Eerie Entomology

Illustration // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Serbian illustrator and graphic designer Vladimir Stankovic's strange and inspiring collection of insects almost manage to hide their alien weirdness (an extra eye, an unnaturally bulbous head) beneath the immediate beauty and charm of his drawings. Stankovic is currently working on his master's thesis in Finland, developing his craft and experimenting with new ways to combine traditional and digital illustration media.

Revs Does Rust

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Here are two great pieces by Revs welded to the streets of New York. Possibly the most resilient and durable street art one could put up for all the variables of extermination.

Signe Vilstrup: Ritual

Erotica // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Haunting, timeless, and darkly romantic, "Ritual" is a short fashion video directed by Signe Vilstrup, a Danish photographer, and is currently featured in Treats! Magazine, Issue No. 3. The video takes its seductive cues from a variety of sources, including the wild abandon of pagan ritual, the ghostly beauty of folktale nymphs, and the inherent eroticism of period dress.

Michael Miller "West Coast Hip-Hop: A History in Pictures" @ FIFTY24SF Gallery, SF

Music // Tuesday, April 17, 2012
This photo is way better than a hologram, don't you think? One of the premier hip-hop photographers on the West Coast during the boom of the early 1990s was Michael Miller, who captured iconic shots of the likes of Tupac, Eazy-E, and Ice Cube, and after a strong showing at LA's Known Gallery, Miller is bringing his legendary works to San Francisco's FIFTY24SF Gallery on April 27—28, 2012.

Josh Keyes "Above and Below" @ Joseph Gross Gallery, Tucson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Something for the Arizona crowd to look forward to. Portland, Oregon-based fine artist Josh Keyes will be opening Above and Below at the University of Arizona's Joseph Gross Gallery in Tucson starting on May 21, 2012. As the Gallery notes, "Above and Below dissects into a syncopated and practiced arrangement of uncommon encounters. Keyes’ creatures embody global political and social upheaval while poised to face the colossal summit of civil decay."

The Erotic Works of Raymond Pettibon

Erotica // Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Known for his comic-like drawings with disturbing, ironic or ambiguous text, Pettibon's subject matter is sometimes violent and anti-authoritarian. From the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, he was closely associated with the punk rock band Black Flag and the record label SST Records, both founded by his older brother Greg Ginn. Beginning in the mid 1980s, he became a well-known figure in the contemporary art scene.
