Neltner’s Hommage To Hank

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 26, 2010

I just finished up printing these posters for artist Keith Neltner. Keith has been creating artwork for the Hank William’s camp for as long as I can remember. He has done some pretty amazing work. Check out http://www.neltnercreative.com and pick up a nice piece of history.

Willy Verginer

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 20, 2010

I recently came across an Italian sculptor by the name of Willy Verginer. His work gave me the same eerie feeling you get when walking through a wax museum. For some reason my head could not rule out the possibility that these inanimate objects could somehow walk out of the gallery.

“Turkey Hill” Print Release

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 19, 2010

It has been a while since I have released a print of my own. I decided to take a step back from the squeegee and get in touch with my inner artist. Oddly enough, there was whiskey involved…lots of it. I decided to produce a series of prints in which I physically incorporate my subject matter into the print. For this first print titled “Turkey Hill” I mixed 101 proof Wild Turkey bourbon into each color. A pint of whiskey and a few shots later I had the first print in the series. The print is a 5 color edition of 40 printed on 290 gsm cotton paper and will be available 8/25/10 for $35. For all those who are wondering, yes this print does in fact smell and taste like whiskey.


Nice One From GREY

As you may or may not know, I am a sucker for ad campaigns that cross over into the fine art arena. Here is a great new campaign done by GREY for pilot extra fine pens.

Vhils

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 6, 2010

Vhils has quickly become a crowd favorite in my book. I think what really catches my eye is when people push the process. Vhils takes a pretty classic stencil cut technique and puts his own personal spin on it. He incorporates nature and other found elements into his color palette. He even carries these principles into his screen prints, which often times include bleach as one of the colors. I think this video really sums up Vhils style and approach to his art.

Dog Days At The BLDG

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 5, 2010

Ok so it’s hot up in this piece. Juno, the resident studio dog, has pulled out all the tricks in her quest to find the coolest spot.  Here is her latest attempt. For some reason she felt that pushing her bed on top of a rolled up rug would make life cooler. Not sure if I can tip my hat for that one.

Book ‘Em Alexander

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 5, 2010

I first came across Alexander Korzer-Robinson while attending the festivities at art Basel in Miami. He was a real prime time player and stood out from the crowd. His work is mesmerizing, it literally draws you in. I’ve recently seen his work start to crop up in galleries around the world. Keep your eye on this guy.

Eine, Simply Good

Posted in Walls by BLDG on August 3, 2010

I’ve always been drawn to art that makes an impact on a particular movement. It’s hard sometimes because this art isn’t always the most technically mastered stuff. I guess coming from a design background I really respect the power of an identifiable style. Shepard Fairy, love him or hate him, has mastered a style. The London Police have turned a simple smiley face into an immediately recognizable icon. Space Invader owns the Rubik’s Cube. All of these artists have risen above the crowd because of this basic principle. Its almost like a kick in the pants how quickly you can recognize these artists. One particular kick for me has been Eine. I’ve been following his work for a while now and he has continued to stay true to his path. When you look at Eine’s installations there is no question who created it. For that, Mr. Eine, I tip my hat in your general direction.

My Hat Tips To You Mr. Levi

I know this video has been flooding around the internet but I think it is worth a post. What a great example of how mainstream USA is still reverting to grass roots “instillation” inspired concepts. I particular like the subtle product shot in the final frame of the video.
