DTAGNO & the Circleculture Gallery

Image_4

Like graffiti? Me too! And you’ll find some of the best graffiti art within the city of Berlin. Perhaps its for this very reason the Circleculture Gallery is focused on promoting urban art & artists such as Daniel Tagno. This Berlin-based grafitti artist has been playing with the configuration of his paintcans into a tool he calls the gadget to manipulate their patterns; like writing with multiple pens in parallel, and the results are beautiful! Daniel also takes his art beyond the paintcan in his series titled FÜR SEMPRE and beyond the walls with his PAINTINGS.

Mira Thomsen

Heliumkristall

Mira Thomsen’s collages look quite natural from afar, nothing too crazy about crystalline structures and topiaries, right? WRONG. I like that the oddness of her images doesn’t jump off the page and try to strangle you, it just sort of sits back in its chaise, takes a sip of its mint julep, and says “That’s right, I’m looking at you.” It’s the subtlety that makes it all the more intriguing.

Marcello Velho AKA Gaspar Lepage

9bd4a792316e9eed555c6293e51b3768

Marcello Velho’s work kind of reminds me of old school Nickelodeon cartoons. Think Rocko’s Modern Life or Ren & Stimpy. Except freakier. Like what was going through this guy’s head when he decided his characters should look like they’re made out of fuzzy ground beef? Genius. Also: after the cut is the picture that every mother shows her daughter to get them to practice abstinence.

Alex Robbins

FEAT Opener MAY1.indd

Staples: usually a necessary evil based on time constraints or lack of paper clips. Who knew they could look this good? An illustrator and type designer, Alex Robbins was obviously listening when we were urged him not to ignore the negative space. His ability to transform mundane materials– be it finishing nails or fingerprints– into delicate, blooming bits of information always leaves me wanting more.

A Day In Decay: Studio Visit With Kelly Barrie

kelly Barrie Photographer

The other day I swung by the studio of photographer Kelly Barrie. Kelly’s artistic process is one of the more bizarre and unique methods I’ve seen in quite a while. It involves multiple photos, a darkroom squeegee, photo luminescent pigment, and Kelly’s feet. Intrigued? Click on the handy “Read More” button to find out how Kelly creates photo magic with a lil help from his feet.

Rena Littleson-Montenegro

Picture 3

The best Intervention episodes are always the really odd ones. Meth addictions are a dime a dozen, but M&M addictions are something to talk about! Artist Rena Littleson-Montenegro appears to be drawing the usual photorealistic, tortured souls, but by pairing her subjects with bottles of ginger ale and blood thirsty toy dinos she gives the concept a refreshing and playful spin. And the extreme foreshortening really lends these binges that the-first-step-is-admitting-you-have-a-problem sense of urgency.
