    the paintings are quite beautiful and intriguing.
    i love the cold, ‘wet’ quality of each portrait.

    Looks a bit like vampire chic, but I do like the 3rd image.

    I like portraits wherein I feel assured of being able to best the subject(s) in an arm-wrestle.
    Nicely done.

    His work is really intriguing. I love that he takes such a traditional approach while addressing modern issues. Knight’s work and the role of technique: http://twurl.nl/7hwk2g

    The last one is gorgeous. The way he creates emotion in the art is amazing…

Music Video: HVOB “The Anxiety to Please”


Part music video, part art installation, the tracks off HVOB’s latest album are something of a dialogue (or rather a “trialogue”) with Austrian artists Clemens Wolf and lichterloh. Each collaboration operates as a self-contained piece (installation, music, and video), highlighting different materials and their mesmerizing transformations. Check out the captivating experimentations for “The Anxiety to Please” off the album Trialog below!

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December


Thanks to every single one of you who submitted work to the November Reader Submissions post, it’s really cool to see all the talent in this community!

For those of you who are new, these posts are the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other helps me see what work you like really pumps people up. I encourage you to do both! These posts get a lot of traffic so even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen by many (and definitely sends traffic to your own websites).

Please share your work here this month by leaving a comment below. The commenting system allows images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.


Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
