What a nice idea from Danish artist Jacob Dahlstrup. He creates images using a tattooing machine on heavy watercolour paper.
Dahlstrup sketches the design in pencil first, then goes over it with the tattoo needle to create the final effect.
Via CRBlog, thanks.
I am not really sure how I have managed to miss the fantastic, minimal but colourful work of artist James Turrell before, but I sure would have liked to have seen his exhibition finishing Friday at the Gagosian.
I am loving these RGB works by Italian studio Carnovsky.
A selection of wallpapers, playing cards and prints, each features overlapping illustrations, different elements of which are revealed depending on whether a blue, green or red light is shone upon them.
A great idea, via CRBlog thanks.
As I look out of my office window at a grey sky I am particularly liking these kaleidoscopic-ly colourful installations by Gabriel Dawe.
Titled Plexus they are constructed simply, using gütterman thread, nails and wood.
Via The Fox Is Black, thanks once again.
On view through November 27, 2010 at Osaka’s CAS, Mitsuhiro Okamoto’s “Batta Mon” sculptures raise questions about the relationship between authenticity and imitation. The locust shaped works are produced from fake designer bags – with logos prominent – and the name plays off of the slang term for knock off.
Okamoto’s work was previously displayed at the Kobe Fashion Museum, but removed after Louis Vuitton protested pieces containing their brand logo.
