Although quite staunchly a dissident of materialism, one can’t help but see the beauty of design in these accoutrements of home furnishing. Granted, that ping-pong table is a bit ridiculous. DIY?
Ricardo Bofill & his architecture firm (Taller de Arquitectura) have reclaimed an old cement factory near Barcelona and turned it into their headquarters. Serving as one of the grandest examples of re-appropriation, the renovation of the turn of the 20th century industrial complex is astounding. Check out the gallery and video below for a bit of a walk through.
Leo Eguiarte‘s ‘About’ section on his website is humorous in its brevity. Simply stating “Leo Eguiarte is a Los Angeles-based artist.”, there isn’t a whole lot of background on the artist. Leo employs a relatively unique technique in using old circuit boards as a canvas- depicting futuristic worlds and polygonal forms with mixed media. Having stumbled upon his work via Juxtapoz, it is known that the artist has a tandem show coming up at the Slow Culture Gallery in L.A. […]
Shakespeare’s invention of the prefix Un- has been put to use in some pretty splendid ways (unreal, unperturbedly, but its place in the North Korean leader’s name seems appropriate. Rumored to have fed his dissenting uncle to 120 starved dogs, Kim Jong Un is quite an uncompassionate and undeserving and unqualified leader. Turning 31 today, Kim Jong Un is certainly swiggin’ some Hennessy with Dennis Rodman and gettin silly. Here’s hoping you have an unsavory and ungainly year Mr.Un! Enjoy […]

Chris Gilmour used to build models out of cardboard as ‘rough drafts’ & mock-ups for larger scale works out of bronze, wood, & stone; when he realized that the cardboard mockups were alluring their own right. “The thing that I like is the contrast between a very poor material, and very beautiful objects, very desirable objects,” Gilmour says of his own work. Spending a minimum of 3 months on each project, and sometimes up to half a year on the […]
Banksy is a modern day prophet who’s work beckons the masses to think; and for that he will go down in the books as a legend. After taking on the challenge of creating art on the Separation Wall in Israel’s West Bank, it seemed like Banksy couldn’t take on too much more ambitious of a project; but Banksy’s latest month long tour de force in New York has proved a rivaling feat.
