Joseph Hart

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.

The Lost Coin from Dan Britt on Vimeo.

Cartoons that look like they are for children but are really for adults are the best.  The colors and animation in this dryly funny fable are so natural, maybe its because the animators are from the UK and have old world taste.

Mike Kershnar

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.”

Austrailian Sam Songailo makes crazy technical paintings that have my brain in a serious frenzy. Florescent patterns ooze off the canvas like a Gee’s Bend quilt on mushrooms. Check out Iain Dawson Gallery for more.

In 2007, Kurt Franz traveled on a bus across America and Western Europe studying city peripheries where construction and entropic sites become a common occurrence. Along the way he picked up enough materials to make some intriguing work.

Save the Polaroid with “Instant Gratification”

ISM_polaroid

Ahh, the polaroid- the quick flash, shake, peel and voila of the beloved instantaneous image-maker is the timeless trope of countless cheesy grins. In our simulacra-riddled copy of a meta-copy digital age, there is something sincere in an entirely unique and irreplacable analog copy of a photo. Sure, I have thousands of digital files amassed on my computer. But the photos that I cherish are mostly those small, square little guys called polaroids, or to use their proper name, Instant Land Photography. With polaroid’s impending death nearing, thankfully someone has taken a stand. ISM Community will be opening an entirely polaroid exhibition entitled “Instant Gratification” at Copro Gallery this Saturday, from 7 to 11pm. With hundreds of ceiling to floor polaroids, the exhibition creates awareness about this waning art form. Flyer and more polaroids after the jump!
