Not much info on brazilian artist Helena Tokutake’s site but there is a nice assortment of drawings depicting sweaters, crosses, and quirky landscapes.
LA-based photographer Jeff Burton shoots mostly gay porn. Okay, that’s a bit of a misnomer. He shoots photographs on the sets of gay porn films, though the resulting work is far from pornography. Burton seems more concerned with displaying the nude human body in a traditionally artistic, non-erotic way, rather than using it to titillate. The intersection between art and porn is an interesting space.
Amii Stewart, disco legend, and starring in possibly one of the most decadent music videos I’ve seen. I’m not sure what the pinnacle of video technology dictated in the late-late 70s but digital media artists like John Whitney were already starting to make fairly advanced films out of just graphics programming as early as the ’60s. “Knock on Wood” lyrics are after the jump if you were so inclined to watch the video and sing along…
Network Osaka is a graphic designer. That’s pretty much all I know about him or her. I don’t think they’re from Japan. They’re either from California or Mexico. Past that, Network Osaka has done some really nice print work, often employing a straightforward modernist aesthetic without seeming too derivative of the old masters.
Linzi Silverman has a wide variety of photographs on her blog but my favorite would be the documentation of these entrances, windows, and exits that she photographs. More after the jump!
When I first saw Jennifer Sullivan’s work I didn’t like it. But after looking at it for a few days it’s slowly growing on me. At first glance the paintings may seem naive and referencing the late 90′s craze of “bad painting” but I think there are some interesting things going on in the work that deserve a closer look.
Make sure to visit her site and explore the installations that sometimes accompany the work as well as Jennifer’s hilarious “feelings/Ideas” section where she ponders everything from “art based outfits” to “Artists That I Think Are Really Cool”.
