Damon Soule

Lovin’ this homage to Dali by Damon Soule! He’s currently showing new work at Fecal Face. I really need to clone myself and move one of myselves to San Francisco, assuming clones telepathically share thoughts/experiences? If they don’t I guess I could just fly there (or take a plane).

  • k, but first you have to learn how to spell san francisco!

    (sorry, all in good fun.)

  • for some reason i always misspell it and then have to go back and change it, i’ve done it almost every time i post about SF – its like permanently misspelled in my mind.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
