  • geometry mmmmmm

  • some of these seem almost carnal some of them seem bland. i admire this meticulous way of working

  • !!ABSOLUTELEE FANTASTICAL!!

  • Kick ASS Dan Bina Rulez

  • Cody

    Paintings like these are getting so default, I have seen these paintings by like 200 other artist. Damn!

    • i’m sorry it is ludicrous to refer to these paintings as somehow “default”. insinuating that they are somehow boring and unnecessary. if you are that immersed in contemporary art, and painting specifically, congratulations – however 99% of the world isn’t seeing enough work like this, and that’s why i work on this site everyday.

      please list some of these 200 artists because i would love to post about them.

      thanks

  • “Paintings like these”.. Isn’t everyones work is like 200 other people? There’s more artists working today then artists that have existed in all of art history. For instance the art on Cody’s site looks similar to Ben Jones, Le Merde, Matt Furie, Jason Reamer and many other artists. These are just people I know personally.. All of them live in the US. How many other hundreds are there? My work has been compared to like 100 other people. If you like this work.. WHY? If you don’t like it… Try to explain why. Personal taste is very very complex.

  • A quick note on deficiency and absence if I may. I never made a promise with these images. They were constructed with blatant disregard for conventional ideas on success or perfection. I like insufficiency. I can never seem to have enough single malt scotch around. If I ever reached a point of reaching full satisfaction in art or whiskey it would be by my own neglect.

  • look really psychedelic – and of course it’s from brooklyn, haha…. :)

  • looks*..

    it’s really interesting that a lot of these kinds of shapes have entered into this sort of collective vocabulary. like the geometric diamonds that seem to be in so much contemporary art on this site. i guess you could look at that repetition and assume it’s bland or default, but i’m not sure that’s it at all. i think it’s pretty cool to think of the visual vocabulary that moves in and out of fashion. i think that’s one reason i appreciate this site so much. it let’s me draw out the commonalities in a lot of contemporary art and figure out what seems to be relevant to artists working today and what the sort of collective aesthetic is. there’s a great dialogue between all of the work.

  • Reminds me of an updated Robyn Denny work. Some of the shapes are clearly derivative

  • whats important to consider is that the images picked for this site are picked by one person and as a result reflect his individual tastes and inclinations. i encourage everyone to do the xtra research and investigate the rest of Dan’s work along with other artists posted here.

    in regard to dan’s abstract work- its even better in the flesh. the work shown here is certainly not his best. and he is not an artist that i would consider trendy or following any fads or fashions. just a guy painting what he likes.

    collective conscious is an interesting phenomena. there are so many artists out there working- even if there were no internet- and every artist was just doing what they do- the powers that be (curators) would still be connecting and compartmentalizing styles and what they deem fashionable.

    thanks to david for mentioning robyn denny- good stuff.

  • Incredible. m.booooooom.com is great.

  • Tex

    Nice work, *hat-tip to Dan Bina.

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent HERE or on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
