Apparently there are 5 easter eggs hidden within the art collection and research platform, Artsy. The Creators Project recently revealed one of them, which randomly involves Skrillex’s 2010 track “Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites”. Click here for an example or simply add “/skrillex” to the URL of any artwork listing on Artsy and see for yourself!

Artist Profile: Haroshi

haroshi-bullet

When I was out in Tokyo last year for Pow! Wow! my friends and I went out to visit Japanese artist Haroshi at his studio (his photo of us) and he gifted me this bullet made out of skateboards. I chose from a whole bunch and he could immediately tell what decks he’d used to make it based on the colours. I believe this one was made out of old Enjo boards. Anyways he’s one of my favourite artists and Alexander Mitchell just released a nice video portrait of him working in his studio which you can watch on Booooooom TV.

Artist Ian Strange Covers Building in Gold Wallpaper

Strange15

Known for staging large-scale, site-specific architectural interventions around the world, Brooklyn-based artist Ian Strange’s latest sees him in Poland, wrapping a 600 square-metre residential building entirely in gold wallpaper.

Titled “ZŁOTY” after the Polish term for “golden”, the project took over 3 weeks to complete. And while the wallpaper will gradually deteriorate over time, that’s part of the point as the piece is intended to reflect the local history of the area and the collapse of a once booming mining industry. See more images below.
