  • Been seeing alot of rainbow colors used on black lately. Just got a vendors card with a similar color scheme.

    Wait, maybe that’s only twice…

  • Jeff thank you for putting so much time and effort into making Tangents happen. Great work! I had an awesome time! -tys

  • jeff, thank you for putting on a successful show.
    you and reid should be proud of yourselves.
    thank you for the amazing opportunity.

  • EmilyChou

    thanks for such a great show jeff! It was a real treat. Not to mention sick music.

  • Graeme

    Congrats to everyone involved in the show last night. Espesh Jeff and Reid.
    Really feeling the work by Ramsey. Has a Kandinsky-esque feel to it.
    Loved the purple cream colour field by Jennilee (I think she said it was a puddle?)
    Thankful to Hamada to get me in front of Kenichi’s work. Beautiful.
    Pretty Blamo! at Fortune after too. A good night.

  • glad you came out and had fun Graeme! definitely see some Kandinsky in the Ramsey drawings – it was also really cool to see probably 40% of a crowd that i’d never seen at other art shows come out to it

    packed house, maybe a little too packed – there was a good hour or so where i couldn’t walk from one end to the other.

  • victoria

    really wanted to go to that.
    instead i had my wisdom teeth removed.
    joy.

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
