotesque Pen Drawings Are Beautifully Exquisite

Anton-Vill-11 Anton-Vill-9 Anton-Vill-10 Anton-Vill-5

The ink drawings of Anton Vill are exquisite and small – about the size of your average fork. Vill is highly skilled in wielding a pen, and he makes tiny marks so fine that they appear as a pencil drawing or even as an engraving from the 17th century. But, looking closely at the subject matter, you discover that they are wholly contemporary, like something out of a nightmare.

We see babies piled in a shopping cart, a grotesque separation of someone’s head, and countless people that are wrapped up in the long hair of a Cousin It-type character. Vill’s work is quietly visceral and bizarre, and it doesn’t immediately strike you as strange; this creates a greater impact when you study his drawings. The longer that you look, the more you’ll discover and get a glimpse into the artist’s imagination. (Via Faith is Torment)

DANIEL ARSHAM Reconsiders Architecture

Daniel Arsham’s structural interventions cause walls to appear in a state of flux, as if they are melting or dripping, reverse the notion of architectural rigidity and of a partition’s standard presentation. His aestheticized sculpture and installations realize hypothetical architectural elements and counter intuitive designs, queuing possibilities and coercing material to behave atypically.

Robert Moya

Robert Moya, Mixed Media

Working with materials such as glue, pre-mixed craft paint and food coloring, Robert Moya‘s pieces are meticulously crafted using hand made materials and “dried and colored glue remnants taken from previously or simultaneously-made paintings“. Creating a cycle or as he calls it a “one process, one orientation and one modular shape” rigorous routine, these crafted “paintings” are an enjoyable mixture between a sculpture and an abstract painting. While some of them contain a variety of colors and “pieces”, he is still able to elegantly hold everything together within the frame of the panels.

Michael Bussell, a student at the Maryland Institute College of Art, is already creating some beautiful photography. His most recent series “Shrines” is a study of habitual human practices and how they relate to religious iconography. Maybe cleanliness really is next to Godliness.
