Hyperreal Pencil Drawings by Redosking

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 20, 2014
We know eyes are an important piece of the artist's puzzle when doing either figurative or any kind of painting, but these pieces from Redosking are quite impressive on the scale of talented of hyperreal works. Knowing that they are done by colored pencils with this much detail is another measure of the artist's talent.

Design // Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Made in an edition of 23, naturally. 

Wes Anderson // Centered

Design // Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Two-thirds of our office has seen "The Grand Budapest Hotel," and we all agree it was one of Wes Anderson's strongest stories to date, right up there with "The Royal Tenenbaums" in terms of originality and overall filmmaking. (We like every film, "Darjeeling Limited" has a special place in our hearts as well). Somebody very clever, kogonada, who also created the awesome Kubrick "One-shot perspective" cut, has taken all the Wes Anderson films and shown the filmmakers knack for being "Centered."

Hamishi Farah "albeit tho" @ Blackartprojects, Melbourne

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 19, 2014
A fantastic collection of new media-centric paintings just opened up at Blackartprojects in Melbourne from Australian artist Hamishi Farah. "Albeit Tho" is exampled as "Painting as a platform to look at and around the physicality of digital images in an accelerated and image saturated discourse. IRL art production and .jpg economy as the out of sync video leaving a physical object as ephemera. Microblogging going macro, a misstep into the poetics of digital space, 'the feed' or 'stream' as anthology."
