Releases: Huskmitnavn – “Papirarbejde” (Paperworks)” Book

For the last several years, Huskmitnavn (featured) has devoted time to creating and sharing his witty drawings on paper. Recently, he collected some of the personal favorites into a new book titled Papirarbejde (Paperworks). Between working on paintings, murals, illustrating, and the occasional graffiti adventure, the Copenhagen-based artist has spent the last few years creating little paper works almost daily. Often folding, bending, and tearing the surface in order to achieve the desired outcome, the idea is to get the strongest possible effect with the minimal possible intervention. These ink on […]

Releases: Patrick Martinez – “Po-lice Misconduct Misprint” Prints

Patrick Martinez’s recent works includes what he calls the Po-lice Misconduct Misprint series, a riff on the Pee Chee Folders of the ’70s and ’80s. The paintings evoke a feeling of nostalgia as we think back to our early school days but when examined closely, the viewer realizes that the Los Angeles-based artist has replaced the high school-age students engaged in sports or other activities with images of police brutality and portraits of victims we have all seen in the news. Some of these works have now been made available […]

Pejac Wound 4

Releases: Pejac – “Wound” Print

After returning from an inspiring trip to Jordan (covered), Pejac spent the last couple days finalizing his upcoming print release, Wound. Showing an ice breaker leaving a bloody scar as it roams the frozen ocean, it’s one of the works by the Spanish artist that speaks to major environmental issues. Through a minimalist approach, using a limited color palette and lots of negative space to accent the message, Pejac created an emotive image that speaks volumes. Symbolizing the irreparable damage to the environment caused by human behavior, Wound is one of […]
