Thad Kellstadt’s Tit Mullet

Thad Kellstadt‘s acrylic paintings possess a sort of hipster-esque aesthetic.  I find his Tit Mullet (as seen above) in particular to be very amusing. Girl is stylin’!

Goodbye, fearless intern Greg Ruben!

dscn1862

The seasons change, the brittle Autumn leaves fall to the fore, summer’s last days ebb a California surfer’s wave…what I’m trying to say is that yet another fearless intern, Greg Ruben, will be moving on from B/D. We here at B/D decided you readers might  be interested to know who some of the folks are here who work tirelessly and relentlessly for stale bread, water and “experience” (aka interns)- and so we are spotlighting Greg, whose last day is today! Greg is a design student at UCLA and has contributed to some great graphics over the course of his stay here, as well as many rapier-sharp witted blog posts that I am sure you have come to know and love. His personal work is pretty cool too. So thank you for the music, Greg, and forgive me for tricking you into thinking the above photo was in some way related to a post about shipping out our latest season of B/D Apparel. (Hey, at least I told you to smile!)

Andreas Frank’s Manipulated Photos Exhibited Underwater In A Sunken Ship

A little while ago, Andreas Frank took a dive down to the Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, a  United States missile tracking ship that was recently sunk 7 miles off the coast of Key West, Florida in order to create an artificial reef. While he was down there, Frank, who is a successful commercial photographer, took pictures of the wreck. He used the resulting images as the basis for a series of digitally manipulated photos depicting various underwater happenings on the sunken ship. The cool part: he then staged an exhibition of the photos on the deck of the ship! Divers took in the exhibit in full scuba gear. I’m not sure that bobbing up and down under water is the best way to take in Frank’s work, but it is kinda cool. See more photos from the Vandenberg- Life Below the Surface show after the jump, as well as a video of divers checking out the pictures while down by the ship.

Chrissie Abbott

Chrissie Abbott’s work reminds me of something you’d see while rummaging through psychedelic album covers at a record store.  I dig it! I love the mixture of black and white photography and colorful elements. She has done work for Little Boots, Nylon, and New York magazine.

Real Fish Heads Used In Photographs To Satirize Everyday Human Life



Anne-Catherine Becker-Echivard places real fish from her fish monger on doll parts to recreate, amuse, and in a way, criticize/satirize aspects of human society.

Of her work, Dr. Didier Rouzeyrol poeticizes:

The fish of acbe do not look at the ground.
They play there. They play. They play with us.
They place us into these pieces.
Parts in an act, in a photograph.

European bred and born, Becker-Echivard could easily be a character in a Julie Delpy film– charmingly dedicated to absurd yet accessible content with an undeniably curious or obsessive edge. For instance, after the setting and shooting is done, this Parisian artist tops off each project by eating it for dinner, stating, “It is the perfect recycling of art. Nothing is left over – and I can live from it.”
