NAKED PEOPLE GET BODYPAINTED IN WASHINGTON SQUARE PARK

Posted on 0

Naked People Get Bodypainted In Washington Square Park 1

For the fifth year in a row, Andy Golub and the Human Arts Connection threw a very public and very nude party, gathering some 50 artists and 60 completely naked models in Washington Square Park for a Saturday afternoon of body painting. It was part celebration of positive body image, part demonstration of this unique art form, and part declaration of freedom of expression, as full public nudity is protected in NYC if it’s part of an artistic performance. Golub has previously explained what he’s trying to do with his shows, saying, “People are preoccupied with the sexuality of the body… I’m trying to move the conversation beyond that.”
The activities of NYC Bodypainting Day started over by the General Giuseppe Garibaldi statue, as the artists and models did their thing in barricaded pens beneath tents, which provided shade while the barricades served to hold back the photographers, art appreciators, and gawkers who showed up in full force.

THE MAGICAL ARTWORKS OF DOMENIC BAHMANN

Posted on 0

The magical artworks of Domenic Bahmann

Domenic Bahmann is a multidisciplinary visual artist and designer. He is born in Munich, Germany and currently lives and works in Canberra, Australia.
He works as an artist and designer creating visual content and art for campaigns, websites, apps and magazines. His work has been featured on many design websites and magazines including Time Magazine, New Scientist Magazine, and The Independent.
His work has an understated style to his tongue-in-cheek miniature designs that communicates simple ideas tastefully and humorously.
Dominic Bahmann’s style is diverse, but his clever miniaturized arrangements of easily recognizable symbols are probably his most eye-catching work. Each little miniature item is like a small and self-contained joke or statement, and it only helps that most of them are created out of simple arrangements of every-day objects that we could easily collect at home.
“Art and Design thinking goes hand in hand. It is important to engage both types of thinking in a creative process. Art allows me to explore new perspectives. It creates new directions of how I approach Design.”

Twinkle twinkle little guys by Kila Cheung

Kila Cheung, from Hong Kong, is a full time artist specialized in painting and sculptures. In the summer of 2017 he started a 30 days art project called “Twinkle Twinkle Little Guys” in his home place, Hong Kong. Twinkle Twinkle Little Guys became Kila’s working partners.
Warning lights are found everywhere in our city where thousand of works are in progress. We can find them on roadside, footbridges, bicycle tracks, pedestrian crossings and construction sites etc. When evening falls, they will light up automatically to caution people. They vigorously blink and blink without attracting special attention. They are like small potatoes in this big city.
Kila associated road warning light with the shape of a human being. The idea of drawing faces on them slipped into his brain.
Amber Au is his little partner in this 30 days art project. They placed Little Guys in different corners of the city and then they uploaded the photos and videos with locations every day to social media. This method attracted people following the project so people started to search for them in the city. In their journeys, they went The encounters of Little Guys and people were precious for Kile Cheung‘s art project.

WAITING FOR FAMOUS PEOPLE, JONATHAN MONK

Posted on 0

Waiting for famous people, Jonathan Monk

Jonathan Monk playfully skewers seminal works and ideas from modern, Conceptual, and Minimalist art predecessors like Mark Rothko, Bruce Nauman, and Sol LeWitt. In Deflated Sculpture (2009), he remade Jeff Koons’s 1986 Rabbit as a series of five stainless steel sculptures in progressive states of deflation, quoting Koons’s original source (an inflatable toy bunny). In the “Rew-Shay Hood Project” (2008-2011), Monk commissioned a hot-rod painter to airbrush photographs from Ed Ruscha’s 1967 Twentysix Gasoline Stations on to the hoods of classic muscle cars.

THE DISTORTED NARRATIVE ART OF GREG ITO

The distorted narrative art of Greg Ito

Los Angeles-based Greg Ito presents pared down, graphic vignettes that cultivate a sensation of tension through composition and color. With three or four small scenes rendered within a single canvas, Ito’s storyboards ominously collapse the past, present, and future. The result is a distorted narrative unhinged from the natural sequence of time. Taking cues from illustrated children’s books and aircraft safety cards, Ito’s paintings address pictorial spaces designed to overcome normal language barriers, while provoking more uncertainty than they resolve.

SUDDENLY YOU STOP WONDERING WHERE THE HELL IT CAME FROM

Posted on 0

Suddenly You Stop Wondering Where The Hell It Came From

Suddenly you stop wondering where the hell it came from. Something strange stranger just hit you just across your face, so you just stood still. This was Erik Pirolt‘s first encounter with what would turn out to be an art of very distinctive methods and branches. This world is constantly changing, and it is therefore essential to continuously detect it again. What is most interesting is standing over the water; buy a motorboat for expensive money, or build a fantastic craft world not seen the spouse? Some of us know the answer to that question. This aspect of Erik Pirolt’s work might also be the most visible and definitely inspiring at a deep non-verbal level in what it expresses itself as to what it means to exist within these physical frameworks we have been born into.
