  • I love the lushness of classic Indian art. The rich colors and delicate motifs are amazing to experience so if you are in Seattle you need to visit the Seattle Asian Art Museum to see the show “Garden and Cosmos: The Royal Paintings of Jodhpur“. For a more contemporary take check out the works of Thukral and Tagra who explore hyper consumerism much in the same way as Murakami but following their own cultural aesthetics.
  • Kanye Wests Rat Pack look like a bunch of kooks that got lost in Paul Reubens closet. (Via AnimalNYC)
  • Street artist Mike Marcus brings the gallery outside with his “Red Dots” project. (via Art Politic)
  • “When those who dare call themselves “patriots”, display such mendacious and disparaging attitudes towards the best of American culture – barbarism will be found just around the corner”. Will Obama ever get a chance to fund the arts with the bunch of republican idiots thumping their chests for the camera (via Art For a Change)
  • Back in 1994 I lived in Atlanta and had the honor of meeting a couple of graffiti writers that have gone on to greatness one was Revok and the other Tackz. While Revok has become an icon in the art world Tackz seemed to disappear. Back in those days it seemed to me that Tackz was the main guy in this Dynamic Duo and everytime I heard about some exploit of Revoks I wondered what happened to the man. It’s good to see him being as original as I will always remember.
