KATSU's Drone Paintings @ 2014 Silicon Valley Contemporary

Graffiti // Friday, April 11, 2014
We are heading down to check out the new Silicon Valley Contemporary art fair this weekend in the South Bay Area, and one of the things we are excited to check out is The Hole NYC's curation of KATSU's drone graffiti paintings. As stated in the video, "Katsu's new tool for urban decoration is a drone with a spray can. He's debuting it—and testing it—at the 2014 Silicon Valley Contemporary." Here is a video to get the idea...

Hamishi Farah "albeit tho" @ Blackartprojects, Melbourne

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 19, 2014
A fantastic collection of new media-centric paintings just opened up at Blackartprojects in Melbourne from Australian artist Hamishi Farah. "Albeit Tho" is exampled as "Painting as a platform to look at and around the physicality of digital images in an accelerated and image saturated discourse. IRL art production and .jpg economy as the out of sync video leaving a physical object as ephemera. Microblogging going macro, a misstep into the poetics of digital space, 'the feed' or 'stream' as anthology."

Facades by Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 12, 2014
An interesting project that sees photographer Zacherie Gaudrillot-Roy removing the bulk and structure of buildings and leaving only the set-like facades for the viewer. As the artist notes, "This series thus offers a vision of an unknown world that would only be a picture, without intimate space, with looks as the only refuge."

Walking Into a Gif: Installations by Dominique Pétrin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 06, 2014
Have you ever tried walking into an 8-bit wonderland? An animated gif? Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist Dominique Pétrin creates these fantastic psychedelic, immersive installations that seem to swallow you whole when you walk into them. I don't do drugs, but if I was accidentally dosed at a party, I would prefer Pétrin's style of hypnosis.

The World’s Most Realistic Finger Painting by Kyle Lambert

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 12, 2013
Or so the claim goes, and I had to keep going back to my colleagues in the office to make sure this wasn't a photograph. Apparently, using just an iPad, the app Procreate, and over 285,000 brush strokes, artist Kyle Lambert was able to recreate ever precisely a photograph of Morgan Freeman taken by Scott Greis. You have to spend time with the timelapse to understand how this goes down...

Watch: Olivier Ratsi's "Onion Skin"

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 29, 2013
French artist Olivier Ratsi has created this mesmerizing installation and video using light projection and a 5.1 surround sound broadcast. Using two walls at a right angle to each other, Ratsi projects light simultaneously off each creating basic geometric elements that blend into seemingly three dimensional landscape with multiple layers peeling and unfolding into a truly hypnotic experience.

"What The Future Sounded Like"

Music // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
A brilliant use of 30 minutes of your day would be to watch this documentary on electronic music, "What the Future Sounded Like," a great find from our friends over at TWBE. "Post-war Britain rebuilt itself on a wave of scientific and industrial breakthroughs that culminated in the cultural revolution of the 1960’s. In this atmosphere was born the Electronic Music Studios (EMS), a radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians who utilized technology and experimentation to compose a futuristic electronic sound-scape for the New Britain."
