Urban Art by Phlegm

wpid-phlegm5-2011-04-9-02-01.jpgPhlegm is a a urban/comic artist based in Sheffield, UK. “The name phlegm came from one of the four bodily humours in ancient Greek medicine, blood, yellow bile, black bile and phlegm. Phlegm was believed to be responsible for an apathetic and unemotional temperament.”
His comic, also titled “Phlegm”, contains his pen and ink illustrations, cartoons, and spraypaint work found in the streets. “The work is intricate, often surreal, but most of the time it looks like a mad person has been locked in a room for years with no company but a bottle of Indian ink and a scratchy nib….because that’s precisely what it is.” (more…)

Sculptures by Laurent Craste

wpid-11-2011-04-4-01-38.jpg
Montreal based sculptor Laurent Craste creates very unusual sculptures. While creating them Laurent transforms the act of destruction to the act of creation. His beautiful sculptures from porcelain, knives, axes and a bit were done by hand, without the use of forms. All the deformation of vessels he does before sending them into the oven. Take a look at his art works and tell us what do you think about such form of art. (more…)

Gerald Collings’ Meat Faces Of Death

wpid-made_flesh_02-2011-04-4-01-12.gif
Gerald Collings‘ paintings are  a perfect mix between Francis Bacon and your local butcher shop. These layered paintings look like they have been to hell and back. With images of skinned faces, torn apart rib cages, and bodies in various states of decay, they have become the ultimate test for how grotesque an image can be while still remaining a rich and seductive work of art.

Michal Maciej Bartosik

Michal Maciej Bartosik has created two new floating compression lights that are based on two of Kenneth Snelson‘s sculptures:  ‘Needle Tower’ and ‘City Boots’.
Utilizing Snelson’s structural discovery, appropriated and popularized by Buckminster Fuller as “Tensegrity,” Bartosik proposes new possibilities of light forms, whereby the light source and its electrical wire work mutually in compression and tension to produce a seemingly discontinuous field of light defined by it structural (more…)
