Pink: A series by Prue Stent

Erotica // Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Let's take a moment to celebrate the color pink, in all its glory, in all its rare use in the natural world or art in general. For some reason, seeing this great series of Pink by Melbourne's Prue Stent made us realize just how rare pjnk is used, or better yet, how rare it is that pink is used well. From Staged Photography, "The themes of her photography center around femininity and the struggle of identity in women. The color pink is used to represent femininity either physically or emotionally throughout her work."

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Though it has been happening a bit more in the past few years, it’s not everyday that a prolific “outsider” artist is discovered or shall I say uncovered. By uncovered I almost mean literally because documentarians Aaron Wickenden and Dan Rybiky found this gentleman buried in his own squalor, happily and delusional-y painting away. Almost There digs deep and goes further than your average artist profile film. Check out the trailer below and start digging under rocks in your own town.
