    I remember finding Glenn Brown on the internet in High School and that first painting was the one that I’ll never forget hah. Man’s style is incredible.

  • Untitled

    The first picture reminds me of the end of Evil Dead

  • Emily

    I just realized today that the skeleton one is based off of Van Gogh’s skeleton painting with the cigarette. at least it was in a van gogh book…are the others like that as well?

    The skeleton painting looks like Van Gogh’s ‘Skull with Cigarette’.

    These are seriously ‘awesome’ works of art! Truly remarkable!

  • MarlenePB

    These are absoloutely magnificently Done. The off colors make the mysteriousness double As attractive.

    These are very haunting.

  • Jon D

    Glenn Brown is a thieving bastard, who steals other peoples artwork, changes a few colours, and then sells it for large sums of cash, to gullible fuckwits! He is a scumbag, and everyone in the real-world knows it! Do NOT buy Glenn Brown paiintings. Do NOT support this artist. Do NOT post his work in any gallery, museum, or other venue, and allow people to pay to see his (so-called) work! Don’t believe me? Just read this, for proof!

    wow didn’t realise there was a history here – thats so strange, thanks for the link

  • warry_van_der_leen

    Yeah, Jon. Boldly spoken. Let’s kill Andy Warhol too…unless the D in your name stands for Dillinger. In that case I withdraw my comment. It would, however, fully explain yours…

    • Jon D

      Oh stop acting like your shoe-size, and start acting a little more like
      your alleged IQ. That way, i might decide to start taking your comment
      as one coming from somone with a developed brain! FYI, Andy Warhol’s
      dead, so your childish comment is valueless. He didn’t plagiarise
      people’s work, he actually modified existing images, as a comment on
      consumerist society. Glenn Brown clearly and blatantly does plagiarise
      other people’s work. If you’re too stupid to see that, then there really
      is no hope for you!

  • David James Wendel

    jon d there is no art without borrowing from the past, taking what someone has done and making it your own is/ or putting your flair on it is what many teachers suggest to there students now of days. Glen found his niche in tweaking others works into striking images of his own delight. deal with it.

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.
