Jack Vanzet is a triple threat artist, musical producer, and artistic director based outta Melbourne who is about to catch on fire (in a good way). Here’s a sampling of his art, and below it you’ll find a musical number he put together along with other goodies: You might notice the Chet Faker concert/tour poster at the end of the collection there – apparently Mr.Vanzet and Chet are chums and hang out and do cool shit together.

Stumbling across a piece of Giacomo Carmagnola’s art over on Another Reader, it was a no-brainer to look further into his portfolio (Giacomo’s tumblr). Visually akin to a malfunctioning or broken screen/monitor, Giacomo’s work has a very digital and post-post-post-super-post modern aesthetic ;} . Here are some examples of his evocative distortions:

Below the gallery of his photos you’ll find a collaborative mini-documentary shot on cell-phones that Katembo participated in to give […]

To say Brian Luong is an adept print-maker would be a understatement. His hyper detailed silk-screen prints will create a draft in that ol’ mind of yurz :} . Just found out Brian has a brother by the name of Kevin – you’ll certainly be seeing another post centered on his work in the near future. Until then Stay Brassy.
