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…

    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.

  • so c.

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

    • http://kingofallmonsters.com nelson

      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.

    P-TOWN REPPIN’

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.
