Rena Littleson Draws Herself In Black And White Detail.

Australian artist Rena Littleson‘s latest self-portrait series puts her in situations and postures occupied by the self-conscious, the martyred, the shamed, the belligerent, and the confused.

De Oro, Indeed! A Video With LNY.

Just wanted to share this small documentary by LNY, which takes video of everyday life in Cuenca, Ecuador, and what it looks like interspersed with images of LNY’s work. It shows, in a quite literal fashion, the figures and events which helped inspire his not-as-literal street art pieces. New color in an already colorful landscape.

Screaming Females – “Wild” Animated Music Video

To go along with Screaming Females’ community-based concept, DoodleDrag is this DIY animated film for “Wild.” Black-and-white drawings provide the backdrop as a kooky photography-based figure, reminiscent of Bert from Sesame Street joining faces with Homer Simpson, takes center stage.

Bowman crafts them slightly like one might create a tessellation, which contributes to their wildly disorienting qualities.

Filippa Barkman Does Hair… Grotesquely.

When I look at artwork by artist Filippa Barkman, there’s just about one thing I see. That thing is hair — mounds and mounds of it. Whether by way of conjoined twin wolves melting into a mass or a hollow-eyed ghost of a girl, pieces from Barkman’s latest series, In Limbo, draw a viewer immediately...Read...

OriginalStyle at Hellion Gallery

Last year’s romp into Portland’s First Thursday Art Walk yielded only a couple notable things. The best of them all, though, was Tokyo’s OriginalStyle at Hellion Gallery. He documents his favorite skate spots around Tokyo, and overlays acrylic type on intricately-drawn backdrops, but in a way that doesn’t feel trite or forced. OriginalStyle isn’t incorporating...Read...
