    i love these because i hate cars

    • lapetitefaon

      Ahaha. Love them too! Mostly because I like how 2-5 are ridiculously cool looking paintings. Cars are kind of lame.

    you only showed his cars! those are his most boring ones, I love the ones of his son. the hamburger and skeletons are pretty cool too. he does paintings from canvases out onto walls as well. also semi-symmetrical diptychs. love the thick oil look, I based one of my works on his. it’s more difficult to pull off than it looks!
    nice to see an australian represented, we don’t have a lot of (good) famous artists, but we’re not that bad considering.

    Absolutely awesome. Shiny, loved and fussed over high tech speed machines transformed in an instant into immobile pieces of junk. So stationary, so undesirable. But the paint beautifully encapsulates the dynamics and energy of the last moment of existence as it were.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
