Attention UK Artists & Designers- Fresh Blood Hunt Art Competition

Calling all UK based designers, illustrators, and creative minds: Beautiful/Decay has teamed up with 20th Century Fox to bring you the bloodiest, goriest, most epic art competition, Fresh Blood Hunt. Fresh Blood Hunt is a rare opportunity for UK-based creatives- lend your skills to design an art piece inspired by the upcoming Tim Burton film Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter!

The contest winner will have their artwork turned into a mural, painted by the talented Jim Rockwell AND win a BRAND NEW 17″ MACBOOK PRO and ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE 6! That’s one  “suite” prize! The chosen artist can join Jim Rockwell in London while he’s painting the mural and the whole event will be captured in a time-lapse video.

So get to it, Cult members across the pond, enter the Fresh Blood Hunt Art Competition and show the world that Britain’s got horror movie illustration skills!

Studio Visit: Melissa Brown

mb3

Ventured over to Brooklyn to see what visual awesomeness Melissa Brown was up to in her studio.  Melissa had the studio organized for making large-scale prints.  She’s known for working with a variety of media including: used scratch tickets, oil paint, lino-cuts, wood-cuts, drawing, mail art, video, and performance.  The color in Brown’s prints and paintings is what initially drew me to her work, but I admire her work for its openness and psychological generosity.  Talking with Melissa was really fun.  I actually got a little dadarhea of the mouth and started talking about philosophy, which in retrospect is embarrassing.  Melissa is in a bunch of cool shows, one at Canada called Dadarhea which runs until March 20th, and two upcoming shows: Paper A-Z at Sue Scott, and the upcoming show at Zieher Smith in Chelsea.

Ruben Brulat’s Empty Spaces

Ruben Brulat is from Paris and his entire series features a lone naked man in the wilderness and in office spaces at night. Think of him as a modern Bigfoot.

Kit Webster – Digital Sculpture

Kit Webster challenges the conventional use of space in a gallery with his installation, Enigmatica.  Using light to create an illusion of mass, Kit breaks up the room and reconfigures the environment with this digital sculpture.  I’d definitely like to see this in person.

Preview: Eric Yahnker Solo Show at The Hole

 

Eric Yahnker‘s first NYC solo show, Virgin Birth ‘N’ Turf, is being held at The Hole, the two-year-old Bowery space that picked up some of the pieces left when Jeffrey Deitch changed coasts. The show, which opens tomorrow night, is looking like quite the banger. Some HUGE (10 ft.) drawings will be on display in addition to sculptural and installation works. See more from Virgin Birth ‘N’ Turf after the jump, and if you’re looking to get even more hyped on the Los Angeles artist, watch our video interview with him from last year.

Gary Hovey’s Incredible Animal Sculptures Made Out Of Stainless Steel Utensils

Artist Gary Hovey constructs shiny animal sculptures by welding stainless steel utensils. Hovey uses the initial shape of the particular piece of cutlery – the curves of spoons, the spikeyness of forks, or the flatness of knives – to inform the overall form of the animal he is crafting. Each piece is unique – no molds are used to help shape his work. The most astounding part of Hovey’s work is that the artist has struggled with the effects of Parkinson’s disease since he was diagnosed in 1994. Since 2004, he has been welding flatware, and he finds producing and showing this work to be therapeutic. “I work when I’m able to move. Family and friends carry sculptures for me. But I still get to make them,” says Hovey. “I don’t think the quality has suffered, but it does take longer to make them. It helps financially support my family and it is therapy for me. It has allowed me to meet many wonderful people.” (via my modern met)
