Check out Amandine Alessandra’s clever use of objects to create typography. I have to admit that they could be at times hard to read… especially her project “Take a seat and say something” (you can see it after the jump) but it’s really refreshing to see the transformation of mundane things when you look at them in another perspective.
We continue our month long series of free outdoor screenings at Space 15 Twenty this Wednesday, May 13th, with “Basquiat.”
The screenings are projected on the large outdoor screen located next to the Snack Bar. Seating is limited so arrive early to secure a chair, but if you get there late, no worries you can always sit on the floor or bring your own chair! Last week we even had a couple of troopers stand and watch the film!
Basquiat examines the meteoric rise to art stardom of Basquiat, a young artist renowned for his loose and expressive style- and dating Madonna at the ripe old age of 24! If you’ve never seen this film, Basquiat is the classically Shakespearian figure of the romantic and mysterious tragic-fated artist. The film also continues to explore themes of trends and commodity.
Drinks, Snacks and Popcorn are available at Snack Bar!

The lovely and talented Erin from Design For Mankind has done it again with a brand new Mankind mag- the “Pretty Issue,” an interesting thematic idea for a zine! I love that the model on the cover also has super short, androgynous pixie cut- not your typical depiction of “pretty” and yet she is gorgeous! More of our favorite spreads below- go HERE to download the latest issue!
The drawings of Dean Sullivan (Flickr moniker A E I O U) could make seriously awesome wallpaper but only if you don’t mind being creeped out once in a while when you get too close to it. The densely meticulous lines create lush eco-systems for drippy hairy demons and caves…I wanna go! He also makes really awesome shirt/sweat shirt graphics and possesses this thing that make me think he’s actually a 5-year old with a more perverse imagination than usual picking up the markers and pencil for the first time and scribbling away. It’s great!
Really great work by French animator and illustrator Baptiste Alchourroun. The video uses choppy motion and what seems like a loooot of neon/brightly colored paper to create a really cool effect. The music is pretty catchy too and the character in it reminds me of the dude from MSTRKRFT because of his ‘stache (insert ‘stache n shades competition plug). Check out more of Baptiste’s illustration work after the jump & definitely check out his website because it’s all bitmap-y and cute.
Thanks to everyone that made it out to our screening of Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton documentary screening last night at Space 15twenty. The screening was a great success, with great summer time weather and comfy beach chairs to relax on. All the seats were filled within minutes and a few troopers even stood for the entire length of the movie!
