KEITH HARING AT THE DE YOUNG

A quick look at the de Young’s massive new Keith Haring retrospective, The Political Line. Focusing on Haring’s more deliberately political works, the pieces take on consumer culture, technology, sexuality, and racism head on, and span the length of Keith’s short but prolific career.

Paintings lightweight fascinate me. A series of deliberate (or perhaps whimsical) brush strokes that lead to a masterpiece. I want to see what goes on in a painter’s head. Do they know what they’re gonna do ahead of time, or do they simply build off of each previous stroke. Probably a combination of both. It’s […]

A FAMILY AFFAIR

Honestly I’m a bit conflicted about luxury. Part of me is like, yeah it’d be really dope to have a beautiful mansion, nice cars, and fancy clothes, but I’m also quite wary of what that lifestyle represents. I think out here in America, there’s this constant need to acquire more. More food, more clothes, more […]

Perfecting a craft is not an easy thing to do. The time and effort are necessary, but the passion is the key. What can you do for hours at a time, without so much as a glance at the clock. It would certainly seem that Sam O’Hare has found his. The visual effects artist put […]

At first glance, Alexa Meade‘s works look like the kind of painting you might want to hang up on your wall. The problem is you can’t really do that. At least, it would present a few challenges.

The main problem is plastic. Since it’s not biodegradable, if plastic is not buried in a landfill, it is eventually swept into the […]

I think if you truly have a passion for something there’s very little that can stop you. With passion, in the bleakest of times, you’ll find a way. This is my introduction to street drumming, and perhaps it is yours as well. Who knew cats got down like this? I don’t know, there’s just something […]

Today, I’d like share one of my favorite movies with you. Sweet Elizabeth brought this into my life many years ago and it has been my answer to “what’s your favorite movie?” ever since. I can’t even begin to relate to you how wet this movie is. Kof & Lan know. I watched it over […]

As somebody who’s spent extensive time getting blown and watching Planet Earth, I can say that this definitely looks like the movement. Coming to Discovery March 23rd, BBC’s original 11-part series, Life will give viewers a chance to see nature at it’s most extraordinary.

THE EGG HOUSE

My first question with this one is why. I think the architects answer would be, “Why not?” I suppose there are multiple uses for the “house”. Whether you want to make it an office, or a kick it spot, the Egg House will hold it down. Equipped with a bathroom, kitchen, bed and storage space, […]

LIFE UNDERWATER

Photos By Andre Shpatak Every time I’m at the beach I marvel at how little we know about the ocean. Just trying to post up in the ocean is an enjoyable ordeal. Scientists say that there may be up to 9 million undiscovered species in the ocean. And even if they were half right, that’s […]
