Chuck Brown

Drawn for a show titled MONSTERS at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, the artist Tim O’Brien decided to deviate from the show’s intent by painting “a realistic version of something usually thought of as cute and benign” for the event instead.

This is his illustration depicting Charlie Brown if he were real.

Sarah’s work is crazy playful and creative with how she uses different media and textiles. Click the image to check out her site. For some reason it reminds me of elementary school crafts. Must be the felt.

Pink Gundam

Someone has created this evil-lishly pink, deviant son-of-a-gundam, but not to say that the embellishments on the body weren’t strategically well-placed…..but seriously – WOOF.




In the name of all things wicked and awesome, NO

DEADLINE

Posted by Michael | Art, Video | Wednesday 17 June 2009 11:34 am

DEADLINE is a stop-motion film created by Bang-yao Liu for his senior project at Savannah College of Art and Design. He uses an insane amount of post-its (not as much as this though) to create this short clip. Just imagine all the tedious work and accuracy of putting each post-it in its place to create this pixelated-like film… o.0!

“Where my idea comes from is that every time when I am busy, I feel that I am not fighting with my works, I am fighting with those post-it notes and deadline. I manipulating the post-it notes to do pixel-like stop motion and there are some interactions between real actor and post-its.”

Banksy @ Bristol Museum

Posted by Ryan | Art | Tuesday 16 June 2009 12:07 am

For those of you who don’t know who Banksy is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banksy

Banksy pulls off his most audacious stunt yet… a secret exhibition in Bristol museum. What apparently happened is that he snuck into the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery and switched around over 100 different artifacts with his own work. Done all under the cover of secrecy.

Here are a couple pictures from the exhibit:

It’s all love – Frank Gehry for the Art Gallery of Ontario

Posted by Michael | Art, Design | Sunday 14 June 2009 10:28 am

From what we’ve seen at dundas and mccaul stretching out towards the west is a beautiful, grand structure comprised of wood, steel and glass that is the new face of the AGO. Inside the gallery is a whole other look on it’s own. We owe it to Frank Gehry for utilizing his talent and panache, recreating the AGO and leaving an imprint in this city that we can all truly appreciate and admire.

“It is fitting that the 70-year-old Frank Gehry ended up re-envisioning the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) for his native city of Toronto. As a boy, Gehry visited the AGO often, and the effect of those visits on him and his future career was important. Gehry has lived most of his life in the U.S., but the AGO remake allows Toronto to reap some of the benefits of his massive talent before it’s all too late.”

Wicked stuff, Mr. Gehry
