Radames “Juni” Figueroa

Today I was perusing the website of Proyectos Ultravioleta, a Guatemala based gallery, and found the work by Radames “Juni” Figueroa. Besides a sweet painting of a mustachiod Dracula rocking a cape and a Misfits shirt (dream babe, hello!) I found the above readymade installation. Lo and behold, I discovered a Beautiful/Decay apparel shirt we did with Rob Thom shirt we did from four years ago! Sweet! While we’ve since sold out of that shirt, Radames, if you’re listening, we did a re-make of the Bad Brains classic cover art work (now re-christened Decayed Brains) which is for sale on our online shop. If you care to make another installation work out of our T-shirts. Really great work….check out more after the jump!

A Day In Decay: Studio Visit With Kelly Barrie

kelly Barrie Photographer

The other day I swung by the studio of photographer Kelly Barrie. Kelly’s artistic process is one of the more bizarre and unique methods I’ve seen in quite a while. It involves multiple photos, a darkroom squeegee,¬†photo luminescent pigment, and Kelly’s feet. Intrigued? Click on the handy “Read More” button to find out how Kelly creates photo magic with a lil help from his feet.

Sam Lubicz

Western Theory

I am breaking all the rules for Sam Lubicz. By that I mean featuring both his collage work and photography IN THE SAME POST. Why? Because they’re both good and because I believe a dialogue exists between the two. Despite being two different modes of expression, Lubicz’s collage work and photographs share a certain playful moodiness that emphasizes the relationship between the two mediums. Like maybe one’s a pug and one’s a schnauzer but they’re both dogs. I love dogs.

Ryan Kenny’s photos seem to be about quiet moments of youthful exploration. Like those days when the city just boils over and you head up to Ojai to catch your breath for an afternoon. You and your favorite people are driving through those oak trees and no one’s really talking but that’s how it needs to be. These images are like that–catching your breath.

Picture 4

Broken bones, badass dogs, big on loitering… ¬†Brendan Klein’s name even sounds thrasher. My skateboarding days may have ended the first time I couldn’t make a turn, but with these photos I feel like I’m getting a proper look into a world I never became a part of. But maybe that’s a good thing….. or I might have ended up like the lovely lady after the cut. My face is the wrong shape for Mardi Gras masks.

Mezzetty’s images draw on everything that was good about the seventies, like Patti Smith and Polaroids, and injects it into each and every one of their dreamy photographs. Those stoic babes and fuzzy lenses are like squinting into the sun on the last day of summer, often bittersweet, but always beautiful.

Zipora Fried

Meticulous attention to detail helps Zipora Fried transform ordinary objects into compelling works of art. I recently saw several sculptural pieces by Fried at the Greater New York 2010 exhibition at P.S.1 and thoroughly enjoyed her use of playfully poignant and enigmatic materials, along with her sustained focus on repetition. Arduous process? Yes. Emphatically handmade? Yes. Beautiful in it’s simplicity, yet endlessly complex? Yes, indeed.

Based in Maryland, Adam Ferriss works as both a photographer and web designer. I like to think his series, Illusion, is titled for the optical trickery that gives these images a real sense of depth. Like looking through a kaleidoscope, it seems each image contains it’s own infinite universe primed for exploration.
