I found this while strolling through L.E.S. This can be said of so many “artists,” but that’s another discussion for another day.
“If Rihanna is an artist, does that make me a singer?” – Paul Richard #questionsthatneedanswers
“Because for every big story of blatant sexism that I tell, there are dozens of far more subtle ones that I could be relating.” #overheard
“Beyond these are even more subtle and complicated aspects, such as the perpetual feeling of being trapped into having to choose between either conforming to the stereotype of being a woman, or conforming to the stereotype of being a woman who doesn’t want to conform to the stereotype of being a woman.” – Julia (barefootscientist)

Dale Grimshaw has been experimenting with the new Liquitex acrylic spray paint. The artist recently completed this haunting mural using the paints just outside Signal Gallery on Hanbury Street in London.
Elvis Presley had millions rocking and swinging to his music. Despite the undeniable influence there were skeptics who saw a different picture. In the words of Little Richard, “He was an integrator…they wouldn’t let black music through. He opened the door for black music.” In the same vein, in the words of Sammy Davis Jr, “There was something just bordering on rudeness about Elvis. He never actually did anything rude, but he always seemed as if he was just going to. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate him eleven.” Miami based artist Pete Kirill might be of the latter opinion when it comes to the King of Rock and Roll. His latest mural makes a statement about how Elvis was influenced by black music, and then in turn Rock and Roll influenced Hip-Hop. Take a closer look at the images below.
“Love and Luck” is Hugh Leeman’s newest 15′ x 22′ oil painting and participatory installation at SOMArts in San Francisco. The piece is a meditation on relationships, and according to the artist a meditation on his relationship with my father, and his friend, homeless street musician Blue.
