MLK, Spray Painted Stencil and Mixed Media on Cotton Rag Paper, 30″ x 44″
Opening to the world at Stolen Space in London, England on November 2nd, 2007, Shepard Fairey‘s Nineteeneightfouria will be an outstanding continuation of his blockbuster E Pluribus Venom show. Here are some picks of the litter, one piece from each of his six various mediums. As always, a jpeg never does a piece of art justice, so make it over to London and see this show, it will be amazing.
According to BrandChannel, Forbes magazine’s,
“The Stern”, designed by Ligne Roset, sideboards with drawers and/or doors, with a structure in multi-ply, finished in walnut veneer. Top, rear and fronts finished in a choice of gloss white, taupe or anthracite lacquer. This is a beautiful unique piece of furniture you need for your home!
Created by the Dutch Design House Demakersvan, whom we featured a while back in February, have come up with this nice but not your mother’s nice table centerpiece. The Lucky Charms are a ceramic centerpiece that expresses that fragile balance between centerpiece and functional
object.It is perfectly usable..if you break the chain. The pieces
can be individually combined to make a smaller or larger chain
and assemble your own collection of tableware.
I don’t know how I found this (blame the internet), but it is sad.
This weekend I was at the brooklyn Botanical garden for so Halloween activites and I stumbled upon this child and his interesting costume. I wonder if he really know’s who G.W. is or does he only know him as the Reaper, he plays on tv.
Cunt Coloring Book by Tee Corinne. Hmmm, this weekend I was looking for some books to buy on campus and I came across this one. Published by Last Gasp, and features “Over 3 dozen cunts of every size and description for you to color. Originally used for a sex-education class. Crayons not included.” So I ask the question, who buys it? Or better yet who do you buy it for! Also available at amazon.
A new kinetic sculpture by David Ellis debuted at the current installation show ‘Heap’ in London. From the outside, the sculpture resemebles a human crouched on their knees. However on the inside, which on first glance seems like a storage space, Trash and cans come alive.
WallCandy has a great in-depth slideshow of the show through all stages of the installation. More photos here
Start your Monday off with a bang! It’s 1990 again, PC DeathSquad, made a video that takes me back to the days of Monsters of Rock. Drinking 40′s and schnapps and throwing up all over the place. Metal Rules!

In an act of pure capitalistic douchery, you are able to bid and win the ability to find out Banksy’s actual birth name.

Opening tonight in London at Black Rat Press is Heap. Starring Swoon, David Ellis, and Monica Canilao, the show will be a standout on the tiny island with the big currency.
“The former CEO of the leading supplier of body armor to U.S. soldiers in Iraq was charged yesterday with looting the company to bankroll a lavish lifestyle that included a $10 million bat mitzvah for his daughter.
In addition to the bat mitzvah – which included performances by Aerosmith, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Kenny G and the Eagles – prosecutors said David Brooks got the firm, DHB Industries, to pay for other goodies….He allegedly reaped $185 million by selling DHB stock when he learned that 6,000 bullet-proof vests the company made were about to be recalled for being faulty and not able to block bullets” Via the NYPOST. This has to be my favorite quote from the article…”In honor of the band’s appearance, Brooks changed from a black leather suit into a magenta suede biker outfit covered with chains.”
At the local magazine store, I noticed a familiar name with a different look. Tokion magazine has redesigned itself in a larger more tabloid (think Interview) format. Now when is the creativity now conference? Or has that been 86′d? Read it if you like.
