  • estta

    You featured him at an interesting time, given his current controversies.

    • Tito Piccolo

      what controversies?

      • estta

        He’s deleted both of the tumblr posts about it, but basically he said some racist ‘jokes’, posted a racist comic, and then put up these real weird tumblr posts about his privilege. His apologies were not well-received.

      • i didnt see the original posts so its hard to comment

      • estta

        I tried to find them, but unfortunately he’s deleted both posts off of his tumblr.

  • Anthony

    Naoki Urasawa

  • Very nice! They remind me a lot of Jamie Hewlett’s work.

  • Tim Breese

    These are very cool

  • Love these characters. I’ve seen some of his work before. Not many people can pull off a style like this.

  • Really love James style , feel sorry for how the internet attacked him, If you got a chance to read his explanation/apology for the racism accusations, I think you can see he never meant for it to be taken how it was. Anyways good luck to him.

  • Amazing artwork. I love his style. This might be a dumb question but I kinda want to know if his work is all digital or traditional?

  • Marisol Cabrera

    Reminds me of Tank Girl!

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”
