Straightforward Street Art

Sean Hart is the street artist behind these works that feature large fonts and intense, direct messages. Hart describes himself as “the moon’s favourite lover, the heir of the sun…familiar to the stranger..I am an exile with a talkative glance…I exist…I am a poem…I am a poet and my poetry is a weapon loaded with the future.”

Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama + The Whitney Museum

Yayoi Kusama, whose amazing art I’ve previously blogged about, is everywhere lately. An exhibit has just opened at The Whitney Museum containing over 300 works by Kusama tracking her obsession with polka dots, mesmerizing lines, and captivating designs from her early years to the present. Additionally, Louis Vuitton has collaborated with Kusama to create clothing designs of her artwork. You can check out some photos from the exhibit as well as a video of the collection below. Have fun!

Bound Bodies

French photographer Julien Palast is the creator behind this offbeat collection of photos entitled “Skindeep”. While at first the shrink wrap seems to suffocate the models, it actually liberates their bodies, emphasizing the curves, muscles, form, and natural beauty of the human figure.

Visual Alchemy

Mi-Zo, comprised of German photographer Zoren Gold and Japanese graphic artist Minori Murakami, is the company behind these surreal, dreamy photos, enhanced with glitter, gel, metallics, and color, blurring the line between typical fashion editorials and art. Although they do use editing tools, Mi-Zo operates instinctively, saying that they “keep all possibilities open, even if there are ideas we are working towards. the danger of pre-determining how the image should look is that this can blind the sense of creativity. it is more realistic to be flexible to change directions when things start to not work out, and trust the gut feeling of what looks the best. as we realize what is appealing at each moment in different ways, it is the creative process itself guiding us.” Mi-Zo’s perspective on art is especially beautiful: “Art is the place to be free; it is the universal language.”

Art au Naturel

1,700 people participated American artist Spencer Tunick’s adaptation of Richard Wagner’s “der ring des nibelungen”, or The Ring. The work, a live sculptural performance, was created for the commencement of Munich’s 2012 opera season. Naked volunteers were painted red or gold and continuously directed to move or be stationary to execute his vision. Tunick has been creating live, nude works since 1992, challenging the belief that nudity must always be sexual along with changing the way the public views and interacts with art in a public space. Pictures are below along with a video (skip to :21)!

The Ring was organized and photographed by Max-Joseph Platz and commissioned by the Bavarian State Opera. Pictures via here and here. You can view more of Tunick’s installations on his website.

Entering Infinity

After moving to America alone in her 20s, Yayoi Kusama promised herself that one day, she’d “conquer New York, and make my name in the world with my passion for the arts and mountains of creative energy stored inside myself.” So began her journey into the contemporary art world in the 60s, in which she led orgies for hippies to paint polka dots all over themselves and befriended artists such as Andy Warhol. This exhibit is entitled the “Infinity Mirror Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life”, and is comprised of multiple mirrors and countless, tiny LED lights. They shift and change in both color and size, thus “suspending the viewer in space”, as Vogue put it. The room captivates and confounds visitors, making them lose their sense/understanding of time and spacial limitations, creating an ephemeral glimpse into an incredible infinity. Stunning photos and video of the exhibit are below, and also be sure to watch the interview detailing her childhood and journey throughout America and Japan, as well as her choice to live in a mental institution for the last 30 years.

Damien Hirst wrote a book on Kusama in addition to her autobiography. Also check out Kusama’s website.
