Take a look at more shots of wall below and let your eyes fool you into visualizing a hole on the side of the structure. Discuss Conor Harrington here.

Streets: Interesni Kazki / Waone – “Eternal Recurrence” (Sicily)

After sharing one side of the silo painted by AEC, one half of the Interesni Kazki, we now have a look at the effort from his partner Waone. Keeping with the theme of Greek mythology, the Ukranian artist added imagery on his side of the structure that reference the Triskelion, a symbol of the sun and the passage of time, but also the symbol of Trinacria, Helios’ Island, or now modern Sicily. Helios was the solar god and also guardian of oaths, and responsible for he gift of sight. Discuss […]

Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s Food Face Portraits As Sculptures By Philip Haas

Currently (thru October 18th) at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Philip Haas has installed his larger than life sculptures that take Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s famous face portraits (made from fruits, vegetables, flowers) into the third dimension. Taking inspiration from the Renaissance painter’s The Four Seasons set of paintings, Haas has impressively recreated the characters in 360 degrees and at fifteen feet high and placed them on the south lawn of the museum. Make sure you head inside to check out the smaller scale models as well if you plan to visit. […]

Upcoming: Eric Joyner @ Corey Helford Gallery

Fans of Eric Joyner (interviewed) will be pleased to hear that he will be having another solo in September at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles after his last one there in 2013 (covered). Hopefully, this new painting he is working on will be part of the new body of work as we are quite smitten by his robot police lineups and this newest one looks to be shaping up nicely. Of course, we will also be looking forward the Bay Area-based artist’s predilection for painting […]

Showing: Snarkitecture / Daniel Arsham – “The Beach” @ National Building Museum

For those who have a chance to visit Washington DC through September 7th, make sure you stop by the National Building Museum to check out an immersive installation from Snarkitechture. Cofounders Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham have imagined up a beach with an ocean of 750,000 recyclable plastic balls. The monochromatic and minimalistic installation certainly mirrors the aesthetic seen in many of their previous projects and is certainly something visitors of all ages will enjoy.
