Giant Red Art

What is the first word that comes to mind when I say “China”? Whatever the word was, I’d venture a guess that it wasn’t the word “art” (or maybe it was art because my title gave it away). Well, there is a lot of change happening over in China right now and I found this little video over at Current quite interesting, as it offers a little peek at their growing contemporary art scene.

This great little video was produced by Ukachi Arinzeh.

Artist Spotlight: Cleon Peterson


The violent, mesmerizing, and brutally honest work of artist Cleon Peterson. In some paintings demon-like characters are attacking people, in other paintings similar actions are being carried out by uniformed figures. What is perhaps most disturbing is the realisation that we are drawn to such darkness; titillating news headlines, and bloody movies. The violence is inside of us all. More images below.
