Erotica // Wednesday, March 26, 2014
'Sensual, clever, rock’n roll – are all words that have been used to describe Copenhagen based Tine Helleshøj’s bold, individualistic style... Working in mixed media such as gouache, spray paint, stencils and oilpainted characters– Helleshøj’s nostalgic pop images of sexy pin up girls and macho men set against bold and colorful detailed backgrounds exude an aesthetic that is both joy-filled and mesmerizing at the same time...'

William S. Burroughs Shooting T-shirts... with his name on it

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 25, 2014
We are going to start this post off with saying we have absolutely no idea what is going on here. But somehow, William S. Burroughs, at the age of 82, shooting guns at t-shirts with his own name on it is sort of some form of abstract art. Or just weird. Maybe just weird. 

"Karma" by Oscar Monzó

Photography // Tuesday, March 25, 2014
Oscar Monzón’s book “Karma” is a study of the car as public and personal space. The book is intelligently designed, with strange juxtapositions of shiny chrome mechanical objects and surreal portraits from odd angles. Monzón uses an intense flash aesthetic and embraces his invasion of others privacy: showing photographs of drivers doing drugs, flipping the camera off, and in dire situations.

The Strange Paintings of RUBENIMICHI

Erotica // Tuesday, March 25, 2014
RUBENIMICHI creates paintings that are seemingly the bizarre lovechild of the religious, the scientific, the satanic and the tribal. The painter seems to explore the visual path of inherited myths, like that of Adam and Eve, and re-envisions them with a satirical twist that is often provocative or dark.

Robert C. Jackson's Candy-Filled Still Lifes

Illustration // Tuesday, March 25, 2014
Robert C. Jackson is a contemporary still-life artist whose paintings are far from the traditional definition of a "still life." Populated by balloon animals, toy dinosaurs, cakes, candies, cookies and ice cream, these paintings are immeasurably fun--yet don't be fooled by the bright colors, there's more than just fun going on in these scenes. 

The Collaborative Mind of J. Powers Bowman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 25, 2014
J. Powers Bowman creates collaborations with himself. Combining his insanely intricate elements of land air and seascapes, with more landscapes, cities and patterns, his illustrations are drawn, photocopied, cut, drawn and reconstituted again- all by him. I don't really know what that means but the result is just as insane as it was to begin with, but more complex. I'm going to go ahead and categorize this under 'blowing my mind.'
