Palatine- Trippy skulls

I don’t know why but after watching this video by Datdatdat I feel weird inside. There’s something about skulls getting wrapped in fabric that creeps me out.

Speaking of skulls check out our diamond skull shirt and our Skull pendant collaboration with Steven Shein. Somehow it’s all connected… creepy!

My Lover the Server

AnitaFontaine1

For anyone who has received one of Facebook’s virtual gifts from a lover, or a sultry, romantically-inclined message from a high school crush via Myspace, check out the upcoming exhibition “My Lover The Server” at the Concrete Store, Amsterdam. Digital artists Champagne Valentine, above, have created a series of looping animated wallpapers that explore the notion of internet romance, drawing on real digital communications with web stalkers, strangers and actual lovers, inviting the public to remotely interact with the artwork. The exhibition, as Carrie from Sex and The City might type onto her 90′s Mac, can’t help but wonder…..Are .gifs the new bouquet of Roses?

“My Lover the Server” opens October 16th next week, and runs until October 31st.

Greg Eason

 

Greg Eason of Norfolk, UK, has a hand for drawing very realistic pencil illustrations, to fantastic patterns and sketches that stretch and bend across his sketchbook page. There’s something very comforting in his illustrations, their lifelike feeling, and the vacant page that inhabits the characters of his pieces.

My current work explores the era Anthropocene, working primarily in pencil, and the focus of my current work is driven by the desire to push the physical limitations of scale. I am also interested in the unpredictable nature of pattern; my interest lies in the production of organic linear structures and the suggestion of fluidity through repeated marks.

Beryl Fine‘s newest exploration into the extraordinary ordinary is her series entitled “Baby Mama.” As the image above alludes, Amy-Ann is “very pregnate and very beautiful.” Fine’s series evokes an odd sensation, not sure if we should laugh, turn away, or see the beauty of a proudly pregnant woman. “Ordinary Beauty” indeed.

Fallah will be exhibiting new work, alongside artists Clark Goolsby, Jessalyn Haggenjos, Stella Lai, Jason Redwood, Mark Schoening and Mike Swaney, in POV Evolving‘s “Pop of Colors” show.

If you are not familiar with each of these artists, I’ve included an example of their work after the jump.  If you are in town this Friday, October 9th, from 6-10, be sure check out this  not-to-be-missed round up of LA’s best & brightest young artists! (And I really just ain’t sayin’ this ’cause Amir’s my boss- check out the works after the jump if you don’t believe me!)

Andreco

 

Andreco, negli Italia (that’s Italian for “from Italy”… I hope) recently had a project where he showed videos created from paper-cuts as a live performance “shown in a very old palace in Bologna citycenter, (‘RE ENZO Palace’, the old King Enzo building.),” according to the artist. I love the simplicity and stiffness of the stop motion, and the morbid beauty of the figures.

Rory Kurtz

 

Rory Kurtz, based out of Chicago, is a modern illustrator in the fact that he uses “digital paint.” Self-taught, his works are a taste of fashion and celebrity, as well as odd little black and white illustrations that remind of the works of Edward Gorey, one of my favorite pen and ink illustrators. Kurtz’ use of mixed media makes for a whole new genre of illustration.
