We have shown Kyle Bean's pencil shaving portraits on the site before, but we think we like this series of weapons made from harmless materials a bit more. Not sure how Che soap fits in, but he was a revolutionary weapon, and soap is cleansing.

The design team of Delphine Buhro and Michael Dreher put together an interesting design throughout the Goldman 25Hours Hotel in Frankfurt, Germany, but nothing is more odd than a men's bathroom where you let yourself go into a faux-Rolling Stones/Pop Art mouth. It would be weird. But kind of fun.

We all know that a corporate slogan can have multiple meanings, and artist Viktor Hertz has created a project called "Honest Logos" where he takes a major corporate logo and reimagines it with an honest explanation.

Well done simplicity is eternally appealing. This 2009 series by Klas Ernflo titled Color Pad simply combines wet paint and fabric, photographing the result. The resulting compositions, light, colors, and textures are beautiful and pleasing to the eye.

A pretty clever series of designer gas masks by designer and conceptual artist, Diddo. A nice ode to consumerism and the idea of brands suffocating our daily lifes, and the subversive similarities between the fashion world and the Military Industrial Complex.

We are fans of Jux-featured artist, Cory Arcangel, and his reappropriation of media and popular culture. His new exhibition is of particular interest; Arcangel and French aritst Pierre Bismuth are collaborating in a presentation of Guy Debord’s 1973 film Société du Spectacle (Society of the Spectacle) with the instructional signal of a projector — “CHANGE BULB” — permanently blinking over the image track.

Joe Bradley's clever art is earning him an immensely successful reputation (some of his artworks are selling for around $70,000). The Rhode Island School of Design graduate plays with simple imagery, drawing upon minimalism, primitivism, and abstract expressionism and incorporating unusual practices such as walking on his canvases, inviting others to walk on his canvases . . .

Artist Kim Alsbrooks developed her series, "White Trash," while living in the US South and beginning to understand what she calls a culture of "myth, biased history and bizarre sentimentality obout old wars and social structures." To juxtapose what used to be painted on ivory, the artist now paints portraits on trash and beer cans.

This will get someone's attention. It got ours. The New Zealand government, more specifically the Land Transport NZ, used a blender filled with human organs to get a point across about speeding. The more speed, the more your organs will cause and/or be a mess. Clever work.

Andrew B. Myers' work uses simple everyday observations to make clever cracks at habits and annoyances we can all relate to. His work focuses on the everyday, but seems to encompass the general humor of human behavior with these beautifully minimal works. Here we have a selection of his works from the later part of this year.
