    amazing realism. 🙂

    Shit! These are good! They are so loose, yet incredibly tight at the same time . . . something I can never pull off. Nice colours too.

    There was a post here on BOOOOOOOOM recently that came across my rss feed, like i believe within the last month (not sure whether i was viewing them newest-oldest or vice versa at the time, but i saw it a couple days ago), and one of the images near the bottom of the individual blog-post was this typographical alphabet constructed out of horses and horse parts etc. Can anybody remember who the artist was? I’ve been combing my way back through recent posts one page at a time to no avail.

  • We forgive you Jeff. because your awesome.

  • what doesn’t come across here is the massive (i mean 10 ft tall paintings) scale that her paintings are. with that much detail.

    christa is part of a talent family, too. those palazollos are unstoppable!

    i really love the direction she is going in with these garbage portraits.

    one day i will own a christa painting when i can afford it!

    • wow i had no idea they were that huge!

  • just arrived via ffffound. really loving the fact that you are thinking abstractly about representational imagery and subject matter. not overly stated concepts give the viewer room to think. smart work for smart people.

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind

Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).



Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
