and maybe every day for a while…
Brandon Friend sent us over images of 4 newly completed pieces from his Starving Artist series. In his words, they are all
“30″ x 30″ paintings of the inner contents of my friends refrigerators (most of which have all graduated with a degree in art). Good time for good ol’ conversation and fun about sustaining life and a plentiful harvest!”
Hieroglyphics, At The Helm, 1998
Every player needs a throne… Check out designer Noel Duigan’s collection of furniture. Ex UAE military turned designer, who studied in Italy has created some interesting combinations. Check out his site to see all the styles, there are so many to choose from.
The product is 100% made in Italy, all my original designs. Beech wood, fire resistant foam and fabric.
Bespoke pieces available on request, also do children’s range, and beds. Available for delivery anywhere in the world. Currently I am located in Dubai, but trying to get set up in LA.
I just recieved my copy of Wallpaper. I have noticed over the past few issues, that the nudity has increased. For example, take this cover by Peter Saville and Nick Knight.
I love long Island, damm this was funny. Long Island the State
ArtLust, There are so many things wrong with this video. sound, it sounds like she was recorded in a empty warehouse. It reminds me of college when the poster people come to campus to sell you the giant posters, you would buy your favorite band and then a art print. And like a drunking haze, you signed up for a new credit card with 28% interest…
Sometimes we have conflicting opinions over here in Headquarters…
That nerdy looking, not-so-bright girl with the great rack in your Art History class? She’s blossomed into pawning decorative art prints on the Internet. Fortunately, neither she nor her bosses take themselves too seriously. ArtLust is cheap and minutely informative, but what it lacks in quality it makes up for in entertainment. It is those painful moments where you have to feign interest in whatever she is talking about, just to get her out the door. Watch enough in a row, and not even the dumbest bumblings will phase you. Practice makes perfect.
Just for fun.
This is a good looking print. The fifth in the Duality of Humanity series and fourth in collaboration with Al Rockoff, DOH 5 is in an edition 0f 450 and will retail at $50 at some time today (6/16).
Every once in a while I go through my old stacks of magazines and find a little gem. This one from T. DEE’s Under Cover magazine from the Nineties.
Here, he interviews KAWS at the age of 21
KAWS – STRAIGHT OUTTA JERSEY
KAWS HAS FOR A FEW YEARS NOW BEEN A PERSONAL FRIEND, AND AN EFFECTIVE PARTNER. BUT THAT’S NOT THE REASON WHY I WANTED TO DO A FEATURE ON HIM. I FEEL THAT HE HAS IN A SHORT TIME DEVELOPED A VERY INFLUENTIAL STYLE, AND HAS BECOME A VERY WELL RECOGNIZED WRITER. WHAT FOLLOWS IS AND INTERVIEW KAWS GAVE UNDER COVER ON FEBRUARY 25, 1995.
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Jersey City, New Jersey
WHAT’S THE SCENE LIKE THERE?
It’s very slow. There’s mostly just a bunch of kids that bomb. Not really doing that much as far as piecing. There’s not that many kids doing walls period. There’s a few kids here and there, but they come out like once a year. Besides the kids I paint with, that’s about it.
Jersey City is definitely a cool place to live. It’s kinda out of the spotlight, and rent’s cheap. (laughs)
J.C. is about 20 minutes away from Manhattan by train, and with no traffic a 5 minute car ride, and that’s pretty much where the scene is at. Most kids I paint with are there.
HOW, AND WHEN DID YOU GET STARTED?
