Taravat Talepasand’s work is anything but subtle. As a dual citizen between Iran and the US, Talepasand work deals with both contemporary and traditional issues of both nations. Talepasand work puts symbolic and iconic images in new contexts, forcing you to view them in a new ways. “I had my own way of depicting things,” she explains. “I wanted to work on my own terms.” Beautiful and thought provoking. If you like what you see, Talepasand’s work will be featured in Beautiful/Decay’s upcoming issue! Subscribe today to view more works by her, as well as other great artists!
Above is an international street artist who is widely known for his social and political stencils, wooden “arrow mobile” installations, and witty word play paintings. His work has been seen all over Europe and the US.
23 year old artist Matthew Palladino has been getting a good amount of press, from his show at Park Life to his interview on Fecal Face, and it’s really no surprise because his pieces are conceptually unique and universally beautiful. I’m intrigued by the subjects of his paintings and sometimes titles of his work, for instance, the painting above is titled “Lesbian Jail Wedding”.
