Ono’u Tahiti graffiti festival - Part 3

Graffiti // Saturday, May 10, 2014
Another day baking in the hot Tahiti sun and our pale winter skin is beginning to turn into a summer bronze. We once again made our rounds around town to find many of the artists closer to completing their large murals, while many of the competitors found more new walls to paint. The two-day competition for the hefty $10,000 prize starts today and we look forward to seeing what some of the artists have up their sleeve.  

Mid-Century Postwar Italian Photography

Photography // Saturday, May 10, 2014
Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica, Federico Fellini. These were the pillars of Italian Neorealism; the auteurs who captured the psyche and desolate conditions of the Italian lower-class from 1944 to 1952, lost in a desperation that poverty begets. Their contemporaries, photographers like Ugo Zovetti, Ferruccio Crovatto, and Bruno Rosso, used their medium in similar fashion.

Juxtapoz // Saturday, May 10, 2014
Rene Almanza has really interested us for years. We were lucky to spend extensive time with the Monterrey, Mexico based painter in San Francisco a few years back, and watched him build a series of portraits were both done in a classical stlye as well as contain hidden narratives of futuristic post-humanism. The artist just opened a new body of work, "Landscape," at FIFTY24MX Gallery.

Nikki S. Lee

Photography // Friday, May 09, 2014
In her photographic series “Projects”, South Korean artist Nikki S. Lee fully immersed herself a-la-Daniel Day Lewis into each role she portrayed in her photographs. From ethnic groups to style driven social cliques to the elderly, each person she portrayed took on it’s own project which also served as each image’s title; for example “The Drag Queen Project”, “The Punk Project”, and “The Yuppie Project”.
