Got this shot of street art in St. Louis, love visiting the Gateway to the West
L’Amour Supreme painting with the help of Galen McKamy from Kidrobot at MadeLife in Boulder a couple months ago.
I am very proud of this short piece I just put together about Rod Luff for Beautiful Bizarre Magazine: http://beautifulbizarre.net/2014/04/07/trip-rod-luffs-neon-forests/
Took this picture in Denver’s Santa Fe arts district. Very clever, I feel like it really captures how disappointed people are in the NSA spying and how they expected better from the current administration.
Every once in a while you find a perfect art show, with talent, work that you can identify with and in this case a few smiles and laughs. This is entry two of three (see http://benjaminbenjamin.tumblr.com/day/2013/09/27/ for entry one) just because there is too much great art to fit into 1-2 entries.
The work above is from Emily Bennett Beck and Erin Goedtel, I took the pictures at the Soo Visual Arts Center in Minneapolis. The show is titled “Tiara Non Grata” and I feel like the work is pretty self explanatory but if you do want the artist explanations click here.
The show has glamorous women looking unhinged, sparkly poodle poop and paintings of a woman watching people make out. Who wouldn’t love this show! Stay tuned for entry three some time next week where I will post more pictures, see if I can find out more about these artists.
A couple pics from a recent trip to Vancouver, BC. Some great street art from I Heart, and some wheat paste from an artist I don’t know. And a picture of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
I can’t believe it has been a year since I visited Vancouver, here are some pics from that trip last spring.
Title: Ghosts are Everywhere
Artist: Myah Bailey
Part of the “Love Sick” series, which is the first part of Myah’s larger collection titled “Seaworthy”.
Lovesick is a series of images created by Myah Bailey depicting the female inhabitants of the fictitious coastal village of Seaworthy. The town centers around a tattoo artist who is also a prophet, with the gift of inking his customers with messages from within their soul. The patrons don’t choose their tattoos, but instead allow the prophet to transform them into a canvas to capture their own inner spirits in the form of words and images.
Funky animals in ethereal colors, giant hair and non-matching socks are her signature, but there is so much more to her. Myah Bailey is a woman who thrives in change. A lifetime of constant transition has brought her across the country, coast to coast, north and south, for now she is nestled in the mountains in Boulder, Colorado. Educated at Eastern Michigan, this former fashion photographer loves you, and thanks you for reading her biography.
If you are the rare, rare, very rare long time follower of this blog you may remember this article I wrote last year about the Aaron White at Knew Conscious. A non-traditional gallery, Knew Conscious is best known for shows at irregular intervals that draw crowds of thousands and has a knack for putting art I would describe as transcendent.
Despite the polished, worldly and already famous look of his work, CT has by and large been contained to Denver. By staying local, he has built a very large fan base here in Denver, consistently drawing large crowds and rave reviews in the mile high city. As proud as I am of the photos, make sure to get in and check out this show in person.
