All posts by Vivian Hua

Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.

Print-Your-Own Christopher Davison Print!

It’s easy for artists to be really sketched out about sending around 300dpi images of their works, because 300dpi is print quality; anyone who gets their hands on a 300dpi image can print a copy of an artist’s work. Luckily for art lovers, Christopher Davison is not too concerned with this issue. In fact, he...Read...

Mark Mulroney‘s Murals & Sketches.

Artist Mark Mulroney can be extremely crude, with fluids and body parts galore, but that only serves to add character to his fascinating murals and sketchbook illustrations. This particular series of murals below interests me because of their atypical use of shape and space. It’s extremely uncomfortable, but that’s what makes it work. (His website...Read...

This Week In Tumblr: February 21st, 2010!

Jonathan Zawada takes some age-old surrealistic influences and adds some mythical creature all up in them. Fenk‘s photography certainly captures the vibrance of life… Heather Jansch‘s horse might look like the Bodies Exhibit gone animal, but it’s actually made out of driftwood! Thank god! One of Ray Caesar‘s common characters seems to give up the...Read...

Hannah Stouffer Blik Graphics!

I dare say this might be bit intense of a graphic to hang on your wall, but that doesn’t mean this Blik Graphic by Hannah Stouffer, entitled Darkest Night, doesn’t really, really rock. It’s almost Escher-ish in its lines… minus the skulls and shadows, of course. Buy that design and more here. (And below is...Read...

Troy Gua! Fulcrum Gallery! Closing Reception! TONIGHT!

Head over to the Fulcrum Gallery in Tacoma tonight for the closing night of Monument, Troy Gua‘s current amazing show exploring the effects of war on, well, the human body. There’s also an artist talk going on tonight, which should be interesting. Reception starts at 6:00pm, but though it’s the closing reception, closing night isn’t...Read...

Clipd Beaks – “Blood” Music Video

I personally would like to sum this video up with a YouTube comment (since we all know how educated and eloquent YouTube users generally are): “Great video, but not for the squeamish, squirmish, Amish or Hemophobic.” Well, then. Let’s just say the video certainly lives up to its song title. Directed by Nathan Budde.

Balmorhea – Constellations Album Review

As Constellations is a concept record about “the cosmos and beyond,” the route that Balmorhea has taken to realizing this concept is simply remarkable. Digital music-making equipment has defined the realm of all things cosmic in a way that is now somewhat predictable; it seems that space is musically textured by long, drawn-out electronic ambience....Read...

This Week In Tumblr: February 14th, 2010!

We’re going to save you from all of the Valentine’s Day hearts we just posted, and simply go with some good, neutral, non-love-related art. Lissy Elle‘s most recent works seem to combine fantasy stories and fashion to study the contours of the human body in a fanciful setting. But she’s not all pretty things, either;...Read...
