Graphic designers Thomas & Jurgen, Thunder and Bold and Olivier Vrancken initiated an exciting exhibition. They asked 30 artists, all with an interest or background in skateboarding, to create a piece of work on a deck. They’re sold by auction and this weekend is your last chance to buy one.
Karolis Strautniekas creates very smart, fine and warm illustrations. Often textured, balancing between surreal and realistic, his portfolio is a joy to click through. Personal favourites of mine are the cover illustration for DuJour and his latest work for Forbes.
At the end of the holiday season you’re probably planning your next weekend break. Why not try Dismaland? A Disney-inspired bemusement park created by Banksy in lovely Somerset, UK. The park includes work by Damien Hirst and several other artists.
Oh, and it’s free for kids up to 5!
This talented couple has been creating loads of great work recently. Joren & Ilse were invited to Horsens, Denmark for Horsens Public Art Festival. They designed and painted these illustrations on two silos, spanning a whopping total of around 150 square meters. Crazy cool.
Yesterday I bought the (purple and yellow!) vinyl release of Tame Impala’s new album ‘Currents’. If you enjoy good music and a good album cover, this is one to buy. The cover was created by Robert Beatty, an artist and musician from Lexington, Kentucky. His portfolio is a trip through brilliantly colourful and psychedelic work with a nostalgic feel. His Toilet Paper Cosmos Tumblr is worth following, too.
