Our friend Nico Craig recently completed a killer new interior mural using only a stamp. That’s right, a stamp! The Montreal based artist used a stamp that says “Land of Confusion” over and over in a stippling technique to give the illusion of two portraits on the surface. Take a peep a the science after the jump!
Erika Lizee recently completed an 8’ x 13’ x 2′ installation for the “High Priestess” exhibit at ArtShare LA, titled “Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine.” In this piece, Lizee is contemplating the idea of representing existence as a single point. If that point expands equally in all directions a circle is created. Move to any point on that circle’s circumference and create another circle of equal diameter. The overlapping of these circles creates the form the vesica piscis. “Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine” is an installation that uses the upright vesica piscis as a symbol that connects with the Great Mother. From two, come many. This form represents the portal of creation, both in life and geometry.
Buff Monster recently presented a solo show entitled “Melt With Me” that was on display last week in NYC. The show is a culmination of over a year of explorations in sculpture, from the smooth sexy large scale pieces to the gritty smaller concrete ones. The show is taking place at a great location right near my studio that he’s wanted to use for a long time.
Graffiti artist Jan Is De Man recently created a new mural installation at the Skatepool Griftpark. He designed and discussed his plans with the local skaters. Using matte non-slip paint, so the skaters don’t slide out and design elements help indicate where the turns and verticals are. Peep more the flicks after the jump!
Zemer Peled was born and raised in a Kibbutz in the northern part of Israel. After completing a BA (Hons) at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem she graduated with an MA (Hons) from the Royal College of Art. In recent years her work has been featured nationally and internationally in museums and galleries including Sotheby’s and Saatchi Gallery-London, Eretz Israel Museum-Tel Aviv and the Orangerie du Senate, Paris among others.
Zemer Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. Her sculptural language is formed by her surrounding landscapes and nature, engaging with themes of nature and memories, identity and place. Her works are formed of thousand of ceramic shards constructed into large-scale/small-scale sculptures and installations.
