Four months of exhausting hard work in an abandoned area with no sun just artificial light. The final result, a stop motion movie with no digital effects where everything is handmade. everything is handmade. Over 5000 pictures were processed with an average of 15 per second to make this come alive! By Quintessenz Creation.
Due to popular demand we’ve decided to extend the 50% off sale for another week. You can still get lots of shirts, magazines, and accessories for half price. We’ll end the sale next week or once we run out of stock. Remember we’re clearing out all our old inventory so that we can move to our brand new online shop and website so the sooner we sell out of everything the faster the new site luanches!
Photographer Paul Kooiker has a creepy little voyeuristic collection of work that is not only unnerving, but quite beautiful all at the same time. In this way, his work really stands out to me, it is observation perfected – maybe even surpasses to intrusive. This terrifying, and talented photographer doesn’t need gore to freak you out. He just needs the eerie-calm and the psychological imprint he leaves behind that has you suspicious of just who is standing behind you. I am going to have some weird dreams tonight…
If you’re like my best friend Agnes, who is such a germaphobe that she brings with her cleaning equipment on any of our vacation trips, then this post will disturb your very soul. Presenting the Seattle Gum Wall! Falling in 2nd place (after Ireland’s Blarney Stone) as voted by Tripadvisor to be one of the world’s most germ infested tourist attractions. The Gum Wall came to be in the early 1990’s when people, waiting in line to purchase theater tickets, started to stick their chewing gum to the wall to pass the time. You may be wondering why hasn’t anyone tried to clean this up in the first place, well the theater attendants have – twice! They gave up in 1999 when the wall became an official Seattle tourist attraction. I (being a notorious gum addict) must visit this wall to contribute… with Agnes and her endless stock of Purell.
I am in love with Dimitri Tsykalov’s series of fruit and veggie skulls. So intricately carved into accurate representations! He seems to take an interest in unorthodox sculpture materials… as he used meat to create war weapons as a commentary on the exposed soldier inside a butchering.
Beacon, NY based sculpturist Emil Alzamora enjoys exploring the human form through his artwork. He focuses on ideas like what it actually means to inhabit the human body occur throughout his work in one shape or another.
Yi-Hsin Tzeng uses various mediums to construct and communicate her sense of black humor and outside viewpoint. Her recent series on defacing and appropriating public images (magazines, political figures, fashion, etc.) is an attempt at regaining some control over the surreal absurdity that comes with the fake, posed, and plastic nature of public images.
Leonard Greco has a way of portraying people in his portraits, defiantly capturing each person’s personality in a mindful way. He has already built quite a portfolio, working with the Arctic Monkeys and Yeasayer to name a few. He currently works in New York.
