Christian Montenegro some beautiful illustrations on his site that fuse idiosyncratic line work, unexpected compositions & figurative elements and bright, saturated color palettes. I am totally in love with his silkscreen above, “Glam Rock!” that seems to fuse the act of head-banging with a swirling color wheel calling to mind Kenneth Noland’s color paintings.

Sandro Giordoano’s Twistedly-Funny Photographs Of People Falling Flat On Their Face

Sandro GiordoanoSandro GiordoanoSandroGiordano1 SandroGiordano3

With television game shows like Wipeout and American Ninja Warrior (and every slapstick movie, too), it’s no surprise that some of us derive pleasure from seeing people get hit. Photographer Sandro Giordoano’s twisted (both literally and figuratively) series In Extremis (bodies with no regret) capitalizes on the fall of others The staged images feature people comically posed in awkward and unflattering positions.

Always face down, the poor subjects are often garishly dressed and surrounded by their belongings. This is Giordano’s commentary on our attachments to our possessions; in every photograph, you’ll see the person clutching something like a watering can, oversized tennis ball, and even a power tool. To him, the characters in his compositions are oppressed by their appearance and the need to have things – and save them, even at their own expense. Their fall signifies that they hit rock bottom, and that they need to reexamine their life. (Via Laughing Squid)

Benjamin Oliver – In Search of Our Senses

Benjamin Oliver, a recent graduate of the Royal College of Art’s Design Interactions program explores the space between our everyday experiences, inventing prototypes that can give participants a way to experience all new senses. I love the approach Benjamin took in framing his experiments – By creating photographs with such rich narrative, the artist leaves behind a series of bizzarre rooms in which these sensory objects supposedly underwent a round of testing.

B/D Apparel at Agenda Tradeshow January 22nd-24th

Twice a year the entire streetwear/action sports community converges in San Diego for the ASR trade show. Each year ASR becomes more water downed than the next attracting cheesy corporate lines created to make a quick buck and outdated swim suit lines.

Fortunately the Agenda trade show has been making headway in San Diego over the last 5 years, growing its impressive line up of brands with each show. Championing the independent, DIY spirit of the brands which the action sport/streetwear community was built on, a diverse group of brands such as Incase, The Hundreds, Imaginary Foundation, 10 Deep and of course Beautiful/Decay will be exhibiting.

Agenda will once again take place at the San Diego Concourse from January 22nd-24th.
Stop by our booth and get a preview of our Spring and Summer 09 line.

Now once again residing in Indonesia, this fine art photographer’s careful captures reflect the essence of his homeland. His black-and-white images perfectly showcase the natural beauty of the landscape, from its cloud-rimmed cinder cones to its wave-roiled seas.
