Earlier this month, Mark Whalen (maybe you know him as Kill Pixie) had a grouping of new works on display with Edwina Corlette Gallery at the Melbourne Art Fair. We have done a lot with Mr Whalen over the past year (videos, studio visits, magazine features) but we think this is the first time we have seen basketballs in his work. We could be mistaken, but we think not.

We are here to present a behind the scenes look at the making of Autolux's music video based on artwork of Mark Whalen, with direction by designer and animator, Thomas McMahan.

Mark Whalen (aka Kill Pixie), who will have an extensive feature in the January 2012, just released a new print, Geometric Constructions, through Gallery A.S. The new 3-color offset lithograph editioned by Whalen, exploring the relationships between nature and humans, or perhaps more human-like beings, appears as otherworldly botanical print and reflects Whalen's current body of work.
