Unused artwork for Beck!

Mario Hugo’s fantastic work for Beck’s Modern Guilt album, that Interscope decided to pass on. I actually really like the cover art they went with (very classic) but these are really cool to see. After I found these I figured I would google to see who else had already written about them. +KN and changethethought posted about this in July haha.

  • These are all really great. I love the grainy texture in the abstract geometry of the last few, but wow, those wood block typography pieces are amazing.

  • Yeah, I remember these. They are rad.

  • This is incredible!
    I can see why its probably not so appropriate for a Beck cover, but in its own right it’s a beautiful piece of work. Lovely

  • These hurt my eyes they are so good.

  • great album art…really nice.

  • interesting! hey Jeff, how do you change your icon next to the time stamp? i see all these people with crazy ones and i’m so confused!

    This is great, I can’t believe this got passed over and they went with that terrible cover for Modern Guilt!

    The version they used looked like it took about 20 minutes, I thought they must have done it in a rush!

    I did but a t-shirt when I saw Beck’s last tour which must have been inspired by this, just not anywhere near as good.

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
