Linn Olofsdotter

hotelwonder-by-linn-olofsdotter-459x542

Strange, surreal illustrations by Swedish artist, Linn Olofsdotter.  They’re sweet and scary – simultaneously mechanical and pliable like they’re sculpted out of soft clay over kinked wires.

She was educated in Europe and the US in advertising and design, lived in Brazil and currently calls Portland home  – such of mix of cultures!

Alexey Titarenko

Alexey Titarenko city mass

Alexey Titarenko sees dead people.  When he has a camera in his hand, he conjures spirits from other dimensions.  I love his ghostly imagery.  He started summoning apparitions via photographs in the early 70′s.  In 1978, he became a member of Leningrad photographic club, Zerkalo.  Since Alexey’s work did not conform to the Communist agenda, he was not able to publicly declare himself an artist until 1989.  Now his photographs are featured in museums around the world.  Alexey is currently represented exclusively by Nailya Alexander Gallery in NY.

Only 5 Copies Left of Book 1!

BeautifulDecayBook2
Across the great lands, in all of eternity, against time, space, and even in the third dimension, there are only FIVE, I repeat FIVE copies of Book 1 left in existence. Or at least, left on the online shop. If you missed out on Book 1: Supernaturalism, with its custom sticker inserts, 164 pages of glossy art, and hand-drawn, collectable cover by Kyle Thomas, I suggest you run (or arrive, in a cloak of smoke and lightening) to the B/D Online Shop to get your copy. And, if you never want to miss another issue (and support independent art at the same time) subscribe!

Okay Master Debators – we have a hot debate for you to weigh in on.  We received a submission from John Malta.  We think his work is really cool… but we can’t help but notice a similarity to Matt Leines.  This illustration style seems to be popular nowadays.  Is it just the current style or is John influenced by Leines?  You can see some comparisons after the jump.  We have no intention to bash John’s work, but we are interested to hear your opinions on the matter.  What do you think?

The Heavens Smile Upon B/D

DSCN1891

Well bless Saturn’s moon, if ain’t Mr. Roy G. Biv stoppin by to bend his multi-colored grin right on over the offices of Beautiful/Decay! And not one, but two heavenly bows of Indra gracing our window! We happened to notice this full bow, DOUBLE rainbow straight from our office window this eve, I swear! Ah, and then, it was gone….as Virginia Woolf once said, it was all just as ephemeral as a rainbow.

Soggy Sorry Day

Guth_Umbrella1_e1

In honor of this sorry, low down, good for-nothin yellow bellied son of a sapsucker rainy day, enjoy some found clothing umbrellas by MK Guth. Thinking about taking these out for hellstorm protection just makes me think of the smell of mold, dog, and heavy wet socks. Still, I like their bright, cheery plays on the umbrella form, that are half Mary Poppins, half fortress.
