Came across some work by Laurent Perbos that I thought was pretty funny. I remember back at artschool my friend Dave installed a ping pong table in the concourse gallery. The great thing about it was he made the table incredibly skinny to fit a tiny gap (only a few inches) between the wall and the hand rail for the staircase. Had a net, paddles, everything – this instantly reminded me of that.
I recently contributed a photo to a wonderful project called, Hand to Hand. A whole bunch of really talented people donated images to be turned into postcards and sold by donation at shops around town. 100% of the proceeds go towards People of Many, a non-profit, literacy outreach program.
Heather sent all the contributors this great little book as a thank you for participating. I was happily surprised to find my work sitting along side another friend of mine – James Nizam.
Hit “more” for the full list of contributing artists and locations to pickup the postcards.
I was gonna post about the amazing artwork of Herbert Baglione and saw that Juxtapoz did me one better and dug up a fantastic interview with Baglione in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The interview is from The Run UP series put together by Fifty24SF Gallery and Upper Playground. Love the opening with Baglione drawing in the sand and the waves erasing the work. “…it’s not what you show people but how it makes you feel inside”.
I snagged a few images of his work, below:
