Bjorn Copeland

Bjorn Copeland mashes up neon colors, geometric patterns, and disparate collaged elements into one big distorted reality. This Brooklyn based artist also makes up one third of the experimental rock group Black Dice, and creates all the bands posters, artwork and t-shirts. Sound a little bit like to me like a similar path that this other guy Raymond Pettibon took all the way to the top. Keep up the good work Bjorn!

Scott Campbell

Scott Campbell

Scott Campbell is quickly becoming a popular name in the downtown NYC art scene. Already a world-renowned tattoo artist, Campbell also dabbles in the world of fine arts, making a variety of works including his signature stacks of laser-cut currency. His recent show “If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long” at OH WOW gallery in NYC had its detractors, but that didn’t stop it from being a huge success. Following in the footsteps of Mike Giant, Dr. Lakra, and Sailor Jerry, Campbell might just be on his way towards a bright and productive career.

Based in Brooklyn, Phillip Fivel Nessen is the major creative force behind Sparrow V. Swallow design studio, as well as a prominent contributer to our very own B/D Flickr pool! An homage to construction paper, Nessen’s clean line work and often muted color palette suggest a simpler time: a time when men were men. Carmelized onions? No thank you, I’ll be having rattlesnake on my hotdog.

Andrea Berretta’s design work is just so happy. Even the weird serpent/monster creatures look like something I would want to play charades with. His energetic, hand-drawn type gives his work an inviting atmosphere. Like, after seeing this, I’m totally ready for happy hour.

To Live and Die in LA…B/D Witnesses Fugitive vs. Police Standoff!

BrianAlexik

What you’re lookin at is our Arts District neighborhood, home to B/D offices…..barricaded due to police activity. Apparently, our block doesn’t just house contemporary art magazine-makers and cigarette-smoking hipsters, but Jason Bourne-style, America’s Most Wanted fugitives!

What?!

To recap, we here at the offices had an extremely bizarre day. The loud snores of Ziggy, our office mascot, were replaced with the even more thunderous and more obnoxious drone of helicopters, circling the sky in pursuit of well-known fugitive Brian Alexik!  After a day-long standoff between Alexic and an entire swat team of police authorities, the suspect was finally arrested this afternoon. His crimes run a laundry list of wrong-doing, from the relatively minor offenses of drug-dealing, illegal weapon possession and counterfeiting money, to the grave offense of being photographed with U2′s Bono!

Let’s just say popping off to pick up a refreshing iced latte down the street was out of the question….the entire neighborhood was blocked off, leaving us here at Beautiful/Decay gawking out of our office windows at the armored cars and bike police, held hostage in our own office for most of the day! Read what the Huffington Post has to say about the matter here.
