All of the work is intended to question what it means to be human on this evolutionary path through time.  ~  Laurel Roth & Andy Diaz Hope Together Laurel Roth and Andy Diaz Hope represent an ideal of artistic collaboration.  They not only make artwork together, they co-create two artists' live/work cooperatives (one in San Francisco [...]

So Yoon Lym’s Cornrows: Paintings of Hair & Braids

Cruising through the internet the other day, I was stopped short by Yoon Lym's paintings of women's cornrows.  The arresting portraits of women's hair and braids, and the work that goes into the styles, made me want to study the intricate patterns and lines of shape. Lym, who is Korean, speaks about her journey as an artist: Although I [...]

Pink Floyd’s PR Stunt Recycles Animals

If you are into music, and perhaps no matter your age, you recognize the iconic Pink Floyd album cover for Animals.  The pig flying over Battersea Power Station in London elicits "that's from the Pink Floyd album", when we pass it on our way to/from Heathrow the first time we visit London. To announce the release of the band's new [...]

Aakash Nihalani:  Tapes Extraordinary Space

Sometimes simple solutions can present the most interesting context. Askash Nihalani works with lowly tape to change our view of the ordinary into something extraordinary by selectively placing graphics into space, highlighting "unexpected contours & elegant geometry". Nihalani says: I'm not trying to push a certain highbrow [...]

Jay Shells is a Metropolitan Etiquette Authority

      We live in times of constant information, constant movement, constant change.  Perhaps it is not surprising that social manners and etiquette have taken a back seat to bad behavior.  And perhaps we should not be surprised when our bad behavior is now called out by artists acting as contemporary Emily [...]

Katsuyo Aoki’s Predictive Dreams are Ceramic Wonders

According to the saying, we can only predict two things in life: death and taxes. Katsuyo Aoki's Predictive Dreams tend to be prescient of the former. Though the remnants of this death are a tad more elegant than one imagines our actual skeletal remains. Based on historical backgrounds, ideas, myths, and allegories, the work makes us stop [...]

Vincent Kohler’s Turnaround Series of Artful Baseball Bats

Baseball is the quintessential American game.  In fact, many non-Yanks I know, look at the game, and wonder at its pace, its simplicity, its invisible complexity, and scratch their heads. Full disclosure:  I am not a baseball fan.  But I love beautifully worked wood sculpture. Vincent Kohler's series, Turnaround has just a hint of [...]

Banksy’s Documentary: The Antics Roadshow

We love street art here at mixingreality. So when a friend sent us Banksy's new doc, we had to check it, and now we have to share.  Without further ado, (though you might want to skip to :55) Banksy's The Antics Roadshow:
