Jasper Wong

Illustrations by Jasper Wong. I hung out with him in Hawaii last month, and the guy is as humble as they come.

    This really reminds me of the work of a classmate of mine, however, I am really enjoying the color palette that seems constant in his work. Also, glad to hear about his being humble, just that character fact works so well to contrast the boisterous style of the works.

  • He’s really an exceptional dude, but just really really really smelly. Like fermented tofu smelly.

    • haha how you gonna stand living together?

  • That is awesome ! Makes me think a little of Japanese artist Postics http://www.postics.com/ and also http://www.suprbo.com/2009/08/pop-reportage-from-paris-plage/

  • Vim

    wow absolutly amazing, looks like alot of effort has gone into these illustrations, I’d think mr t would get angry if he seen the last image lol, a rainbow pouring out of his hood and ghosts popping out of his nipples. Reminds me of katamari damacy. Mental ideas, Jasper Wong have you ever thought of using these as t shirt designs?

  • Kyle

    Anyone that combines Mr.T and Rainbows is ok in my books.

    So this is the dude that did all those crazy ass pieces for Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco! The posters are the one thing I look forward to on my way to work. Induct me into Jasper’s church of cool! Love it!

  • Chelsee

    almost looks like some parts of the works are in 3D.. wish I had a pair of 3D glasses to test that theory

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”

Click here to check out the incredible 3D tour created by Phoria as well as more images and video below. While the exhibition starts July 22 and runs until the end of the month, the exact location will only be disclosed via email tomorrow morning to those who RSVP!
