Personally, I never understood how dudes could sit in perfect rapture in their basements, eating cereal and wearing vans, watching other dudes ride around on wooden planks with wheels for hours on end. (OK, I secretly wanted to be one of those dudes.) Anyways, thank you, Salazar for creating a dusty, semi-mystical video with colored smoke and potions that at least, for an instant, made me feel what it’s like to be one of those dudes.
Epic hesher Skinner will be exhibiting all new works at Grass Hut this Jan 8, 6-9pm. For the show “My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama,” he’s designed a legion of spectral-axe-ular demons straight from the Necronomicon of Rock! And don’t think this is damp in the annals of a strictly-dude dungeon, there are babin’ guitar-esse heroes like Lita Ford of the Runaways and Anne Wilson of Heart. May the most righteouss riff win!
Jenna Gribbon’s paintings parse and reorganize images “not (into) natural spaces, or dream space, but waking brain space.” Psychologically loaded, I find it hard to figure out what is going on, but I can’t look away either. Jenna worked as an assistant to Jeff Koons, maybe laboring on some of his billboard sized photorealist paintings is where she got some of her chops.
Hey everyone. Ryan Travis Christian here. Amir asked if would share my ongoing “artist of the day” facebook thing with you all. I was like “yeah, let’s do it”. OK….
This is the work of Joseph Hart. Not only is this handsome young New Yorker a master of medium and composition, but a force of nature and a gnarly dancer too. Check out his most recent exhibition, STAGECRAFT @ David Krut Projects. Up till’ January 30th.
Just came across some really inspiring work by California’s own Mike Kershnar. Not only does this guy create some of the most original skateboard graphics around, he is also seriously committed to doing good in the community through the organization Elemental Awareness that he helped co-found. The non-profit’s mission is to “educate and inspire young people to develop self-esteem, social and environmental awareness and the tools to lead successful lives. Elemental Awareness is founded upon the belief that a person can positively impact their world through an active involvement in their passions.”
