    Strangely cinematic…

    modest mouse? what?

    I thought the fist picture looks a little familiar. The second comfirmed my suspicion. The simplicity and aesthetically pleasing nature of these are pretty sweet. Really nice to look at.

  • The artist’s name is Matt Clark. He used to own and run the Houston gallery ( wehaveaproblem.com ) on Capitol Hill in Seattle. The space itself was highly designed and I remember Matt doing a really great large mural piece right before he closed the gallery as an homage to Chuck Jones and Wile E. Coyote..it was very inspired. His work is really conceptual and very in tune with his own insight into the world. I think he lives here in Portland now.

    • thanks for this info! does he have a website?

    • Ruud

      Is there any contact information of the artist?

  • Looks to me like it’s still http://www.wehaveaproblem.com/

    (as in “Houston, we have a problem” from the Apollo 13 mission)

    • yea thats the one i linked was wondering if he had a matt clark one, no worries

      thanks colin!

  • Lucinda

  • It looks a lot like Jouet d’adulte (2003) from the art collective BGL !

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
