NEW PAPER CUTOUTS BY ‘PAPERBOYO’

Posted on 0

New Paper Cutouts By ‘paperboyo’

London-based photographer Rich McCor, aka Paperboyo (previously) travels across the globe giving creative updates to buildings, bridges, and signs through the use of simple paper cutouts. By placing a black design in the foreground of his image, London’s Tower Bridge is instantly transformed into a looping roller coaster, and a Canadian building miraculously appears like a lengthy accordion. Although many of McCor’s pictures engage with architectural elements, the paper artist also makes use of the natural environment as a creative backdrop for his paper works. Recently he published a book based on his cutout journeys, titled Around the World in Cut-Outs. You can see more of his photographic collages on Instagram.

BANKSY UNOFFICIALLY COLLABORATES WITH BASQUIAT OUTSIDE THE BARBICAN

Posted on 0

Banksy Unofficially Collaborates With Basquiat Outside The Barbican

With the imminent opening of the first large-scale exhibition in the UK of the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat scheduled for the 21st, a couple Banksy pieces have shown up near the venue overnight. On his Instagram account, Banksy noted the irony of the Barbican, “a place that is normally very keen to clean any graffiti from its walls”, hosting the work of the legendary graffiti artist. The main piece, what we like to call “SAMO Stop & Search” if you will, has been done with stencil spraypaint, freehand spraypaint and oil pastel while the smaller ferris wheel piece (incorporating Basquiat’s instantly recognizable crowns in oil pastels) has been done with stencil spraypaint, with the black base having been painted with a brush. The reference of course for the main piece is Basquiat’s Boy and Dog in a Johnnypump from 1982. This has been remixed with a recurring theme in Banksy’s work  resulting in a sort of unofficial collaboration.

BURNING MAN 2017 IN PICTURES

Burning Man 2017 in pictures.

The scenery, the middle of the Nevada desert, is a dream. This is where every year thousands of people – 70,000 in this edition – are invited to attend the Burning Man festival. Designed in 1986 by a group of Californians, the event has turned into one of the most popular art events important and exclusive on the planet. In addition to the stars that flock to Black Rock City, the city built and destroyed specifically for the kermesse, there are also technology magnates: last year the elite of Silicon Valley, including Zuckerberg and Bezos (the founder of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post), he chose to participate while staying in deluxe campers. The protagonists of the event are visionary artworks, installations and theatrical performances. The theme of 2017 is the “radical ritual”: the public has been asked to make “interactive rites, processions, shrines icons and temples”. In Black Rock City comes the utopia, money does not exist and barter is the only form of exchange allowed. Everything will end with the Burning Man’s fetish in flames: the Festival will not be traced and the desert will slip back in silence.
