Brecht Vandenbroucke

Drawings by Brecht Vandenbroucke. I find there’s something really frightening about most of these.

  • there is a very particular kind of sinister atmosphere to all of these. they are great though! i like them.

    the last one definitely freaks me out. i can see myself having recurrent nightmares about one of those crazy armed inflatables unceasingly flailing around all alone in a crumbling, empty house… its constant motion and unchanging smile like some kind of grotesque caricature counterpoint to the solitude and decay surrounding it…

    holy fuck. saw his flikr. such an awesome sick guy

  • Hey,

    It looks like your blog is growing. Although I have been in NYC for 15 years, I still love P-Town and its peeps. Keep up the good work.

    Oh wow, I loved the last one, then I saw the skull. Scary shit. So amazing.

  • Gav

    brilliant work. love it all

  • so c.

    if i find these hilarious, does that make me a strange person?

    • yes. in fact it makes me very worried about you. you should go see a psychiatrist! 😛

  • These are….different. I feel pretty bad for the guy in the first one who’s getting his bum pinched by a giant! Also WACKY INFLATABLE FLAILING ARM TUBE MEN!!!! That one is AWESOME! I love the way that the scull is “secretly” in the background. Finally the robot one makes me a little sad.

  • these are really fabulous. the last two are my favorite – i think the last one is my favorite but the textures in the 2nd to last are really great. love this type of surrealistic “id” art.

  • juniper

    I like the skull in the wall in the last one
    P-TOWN REPPIN’
    haha

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
