Whether or not you're a fan of the "Station to Station" project, the "happening" that travels around the country in a locomotive packed with musicians and artists, there's no denying that Olaf Breuning's Smoke Bomb installation is stunning and generated the most memorable moments and images from Station to Station's latest rail trip.

In our May 2011 issue, we had a blast interviewing a group of artists who had never been in the magazine or website before. It was a fun project, one that inroduced us to amazing artists like Eric Yahnker, Hilary Pecis, Old Boys Club, and of course, the genius of Olaf Breuning. Olaf remains one of our favorites, and his new series of works up at Metro Pictures in NYC right now, The Life, are 9 foot tall round collages on metal and a series of sculptures that are both imposing and incredible. The show is up through July 31, 2015.

Olaf Breuning's "The Art Freaks," is a group of color photographs transposing the signature styles of seminal 20th-century artists into prosaic body painting. Both humorous and uncanny, the series not only questions our relationship to the enduring artworks Breuning chose to reference, but also to the reproductions and consumable patina through which most of us experience these artists' works and their distinctive aesthetics.

We have featured Olaf Breuning's work in our magazine in the past (the May 2011 interview is online for you to see here), but the topic of his drawings has not been a main focus. Breuning is known primarily for his practice in installation, sculpture, and photography, but his drawings are a delight as well.

Our May 2011 issue is about to hit newsstands, and we are pleased to announce that Los Angeles-based fine artist, Eric Yahnker, is the cover of both our newsstand and subscriber covers. After a successful solo exhibition, Cracks of Dawn, earlier this year with Ambach & Rice at Kunsthalle in LA, we sat down with the artist and talked about lifting weights and process.
