juan otto 4x5 lg 600x411 Put It in Ink

Tattoos have appealed to me ever since I was kid gazing at the artwork running over Tony Danza’s arms on “Who’s the Boss”. In the time since then Mr.Danza has had his ink lasered off and an untold number of sorority girls and soccer moms have gone under the needle. Tattoos don’t carry the same outsider’s brand they once did. You can literally go to the mall and get one. [ Continue Reading ]

Ginou Choueiri doesn’t take potatoes lightly. She has chosen this particular root vegetable as her canvas because like the human face, she claims, no spud is perfect, and no two taters are alike. [ Continue Reading ]

You know when you go to a gallery, and you see a large, beautiful, eye-catching piece of work with an even more large, beautiful, and eye-catching price tag, and you look back and forth, spellbound between the two, and you think, that’s beautiful, but I could do that no problem? Welcome to the world of Sarah Splitler.

I don’t know who Fight Like Apes are and I don’t really care. I listened to the above song once and needless to say, that won’t happen again. Who wrote the lyrics? “It smells like socks and tastes like apple schnapps”? God, that’s annoying. And I don’t know what inspired their name, but when apes fight, they’re fuckin’ gangsta. They bite each other’s faces off and claw and mangle. I can guarantee that these people aren’t badass enough to even fight like snails. Anyway, enough with my bitter self. This post is really about Eoghan Kidney who is the artist behind the above video.

For various reasons, cultures, landscapes, and species on our planet are quickly disappearing. This is no secret. “Preservation,” “conservation,” “endangered,” and “extinct” are words in our daily vocabularies. Many of us dream of learning about or experiencing the world’s endangered phenomenon before their secrets are lost forever, preserving now what still exists before all hope is gone.

My first thought when I got a look at Conway’s work was, “oh, god. Here is clearly a man who loved video games, Manga, and/or Dungeons and Dragons as a teenager, and never really got over it. Now he’s an artist, what is the world coming to?”

Upon closer examination, I still partially hold to my initial reaction. That said, Daniel Conway (aka Arcipello) does have some pieces that make interesting and unique statements. Much of his work is quite detailed and emotionally-driven. And while some of his work remains in the cliché world of a man who never truly got over his teenaged obsessions, a small portion of it is still worth a review.

linkclick 380x400 Tropical Fantasy It’s hard to put your finger on the work of Pedro Paricio. Born and raised in the Canary Islands you can clearly see in the influence in his paintings through the use of bright and bold colors and also through the subject material- each painting regardless of how abstract the setting, seems to bring the observer to a tropical island. But his work has much more to it. There seems to be a slight [ Continue Reading ]

ah xian 04 446x400 China DollsCheck out these porcelain bust sculptures by Chinese artist Ah Xian. In this “east meets west” fashion, Xian uses old Western models of Roman sculpture combined with old Chinese design and art tradition. The result is stunning, in particular the attention to detail Xian pays when he paints. He also uses perspective rather uniquely- I love the sculpture with the small figures climbing all over what appears to be a giant head and shoulders. [ Continue Reading ]
