the grandeur of European Rococo architecture

pablo-bronstein

We just discovered Free News Projects, who in turn introduced us to Pablo Bronstein.

“London-based Pablo Bronstein is a young artist floating out of time. His is an eye that can, say, synthesize the dripping, ornate grandeur of European Rococo architecture with the juvenile, weird, building-block edifices of the 1980s. In A Guide to Postmodern Architecture in London, a short book published by Walther Konig in 2008, Bronstein made it look obvious, and perfect. Bronstein’s indulgence educates selflessly, for his is an art that encourages others to look harder and draw the most from their own obsessions. In October 2006, the artist dryly guided a coach tour around London to share his discoveries.” Thanks to FNP for the tip.

Houston is at least 4 years behind New York and definitely 1 year behind New Orleans

The beginning of this article is classic…

HOUSTON – A new form of graffiti is popping up around Houston, one that has nothing to do with spray paint.

It’s called “wheat pasting,” so named because of the paste used to plaster traffic signal boxes and other vertical surfaces with large sheets of paper which are pre-printed with the artist’s message.

“That’s something new that’s just come into Houston,” said Martin Chavez, who runs the graffiti abatement program for the Greater East End Management District.

Reyes will customize your bed

reyes-custom-bed

Reyes sent us over images of a newly completed project he did involving a seriously fresh customization of a japanese flat bed.  Here’s what he had to say:

“Recently I undertook another interior design project, this time on a japanese flat bed. The client loved the work so much they purchased a painting from me to complete their bedroom motif. The interior design projects are a great use of my painting abilities, keep an eye out for a new signature line of tables, benches and chairs by yours truly. thanks to Julio,Ann, and Dylan Maddux”

Os Gêmeos on Handselecta

For those who don’t know, Os Gêmeos are a pair of the finest writers in Brazil.  Handselecta recently caught their handstyles on camera.  Peep the video here and one more (which seems like a brazilian rendition of the philly hand) after the jump.  For those who haven’t seen it or need a refresher, here are also some photos from their show last summer at Deitch.

Pose MSK

Chicago’s own, Pose has been mesmerizing us with an insane color palette featuring letters and characters that put mostly everyone to shame.  Thankfully being the nice guy he is, Pose gave us the total spectrum of work to provide to you in slideshow format. Start taking notes.

Art21: Art in the Twenty-First Century on Hulu

Peep it.  4 seasons, 16 episodes.  Great for a rainy Sunday.

“Art:21–Art in the Twenty-First Century” is the only series on television to focus exclusively on contemporary visual art and artists in the United States, and it uses the medium of television to provide an experience of the visual arts that goes far beyond a gallery visit. Fascinating and intimate footage allows the viewer to observe the artists at work, watch their process as they transform inspiration into art, and hear their thoughts as they grapple with the physical and visual challenges of achieving their artistic visions.”
