Urban Art: Barry McGee

Grafitti artist and painter Barry McGee (born 1966 in San Francisco) als known as Twister graduated from the San Francisco Art Intitute in 1991 with a concentration on painting and paintmaking. He comes from the Mission School art movement in the early nineties where he became known for his grafitti art. His artwork expresses a pessimistic view of the urban experience, which he describes as, "urban ills, overstimulations, frustrations, addictions & trying to maintain a level head under the constant bombardment of advertising". They are also very iconic with abtract colorful backgrounds like patterns of geometric forms or drops.

CSS - La LiberaciĆ³n

It's already been three years ago since the Brasilian electro-pop band Cansei de Ser Sexy released their first album "Donkey". At the end of august they'll finally release their second album "La LiberaciĆ³n" which is similar to the first one, a mixture of indietronic electro-pop. Well, not really a surprise. Unfortunately their new album doesn't seem interesting to me. I'll keep on listening to their first one.

Enough bloggin' for today.

Au revoir!

Result of an internet breakdown

Yes, that's the title of this drawing which was created last week. And this is what happens when a blogger doesn't have any internet access for about 2 hours. It was extremely boring! But at least I found something to do.

Yohji Yamamoto + Adidas = Y-3

"The "Y" stands for the designer Yohji Yamamoto, the "3" represents Adidas 3 signature stripes and the "-" signifies the bond between the two"
Since 2002, Y-3 has pushed the boundaries of fashion and sport, exploring an intriguing intersection between style and athleticism and initiating new dialogues between the people on the runway and the players on the field.
 Fushing the avant-garde aesthetic of renowned Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto with the breakthrough technologies of Adidas, Y-3 has defined an entirely new category within fashion, composed of equal parts luxury, style, wit, craftsmenship, and forward-thinking design.

Each seson, Y-3 delivers a view on sportswear that is startingly modern wholly unexpected, yet completely contemporary and of the moment.
With each collection, the renegade aesthetic of Yamamoto takes shape in the innovative fabrics and articulations of Adidas, telling a kinetic narrative of futuristic sport style. In September of 2003, the Y-3 experience became articulated in the brand's first freestanding flagship boutique, located in Tokyo, Yamamoto's hometown. In 2007, additional retail stores followed in Beijing, Paris, and Miami. Then the brand turened to New York in 2008, opening a flagship on W. 13th Street in February, and another in Soho in September. In 2009, Y-3 expanded with stores in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Singapore. In 2010, Y-3 opened its first Dubai flagship at 1111 Lincols Road, a retail and residential structure on South Beach designed by Herzog & de Meuron.
2011 will see the opening of additional Y-3 stores in major cities in the US, Asia, and Europe, which began with a London flagship opening last spring. Y-3's collection of men's and women's apparel, footwear, and accessoires continues to evolve, always evoking both the innovation of Adidas and the signature style of Yohji Yamamoto.

Artist: Clare Woods

Monster Field, 2008, enamel and oil on aluminium, 274×732 cm

Clare Woods' (born 1972) paintings are derived from her photographs of undergrowth and vegetation, which are taken at night, often in desolate, contested or overlooked locations such as areas of scrub or deep woodland. Painstakingly transcribed using layers of enamel paint on aluminium, the resulting images are often ambiguous and disturbing, claustrophobic in their detail, and psychologically-charged.
Clare Woods was born in 1972 and graduated from Goldsmith's College in 1999. She has exhibited in the UK, Europe and America and was shortlisted for the Beck's Futures prize in 2001. She is represented in the UK by Stuart Shave/Modern Art, London.
Recent exhibitions include The Dark Monarch: Magic and Modernity in British Art, Tate St. Ives, Cornwall; Monuments with a horizon line II , Buchmann Galerie, Berlin; Watercolours, Buchmann Box, Berlin; Cemetery Bends, Pilar Parra & Romero, Madrid.
Rock of the Night , 2006, enamel on aluminium, 274×1097x5 cm
Golden Dawn, 2007, enamel and oil on aluminium, 203×170 cm
Fantastic Zoology VII , 2009, enamel and oil on aluminium, 112×76 cm
