Mi-Zo

mi-zo kintaro1Graphic Artist Minori Murakami and Photographer Zoren Gold are a powerful team, but you can call them Mi-Zo.  They have a wonderfully bizarre body of work.  Mi-Zo has worked for many important clients and editorials, while constantly maintaing their unique style and sensibility.

Robert Palacios

dale_la_manoThis past weekend I walked into Venice Beach’s Universal Art Gallery and found myself instantly captivated by the paintings of Robert Palacios, which are currently there on display. Robert is a Los Angeles native, and his work spans the mediums of paint, linocuts, paper mache and even avocado pits. His work is marked by vivid colors and everyday narratives, played out by some very unordinary, playful characters. Although not represented in the images here, Robert seems to take great care in selecting the frames for his paintings – thick, gold and gaudy – a choice I couldn’t  have imagined would work so well to complement and complete his paintings.

Nicholas Bohac

nicholas bohac wreckcenterNicholas Bohac mixes paint, ink and silkscreen prints to create multilayered landscapes.  The living texture of his work builds a world meant to raise questions about the current state of our environment.  Where does nature end and humanity begin?  How are we affecting nature, and how is nature affecting us?  Similar to a hike in the wilderness, you will find it is easy to get lost in these paintings.

Jimmy Joe Roche

Today, I got an email from Jimmy Joe Roche that read: “Every once in a while I feel like I can bend reality by focusing on a white dot of energy in the center of my chest or middle abdomen.” Looks like Mr. JJR got a new haircut, new magic powers, and a new video. Careful, kiddies, it has graphic language. (But hey, it’s art, right?) While his older works played with mysticism from a kitsch aesthetic (embroidered Peruvian ponchos paired with cheap vid effects, like stock image howling wolves), these new videos verge on dead-faced psycho internet 2012 stoner-conspiracy theory. I don’t know whether to laugh or run.

Debbie Tea

Debbie Tea_01 Indonesia based artist Debbie Tea was a multi-media student, but she now chooses to express herself primarily through her camera. Her photographs, many of which she presents in series, are observations of a peculiar sort. She pulls together that which tends to reamain separate, and displays her subjects by playing with their absence.

Avalanche Design Studio

avalanche_galerie_01 Paris’ Avalanche Design Studio is a collaboration between Alexandra Roucheray and Delfine Roux. These two definitely have a unique take on process, which seems to lead each piece down a path very distant and varied from the one previously worked. Perhaps it’s the hint of Dadaist influence I’m detecting?

10″ Poo Shoes Anyone?

Insashoes

Perhaps Lady Gaga will up the ante on her outlandishly “avante-garde” sartorial sense, and start rocking these ten inch bejeweled and beaded poo poo-shoes- and you thought stilettos were hard to walk in! Or not. As part of a recent exhibition, Tate Britain asked artists from around the world to respond to Chris Ofili’s controversial elephant dung on the The Holy Mary painting that caused a “Sensation” in NYC 15 years ago. UK-based INSA’s contribution? Poo shoes. Is this what the controversy has been reduced to today? Ohmigawd shoez? Looks like it.
