I usually try to feature lesser known artists but I love Tom Sachs’ work too much not to post. These sculptures just become more and more relevant as time goes on.

    Glamorous satires. Wonder if the pieces were intended to be parodies of the companies’ styles themselves–

    Tiffany & Co. is just a “pretty little box” filled with pretty little pieces of metal.
    The Chanel pieces lend to a metallic, mechanic form of feminine brutality, relating to Chanel’s timeless yet innovative (chains and bows, etc) tendencies.
    Prada toilet…maybe this guy just doesn’t dig Prada.
    I really liked the Hermès one. It’s the most upfront commentary on consumerism related to designer brands.

    a toilet, a chainsaw, and fast food, man this guy deserves a frickin medal, somebody get this guy a bar of gold, maybe he can use it as a reference to sculpt a cardboard replica

  • Goldie Moore

    This Guillotine picture is the one they are using as a propaganda photo, saying the US Government purchased 30,000 of them to kill Americans!

Artist Makes Street Repairs Using Gold

Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman adapts the Japanese art of Kintsugi (golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (golden repair) in her ongoing series “Sidewalk Kintsukuroi.” Traditionally used to fix broken pottery, gold or silver is used to embellish the repair as it is seen as part of the object’s history rather than something to hide.

In Sussman’s case, filling cracks in the pavement pays similar homage to the changes that have taken place in the world around us. See more images from the project below or on display at the Des Moines Art Center until May 5th.

France-based illustrator Debby Wu asked four Asian girls she follows on Instagram a series of personal questions and created an illustration for each based on their responses. The questions ranged from the kind of software they use most on their computers to how easily they feel insecure in love. See more from “Asian Girls Insecure” below.
