Rosemarie Fiore’s fireworks drawings are literally explosive both in their visuals as well as their technique. Combining collage, paint and live explosives, Fiore creates images that are full of energy, saturated color and unorthodox compositions. Make sure to catch her opening at Priska C. Juschka Fine Art in NYC May 19th- July 2nd.
Sean Norvet has work in many mediums on his site but my favorites are these ultra detailed and slightly grotesque portraits.
I know, I know, this is a bit cheesy. But try to look past the terrible music, the Yanni style haircut, and even the cheesy artwork. What I’m into is the technique. I challenge you, loyal Cult Of Decay members to use this painting technique to make something amazing. Watch the full video after the jump, turn off the computer and get going!
The Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles has not one, but two very appealing magic-related exhibitions opening April 28. The first, Houdini: Art and Magic, travels to us from New York. Featuring tons of Houdini-ana, the exhibition looks not only at the historical Houdini, but also at his enduring legacy. To that end, the exhibition includes a number of artworks by contemporary artists inspired by the Houdini legend, including such luminaries as Matthew Barney, Petah Coyne, Vik Muniz and Raymond Pettibon. The Skirball has created a second exhibition to give context to Houdini. This is called Masters of Illusion: Jewish Magicians of the Golden Age, and it focuses on Houdini’s predecessors, colleagues and competitors in both Europe and the US, focusing on the years 1875 to 1948. The exhibition examines more than 40 fascinating careers, largely forgotten, and contains many outstanding objects, all displayed in “period” environments meant to evoke vaudeville stages, Victorian magic parlors and the like. Both exhibitions feature vintage photography, gorgeous promotional ephemera, original props and costumes, and rare documents, and Masters of Illusion includes four renowned automata.
Dyna Moe brings us a grouping of hilarious illustrations about one of the worlds most overused word, Hipsters! It’s frightening how dead on all these drawings are. I know a real life version of every single illustration and I have to admit that all the cliche’s are sadly true. Take a peak at the full range of Animal hipsters after the jump and see if you can find your match!
