Andreco: "Flags Up and Tongues Sticked Out", New Year Eve 2015, Bologna

Street Art // Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Since meeting Andreco during Nuart 2014, he has fast become one of our favorite street and public artists. The balance of interventions, performance, environmentally-focused art with just purely beautiful aesthetics makes the Italian artist one of our favorites (and soon to be featured in an upcoming issue). On New Year's Eve a few weeks ago, in Bologna, Italy, Andreco and friends staged "Flags Up and Tongues Sticked Out," a performance piece, with each friend asked to "paint one side of a flag and burn it with the burning sculpture Vecchione in the main square of Bologna for The New Year Eve."

Tom of Finland: Early Work 1944 – 1972 @ David Kordansky, Los Angeles

Erotica // Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Touko Laaksonen a.k.a. Tom of Finland (1920 – 1991) is widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s most influential artists for his revolutionary representation of the male figure. His drawings of fantastically muscled men engrossed in acts of homoerotic desire comprise one of the most inventive portrayals of the human body in modern times. These pictures of gay men as virile, confident, and unashamed–equally radical for their near-illicit, underground distribution–originated an empowering queer iconography and liberating spirit that increasingly inspires popular culture.
