Luca Mainini is an italian visual artist and writer who is not afraid to share his thoughts. Whether it is a bloody love for Zac Efron or lipstick crashing into the World Trade Centers, Luca is willing to push it, and I love it. This guy likes to get wild. I mainly enjoy his paparazzi project were he is shown as a “drunk and fat” mess. Plus his collage work is fun too.
Ward Roberts was born in Australia and currently lives in Hong Kong and Australia. His work of quiet images depicting various lonesome landscapes are impressive. His contemporary eye has caught active locations and made them obsolete. Pretty neat.
Beautiful/Decay just released seven new designs just in time for Fall! Artists Colin Strandberg, The SickSystems, Ben Tegel, Jessica Hische and Official Classic created some stand-out graphics you have to see to believe!
Cristopher Cichocki creates odd interventions with the environment around him, often times using the simple gesture of coating items, taxidermy, dead animals with enamel and then photographing the works. Cichocki works out of the Salton Sea, whose unique environmental qualities and geographic location serves as his muse- he often recontextualizes the bizarre dead wildlife and abandoned, encrusted structures around him into surreal new viastas. Reminiscent of Robert Smithson’s earth works, but for a nuclear, toxic waste, environmental hazard-acclimatized generation.
Calvin Ho is an Australian artist currently living in Hong Kong. Since 1997, Ho has worked on a wide range of projects that cover design, art direction, illustration & motion for the music, fashion, art, film & entertainment industries.
Here is a description fresh off the press release!
The visuals follow an artist who enters his personal sanctuary where he is presented with a hand-crafted drawing tool that assists him in materializing his mental impressions. Through drawing circular patterns, the machine discharges an endless web of yarn that guides him through his visual representations of his memories. The story progresses to reveal that he is divided between two worlds, one of dull reality and the second of warped memories. In the process of finding a way out of his consciousness, he is trapped between the two competing spaces, which eventually inflict lethal damage, acting as metaphors to self-destruction.
