Sabi Van Hemert

21

Sabi Van Hemert is a Dutch artist who creates sculptures that are fusions of children and animals. Van Hemert likes to play on  the idea that the viewer has his or her interpretation on what they see. Because it is not immediately obvious what you see, the relationship between the spectator and the image is more complex, which is what Van Hemert strives to get from her work. Van Hemert says she has developed a rhythm to her work: precision, and the material she uses, help gives her work its alienating yet sensual, tough yet vulnerable character.

Black Light Posters

3

There are some things that are just too awesome to be forgotten…. in a sea of trends that the design world is often forced to weather. Take for instance, the 1960′s revolutionary trend of poster printing called The Black Light poster. You’ve got to love the free form type, the over-the-top color, the hand-drawn graphics. How could we ever say this art is dated? This was Plus, these posters have the dual ability to look great in daylight, and look even better under the glow of a black light in a dark room, (that may or may not smell like marijuana). Everybody loves stuff that glows in the dark, even if they’re not high – though I suppose they’d be even more mind blowing when viewed through the colorful lens of LSD.

Germany based artist Heiko Mueller’ art is like a fairy tale with a dark spin to it. He is fond of the country side, and is fascinated by the dark side of nature, the hidden machinations of the animal kingdom.

BIG BANG BIG BOOM

A ton of work must have gone into this awesome graffiti animation. BLU painstakingly shared his point of view about evolution by painting and shooting frame by frame on buildings, walls, and pipes in an urban setting. Whole apartments become sites of cosmological development, water pipes carry creatures from sea to land, and water towers launch nuclear WMDs.

Andy Ainger

Andy Ainger creates eerie paper creatures. Even with his fun color palate, some of his creations still give me the heebie jeebies. Aiger works with simple materials, saying his interests lie in “craft based art,” and plays with accessible household items like paper, breakfast cereal, and possibly sealing foam?

I had been hearing some buzz about Andres Guerrero’s new space so I thought I’d head over and check out Weight Perception, a group show curated by SF’s own Andrew Schoultz.

Yang Fudong for PRADA

As far as I know, this 9-minute black and white instance is the first in its kind: modern Chinese film-maker Yang Fudong has collaborated with the huge international fashion brand PRADA to produce a beautiful and dreamlike look book that evokes timeless-ness despite (or because of) it’s old Shanghai setting. First Spring is inspired by a Chinese proverb: “The whole year’s work depends on a good start in spring,” lending itself perfectly for the Mens Spring/Summer line. Yang Fudong works predominantly with 35mm black and white film, harking to black-and-white prewar films of the 1930s and 1940s and postwar avant-garde film noir.

Brad Woodfin

There is something eccentric, smug, cranky, entitled, curious, and charismatic about Brad Woodfin’s little goat-guy that I can’t help but compare to my little pug, Ziggy. He has a habit of jumping on the B/D ottoman to look out the window whenever something is “going on” downstairs, and this is pretty much what he looks like when he does it. Wonderful paintings of fauna by Brad Woodfin.
