Jake Fried's New Hand-Drawn Animation: "Night Vision"

Illustration // Tuesday, September 15, 2015
We’ve posted before on Jake Fried’s drawings and animations and are thrilled that he’s created a new animation. Fried created the animation using only ink and white out (though in the past he’s incorporated coffee, collage, and gouache). The piece, “Night Vision,” is a trippy journey through drawings lost and created. He employs a mix of abstract imagery and reflections of the natural landscape, the animation eventually blinking out into stars.

MOMO’s first Philly mural is already done, and MOMO starts on the second wall later this month, a 27-story canvas in the heart of the city.

Alec Soth’s “Colorado Dispath” is currently on display at the Denver Art Museum through November 29, 2015.

Hajime Sorayama "Editions" @ AISHONANZUKA, Hong Kong

Erotica // Monday, September 14, 2015
One of our favorite Japanese artists who tends to make work in what you would call the "erotic" world, Hajime Sorayama, just opened a new solo show at Aishonazuka in Hong Kong. We did a feature on Hajime in our December 2014 issue, where he said things like, "I don't know what beauty means yet. I don't think we can understand each other truly." And he also said, "I'm an orthopedic surgeon and mad scientist of sorts." The show runs through October 3, 2015.

It's amazing how much we know about popular culture, especially as it took us very little time to identify what these movie posters were. French artist Madani Bendjellal has created this fun series where he has taken icons out of some of the most iconic movie posters of all-time, which still makes them super identifiable. Have fun guessing what is what!
