SO OBSESSED

Some vibrant nostalgia from the mind of Michelle Guintu. East Bay raised but SF residing, Michelle has developed her aesthetic simply by painting the things she likes. From 90′s R&B superstars, like Missy and Aaliyah, to Joe Montana paintings and McDonald’s installations.

Some nice images from Norwegian visual artist Rune Guneriussen. These pieces take conventional household items and place them in natural settings, creating a pretty interesting contrast in the process. Some beautiful landscapes and some nice colors, and at the least, they should make you scratch your head once or twice. In my book, that’s valuable […]

PAPUA NEW GUINEA

Photos By Eric Lafforgue It is estimated that more than a thousand different cultural groups exist in Papua New Guinea. Because of this diversity, many different styles of cultural expression have emerged with each group creating its own expressive forms in art, dance, weaponry, costumes, singing, music, architecture and more.

“I try my best to act like she doesn’t phase me. As if I pull girls just like her all the time. I even waited seven days before I called her. But she can play this game much better than I.” I wonder what it must be like for you pretty girl. To be liberated […]

I like to think that as humans our creativity is boundless. We can make something out of nothing, and something out of something else. Featured here is an example of such. Specializing in life-size sculptures made of recycled cardboard and glue, English artist Chris Gilmour has made a career out of creating large and small […]

From about 13 to 18 things were tough. I’d call those times the dark ages of fashion. With little perspective, and an interest in clothes over style, fits, if you could even call them that, were devastatingly hurt. Luckily it’s the ’09. On the verge of the great awakening, boys and girls from around the […]

A RUN IN WITH SPIKE

Looking to make the most out of my settled Sunday, I hit up Ashley round one to meet up and kick. “Wanna go on an adventure?” I asked. “Oh god.” she replied on the phone. “What are you trying to do?” I told her about my plans to photograph the Reserve store on Fairfax and […]

BLU DOES BOGOTA

BLU, the perennial superstar of the bowties, strikes again. This time in Colombia. With large scale works popping up all over the world, it seems as though BLU is emerging as one of the worlds best social commentators. To some a hero, to others a smooth criminal, his work speaks volumes about the current state […]

Bruce Davidson has to be one the realest cats to get behind a camera. First coming to prominence with 1959′s Brooklyn Gang, Davidson’s poignant photography has been able to capture life in the toughest neighborhoods of New York with an honest and emotionally charged style. Over the past 50 years, Bruce built up a track […]

Some inspiration for the out of the box thinkers. A few months before this quaint Texas home was to be demolished, artists Dan Havel and Dean Ruck came together to create this one of a kind installation. Who would’ve thought to twerk it like this though. I guess Dan and Dean. Known as the Tunnel […]

Shit’s crazy sometimes. Life is so exciting because rarely do you really know what’s gonna happen next. Last night Jay-Z came to the Pauley Pavilion at UCLA. With N.E.R.D, Wale & J. Cole alongside, the show sold out in a matter of days. Needless to say, cats were hyped. For the past three weeks I’d […]

I was just served a great big helping of poignancy from photographer Chris Jordan. His latest work, “Midway,” captures the actual contents of dead albatross chicks’ stomachs, found on the Midway Atoll (near the middle of the North Pacific ocean). Thousands of these birds die every year from starvation, but also from choking and toxicity […]

Josef is just incredibly dope at what he does. Believe me when I tell you that this collection of images is nothing in comparison to the portfolio he’s built up over a career that spans decades. Hoflehner’s black and white photography juxtaposes man-made monuments to incredible natural phenomena, documenting some of the most awe-inspiring sights […]
