Serving With Slaysia: Ep. 2

•••
Asia… Asia, Asia: Asia. Is a very real thing. And reality will deal. In increasing measure. Well into the forseeable future. Asia is a Hollywood Renaissance. Black, Female, French, Bulldog. Serving for the stars. Slaying for life. Sitting sideways. Shading moonlight. Asia didn’t sign up for this, but — as a wise man once said: you don’t sign up for what you’[...]

Beauty Rots

•••
  In this strange place, ants eat cigarette buds to stay alive, instead of rotted fruit. What a cruel sanctuary we’ve made for ourselves. I respect these critters because they adapt with no complaints, they just figure it out and crawl. I see these ants eating cigarettes on my way back and forth from work each day. Even today, when my route has c[...]

Britney Tweets 2007: Ep. 2

•••
because if ifs and ands were pots and pans there’d be no betta work for tinker’s hands, because pink wigs birthed millennial whiplash, because it’s the rhyme behind seasonal reason, because you’re not B and will never see it her way… because Britney didn’t have Twitter in 2007, because the traphaus was birthed in the wake of Kevin, because Miss S[...]

UK based urban pulp iconographer and Art Nouveau cover artist TONE kicked off his solo exhibition at Dock St Market recently (Nov 1). He was kind enough to give us a few words about his bright and graphic inspired works of art. Art Nouveau: You go by the name TONE, tell me about the origins of the name?

Masked Somewhere Underneath This Monstrosity Of A Title Is Your Typical Tortured Artist

•••
Oskar Brent Lawrence Malone. The four names named boy. Masked somewhere underneath this monstrosity of a title is your typical tortured artist, living in a damned state of puzzlement and isolation that can only truly be escaped through the execution of artwork. Primarily focusing on photography, Malone captures his idealistic reality with overlying shade[...]

Art and Aesthetic Aces: Stephen Cefalo's allegorical stew of personal narratives

•••
Stephen Cefalo was born in the hometown of Albrecht Dürer on the birthday of Winslow Homer, Charles Le Brun, and Franz Von Stuck, so he already had his work cut out for him. Admittedly, Stephen had trouble in school, but found comfort in drawing and was enchanted by the lonesome moans of the barges at night.  During his undergraduate studies at th[...]

Notre Chauvet Fuse Renaissance and Pop Art

In my opinion, the best work is that which combines unique things from the past to create an uncanny, new thing. That's why I love the work of Notre Chauvet. These Melbourne based artists focus on combining a renaissance / pop art fusion with a contemporary disco[...]
