d 444x400 A hidden treasure

Andrew Archer, a 23-year-old  illustrator and designer from Auckland, New Zealand, puts classical training to shame. “I didn’t take art through my younger years, but I did eat crayons which quite possibly is where my off-beat colour palettes come from,” he says on his website. [ Continue Reading ]

maxim 298x400 In which AdamK ventures out of his cave and goes to Llama Inks exhibitionThis past Saturday night, I found myself at beloved Montreal bar Le Social taking in the rarest of cultural events: hip-hop concert/art sale. The party was organized by llama Ink, a collective of local artists whose stated mission is to put art back in the hands of youth, who for years have been pushed out of being able to buy and collect original artwork due to its prohibitive cost. When I spoke to an organizer who introduced himself as Peter, he told me that Llama Ink also acts as a way for artists to be able to express themselves without having to compromise. “We’re trying to take the ‘starving’ out of ‘starving’ artist.” [ Continue Reading ]

kyoko okubo 06 Makin that paper

Kyoko Okubo crafts the cutest things out of paper. The post on Booooooom! features some of her work (where I got the thumbnails below), but you can view more of her work here and still more cuteness here. I have no idea how big these pieces actually are, but I’m assuming that they’re rather small. The pieces featured on Mobilia Gallery show much more detail than the ones I have included, and are adorable. They’re called Narrative Paper Sculptures, and they’re friggin’ awesome.

At first glance, it may look like these are life-size Lego models.  But, they are actually nude models that have been pixelated while keeping the rest of the environment normal.  Photographer JeanYves Lemoine makes an amusing statement on what is ordinarily considered risky and taboo in his series entitled PIXXXELS for issue #3 of Amusement magazine.
