Brock Davis Everyday

Lots of different people like to steal the jack-of-all-trade title but Brock Davis takes the claim to a different level.  While his website claims that he has a “’knack” for what he does, I say he has a “larger-than-life-super-gift”. Davis is highly published in advertising but his projects are seeded throughout the artistic world.  You […]

Untitled, 2010, Acrylic on Plywood

Poured on the Floor

Much to my mother’s dismay, I’m pretty sure at five years old I was dumping paint on my kitchen floor while shouting “Look mommy, art!”  Though my work needed some refining, pour painting apparently has an edge in the art world, far beyond my childhood kitchen. Greenwich Village native, Holton Rower, is the artist of these colorful and eye […]

HOME? After stumbling through some pictures from Miler Lagos last Exhibit (titled HOME) I must say, I really like the concept his art. The bright lighting and white wall background give work a contemporary vibe and then, further, making novels upon novels the main focal point of the photo provides the eye-catching elements of knowledge, […]

Ron Ulciny Does Sculptures

I really enjoy the use of different materials and the natural colors that are used in this sculpture. The wood of the bowling pin compliments the nature infused sub-sculpture inside of it; the sandalwood color of the pin really working for this sculpture due to the darker elements of the night time scene within the […]

Yayoi Kusama is crazy but still going strong

Yayoi Kusama is still going strong at eighty-two years of age; the charmingly eccentric Japanese artist, who sold a painting for record-breaking $5.1 million in 2008 (highest for any living female artist at the time), has been granted a dizzying 14-roomretrospective by the Tate Modern in London. Personally I can’t help but admire Kusama; throughout her entire life, she has been a creative […]

Jarosław Jaśnikowski’s Marvelous World

I am not big fan of the surrealism movement, which includes artists such as  Salvador Dalí, Georges Limbour,  Joan Miró and  Marcel Duchamp, therefore when I was told by my friend, John McAllen, about his new obsession with artist, Jaroslaw Jasnikowsk, I was not phased. He kept insisting that I check out Jaroslaw’s work. He kept telling me about Jaroslaw’s use of imagery that […]

Perfect Picture or Perfect “Snap”

As many of you have heard Instagram was purchased by Facebook for 1 billion dollars. Yes, I did say BILLION not MILLION. Many people wonder why Instagram has became so popular and there are many hypothesis (i.e. user interface, sharing capabilities, etc) as to why this happened. I truly believe that their popularity and success […]

Shadow Art is Unreal!!!

I have never actually seen shadow art but by the look of these images, the art appears to require immense amount of creativity not only in the positionining of the materials used, the angle of the lighting but also in the images that are created. My favorite pieces are the ones that appear to be […]

Pianos as Art, not Music

A collaborative effort by Shauna Holiman and Penny Putnam, “Piano as Art” is an exhibition in which old pianos have been dismantled and worked into various designs and shapes. What took me immediately about this body of work wasn’t the novelty behind using a musical instrument for visual art, but rather that most, if not […]

Television Settings Reimagined

Tim Doyle’s latest collection, entitled Unreal Estate showcases some of TV’s most iconic locales rendered in his own unique style. Beyond my fanatical affinity for The Simpsons, it’s Doyle’s attention to detail and texture and his rich use of a narrow spectrum of on particular color that makes each print so engrossing. Take “Night Falls […]

Bristol: The Mecca of Street Art

While Banksy is as much a home name as any graffiti artist could be, Bristol, the city in which he’s from (maybe the only thing besides a possible name [Robin] that is known about Banksy), has become a center for street art. In August of 2011 a festival was held titled “See No Evil” which […]
