The 6th Annual Supersonic Invitational

The 6th Annual Supersonic Invitational opens tomorrow (January 7th). Curated by Zach Tutor (of Supersonic Art) and held at SPOKE Art’s new NYC gallery, the show features nearly 40 different artists from around the world.

Especially in light of the upheavals of the past year, Tutor’s hope is that this year’s event will provide an important opportunity to reflect:

“I’ve always resolved myself to bring the most visually stunning artwork into view through Supersonic Art and with 2016 behind us I find this task more significant than ever before. In years past, the Supersonic Invitational has been purely just a celebration of creation. But this year, I’ve decided to make that celebration a reflection of us all by inviting leading portrait and figurative artists from the New Contemporary movement to help define the status quo of who we are and where we may stand at this moment in time.”

Check out more images from the show below or on display at SPOKE NYC January 7 – 28!

Webcomic Name by Alex Norris

Alex Norris’ webcomic name is Webcomic Name and each instalment ends with the exact same punchline. It shouldn’t be funny but there’s something really great about the innocent way Alex approaches each idea. Have a look at some more below!

Instagram of the Day: Artist Creates Vintage VHS Versions of Modern Movies

If you grew up in the 80s you’re really gonna like this Instagram account. Steelberg takes current films and makes fantastic retro VHS covers for them. Many of you will be too young to have ever gone to a store to rent a video but seeing these makes me kinda miss the whole movie-choosing ritual. Have a look at more VHS covers below.
