Awesome Anamorphic Work

Anamorphic art, pretty awesome stuff.  A few years ago I started seeing it pop up everywhere.  They even had a tv show following street/chalk artist Julian Beever who uses this style.
There are artists all over the world now taking this technique and flipping it on its head...
Just came upon the piece below which is just AWESOME...yes AWESOME...Mexican Studio Golpeavisa, with its great use of space and props to create the portrait of Chef Rene Redzepi for Clase Premiere Magazine.  Take a second and actually look at the piece below to get a good idea of the detail used to create the portrait.  Really cool and a great way to force us to look at things just a little differently.

Bill Nye, The Science Guy

Bill Nye was on The Nerdist Podcast this week... (go listen here).  I loved the idea of science with a comedy twist.  I can remember as a young-in watching episodes of the show...So it reminded me of an old parody they did about Momentum with a Morrissey song..Enjoy a little nostalgia...

Tame Impala, New Album, New Single

Tame Impala, out of Australia recently released their new album, Lonerism.  I actually found them after I saw their 1st album, Innerspeak album artwork online.  (beautiful right? right)

Good psychedelic indie rock.  New album looks promising, just heard a new single off the album (Elephant)...its good, and so is the simple teaser video for it.

2 East Coast Light Exhibits I Wish I Could SEE

Saw these two exhibits happening on the East coast, both look epic.  Check out a peak and the links to see...but basically if you are in NYC or near Philadelphia, you should check these OUT!!!!

The 1st is an installation by Yayoi Kusama at the Whitney Museum in New York City.  They transformed a room with mirrors and lights to create a surreal infinite space of light.  Pictures look unreal.  You may know Kusama for her polka-dot work, she's quite famous.  Look her up

The 2nd is an installation by Bruce Munro at the Longwood Gardens near Philadelphia.  Its a large scale outdoor/indoor light exhibit.  Knowing Munro's art and seeing pictures of this show just make me wish I was in the area to experience it.  Looks really impressive, and a great way to experience art.

Awesome Pop Up Book concepts by artist Mengyu/Jenny Chen, a Portland based artist doing some preliminary work for a comic book.  Simple yet super effective...Love the paper airplane...See the link below these pics for a few more examples or check out her site for more cool stuff.  


Video of the Venus Transit

Some awesome imagery of the Venus transit from earlier in the week....Had some weak welder goggles, and was a little late in looking, so was happy to find these impressive captures from Wired Magazine.  Enjoy

Inspirational Artist, Vincent Giard

Not too often these days that I come upon a blog/website that I could happily spend hours on. Well today I found one...Well actually one of the blogs I read ( found it and described it perfectly ("Vincent Giard is amazing"), and now I pass it along to you.  French Canadian artist Vincent Giard does work that seems surreal, emotional, and quirky, all in a less than perfect style. I don't speak french, and it doesn't matter, as its the images he includes that tell such a rich story.  Seriously spend 15 minutes and scroll thru some of the pages...they are awesome
